We at Handsome Citizens can not encourage you enough, if you are heading down the aisle; to consider a destination wedding. We were married at a private villa on the cliffs of Uluwatu, Bali, with a very few intimate friends, and we recommend it highly. No stress, no fuss, beautiful surroundings, warm weather, surf/yoga/massage all at your fingertips to get the day started, your own pool and private villa, wonderful staff to look after you, and make sure your day goes to plan. Are we selling you? If you need a little more persuasion or if you just fancy a sticky beak, take a look at this wedding shown on The Lane, an on-line wedding directory.
Magali Pascal, a French fashion designer; and now husband Matt, were married in a private villa at Canggu in Bali on 6th July 2013 with a 1920’s Gatsby inspired theme, together with 120 guests.

To focus instead on having a simple roof over our heads, (bungalow) which has little space for storing clothing; requiring us to limit the wardrobe; no car; no air conditioning and with only cold water. Best of all the location of this sea/tree change is none other than the area near by Uluwatu, the scene of many of the iconic images in the Morning of the Earth surf film adventure.. ☟
