{matt & angie} ~ wedding ~ bali

June 13, 2009

When Matt and Angie met at the Glastonbury Festival it was love at first sight. Only one problem; Matt had just moved from the UK to sunny Australia. Six months later Angie followed her heart and joined Matt down under. When they decided to get married they found themselves in a bit of a pickle. They needed a spot somewhere in between the UK and Australia, so that family and friends, both old and new, would be able to join them on their big day.

The answer was Bali.

On the day the 38 guests joined Matt & Angie at Villa Pemutih in Bingin. Overlooking the Indian Ocean – and with monkeys in the trees – we all experienced a very special day. Angie wore a vintage 1950’s dress she found in London, the girls got their stunning purple dresses made after they arrived in Bali and the boys looked equally dapper in grey and blue. Everything had a local touch, even the welcome drinks tasted of Bali with ginger and lemongrass keeping people cool in the tropic sun.

Both Matt and Angie are in to yoga, Angie even teaches classes in Sydney. The ceremony even started with all the guest doing a two minute “om” together with their eyes closed. It was also the first time I’ve seen a groom standing on his head in the bathroom while the guests were arriving outside and it still made perfect sense.

In fact, most things made perfect sense, during the speeches groomsmen and bridesmaids shared photos and clips from both their lives on a huge screen. It was truly fantastic.

Come to think of it, everything was perfect.

I want to get married when I see your pictures! Lovely is just a understatement!

I’ve followed your (text) blog for a couple of years now.
and kept an especially sharp eye out for your photography work,
so now I have to say. you’ve really made sure that the way you tell stories translates into film. you should be proud of that, because you’re exceptional at both. if I ever get married I hope you’ll still be around for this kind of work.

Apparently the pictures, too, are perfect! Absoutely perfect. Gosh.

Jonas you’re getting better and better in every way. Matt and Angie looked truly beautiful!

OMG – these photos makes you want to get married all over again! AND of course, go out and practise my photography. Wonderful inspiration!

You have an amazing ‘bildöga’ – keep up the good work, you are very talented!

Whoa! Love Angie’s eyes and the contrast between them and her hair, pic “42”. Love the centrepieces in “58”. LOVE “84”, amazingly cute. Love the atmosphere in “90” and “105”. – All of it, as usual, brilliantly captured by you, Jonas! (You’re kind of spoiling us here!)

Wow! Absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous couple and amazing photos, I’m sure the bride and groom are going to love these shots.

You are indeed amazing. These pictures are absolutely breathtaking.

Wow, incredible!! The one that really stands out to me (other than the shots that show the amazing location!!) is the one of the bride and groom sitting, holding hands, with their backs showing. Absolutely love the feel to that photo!

yay! i was waiting for these! worth the wait, dude :) thanks so much for the endless inspiration!

Jonas – once again you’ve got a great eye/view of the world mate. Keep the shots coming mate.

Love the one where the couple is sitting with their backs towards the camera. BEAUTIFUL!

Jonas, gorgeous pics as always. Love the purple dresses and ceremony shots. They will love these!

Wow. Amazing work Jonas, everything about it was captured perfectly…I can’t imagine how happy this couple will be to see these! Loved the yoga shots!
