Influenced by the beauty of Balinese heritage, landscapes, and cultures, Natalie Palmer from Paper Diamonds Event Styling and Madison Hartley of Hart Floral, created the concept of this inspirational shoot during their annual Cakrawala Workshop. They took the ideas from their observation around the island, from misty rice fields to the Penjor-lined street all the way to the black volcanic beaches, and admit that this journey was indeed a feast to their senses.
"Mornings were quiet walks from Soori Bali out past the rice fields, through the nearby village as we made our way back to the coast. We were collecting different grasses and small daisy-like. We created this look by mixing more modern imported garden roses with all the local foraged frangipani, bougainvillea, hymenocallis or beach spider lilies, and hibiscus that turn from yellow to red once they have fallen from the tree," explained Madison.
They also deconstructed a traditional Balinese crown and included it in the centerpieces and boutonnieres. Imitating the bamboo Penjor in the rice fields that they saw, the Balinese metal work dangled out of the arrangement past the frangipani to sway in the coastal wind.
We love how this album portrays an impeccable visualization of a romantic, modern wedding with a touch of Balinese heritage. So, if you're dreaming of a contemporary tropical look for your nuptial, look no further for the inspirations.
