Balinese Wedding Ceremony
Get married in Bali! Celebrate your love through traditional Balinese rituals in this unforgettable romantic religious ceremony. The ceremony is symbolic, this is not a legal wedding.
Balinese Wedding Ceremony
After being picked up from your hotel at 2 pm, you'll be taken to Kemenuh, a traditional Bali town near Ubud, where you'll celebrate your wedding. You'll start with the purification ceremony: according to local tradition, the bride and groom must be purified with water from the town's sacred springs to cleanse themselves of negative thoughts and energies before uniting their souls in matrimony.
The ceremony will be performed in a typical Balinese house, where you'll first be welcomed with tea and coffee. You'll then be dressed and coiffed in the style of Bali royalty, in traditional wedding clothes known as Payas Agung.
A Balinese priest will perform the wedding rites, which will be attended by a group of men and women in typical Balinese dress. After different symbolic rituals and offerings, you'll cut a thread which represents the change from single to married life.
To conclude the ceremony, your Balinese guests will carry you on thrones in a procession to a family temple, where you are free to pray according to your own beliefs.
Once you've finished the traditional rituals, you'll enjoy a romantic meal (including chicken, vegetables and rice). Savour the authentic Balinese cuisine accompanied by a bottle of local wine.
As part of your experience, you'll have a photographer documenting your special day and compiling an album for you to remember the ceremony, and you'll also enjoy typical Balinese musicians playing traditional songs throughout the day.
Around 9 pm, you'll be dropped off back at your hotel.
