Merti + Sanjaya Engagement Photo Session in Nusa Penida

Last week Sanjaya and Merti had a Balinese traditional wedding in Nusa Penida, the hometown of the groom. Early February they did a casual engagement/pre-wedding photo session in Nusa Penida island and another session with Balinese traditional outfit at Museum Bali, Denpasar. 

It was merely because of Sanjaya's the groom's homeland was in Nusa Penida, that they decided to do the pre-wedding photo session there. Besides, Nusa Penida now had become the favorite destination for both local and foreign tourists. It offered many beautiful places with unique landscapes and beautiful beaches that are different from the beaches in Bali.   

So, there we made our adventure from the far east Atuh Beach, Diamond Beach, Treehouse Melenting, Kelingking Beach, Angel Billabong, Broken Beach, Teletubbies Hill Tanglad to the most favorite location for tourists to watch sunset, Crystal Bay. 

We explored Nusa Penida for two days from sunrise to sunset. We started our adventure as early as dawn, still with sleepy head we went off and returned as the night fell and feeling so exhausted, but let me tell ya, it was all worth it! Go, have a look at their photos here, enjoy.

A Traditional Balinese Wedding | Merti + Sanjaya

Sanjaya and Merti had the traditional Balinese wedding in Nusa Penida Island, the homeland of the groom. Five days prior, the groom's family came to the bride's home in Antiga - Karangasem to propose Sanjaya's soulmate. This proposal moment was also for the engagement.
For two days my team and I covered Sanjaya and Merti' s traditional Balinese wedding ceremony in Nusa Penida. Day one, they had the traditional ceremony ritual which was called Mejaya-jaya or some people called it Mawidi-widana, led by a Peranda (Bali Hindu Priest). This ritual took almost all day with all the Balinese ornaments like janur (young coconut leaf decoration), penjor (curved bamboo decoration) and banten (offerings) that were seen in every corner of the house.  These little things make the house looked so merry!  
The day after, they held the reception. The bride and groom wore the authentic Balinese traditional outfit, they looked graceful and glow with such charisma.  A new beginning had b…
