You know Oliver Fly as one of our favorite Paris-based photographers, but today he’s bringing us an inspiration shoot set in exotic Bali, Indonesia. Thoughtfully pieced together by Bali Event Styling, this is a tropical affair done right, and we’re so ready to grab ourselves a coconut drink and dive right in.
From Bali Event Styling… Khayangan Estate is Bali’s — if not Asia’s — quintessential destination wedding venue. Every inch of the property, from the moment one enters through its imposing teak wood gates, evokes an authentic aura of timeless elegance, an otherworldly environment that caters to modern day fantasies.
Our approach to the shoot was fine art with tropical accents melding soft pastels with a mixture of import and local florals and greeneries, stylish natural wood decor – Balinese arch and Louis chairs — with a spritz of gold cutlery, gilded tea lights, and crystal glassware for elegant effect.
Our wear florals featured Peonia, Astilbe, Astrantia, Eucalyptus populus. Eucalyptus nicolii, Bouvardia and Hellebores. The tablescape consisted of the same with additional Eustoma, Rose. and Frangipani, the latter lending a Balinese hint. The Table was layered with a light gray linen table cloth, two-toned silk runners, accented by silk ribbons and soft pink linen napkins.
We positioned Elephant ear leaves, coconuts, and vines at the entrance of the aisles. For the flower shower, we used Frangipani inside a woven basket made from coconut leaves. The natural wood wedding arch with Balinese carvings featured a floral mix of Anemones, Smilax, Astrantia, Ammimajus, Israeli cuscus and Salix.
Last but not least, we created welcome drinks using kelapa muda (young coconuts) with Frangipani flower, leafs, and sporting all natural bamboo straws.
