Summer is in full swing and we thought it the perfect time to share this bright Bali elopement. Full of tropical vibes and plenty of boho styling with pops of neon, we were instantly obsessed! This elopement happened in Italy, despite originally intending to take place in Bali. But who says the Bali atmosphere can't be recreated in a beautiful 15th-century Italian convent? This elopement certainly proves it can!

Our vision was a colourful and original elopement, a celebration of free, young and bold love.

Bali Elopement Inspiration

A destination elopement originally intended to happen on the Island of Gods, Bali, happened instead as an intimate elopement in Italy. Together with the wedding planner, Lalla Crippa, they teleported Bali to Italy, in the elegant and full of history Convento dell'Annunciata in the Lombardy region, Italy. Victoria and James' personality definitely shines through their looks and the bold choices they made for their wedding. With rich decor, characterised by wicker furniture and original Balinese features, such as parasols. The use of both fresh and dry flowers creates the perfect tropical atmosphere. The dinner table is lit up with wicker lamps and colourful neon lianas hanging from the trees. It's simply to die for!

Fashion & Accessories

The bride's gown and boho fringed veil look beautiful on Victoria! The outfit allows her to show off her tattoos that represent her uniqueness that she is so proud of. Her pink make-up and hair by Lina Pagano add to this. Victoria's statement wedding jewellery including her crown and earrings certainly makes her look bold and daring and complements the tropical vibes of the Bali elopement. James is her perfect match with the bold choice of wanting to break with tradition and embracing the unique surroundings they chose for their wedding. The suit is in Kasuri, a traditional Japanese fabric.

Nothing says tropical like some neon decor!

With this tropical and original wedding, we wanted to show our editorial style and our passion for fashion and unconventional looks. Even Victoria and James' wedding video trailer is a contemporary expression of the couple's love, with an audacious rhythm and daring editing.
