Conrad Bali Indian Wedding of Atika and Krish, our Indian couple flew from the U.S.Atika and Krish opted for the beautiful scenery of Bali, not by chance one of the favorite regions for couples from all over the world to exchange their vows of love and unite their lives. And so, this is how we spent four unforgettable days in Conrad Bali. Conrad Bali is situated in a picturesque setting, offering beautiful views of the ocean and landscaped gardens.
Indian weddings are traditionally multi day affairs, step by step we follow and immortalize the ceremony, which fully respects the demands of Indian tradition in this regard.
Day 1 of Bali Indian Wedding, Mehendi and Welcome Party
The day before the wedding was for the Mehendi Ceremony. The bride’s hands and feet were painted with henna in the Mehndi technique. Mehndi is also believed to bring good luck and fortune. The depth of the color is often associated with the strength of the bond between the couple in wedding traditions. After the Mehendi, the couple, family and the guests all gathered for the welcome dinner, welcoming by the fire dance show to greet all the guests whose coming from all around the world.
Day 2 of Bali Indian Wedding, Haldi and Sangeet
Day two started with Satyanarayana Puja and Pellikoduku Puja, followed by Haldi Ceremony in a floating garden. This ceremony involves applying a paste made from turmeric (haldi), sandalwood, and other ingredients to the bride and groom’s body.
The Haldi ceremony is a visually vibrant and photogenic event, it is typically a joyful and colorful event. The family and friends gather around the bride or groom in a festive atmosphere with their enthusiasm, laughter, and positive energy. After the ceremony all guests together with the bride and groom went to Eight Degrees South for a pool party. The second day was closed by the Sangeet ceremony in . The term “Sangeet” itself is derived from Sanskrit and means “sung together.” The guests dressed up in colorful and festive attire, like traditional outfits and the emphasis is on vibrant colors and ornate designs.
Day 3 of Bali Indian Wedding, Wedding Ceremony
The Big “Wedding” Day. Our groom Krish was very elegant and looked handsome. Once the groom was ready to go, together with the family and friends, reached the Water Garden where the ceremony took place, with a music parade and they had been received and welcomed by the bride’s mother. Our stunning bride Atika dressed-up beautifully in her red gorgeous Saree with so many details and of course Mehandi, which is the henna tattoo on her hands, and jewelry. The charm on her face and the beauty of her dress is so impressive that we were amazed.
Atika and Krish took the wedding ceremony in the Water Garden of Conrad Bali adorned with red, orange, pink and white flowers. They were reciting invocations and outlining promises for their married life just begun, that they hope to be as long and happy as possible. After this passage, the couple officially became husband and wife.
As the sun began to set Atikah and Krish changed out of their traditional outfits into black tie for Krish and a stunning dress for Atika. The festivities continued late into the night after the newlyweds and guests immersed themselves in traditional Indian dances in the Kecak ballroom, where everyone was able to melt the accumulated tensions and tiredness, letting go of moments of pure leisure and laughter.
Their wedding was wonderful to be a part of and we thoroughly enjoyed transforming their Hindu wedding into a visual legacy and capturing the beauty and essence of their marital union.
