Melissa & Dane
This mesmerising destination wedding in Bali was filled with cocktails, flowers and fun!
After meeting and falling in love as teenagers, Melissa and Dane remained inseparable, travelling the world together and getting engaged on the Pont des Arts, or ‘Love-Lock Bridge’, in Paris. They decided to get married on their 10-year anniversary in Bali with their closest friends and family. The couple said their vows in a glass chapel overlooking the ocean that was lined with candles and white rose petals, exchanging their heartfelt vows. Afterwards came the reception, where guests sat under a canopy of glittering light bulbs and fresh green vines to enjoy a delicious five-course French dinner and lots of cocktails – c’est magnifique!
