Bali – vows un­der the night sky be­come life­time mem­o­ries

Wedding Destinations - - WEDDINGS ON LOCATION -

Ex­chang­ing vows be­neath Bali’s trop­i­cal night sky will be­come a life­time me­mory for cou­ples and their guests.

Bali leapt onto the world stage af­ter the “dis­cov­ery” of iconic Kuta Beach by west­ern surfers some 40 years ago. Yet Kuta has a lot more to of­fer. This former fish­ing vil­lage has many small and in­ex­pen­sive lodg­ing es­tab­lish­ments restau­rants and shops as well as five-star ho­tels able to cater for the most elab­o­rate cer­e­monies. Whether a cou­ple’s wed­ding dreams call for a sim­ple cer­e­mony on the beach or an elab­o­rate event in the most re­mote ar­eas of Bali - all is pos­si­ble on this, one of the most ro­man­tic is­lands on the planet.

When mar­ry­ing in In­done­sia cou­ples must de­clare a re­li­gion. Ag­nos­ti­cism and athe­ism are not rec­og­nized. The Civil Reg­istry Of­fice can record mar­riages of peo­ple of Is­lam, Hindu, Bud­dhist, Chris­tian-Protes­tant and Chris­tian-Catholic faiths. Mar­riage part­ners must have the same re­li­gion, but one part­ner may make a writ­ten dec­la­ra­tion of change of re­li­gion. Mar­riage Cer­tifi­cates will be is­sued by the Civil Reg­istry on the same or next day. A sworn English trans­la­tion of the mar­riage cer­tifi­cate should be ob­tained.
