A Crazy Cool Bali Wedding: Myles & Barbara

What is it was all the exotic weddings I’m getting submitted recently? I think the universe must be telling me I deserve a long, sunny holiday!

Well when Myles & Barbara’s Bali wedding landed in my inbox I just about spat out my cuppa with the anticipation of blogging it. Have you ever seen a wedding party so a) cool, b) expressive, & c) hilarious? No, me nigher. I couldn’t wait to hear more…

“Myles proposed whilst sitting on the toilet, pants around his ankle. In Elfish,” explained Barbara. “It really was very romantic… I promise you. We just wanted our wedding to be a big party, fun and happy with a little bit of looseness mixed in.”

“F- me, where do we start with my favourite part? Erm… the thirteen best men. Dressed as horses. My groom in a bright pink suit. Being a Rock n Roll Bride and walking down the aisle to The Cult with my three bright bridesmaids. The awesome lesbian Mother celebrant who entertained and involved the crowd. The best man dressing as the pope for the speech. The groom starting his speech in Arabic quoting Saddam Hussein. Our video from the people who could not make the wedding – featuring a 70 year old couple, stark naked (you gotta see the video – posted below). Everyone diving into the pool… including me in my dress and my mother! The food was pretty good too apparently.”

Yes these guys are amazing all round. I’m thrilled to share their wedding today… oh and the videos? Yes, watch them!

    This wedding looks fab! We’re getting married in Hawaii this year and my man would love to wear a short-suit. Where did you guys find the red one!? I love the splash of colour!

    Its actually hot pink suit and It’s by Marc Jacobs.We got it from Bloomindales in New York. The blue suits that the best men are wearing came from Uniqlo. Im sure you can find something on the internet! It is such a fun suit and everyone loved it.
