Romantic Nusa Dua Elopement at Samabe Beach in Bali, Indonesia | Ry & Curtis





This Samabe Beach elopement is everything you dream of when you picture an intimate tropical wedding. Photographer Andre Lesmana Laksana of FIRE, WOOD & EARTH captured every moment of Curtis and Ry’s romantic Bali nuptials, and they are absolutely perfect. “[A] private elopement like this shows love in the simplest and purest form,” Andre says. “It represents the very meaning of marriage itself, which is a sacred union of two people, without the need of showing off or being flashy.”

As sunset approached, Ry and Curtis made their way to the beach, where they walked down the aisle hand-in-hand. Their heartfelt vows made for an emotional ceremony, and Andre recalls, “It was a very special experience for me, photographing two kind souls… blending into their personal space, and having the… honor to witness and be a part of such a private celebration of love… ” The newlyweds ended the day with a truly romantic dining experience in a candlelit cave, a first dance to the sounds of the sea, and sweet moments by a roaring bonfire.

You have to see this for yourself!

“I tried not to interfere and direct too much so the moments could flow naturally. The idea is always to capture the day as real as it is, in an artistic way. I love taking shots of the couple’s real interactions and not incorporating exaggerated poses, so when they look back at the photos, they can relive those beautiful moments.”

“While most of the people are competing to throw big scale weddings, Ry took a completely opposite approach for her wedding… A modest, private, and nontraditional celebration with just the two of them was everything she needed.”

“The celebration continued with a romantic private [dinner] in a beach cave. Decorated with lights, the cave looked so beautiful. The sound of the sea… perfected the mood of the night.”
