A fairy tale wedding in Jimbaran, Bali

Photography by: Brenda Reimers & Surya Wijana

Bali is the place to be for weddings, because there are so many nice and beautiful spots and places on the island. Couples love to have their wedding in Bali.

Last week I placed a post of the Shaba. Wednesday 12.12.12 the groom Mark and his bride Maddy celebrated there wedding at this beautiful place. At 12:12 pm they had a ceremony at the beach of Jimbaran, followed with a Balinese ceremony in the afternoon that took place in the garden of the Shaba. I was the lucky one to be their wedding photographer…

The couple looked beautiful and the whole wedding day was great.  It had all aspects of a fairy tale wedding. Beautiful, emotional and all had a lot of fun.

I took many photos, too much to show them all. But I like to share a few…

The Shaba, a fairy-tale place

Last week I had to photograph a wedding in Jimbaran. The ceremony took place at the beach of Jimbaran as well as in the garden of the Shaba. The Shaba is a three suite tropical, luxury hotel.

Wow, what an incredible place is the Shaba. The unique architecture and stunning interior design, with not a detail overlooked, is amazingly beautiful and when the evening starts and they lit all the candles you feel you are in a fairy-tale…

A day at the beach…

With the temperatures around 30 degrees every day it is very nice to spent the occasional day at the beach.

We live only 5 minutes walk from the beach. Living here permanently we do not have time to go every day so for us Sunday is beach day. It’s like the locals they also go on Sunday. I really enjoyed my Bali beach Sunday again.

The beaches in Bali are great. They are wide with big waves rolling in. There is always a nice mix of tourists and locals.  I took some very nice happy photos for you to enjoy …

YOYOI Stylish Fairtrade

I’m back again in Bali, so this will be my last ‘Dutch’ post for now. Next week posts from Bali and beyond… (Asia) will start.

This time I like to put in the spotlight Sade Joella Sulkers. She is my niece, the daughter of my sister. Sade just started with her company YOYOI Stylish Fairtrade. YOYOI Stylish Fairtrade sells fairtrade baby packages.

The packaging (offer basket), the pillows, the jar- and diaper bags, all is made by small family companies in Bali.  Balinese housewives made the crochet flowers for the pillows. The dolls, the colourful cards and cute little Buddha soaps are special made for charity, like the Bali Street Children and Kolewa Foundation.

The designs of the pillows, jar bags and diaper bags are designed by Joyce Reimers, the mother of Sade. She combined Indonesian batik and traditional Dutch printed fabric for her designs. It looks fantastic!

The families and housewives are happy with YOYOI Stylish Fairtrade, they make some business and the Bali Street Children are grateful that YOYOI Stylish Fairtrade buys the dolls and cards.

If one of your family members is pregnant, or your friend or colleaque don’t hestitate to buy a YOYOI baby package, it is great gift… and the newborn baby already helps another child.

For more information: sade@yoyoi.nl or go to YOYOI Stylish Fairtrade facebook page (Dutch language).
