Teagan and Luke were working in a Melbourne pharmacy when they first crossed paths and it didn’t take long to realise they were both suffering a little affliction for which there’s no prescription – love! (Sorry.) The pair were a casual 65-floors above Manhattan when Luke proposed and they tied the knot, destination-style, in the gardens of a Balinese villa.
Bali-based globetrotting photographers, Terralogical captured the tropical affair and Teagan and Luke recruited Global Weddings to coordinate the day. Surrounded by palms and fragrant frangipani trees, the pair said I do under a bamboo arch just outside their villa, with lush white roses and ivy overhead (courtesy of Bali Weddings Florence).
According to Teagan, walking down the aisle was a highlight – “This unbelievable excited, calm, emotional and out-of-body feeling came over me. Walking towards Luke was one of my favourite moments, the world around me faded away, all I could see was him and nothing else in the world mattered. We were both so present in that moment – it was such a powerful experience.”
In true island fashion, there was a tropical downpour the night before the wedding – not ideal – but their Canngu venue had a solution – “Being the magical, spiritual place it is, they offered us a local Rain Man,” says Teagan, “who worked throughout the entire day, moving from temple to temple surrounding the four corners of the villa, praying and dancing the rain away. He kept the rain away for the entire night, allowing us to eat, drink and dance under the stars!”
