bits of bali: the mulia

Bali has always been at the top of my list of places to visit. Aside from beach chilling and nonstop eating and drinking, a trip to Bali to me would mean a lot of exploring of the little shops and really taking in all the beautiful interiors of the smallest restaurants and coffee shops, or buying the most random things from stands. It just so happened that one of my most recent work trips brought me there, though to an area far away from Seminyak (the main area of Bali where all the happenings are). It was more secluded and private, something I also truly liked because it felt extra peaceful, and I was able to get away from the busyness of everything even just for a bit.

Bride and Breakfast visited The Mulia, Bali a few weeks back. For those wondering why we went, we got invited by The Mulia to experience the resort. We were there for three days, which was definitely not enough to take in the whole place. Our time was spent wandering around, taking photos, and eating (nonstop!). You can read about our Bride and Breakfast experience here, but I’d like to share a few tidbits and photos of the trip that I personally found interest in.

#editoriallog: dreamy botanical luxe

Another haggard BTS coming your way, as manifested in my weirdly shaped, one-side-swept hair and tired eyes. After this shoot I was left with off-white, muddy Supergas and a cold. The weather this day was unforgiving, with intervals of sunshine and pouring rain, but this beautiful feature on Tricia Gosingtian and RG Gabunada still shined after the storm.

Jacqs Florals did an amazing job with the flowers. I absolutely loved the floral chandelier and the floral wall, which, by the way, is made of artificial flowers. The details, like the invite and napkin holders by Valerie Chua were also standout details in this feature. Even the dresses of Hannah Kong and suits from Signet were on fleek! The perfect combination for a fashionable couple like Tricia and RG.

#editoriallog: stargazer

Sharing with you my bare-faced, tired look, saved by a little photo magic by Ryan of Blufish Photography. Despite the haggard look, this was one of the lightest, fun shoots we did because I got to work with a quirky bunch that made us laugh almost the whole day.

Michael Ruiz’s wall of lights was genius to bring out that starry night inspiration we wanted for this wedding theme. I also really loved the gold candles and gold Tiffany chairs. Think you can sport a bride look as bold as this? See more of our Starry Constellations Wedding here.

#editoriallog: beach balinese beauty

While I’m waiting to get my photo from day 3 of our 3-day editorial shoot, let me share with you the shoot we worked on last June in Eskaya Beach Resort and Spa. I wrote about our wonderful experience here, which explains why this might be my most favorite one yet. The place was amazing, the theme beautiful and elegant, the suppliers so talented (and fun!), the weather cooperative, and the 3-day experience in the resort so relaxing despite having to do work. The highlight of my trip? The amazing massage after our long shoot day! Can’t wait to go back!

#editoriallog: fleek and fetch

Right after our Solaire shoot, we went straight to Hillcreek Gardens, Tagaytay. It was editorial number 2 of our 3-day editorial shoot. Those are 3 different shoots, with 3 different set of teams. I was so overwhelmed with the amazing people I got to work with for all. It was extremely tiring and the weather was bipolar, but being in beautiful venues with amazing wedding setups and suppliers just makes you forget about that.

This theme is more of the hipster, geometric type. It’s more playful than the usual themes we would do which I liked, with the unconventional suits and dark, sleek looks for our bride. I also super loved the gold geometric details and air plants!

ps. The second photo was just a stolen shot, also by Bryan.

#uncomplicate2016

Last week I was given the opportunity to learn from some of the best wedding photographers in the metro. Toto Villaruel and Marlon Capuyan put together Uncomplicate, a wedding workshop for budding wedding photographers who want to improve their craft and build a business. This is the third Uncomplicate wedding workshop they’ve put together, and we were about 20+ participants. I felt like the ultimate baby amongst the extra talented individuals.
