It truly was amazing.

Thank you again.
Much love from Alana & Matthew 🙂

Thank you for everything you did for us, you were so professional and organized! I never felt overwhelmed by the planning at all because you space everything out over the months before the wedding.
I laugh now looking back that I was thinking of organizing it myself! I’m going to miss your emails and working with you!
When we come back to Bali we will be sure to let you know and pop in and see you. My mum has already had someone ask for your number after seeing our photos on Facebook. Thanks again Katie!!

It’s been almost two weeks since our wedding day, and my weeks have been lost without you. lol You catered to all our needs with professionalism, with efficiency and with an exceptional understanding to what couples need and want for their wedding. There were some requests I thought before asking would be impossible to deliver, but you made me feel comfortable enough to ask, and better yet you came through with it all!! Our day was more special than words could describe. Honestly we could not have done it without you and all my friends here in Perth have been hearing of Katie the goddess. Thanks Katie you made organising our wedding in Bali a dream.

we would like to say thank you so much for all your hard work and making our dream wedding come true!
Dru and I had the most special day, we loved every second of it.
After so much planing you and your team looked after every single detail, and on the day everything ran so smoothly and allowed us to relax and really enjoy ourselves!
thank you again and we would recommend anyone considering a wedding in Bali to talk with Lee at Baliku weddings

We just got back home and still can’t wipe the smiles off our faces. Thank you so much to you and Carol for making the day so wonderful and it going off without a hitch. Everything you arranged for us on the day was brilliant and the feedback we got from our guests was just glowing. It’s great to get people come up and say it’s the best wedding they have ever been to. We can’t thank you enough.
We cannot speak highly enough on the work you and Baliku Weddings did for us on our special day.

This is a HUGE thank you and terima kasih to our wedding planner extraordinaire, Katie, of Baliku Weddings who not only helped us plan a day we will never forget but also made the process of planning from another country a lot less stressful.
We selected to go with Baliku Weddings versus others mainly due to Katie’s professional attitude and attention to detail. She was always ready and prompt in her follow ups & responses to our queries and most of all honest and patient with us. We knew after several email exchanges she was the one for the job.
Our wedding was like a dream come true right from the sunset ceremony by the Indian Ocean to the unforgettable ending on the dance floor under the stars. Katie made sure things went smoothly up to the very end. Her choice of vendors exceeded our expectations especially with the caterer (special thanks to Max & his crew, they were absolutely amazing) and decorators ( the pictures say it all !!). It was definitely a night to remember with our family & friends. We definitely recommend Katie to anyone planning a stress-free wedding in Bali.

We have just returned from our Honeymoon and so while this message is way overdue, it should not take away from its importance. I want to express our gratitude to you and your staff for an amazing job on that was delivered for our wedding.
As the owner of a wedding planning company myself, I know that clients can be very demanding as it relates to the planning and execution of their special day. I was no exception! But with every, very specific request, you and your team would rise to the occasion and ultimately deliver everything that I wanted, hoped for, dreamed of and MORE!
From the transportation, to the Restaurant choices, to the venues, to the choice of excursions, to the choice of food, music and cultural entertainment, YOU NAILED IT! You clearly understood the client and dreamed along with me! In our business, getting paid for what you do only goes so far. Knowing that you are able to provide your client with their fairy tale wedding is omnipotent! I am so happy that we chose your services out of the many that were available.
I wish you and your team all the best in the future and will definitely look you up whenever we return to Bali. Of course, if your travels ever bring you to St.Maarten, please look us up.
Warm Personal Regards,
Brenda & Franklin
PS. A special hug for Made who took such good care of us while we were there. I still can’t get over the feeling I had when I saw the “offering” he was making in our honor. We were very touched.
Ben & Kate
After deciding to have our wedding in Bali, we really had no idea where to start. A friend of ours suggested Katie from Baliku Weddings. From the first contact we had with Katie, she was professional and very helpful. This is what made us choose Katie & Baliku Weddings to arrange our special day.
Katie is extremely organised and very diligent with all aspects required to make our wedding such a wonderful occasion.
The whole process was very smooth and not at all stressful. Katie arranged everything for us and nothing was too big or too small for her to do.
Our wedding day was absolutely fantastic, the venue was just spectacular, the set up looked amazing, the reception was fantastic and all of our guests had the best time, as did we. It really was out of this world, we feel very lucky to have somebody as wonderful as Katie to put in all the effort that she did. A massive thank you to Katie & to all the people that helped you make our day as perfect as it was.

To Our Favourite Person in the Whole World!!
Katie, you and the amazing Team at Baliku Weddings are honestly the best thing since sliced bread!! I have so many lovely things I want to say and don’t even know where to begin…..You are the most professional, understanding and caring person. Choosing you as our Wedding Planner was by far the best decision we made while planning our Wedding…
I am a complete control freak that suffers with a bit of OCD and you just made me feel so calm and at ease, with the lead up to the Wedding and on the day. Nothing was ever too much trouble for you and you went above and beyond the call of duty.
All the companies you recommended for our day we cannot praise enough, they were all amazing!! The 2 stand outs for us were, Bali Makeup and Hair, the ladies were amazing and they could not have done our hair and makeup any better, it was perfect and Richard Watson the photographer, he was an absolute gentleman and we loved him!!
We honestly had the best day of our lives on our Wedding Day and I have lost count on how many people told us it was the best Wedding they had ever been to. Katie you ran everything so perfectly and you are the reason our Wedding will forever be most important day to us. And for this reason you will always be one of our favourite people in the whole world!!
I have spread the word to all our friends and family and on Facebook telling everyone how amazing you are, and I will keep doing so!! There is not many people out there that can perform miracles but you are definitely one of these people.
I look forward to popping in and saying Hello when we are next in Bali, maybe with a little Baby Brown growing inside me
All or love and so many thanks,
Nikki and Peter Brown xoxoxox

Kate & Marcus
We wanted to express our sincere gratitude for all the work, put in by Katie and her team at Baliku Weddings, in making our wedding so spectacular. It literally was the best day of my life! The whole experience was so enjoyable that I just wish we could do it all over again.
Katie and I simply traded emails, she would ask what I was after and then make it happen over in Bali. She was always professional, friendly, organised and responded promptly. Baliku Weddings planned and executed every element to the tee, far exceeding our expectations. Every aspect (from the venue Phalosa, Ricky & Co Photography, the BCC food, fire dancers, Bali Hair & Make Up, fireworks, flowers etc.) was awesome! We have literally had so many friends say there was ‘not one thing you could fault’. We’re so happy everyone had such an amazing time, such nice feedback.
We had the pleasure of meeting Katie & Lee a number of times and can’t thank them enough for all their care, support, advice and assistance. A wedding is such a personalised thing, especially for me losing my mum only a few months beforehand, and I couldn’t have asked for more lovely ladies to share the journey with. Thanks also to Carol who helped coordinate on the actual day, we really appreciate it.
We can’t recommend Baliku enough – thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Hope to meet again xx

Hey Natalie and the Baliku Crew!! We would love to send out a huge thank you for one of the most perfect days we could have wished for. The planning process, quick communication and friendliness demonstrated your professionalism, knowledge and passion for wedding planning.
The day itself was spectacular! The grounds were beautiful, flowers amazing and the staff couldn’t do more to help. We truly… appreciated all the little extras and special touches we received on the day! Friends and family kept complimenting us on such a perfect and memorable wedding and that is all because of you guys 🙂
Thank you again, Hully & Deb

Wow !!!!We are back and recovering from a fairytale.
The wedding was out of this world. I could not have done it without your help! Everything went like clockwork. The setting was out of a story book. The flowers, chairs, decorations etc were so perfect – we all thought we were dreaming. Dominik made our day so easy and entertaining whilst doing the most spectacular job. He was a pleasure and a delight to have around and share our special moments with us.
Steven was so impressed with your level of service, efficiency and attention to detail. You truly did us proud. Our friends and family cannot stop talking about how special it was.
Your interaction and co-ordination with the hotel was excellent and you seemed to work so well with them. When it came to negotiating with the hotel re the alcohol etc your advice was greatly appreciated.
The ladies for hair and makeup did an exceptional job especially not having met us before. I can go on and on.
“Thank you for a job well done!”

Katie was an incredible help in ensuring our day was more than we could have ever wished for. She thought of all the small details and kept us one step ahead of our deadline all the way through. Her local knowledge is invaluable and even though we were organising from Dubai it was like we were right there in Bali.
On the day she not only made sure everything ran smoothly but she was also a great help with any personal needs we had and went far beyond her job requirements. I cannot imagine organising the amazing wedding we had without the help of Katie and her team. Thank you Katie.
You really did such a wonderful job with everything and we couldnt have been more happy with how the day went.
We will definately be referring you to any of our friends who decide to tie the knot.

We just wanted to thank you for the perfect wedding. Your skill at organising prior to the day was amazing since you hadn’t even met us. We can’t believe how you captured exactly our dreams for a fantastic Bali Wedding.
So many organisers don’t have access or will let you use a personal venue but you worked wonderfully with Ibu Sri from Besakih Beach Hotel in Sanur to give us our real Bali garden wedding…well it rained but you handled that too with your superb managing skills and quiet gentle manner.
We will tell anyone who is planning a Bali Wedding to contact you for that absolutely personal touch.
Our Guests were very impressed and voted it the best wedding they had ever attended !
Thank you for hosting Mr Spongebob to give us such a fantastic surprise 🙂
Thank you Katie and Made for our absolutely perfect day

Here is our testimonial for your fantastic service 🙂
We would like to say a huge thankyou to Natalie and the team at Baliku. From our very first email you made our day so easy and stress free, it was hard to believe we were actually planning a wedding! Nothing was to much to ask, even last minute changes. By the time the big day rolled around we were so relaxed, absolutely everything was in place and all we had to do was get dressed and show up! All our guests (and us!) were blown away by the whole event, it really was a perfect day for us. We would recommend that anyone getting married in Bali should use Baliku, their knowledge and experience will make sure you have a fantastic day.
Thanks again to Baliku, and to Natalie in particular.
with warmest regards

We would like to thank you Katie & your team from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing, friendly and professional service you provided us before, during and after the wedding. We can’t thank you enough for your patience in dealing with my countless emails, especially the decorations that I couldn’t make a decision on (god knows what I’ll do in my spare time now), nothing was ever too much trouble. Your experience and knowledge is second to none.
Thank you again for giving us a truly memorable day that was even better than we could have dreamed of! You provided us with the best of everything, the wedding venue, caterers, decorations and photographers were fantastic! Our friends & families are still raving at how beautiful the day and night was. Baliku Weddings are a truly amazing find and you Katie are a STAR!!! I will be recommending you to anyone wanting to marry in Bali!
All the best and I hope to see you in Bali the next time we visit. xxx

Katie’s attention to detail, her prompt and professional manner exceeded all our expectations for which we are so grateful. When we first started planning our wedding in Bali our initial experiences with another planner were less than impressive, to be honest it was a nightmare, then a friend recommended Katie…. From that point forward everything was a dream come true and we couldn’t be happier! Katie took care of everything and her choice of vendors was outstanding, nothing was ever a problem and I knew we had made the right choice in choosing Baliku Weddings. Anyone looking to get married in Bali, Katie and her Team are undoubtedly the best!!
From the start of the day to the finish everything was perfect, although the morning of the wedding it decided to rain which had us somewhat concerned, Katie’s partner kindly made offerings and went to the temple to pray for sunshine and the rain stopped! Thank you Made, you are gorgeous! Our friends and family will be talking of our wedding for years to come and I can highly recommend Baliku Weddings to anyone looking to get married in Bali, they make your dreams become reality.

Thank you so much. I have already recommended you to everyone.

Thank you for helping to organise such a brilliant, unforgettable and amazing wedding Day.
Throughout all stages of the wedding from selecting venues to choosing table decorations, Baliku were of great assistance – and truly made the difficulties of an international wedding feel non-existent.
The service from Katie and rest of the team at Baliku, was always professional and prompt; and we felt like you really understood and cared about what we were trying to achieve.
This was extended on the wedding day itself, where you and Leigh did an exceptional job of ensuring that the day ran smoothly!
We would have no issue to recommend Baliku as a wedding planner to anyone that is seeking professional assistance for a wedding in a Bali.
Once again, Thank you very much!

I am so sorry for the late email but better late than never.
We would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work during the preparation and organising for our wedding day. The day was the best day of our lives and much of its success was because of you. The night went exactly to plan and everything was perfect. From the setting up, ceremony, food to the party-everything went exactly to plan. We felt so relaxed throughout the night because we knew you had everything under control. Your advice and recommendations about the ceremony, food, photography and events throughout the night was so helpful. We were happy and could not fault anything.
We were so impressed with the staff at the villa and catering company – everyone worked so well together. Our guests were over the moon with all that was provided.
Our wedding night was one that we will never forget thanks to you.
Once again thank you so much.

Dear Lee and the team at Baliku weddings.
Where do we even begin in thanking you for the most wonderful wedding and day of our live’s!
From day one Lee, you have been thoroughly professional and an absolute pleasure to work with.
Over the 8 months of planning my dream Bali wedding my questions were sent to Lee on a daily basis, this did not bother her, I had replies within 2 hours every time, and nothing was out of the question.
Within no time Lee understood my unique style and vision, then suggested and sourced the most beautiful options for us.
Planning a wedding overseas via email was very scary for my family. Baliku weddings went out of their way to look after my whole family and ensure that no matter what happened, I was going to have my dream day.
Everybody that attended the wedding commented on the day being the ‘best wedding’ they have ever attended and I can only agree, it was far more than we could’ve ever imagined, everything was planned to perfection, beautifully presented and the event was so much fun, ran like clockwork and that’s thanks to all of your teams hard work.
To top of the amazing experience our family and friends had in Bali, I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding planner and team behind us.
I loved having you as a part of our day Lee, you’re a lovely soul and a very talented event planner, I’m sure we will keep in touch.
Thank you all on behalf of our family and friends.
What a wonderful, magical start to our marriage.
Much love and heart felt appreciation,
Emma and Jordan Lewis xx

Hi Natalie ,
Planning a wedding with all the logistical consideration can be daunting, especially if it’s a destination wedding! Natalie and Katie from Baliku Weddings were a fantastic help in the lead up to our Bali wedding with lots of email communication. Natalie was brilliant at sourcing and organising all the local providers on our behalf, including the catering company, decorations company, and photographer. Natalie did an excellent job of coordinating our wedding day, even going above and beyond to assist one of our guests who fell ill. We would definitely recommend Baliku Weddings to anyone planning a destination wedding in Bali.
Thanks again for all your help!!

Well…we can honestly say…and have been…that Monday was the best day of our lives!
Every single thing was perfect. The ceremony location and set-up was stunning.
We can’t thank you enough for taking us through the 9 month journey to reach our special day. Sure glad I didn’t attempt it myself (as I had originally planned), as there was so much more work than I imagined.
As you are aware, I am a perfectionist and co-coordinator myself. You have lived up to and exceeded our expectations. You were able to pull out “Trump cards” and get us back on track when things didn’t go to plan ie our ceremony location change and getting us through the last minute hurdle of marriage legalities.
You are worth your weight in gold and deserve every success with your business. We don’t believe we could have found a better wedding planner.
With fond regards
Linda & Mal

Natalie the super star.
If you are thinking a having a wedding in Bali please be rest assured you will have a perfect day if you go through Natalie and Baliku Weddings.
Even though I had not personally met Natalie till a couple of days before the wedding, it was like meeting an old friend.
From the moment I sent the first email till the wedding day, Natalie’s service was brilliant. She organised everything for us….EVERYTHING.
The wedding day at Bali Mandira ran like clockwork. They also know what they are doing. The decorations and the venue were spectacular. The food was absolutely beautiful and there was so much of it, I assure you no one went hungry. The Bali Moon Cocktails were very popular and they just kept coming. The photographer’s photos were just as good as anything you would pay thousands of dollars for in Perth. Then getting a book and CD’s with over 2000 photos on is something unheard of elsewhere for the price.
There was no stress throughout the whole process…..there was just a fantastic wedding at the end of it that ALL of our guests thoroughly enjoyed.

I write to commend you and your team on the excellent manner in which you organised/planned the wedding and followed through on the Wedding day. It went without a hitch and everyone enjoyed the day immensely. I don’t think you and the team could have done any better, it was PERFECT !!!
Thank you very very much for making the day a special one. Nikki and Pete are still on cloud 9 weeks after the magic day you helped create.
I was shocked to find out how low your fee was, you were worth at least double !!!
I am more than happy to recommend without reservation, Baliku Weddings to any prospective Bride and Groom.
We cannot thank you enough for a job well done !!

Dear Lee and the Baliku Wedding Team,
We are so extremely grateful for all your hard work and effort in making our wedding the best day of our lives.
From our first meeting, it was an obvious choice to go with Baliku Weddings. It really helped seeing your HQ, looking through your portfolios and being able to ask all our questions. Not only that, but you always showed genuine interest in our wedding and in our lives. Whilst most of our correspondence was via email, we really appreciate the time you took to meet with us face to face (3 times!). Throughout the whole year of planning, you have been patient and professional- always replying so promptly to our many requests!
You also found our wedding location- which wowed everyone. What a perfect place!
The day itself was a dream, and an absolute joy! We had no worries or concerns as we felt very confident with all your recommendations and tips. The decorations were beautiful, allowing for a fusion between Bali- old and new. The entertainment was fantastic, the food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. The whole day flowed wonderfully and all our guests had such a wonderful time.
Our only wish is that we could go back and do it all over again!
Thanks, Lee, so very much xx

Dear Katie and Lee
Thank you both for your efforts in helping us to bring our fairy-tale to life. Our wedding journey with Baliku started with Katie, but due to the expected arrival of Baby Number 1 for Katie around our wedding date, we transferred to Lee’s care for the rest of our preparation. The girls did this seamlessly with much relief to the bride. Our whole experience was exceptional. Our wedding threw up quite a few challenges, seering heat and humidity, groomsmen fainting during the ceremony just to name a couple. Lee remained calm and composed and kept us all on track, cared for the ill and importantly kept us calm!!!
Baliku was recommended to us by one of our friends and we have no problem in recommending your services to one and all. Don’t be frightened of the distance if planning from overseas, the girls kept regular and prompt contact, ensuring our journey was as smooth as possible
Ben & Stefanie
Damien & Cassie
You and the wider Baliku team made our wedding night in Bali the fun filled night we hoped for. Bali has so many positive elements to make it a brilliant wedding location but as we started researching what goes into hosting a wedding there, we got a quick picture that you need to be very careful what vendors you choose. The Baliku team took all the risk out of this, they always gave me a nice range of local and international options and understood that each couple have different expectations so always guided us in the right direction for each decision. Despite being busy I was always impressed in Lee’s responsiveness as we pinged each other on different topics.
The wedding night was exactly what we hoped – relaxed and fun all the way. The setting was perfect and the decoration company plus caterer were international standard. We had a specific band we wanted and despite Baliku not having a relationship with them, that was no problem.
We would strongly recommend them anytime.
Thanks Lee and Katie.
Damien and Cassie.

Dear Lee and the team at Baliku,
A long overdue note to say a big thank you for your support and help on the best day of our lives. It truly was a day (and week) to remember – both for us, and our guests.
Lee, you were fantastic at always replying to my countless number of emails promptly and addressing all of my questions/concerns in both a personable and professional manner. Thank you very much for your support and patience – I’m not sure how I rank on the bridal OTT scale, but I’m sure I’m up there 🙂 I think we truly appreciated the value of a wedding planner on the actual day itself – when it came to coordinating the various vendors, the guests, the execution of the run sheet (which was changed many times prior to the day!) and just supporting us, the bridal party. It made the experience for us and our guests a wonderful and relatively stress-free one.
There were a number of things we loved about the day that you helped deliver. These included the fire dancers, the delicious food, the decorations (especially my bouquet), the music, the venue, the cake… the list goes on. We often questioned the decision to have a destination wedding, however do not regret it one bit as it was the most magical setting that we will never forget. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to other prospective brides and grooms, although one piece of advice that I would offer is to do lots of research and try to personalise the day as much as possible – pinterest and etsy are the best! Oh and my second piece of advice… what may look like only “barely there” tan lines in real life can become a lot more visible in the professional photos, so either tan very evenly or get a spray tan!!!!
I have attached some of our favourite photos from the day – although to be fair, there’s still another 4,000 photos to look through so bound to be more! I have also included the link to our wedding video if you have nothing to do with a spare 5 minutes and more than happy to share with others 🙂 http://vimeo.com/108757489
Thanks again guys, Claire and Nick
p.s. as a side note, the external vendors we organised (Terralogical, Yeanne Make Up Artist, Venema Pictures, and The Wedding Shop Bali for chalkboards) were all brilliant and I would have no hesitation recommending them to your future clients either!

Dear Katie and team,
Thank you so much for making our wedding day so unforgettable. Every aspect was perfect- the band, the food, the decorations etc. You even managed to keep the rain away despite it threatening. When we decided to get married in Bali we heard horror stories about wedding planners taking weeks to return emails. You always returned our emails within 24 hours. Nothing was too much trouble (well except Andrew’s request to arrive on an elephant). Thanks again.

Thanks again for all your help in arranging our wedding. We had a fabulous time and the wedding was beautiful.
The staff at the Mandira were amazing. One thing I definately have to comment on was the food. Everyone commented on how good the food was and quite a few people said it was the best food they have had since being in Bali. It was amazing and completely exceeded our expectations.
Thanks again Natalie, you guys were amazing!

Thank you so much for all your help in the lead up to and on the day of our wedding. We couldn’t have done it without you! You made the entire process stress free which is a rarity for brides.
Your co-ordination skills are impeccable and attention to detail is outstanding. The setting was picture perfect and everything that was promised was delivered. As an Event Manager myself I had very high expectations and you exceeded all of them, I couldn’t have asked for anything more, other than to do it all over again!
Thank you again, we honestly had the best day of our lives.

We can’t recommend Global Weddings, and Baliku Weddings highly enough!
We secretly eloped in Bali on 7th November, 2015.
Sally was amazing to deal with here in Australia, she was very helpful and informative.
Michelle in Bali was absolutely amazing!!!!
Her help on the day was fabulous, her advice and support was fantastic, from braiding the hair of my bridesmaids, to recording our ceremony, nothing was too much for Michelle!
Thank you girls so much for coordinating and planning the day, it was perfect!!!!
Casey & Ben
We used Baliku Weddings to facilitate our Villa wedding and we couldn’t be happier with that decision.
The venue setup was more beautiful than we ever dreamed. We can only imagine the behind the scenes work done to pull it off.
Throughout the process we had regular contact and were prompted along the way. Any questions were answered quickly and their advice & guidance was a great help.
Having the experience & knowledge of Baliku Weddings took away the stress of having a destination wedding.
We would happily recommend Baliku Weddings to anyone looking to get married in Bali.
Katie, thank you for being part of our special day and more importantly putting it altogether.
We’ll never have to throw another party because we had the best party ever & nothing could top that!

Katie and Baliku Weddings ensured that we and our guests had a wonderful day, better then we could have hoped for. All arrangements were made prior with Katie providing flexibility and great recommendations for all of our requests. The quality and level of service provided by the suppliers recommended by Katie were second to none and I had many people compliment me on the wedding and say they would definitely recommend a Bali wedding in the future. Katie was able to deliver beyond our expectations and manage the issues that arose during the day deftly and without causing stress to any of the wedding party.
My new husband and I couldn’t thank Katie more for everything she did for us, from the countless emails she responded to in a timely manner to the advice she provided for our big day to the smooth professional manner in which she facilitated the evening. I would, and have, recommended her to anyone I know and would do it again exactly the same.

Thankyou so much for everything you have done for us, you made our day so easy!!
I really can not imagine the stress I would of been under trying to organise it all myself.
The hardest thing I had to do was work out what music I wanted and really that wasnt that hard!!
Our day was PERFECT exactly how we wanted it, a small intimate ceremony with a special dinner to follow and thats exactly what we got!!!
The decorations were beautiful and the food was just amazing.
The ladies that did my hair and make up made me feel like a total princess.
The photography team did an awesome job, Ive had so many comments about the photo’s and how amazing they look.
I will definately recommend Baliku weddings to any of my friends that are planning on getting married in Bali.
We would not of had such a perfect day if we didnt have you planning it for us.
Thankyou again Natalie.

Lee, Katie and the rest of the Baliku team,
Will and I would like to personally thank you for the amazing job you did for our wedding. From the very first email correspondence from Katie, I knew I need to look no further. You both are professional and excellent with communications, there was generally no email left unanswered for more than a day.
You were our go-to persons for everything related to this Bali trip, and on our wedding day, your team stayed till the very end to make sure everything goes well. Your attention to detail and patience is what really sets you apart and for that we are ever so grateful!
Destination weddings are hard and we honestly don’t think we would have done it without you guys, I would recommend you to anyone planning a wedding in Bali and wish your business all the very best!

the whole planning experience so relaxed and easy, we were able to concentrate on having a day filled with love and laughter.
I cannot Thank You enough for all the hard work and small unique bits and pieces you did to ensure our wedding day was perfect.

We just wanted to share with you our thoughts of how amazing you were in creating our spectacular wedding day in magical Bali.
You have clearly already earnt the respect of your competitors in the wedding business in Bali, as you had initially been recommended to us by another reputable wedding planner who was unable to coordinate our wedding herself.
So from there we have been nothing short of thrilled with your remarkable dedication to the job, your thorough and thoughtful planning and seemless execution… We are so thankful that we found ourselves in the capable hands of you and your team… It was a blessing!
Our day was absolutely wonderful! From the outset, you were incredibly professional and extremely efficient… with every element covered and carefully planned. You constantly kept us up to date and the time and effort you committed to our wedding blew our minds, we have been so impressed. Anyone starting to plan a wedding in Bali should enlist your help, your fees are completely reasonable and worth every cent… you made the whole process as stress free as possible and guided us so well on how to achieve the wedding we dreamed within budget… you were absolutely fantastic, very understanding and honest.
In the very last stages of planning we were faced with some venue problems that were beyond your control, the change had us quite disappointed that our dream venue was no longer an option. However, you managed to pull off such a spectacular day at an equally beautiful venue that every moment of our day was picture perfect… and such a blast! Our memories of the day will be cherished forever.
The photos are outstanding… the food was sensational… the flowers… the cake…the hair and makeup… it was all gorgeous… you sourced the very best of everything… the job you do is just superb. Well done… and thank you!
Thanks again for every little thing…

I am a big fan of constructive criticism but unfortunately we’ve got nothing for you! You and your team were professional, incredibly helpful and the day was just amazing. I feel like all our ‘thank you’s will never be enough; you, the girls and Made were amazing and made the day so much fun for us. Since we’ve been home we’ve heard again and again how beautiful the day was and how much our guests enjoyed themselves, this is so great to hear since it was our major focus.
We approached Baliku weddings after we’d selected our venues to assist us in putting together a beautiful day. I loved the idea of working with an Australian who lived locally and could assist in overcoming the language and cultural barriers. Baliku also represented great value for money when compared with other event companies in the area. The other important factor when selecting Baliku was their preferred vendors; all of the highly recommended companies I’d researched were their first choice!
We have been blown away with their professionalism and service. At each step during the process the communication was clear and all emails were responded to promptly. Katie had some great suggestions and made planning the little details so easy for us.
The day went perfectly, the team were across all venues and kept track of our guests and vendors as well as keeping the bridal party happy. Our guests were amazed at the day that we were able to provide them and Baliku were a huge part of that. Thanks so much Katie, Nat, Nat and Made, we highly recommend you for any couple getting married in Bali.

Dear Katie, Lee and Made,
Well no words can express how wonderful our wedding day was , and mostly because of you and your teams amazing coordination and advice.
We had a vision of how we wanted our day to be and what we received exceeded all of our expectations.
Our guests were blown away by the amazing chapel , the villa setting , music, and most of all the beautiful food and drinks provided, all of which came highly recommended from yourselves.
The photo book and photos are out of this world, John hates having his photo taken and I’m overly critical of photos of myself but Ricky and Co captured the love we have for each other so well and happy tears were shed on every page.
Coming from a self confessed control freak, I was able to relax and enjoy the day without any worry or stress( even when I was running late, your thoughtful showing me a picture of the chapel, put my mind at ease and allowed me to just relax and enjoy thank you )
Your professionalism in dealing with hiccups and your ability to fix them without us even knowing what went wrong, shows how great you are at what you do. You went above and beyond what we were expecting and in dealing with the village hiccup at the end of a huge day for you all we thank you for that. Especially Made who looked physically worried and upset about it, please pass on that although we were disappointed the music was cut short, we continued to have our party and still thoroughly enjoyed the night., but appreciated his and your conversing with the village people to try and resolve the situation.
We can’t say thank you enough guys, it was awesome!!!
If we here of anyone wanting to get married in Bali , we will definitely send them your way…….
And next time we are in Bali we will call in with a few Bintang s or cocktails !!
