Trust a couple based in Bali to have one of the most relaxed and happy wedding days we’ve seen in a little while. Sophia and Greg held the second of the three wedding events in Sydney (the first being a Hindu Balinese blessing by her Balinese father, and the final big reception is set to take place in Bali next June). The Sydney affair of 50 guests were set to celebrate with their nearest and dearest in Oz – particularly those too old to travel.

Said Sophia, “we were just hoping for a simple, relaxed day with sunshine, great company and delicious food.” And boy did they get what they wished for by the looks of these pics shot by the very talentedLara Hotz, with plenty of love, laughter and sunshine dancing around in the air! “It really was such a glorious sunny day and the sunshine was infectious,” said Sophia. “My husband and I were having so much fun that we delayed our departure by water taxi by almost two hours. We were literally dragged out by our mothers.” A glorious day indeed.
