Semara Luxury Villa Resort Uluwatu – Bali, is perched high on limestone cliffs overlooking the ocean. Thu and Richard chose this piece of paradise to get married. A middle point of destination that friends and family from all over the world could meet and enjoy a week long of holidays and celebration.
Richard was from Canada and was studying in Brisbane when he met Thu one night quite a few years back. It was instant attraction. I know. I was there!
I was also there, to witness their amazing wedding… full of love and laughter… lots of Sunshine and humidity… made even better with cocktail drinks flowing from midday to midnight!
I flew solo to Bali for this wedding…but had the pleasure to shoot alongside the photographers at Terralogical and videographers at Balimetro. These are my photos from the day.
Richard surprised Thu with some very special gifts!
Meanwhile, in Villa Pawana next door…
Richard told me that his cuff links were very special… they were his Grandfather’s. I love when there are meaningful things incorporated on the wedding day.
The pearls that Thu is wearing was a gift from Richard’s Mother… an heirloom handed down..
The wedding ceremony took place at the same place the Bride was getting ready… The beautiful Villa Tamarama. There had been fears that it would rain as March is monsoon season in Indonesia… however, Thu and Richard were blessed with clear blue skies!
Thu and Richard wanted to take advantage of the beautiful landscape in Bali… and how could we not incorporate the iconic rice fields. Thu wore a beautiful Carla Zampatti gown for this set of photos.
Finn’s Beach is a beautiful private beach located beneath Semara Lxury Villas. We had some Bridal photos here just before reception commenced.
One of Thu’s favourite moments of the wedding day was dancing with her father…
Partying started with an explosion of some fantastic fireworks display off the cliff top.
Thank you Thu and Richard for one the best overseas trips I have had for a while. You guys are just perfect for each other, and I am so happy to have been part of it… from the day you both first met… to the day you became husband and wife. With so much love, Trang
