Luxury Weddings Indonesia are highly recommended by luxury venues and vendors throughout the region for their reliability and professional approach. The Bali wedding planner experts have a focussed team led by Ria Kentjono, director and lead wedding planner of the company. Ria has spent her whole adult life in 5-star hospitality, working in some of the finest hotels in Jakarta, Bali and Singapore, before starting Luxury Weddings Indonesia in partnership with her English husband, Adrian.
Ria was Director of weddings at Indonesia's largest wedding hotel, the Ayana Resort and Spa between March 2012 and April 2015. The resort has 15 wedding venues spread over the 90-hectare property. Between 300 and 500 weddings take place there every year, and Ria was involved in the wedding planning, preparation and oversight of every single one.
Through her stint at the Ayana Resort and Spa and the realisation that most local, national and international wedding planners organising weddings had little knowledge or experience of handling luxury hotel weddings, Ria went on to set up The Wedding Academy, the first school for wedding professionals in Indonesia. The school offered an internationally-recognised certificate, from Weddings Beautiful Worldwide, to students who successfully completed the course.
Around the same time that Ria created The Wedding Academy, she also set up Luxury Weddings Indonesia in partnership with her husband, Adrian. The company is based in Bali but caters to all of Indonesia. As the premier Bali wedding planner organisation they arrange weddings and events for as few as 40 guests all the way up to much larger weddings with as many as 600 guests. They specialise in events at luxury venues, whether its a boutique villa or a 5 star hotel.
Luxury Weddings Indonesia are unique in the region as each member of their team has a solid background in 5-star hospitality. This means they all have full working knowledge of how high quality hotels function and operate, from making the necessary reservations to the operational details involved with food and beverages. Luxury resorts and luxury venues know the company for their reliable and professional approach and for always employing an experienced and focussed team of professional wedding experts.
We are not a wedding factory so we don't churn out hundreds of weddings a year, we average 25 to 30 weddings annually, no more. We can't provide the highest level of client service if we are juggling too many weddings at the same time, especially more than one a weekend as it would divide our key team members. Quality over quantity.
So here's some unedited Google reviews from real clients. If you want to read more reviews then go to our Client Review page, if you want to see more videos then checkout our Videogaphy portfolio page and you can see our favourite photos from a lot of our wedding on our Photography page.
Not all clients leave reviews, some enjoy their privacy and some are very busy people but occasionally we get lucky and it's lovely when we do!
Planning a wedding is inevitably full of surprises. For us, the big surprise was the unfolding of the global COVID19 pandemic. Having one of the last weddings in Bali before everything shut down for quarantine, we had vendors cancel last minute, an ever-shifting guest list, and many questions about what we should and could do. The value of choosing Luxury Weddings Indonesia became clear when Ria was able to get replacements for our dropped-out vendors just TWO days before our wedding. Even if your wedding is not affected by a global pandemic (which I hope it isn't), the value of a good wedding planner will certainly become evident on the day of your wedding when everything you've spent months planning blossoms into the grand drama that is a wedding. Luxury Weddings Indonesia nailed this. A special shoutout to the personal assistants assigned to my wife and I, both whom were an absolute blast and amazing help -- I honestly thought a wedding day personal assistant would be over kill, but it was absolutely crucial to my sanity and ability to manage the day. This is a great example of the extra steps Ria and her team will take to prepare you for your big day.
THE BEST WEDDING PLANNER ANYONE COULD EVER ASK FOR! Wedding planning can be a stressful process for most couples but Luxury Weddings Indonesia made it incredibly smooth and easy for us. Luxury Weddings Indonesia really goes above and beyond to ensure that you have the wedding of your dreams. Ari and Ria did an incredible job planning our wedding, from the process of vendor searching, planning to the management of the day itself they were incredibly professional, attentive and always on the go when you needed something. With them no concern is too small, they will help you iron our every detail until it’s perfect. Second to marrying the man of my dreams, Luxury Weddings is the best choice any bride could ever make! I would highly recommend Luxury Weddings Indonesia to any couple out there! THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING DAY BETTER THAN WE HAD EVER DREAMED OF.
