// Island Beach Wedding at Sandy Bay Nusa Lembongan //
Photographers: Andre & Christine
Just a week before their wedding day in Nusa Lembongan Bali, Corbin and Nicola were trapped in Mount Rinjani Lombok Indonesia along with hundreds of trekkers after a powerful 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the tourist island. I didn’t know they were in Lombok until I saw their names came up on 9News Australia. I lost contact with them & was extremely worried about them as the whole Lombok was in chaos that time. But thankfully a few days before their D day they contacted me and told me they were safe.
2 days before their wedding, another earthquake happened in Bali & a tsunami warning was issued by the local government. Corbin and Nicola were already in Lembongan but we were still in Bali. We almost couldn’t make it because of the big rising tide of the sea. Luckily the weather calmed down the next day, so we successfully sailed to Lembongan to shoot their wedding. Amazingly their wedding day was blessed with a very beautiful sunny weather! A major contrast from the weather on previous days. As if nothing happened, the wedding was going very smoothly. All those terrifying incidents they experienced before were soon forgotten as everyone was enjoying and really had fun in the party! It was a proof that even the universe was on their side! This made it the most memorable wedding we documented this year.
