Bali continues to be the host for making most people’s dreams come true. In Bali, there are many open doors for people to walk through, and the barrierless ways have lead to a multicultural and multinational island with input and interest from nations worldwide. The majority religion is the peaceful Balinese strand of Hinduism, and the laws of the land allow for various other religions to co-inhabit the same space and also to build religious places of worship. Bali itself has over a dozen beautiful chapels.
A little bit of basic historic knowledge will tell you that the oldest chapel could not be any older than when the first Dutch settlers arrived some one hundred years ago, although the chapels seen today are all extremely modern and newly build, featuring contemporary designs. Most of the chapels look quite different from what you would find in Europe and the West. In Bali, the chapels are usually made out of glass – some are entirely made of glass and the sky can be seen from the pulpit. Fully air conditioned, this modern wonders are the place where the Bali Catholic Weddingwould take place.
The Bali Catholic Weddingis a genuine Catholic religious wedding and will be conducted by a Catholic Romo Priest. Due to the excessive paper work associated with Catholic weddings, it is advise that the couple intending to get married start planning well in advance. Remember that divorced persons are not allowed to marry again under Catholic rules, and a certificate of no impedimence will be needed from your consul. The only way a divorced Catholic person can marry again is if they can prove that their ex husband or wife were not themselves Catholics. Arrangements can be made for the Catholic Priest to come to your villa or hotel to perform the marriage, and to make the occasion official under Indonesian law, so that your wedding certificate also be valid and recognized internationally, a civil registrar can be called and will be present at the additional cost of around one hundred US dollars.

A pre-wedding meeting with professional Indonesian staff will be included in the Bali Catholic Weddingpackage to sort out the logistics of the wedding, and a professional photographer will also capture the day’s best moments and provide you with a photo album and CD Rom.
