Scottish couple, Heather and Brian first met in Perth and dated for a year and a half before getting engaged. On a cold, snowy Christmas day in Edinburgh, Brian surprised Heather by getting down on one knee with a vintage diamond and sapphire ring from the 1920s. "It was such a heartwarming way to asked her to spend the rest of their lives together," shared photographer Bonjo Abadi of Terralogical.
It took them another one and a half years to plan the celebration. Bali was especially chosen as the wedding location because Heather and Brian wanted to celebrate their love in the most natural setting. Their venue, Villa Sungai Tinggi, featured atmospheric views of black volcanic beaches and rocky cliffs that made the Canggu area such a paradise for surfers.
Dearest friends and family members witnessed as the couple recited their wedding vows under a stand-alone tree adorned with local Balinese flower garlands and roses. "Heather and Brian stood together in a circle of rose petals. It was so beautiful, how they were surrounded by the people who loved them the most," reminisced Bonjo.
The reception area was beautifully decorated with colorful flowers and bohemian details that perfectly suited the relaxed ambience. Heather herself looked as lovely as ever in a white dress complete with Indian-inspired henna painting on her hands. "She actually remodeled her mother's goofy meringue-like 1980s wedding dress. The veil was also the same one that her mother wore," Bonjo explained.
In the end, the whole day became a celebration of the couple's love, different traditions, as well as Bali's enchanting natural beauty and heritage. Bonjo added, "The wedding was so relaxed and fun. Heather and Brian climbed across rocks by the sea and explored local fishing boats. The smoke bombs they brought also added a surreal touch to the whole album."
