Italy + Bali: PERFETTO!

Davide, an Italian gentleman from Torino, and his cantik Balinese fiancé Ratna wanted to tie the knots here in Bali.

They had apparently contacted a variety of wedding organizers but “got stuck” with us, and later they shared with us the reason for their choice:

Your Team of Bali Rainbow Weddings was always available.
You came to our house whenever it was needed – we didn’t have to go to Denpasar to meet you in your office. That was very important for us because both of us work and it would have been difficult to regularly visit your Team in the BRW office
Your information was always correct; you know your stuff.
Minor issues were solved immediately, sometimes within hours.   That’s what we call speedy service J

It was actually the first time that we had an Italian/Balinese couple to take care of – but with the proactive support from the Italian Consulate and the Honorary Consul all formalities were handled in the most professional way.

Wedding
Davide and Ratna had requested two flower girls, so we asked our good friend BJ whether her beautiful daughters would be available.   Both girls were excited to do the “job”, and here they were in their finest folkloric dresses, and leading the couple to the decorated wedding venue at the Sanur Golf Club’s stunning landscaped garden shadowed by its century-old huge trees.

Pastor Made welcomed all 40 guests and started the wedding with a baptism ceremony for Ratna. Then the vows, the rings, and God’s blessing – always such an emotional moment to see two loving people committing themselves to each other.   The Registrar officially declared Davide + Ratna “husband and wife”, and everybody was cheering J

Cocktails + Reception
While Davide + Ratna were busy taking photos with the BRW photographers in the Golf Club Garden, the guests proceeded to the beautifully decorated Reception area with their 60 lampions where the experienced and well prepared team of the Sanur Golf Club FB Department were already waiting for the orders.

When the couple later sat down with their friends, the East/West buffet started.   “How tasty, lezaat sekali, I want more, mau lagi!”

So much joy, Italian families socialising with their Balinese in-laws, entertaining the kids, dancing to the perfect live music – Davide & Ratna were all over the place sharing their excitement to finally be legally married.

What a wonderful and memorable day!  Everybody returned to their houses or hotels tired but overwhelmed with the unforgettable experience of a wonderful wedding day J

After Wedding Service
Our Team submitted the Akta Pernikahan (= Legal Wedding Certificate) to the Italian Consulate where it was promptly processed – as to ensure that also the authorities of the Torino Registrar’s Office is informed about Davide’s and Ratna’s new civil status: Legally Married J

Couple’s Rating
After a few days we received the couple’s rating about our Team’s service quality: All excellent!
Of course that makes us very happy because we can see that all our hard work is appreciated, and that we could contribute to another perfect wedding in Bali!
