If you’re even tempted with the idea of a destination wedding, then today’s Balinese beauty might just tip you over the edge.  This smitten couple met while working in Indonesia, and not only did Dee fall in love with his gorgeous future wife Astrid, but he also found a deep love for this beautiful country too.  So when planning their wedding it seemed only natural to invite their family and friends to Bali to witness their commitment.

To keep things simple, they hired a villa which allowed all their guests to relax and get to know each other before the big day and hired stylist extraordinaire Joy Proctor to bring together Balinese and Western details together in a stunning combination.  Captured by the Groom’s brother and sister-in-law Ken and Kristy, the husband and wife duo behind Blush Photography, we’re head over heels for the exotic styling and intricate details.

From photographer Kristy –

Dee met Astrid while he was in Indonesia for work and it was love at first sight…literally. It’s easy to see Astrid is drop dead gorgeous, but she is also the sweetest person ever. No really. She called MY mom on Mother’s day before I did! That’s just how thoughtful she is. I’m so lucky to call her a sister and Dee is even lucky now to call her his wife.

Their wedding was not only beautiful, with the impeccable styling of Joy Proctor behind the scenes and the Balinese countryside as it’s backdrop, but it was so much fun everyone, I mean everyone – no matter their age or how fancy their dress, if they were holding on to a chair for dear life or an amazing planner who we loved for finding us the perfect villa and worked so hard to bring our vision to life – ended up partying in the pool!

There is something special about all weddings, but I have to say without a doubt villa weddings are my favourite. You spend so much time planning a wedding and it only lasts one day. Instead, with villa weddings, you spend almost a week together with your closest friend and family, giving so many more opportunities to make memories.If you are debating what to do for your wedding, look into getting a villa in Europe or Asia, you will not regret it!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
