Magic Bali wedding at Atas Ombak villa
Above all let me express my heartfelt gratitude for being part of this wonderful wedding of Jef & Juliana. There are a few things that came together which makes this wedding special.
The Venue ! This villa wedding took place at ATAS OMBAK villa – one of Bali’s most spectacular villa wedding venues.
Secondly, the weather. This wedding took place at the height of the rainy season in Bali. And indeed during the last 5,6 days before the wedding, it had been raining excessively – every day.
And on that morning the same – rain, rain, rain… I was already fearing the worst… And shortly before lunch, when it was still pouring I was mentally preparing myself for photographing a complete wedding in rain.
But then the ‘magic’ happened. At around 14.00 h the rain stopped. And it did not return until the evening.
It remained very clouded during the whole day. But that was a blessing in disguise. Why ? Firstly for the guests: Because it was not hot.
But more importantly for the photographs. The thing with overcast skies is that you can get a beautiful soft light for photographs.
Ad to this: One of the most gorgeous brides I ever had the pleasure to photograph and the end result speaks for itself.
The actual wedding ceremony took place also very late in the afternoon. Again something that got me worried. But it all worked out fine.
We even had some time left after the ceremony to head down to the beach for a short photo session with the newlyweds.
The only downside was that halfway into the reception the rain came back and everything had to be rushed under cover.
Yet, it was still a wonderful Bali wedding which I enjoyed being part of very much.
Jeff, Juliana – thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity. It was truly an honour and a pleasure at the same time to be part of this fantastic event.
