Devi + Favian’s Uluwatu Paradise

An Earthy, Chic and Personalised Wedding in Uluwatu, Bali

Weddings in Bali always look perfect, no matter whether it’s the bride’s dress, the decor involved, or the reception venue itself. And that includes the wedding of Devi and Favian – here we have Devi talking to us about her perfect day and a little about her love story.

“Our journey started when we were both in elementary school. Born a year apart, we were never in the same playground together. And after elementary school graduation we moved to different parts of the world. I relocated with my family to Surabaya and Favian moved to Singapore. Though we met briefly in 2002 and were properly introduced, our friendship (or acquaintance) had never made it to MySpace, Friendster or any popular social media at that time! Until in 2013, he clicked “add friend” on my Facebook profile and I clicked ‘Approve”…”

“The rest was history and it seems like the world has conspired to make a path for us to be together. After several successful dates and lengthy phone calls, we decided to date exclusively in early 2014. When we traveled together to the holiday island of Gili Trawangan in West Nusa Tenggara, Favian suddenly got down on his knees and proposed to me. He was not prepared with the ring, but he got all the courage to pop the question! On Gili’s sandy beach, he grabbed a coral he found nearby and asked me to marry him! I was caught in the moment, and with Favian, it felt so right. So I said YES!”

“I soon contacted my favourite bridal gown designer ‘Elly of Be Gorgeous’ and checked to see whether she was available to do a custom-made dress. She designed a perfectly beautiful gown which I had no idea how it would turn out as the wedding day grew closer. I was anxious and just couldn’t wait for the final fitting of my gown. I knew it was going to be beautiful and I knew that I would like it, but I just had no idea how the final result would be. When I tried it on, I just couldn’t believe my own reflection in the mirror! The high cut on my dress was the highlight of it and what made the dress stand out from other variety of wedding gowns I had seen before.”

“Having a cliff as a backdrop is a must, but we choose Uluwatu specifically because of her gorgeous view of the ocean from the cliff. We particularly like Latitude Villa because of its size, not too big but just enough for an intimate party with 150 close friends and family.”

“The most memorable moment has got to be the morning my make up artist came and started to do my hair and face. Next thing I know, I put on the wedding gown and the feeling was just amazing. I thought to myself, ‘this is it, this is my wedding day. I have to believe that this is my wedding day’. Another moment was when I shared a heartfelt moment with Mary, my bridesmaid that I had known since we were 13 years old, so technically we grew up together and had always been each others confidant. During the reception, she wrote a wonderful and funny speech about how we feel more like sisters than friends.”

“Having a wedding planner solves a lot of the problems. We are thankful that Sherly from Twogather Wedding Organizer did a wonderful job for us, especially when filtering the vendors we need based on what we were looking for. It makes the planning more efficient and objective along with her professional opinion.”
