Courtenay Jade Salter and Ashlon Rhys Chue first met in pre-school, became best friends, and subsequently fell in love in 2013. They tied the knot at the beautiful Alila Villas Soori in Bali, Indonesia with a gorgeous seaside ceremony and dinner in a foliage-decorated marquee. Wood, copper, soft grey marble and natural textures were incorporated into their theme.
