LOVE // J&M xxx

White and gold never looked as elegant as it did for Jessica and Michael at Luminare. Despite Melbourne weather turning the ceremony location on its head just prior to guest arrival the wet weather plan didn’t take away from what was a stunning evening for these two beautiful souls. Transforming the venue were masses of green foliage, clouds of white hydrangea and divine peony roses, over 350 candles and mirrored gold signage. 

I truly loved working with the beautiful Jess and Michael all the way from London to create what was a magical evening for their marriage celebration.

HONEYMOON // Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa

A magical five days were spent at Bunga Raya Island Resort & Spa on the stunning Gaya Island. A beautiful natural treasure Gaya Island is a lush, tropical rainforest and the resort is simply breathtaking. A perfect honeymoon destination or couples retreat just a short fifteen minute boat ride from Kota Kinabalu in Sabah, Borneo.

The stunning jetty and overwater pavilions set the tone for this island experience and with only 48 rooms this boutique resort has an exclusive intimacy. The row of plunge pool villas have direct access  to the beach and waking up each morning to waves gently lapping almost at your doorstep is a very special experience. Alternatively the tree top villas are a nature lovers experience set high amongst the rainforest trees.

Exceptional (and romantic!) dining experiences are abundant with private dinners hosted in the owners private wine cellar, on the jetty or in any of the beautiful beach pavilions.

The images below from our stay speak for the themselves but the one thing they don't show is the beautiful heart this island has from the warmth and amazing service of the Bunga Raya team. 

An amazing five days we won't forget xxx
