Photographer, Hair stylist, Makeup artist on Nusa Lembongan?

I'm getting married on Nusa Lembongan in March and am looking for the following services on the island to avoid having to pay for boat fares and accommodation for providers from the mainland - any suggestions/recommendations please? :)

Maybe post this on the Bali forum.

Really Nusa Lembongan should be part of the Bali forum.

It is incorrectly listed in the Lombok-West Nusa Tenggara forums and has been for a long while.

I have explained the geography, the regional and provincial boundaries and the cultural and services linkage to Bali rather than Lombok but they do not seem to ever do anything about it.

I am not so sure it gets read much so see how you go on the Bali forum.

Sorry, I cannot help you but I am very confident you will locate someone.

I also reported the original post as 'wrong forum' which is not quite correct, but an attempt to get TA admin to recognise the issue that Lembongan is NOT part of West Nusa Tenggara. I really wish they would move the forum under the Bali sub-forums.

Good idea Sudiah.

I hope it catches someones attention...other than just our own.

I have contacted them about this myself, maybe 2-3 times with a detailed explanation of the geography/provincial borders and cultural/services ties and I recall I was advised the TA people who look after such things had been advised.

Nothing happened...

Brookie, Bali has a film industry, and a vibrant wedding industry.

A film specialist make-up/hair person may have some cross-overs with the wedding business, or their assistant may do wedding work.

Try this website, you will find an email and contact numbers there... moviestudiobali.com/en/moviestudiobali_about…

Also one of the regular contributors on this forum runs a wedding planing business, they are bound to have suitable contacts... maybe send them a PM

thanks guys, i hope they fix the problem soon too - meantime i have not had any luck sourcing a photographer living on the island so have just had to book one from the mainland. I'm sure I'll find one when I get there though!!

Contact the girl who runs this website http://www.corneliaskitchen.com/

Her boyfriend is an expat photographer.

Not sure if he is any good at weddings, maybe ask here and she might give some recommendations.

I am sure they will know someone in Bali who can assist you if you are not all sorted out already.

I think Brookie B is hoping to find these experts residing on Lembongan so that she can avoid the cost of transporting them to the island for her wedding.

I think it's a fairly small place, I'm guessing a wedding planner in Bali would know if there are services like this already available on Lembongan, it is hard to know. Hopefully a repost on the Bali forum will find someone with local knowledge of Nusa Lembongan.

I agree Sudiah, I also doubt Brookie is going to find the people she needs on Lembongan and will need to seek them out in Bali.

Hi Brookie,

I'm not sure you'd be able to find any of these services on Lembongan itself..and if you did, I'm not sure it'd be of the caliber you would be searching for, as Lembongan has only a small population with most locals working in toursim, seaweed farming etc.

I would definately be sourcing these from Bali if I were you!

Best of luck with your wedding at the most beautiful place on earth :-)

Hi Brookie,

I got married on Nusa Lembongan in 2007 & we had our photographer & hair / makeup girl come from the mainland. From memory it didn't cost much at all to bring them over (they used the local shuttle service, not the big tourist boats) & they were finished & able to leave the island on the last boat for the day insted of having to stay the night.

Our photographer was Richard Watson, he's Brittish & lives in Bali with his wife & daughter. He is such a lovely man, we caught up with him again in October last year & got him to do a family portrait shoot for us with our two daughters!! Here is a link to his website:

I can't remember the name of my hair / makeup girl, but she was pretty famous in Bali & did alot of the hair ans makeup for indonesian TV shows! We organised her through Bali Weddings International, they were such a great help with getting all of the paperwork etc organised! Here is a link to their website:

I hope I've been some help, good luck for your wedding!!!
