The Library @ Alila Uluwatu

As a wedding planner, there’s alot of things that you need to co-ordinate with and the key important people that the planner need to meet got to be the representative from the hotel as well as the venue set-up vendors, including the florist etc.

So a meeting was arranged at 11:00am at The Library in Alila Uluwatu, where it’s good for holding small discussion, or to do some leisure reading or work. There’s also MAC station available in there too for your usage.

Time to meet up with the brothers, sisters as well as the parents and wedding couples for a proper rehearsal before their big day. Jon is really someone which take very good care of everything. He make sure everyone know what to do and what’s their role. He even have to do LIVE demonstration on how to walk your way down the aisle, where to place your hand at etc. Most importantly, he managed to make the rehearsal into some fun and not so serious as you can hear lots of laughter throughout hahaha~

The rehearsal didn’t take very long. After we are done, the rest of them continue with their activities while Jon continue with his work. We met Nefi and Ari again to discuss on the set-up for the wedding dinner, which will be held in the 3 bed-room villa itself. Yes! at Alila Uluwatu, you can bring your wedding dinner or events into the villa itself, giving it more exclusivity and privacy 😉

with the perfect Audio, Visual, & Lightings from Virturso Productions and great mix of music from DJ Rob from Wedding DJ In Bali, the couple had a romantic dance under the moonlight and it ended off with FIREWORKS!!!! All thanks to Alila Uluwatu 😉

After spending 4 days with Jonathon, following him around with the wedding preparation, I really have to say that i’m impressed with what he can come up with. There’s simply so much things to take care of, from the setting-up, the choice of music, the rundown, the types of flowers and colors to use and many many more minor details which may not seem to be important but can give you a totally WOW effect when you are there.

So are you planning for a destination wedding as well? Probably its time for you to drop them an email today to enquire! 🙂
