Who can ever forget making an eternal pledge floating on water ? With temple maidens leading the bridal procession on flower strewn paths, and the village high priest abundant with blessings ?

Sinewy dancers set dainty steps for tiny bridesmaids. Village musicians keep up the tempo while a laughing ocean provides the rhythm. At the beach reception, a feast is prepared. Attendants gaily dressed in celebration songket and flowers tucked in their hair. The intimate party that takes place for the evening is rehearsed and ready to unroll. Handmade menus and messages handwritten on lontar leaves lie on beautiful table settings where giant floral arrangements scent the air.

Every event is a custom made, bespoke affair. Just make sure you bring extra battery chargers and extra rolls of film.
