Stunning beaches, a lush tropical interior, temples and traditional villages make this mystical island a beautiful wedding destination.
Bali is the most western island of the Lesser Sundas and the most visited in the Indonesian archipelago. Its excellent beaches are the main draw, the dramatic coastline washed by warm water and lined with beachfront hotels, bars and restaurants.
Alternatively, explore the Bali’s interior, with its lush tropical forests, verdant rice terraces and beautiful temples. Bali offers so much more than just wonderful beaches; it is an island steeped in history and tradition. Highlights include the Kintamani volcano, and the energetic colour of local dances, festivals and handicraft markets.

In Indonesia it is not possible to have a civil‐only wedding. The law in Indonesia requires that all marriages be officiated by both the registrar and a religious minister. A representative of your religious beliefs must perform the religious ceremony.
There are a few restrictions in terms of location for ceremonies. It is not possible to be married in Balinese/Hindu Temples, and beach weddings are only recommended on private beaches. Most weddings take place either in a church or in the grounds of hotels.
