Jatiluwih Rice Terraces

Located in the Tabanan province, the Jatiluwih Rice Terraces are one of the most beautiful tourist attractions. It’s an absolutely gorgeous location at sunset or sunrise, as the light is a great contrast to the greenery of the rice fields. Dry season is a great time to plan your elopement here. While it is popular, you’ll be able to find a secluded spot for your intimate elopement because it’s such a large attraction! When you’re all done with your ceremony and portraits, don’t forget to grab a bite to eat at one of the nearby restaurants, too!

Adventurous Elopements in Bali

Mount Batur is an active volcano on the north west part of Bali, known for its collapsed top. The volcano is also known for its black volcanic rocks and sand, creating a dramatic vibe for your portraits!. It’s an absolutely gorgeous spot for an elegant and unique look for your elopement.

Honestly, it’s not often you can get to an active volcano to the extent that you can get to Mount Batur. One of the other best parts about Mount Batur is the great hiking available - and the gorgeous lake, too! If you’re dreaming of a stunning sunrise elopement, consider planning your ceremony at Mount Batur!

NungNung Waterfall

NungNung Waterfall is located about an hour outside of Ubud and has to be one of the most beautiful spots in all of Bali to plan your elopement! The best time to visit is in the early morning, though you can access the waterfall basically all day before it’s dark.

Because getting to the waterfall is a bit more challenging than a simple walk, it’s not the spot for everyone. But if it’s for you, the NungNung Waterfall will not disappoint! It’s secluded and absolutely stunning.

If you want a waterfall and more of a forest vibe for your elopement, consider Tibumana Waterfall. It’s located in Ubud and the path to the waterfall is surrounded by beautiful rice fields and palm trees. It’s the perfect chance to find a secluded spot in Bali while still enjoying what everyday life is like in Bali. Tibumana Waterfall is also near a beautiful Bali temple - so check that out while you’re there!

Kelingking Beach

Kelingking Beach is possibly one of the most incredible spots you’ll see in Bali - plus, who doesn’t love the idea of eloping on the beach? Getting down to the beach itself can be a bit scary - with limited safety railings and stairs, so consider eloping at one of the overlooks with Bali’s blue water and greenery behind you. It’s a stunning view either way and a dreamy spot for your ceremony!

Cheers, I'm


I am most passionate about travel, meeting new people, and storytelling. Which is exactly why I created Thin Spaces Productions to combine all of my loves into one mission. After graduating college, I moved to South East Asia to be a travel photographer. It wasn’t long until I started shooting elopements.

South East Asia has completely captured my heart, which is why I love helping couples plan their elopement in Bali. I have found that Bali is one of the most beautiful places on earth which also unlocks your inner child. It has become a little piece of my heart that I cannot wait to share with you.
