Bali Wedding + The Istana + Sibing and Lei

In September I went to Bali for the second time this year to photograph a super gorgeous wedding – seeing Sibing & Lei was a bit like catching up with old friends as this is the third time I have photographed and spent time with them. Their wedding was too epic for words. From the jaw-dropping venue (The Istana villa) to the meticulous planning and styling by wedding planner extraordinaire Karen (Cher Ange), all the personal touches Sibing & Lei put into the wedding teamed with great family & friends made this wedding so very special. And only in Bali (or somewhere equally hot) can you end the party like they did!

Sibing & Lei, I wish you a lifetime of happiness eating, playing and travelling together.
