Tropical Bali Wedding | Sasha + Jason

Sasha & Jason's wedding was the final wedding of 2016 for Sparrow, and I think we saved the best for last! 

When we first got together to discuss the direction we wanted to take this one in, Sasha & Jason spoke of their love of travel, and together they have a very impressive list of destinations they've ticked off the list!  In particular they have enjoyed time in Bali recently, and together with the generous offer of friend's lovely home with it's tropical gardens, a Tropical Bali theme seemed the natural choice.  I was asked to keep things simple and stylish, in keeping with the atmosphere and natural beauty of the mountains, rainforests, terraced rice paddies and temples around Ubud, in the uplands of Bali.

And so we began, pairing neutrals and rose gold metallics, bringing in flower walls to serve as back-drops, furnishing the garden with natural timber bar tables and plush lounges, adding lots of small accessories and décor, and finally bringing it all together with absolutely stunning arrangements of florals and foliage by Liesa at Fleur de Lys Flowers.  The bride and her maids accessorised with pineapple earrings and flip-flops on their feet :)

As the big day dawned, Adelaide's unseasonal storm of the night before cleared and left us with a hot and steamy summer day, just what we needed to complete the authentic Bali vibe!

Guests arrived in the early afternoon to be greeted with fruit cocktails from the caravan bar and Sasha & Jason were married under an enormous fig tree with their four children by their side.

After the ceremony, Happy Hour was declared by the best 12-year-old MC ever, and guests gathered around the pool to spend a relaxing afternoon with more drinks, live music playing, and plates of canapes being passed around.  The customary speeches followed and such genuine, heartfelt words were shared, leaving barely a dry eye in the house!  The day was rounded out with dessert platters and plenty of dancing on the lawn, making this wedding one of my absolute favourites so far. 

There was such a genuine feeling of love and warmth running through the whole day.  We can't wait to see what adventures Sasha, Jason and their gorgeous family get up to next! xo
