Head over heels in love, Erin Thompson and Lucas Day didn’t want their beautiful Bali wedding day to end.
So before heading back to their bridal suite at Seminyak’s Bali Mandira Resort, the Melbourne couple, aged 31 and 30 respectively, stretched out the celebrations with one last dip in the pool. “I did not want the night to end so we invited the bridal party back to the private pool villa for a trash-the-dress,” smiles Erin.
The celebrations had already gone late into the night, with 70 loved ones in holiday-mode, laughing, dancing and joining together for a special lantern release to mark the end of the nuptials.
Erin, a makeup artist and Lucas, a concreter, had first spotted each other at their local pub but needed a ‘wingman’ – aka Facebook – to brave the introductions. “We are so completely head over heels in love and have been since we first laid eyes on each other,” smiles Erin.
They jetted to Bali for their destination wedding, held on May 13, 2015. “Our ceremony took place at sunset on a balcony that overlooked the pristine beach,” recalls Erin. “After exchanging our vows, we made our way downstairs to the reception held in the garden by the pool, which was beautifully decorated with hanging lanterns and fresh flowers.”
“People are still talking about our wedding,” says Erin. “We are planning to all return for our one-year anniversary.”
