in the midst of the Bali Volcano erupting our flight to Bali has been cancelled and we are going to miss our wedding in Seminyak on Monday the 4th of December.

My partner James and I have been planning this wedding for 8 months and as a young couple renting in Melbourne threw all our small income into making it happen. We have had a hard blow with James' Mother passing away just two months prior to the wedding but we decided to go ahead and continue with the blessing of the family around us. This is why we did not get insurance right away, as finding a insurance provider to cover someone who is extremely sick is hard. So please dont judge us as niave or going from a cash grab. We were actually trying to have someone expirence the beautiful island before they died. Hopefully thats something that no one has to go through.

We are beyond devastated that we have now lost our wedding, our accomodation and our honeymoon but we want to try and make this situation as great as we can. We both live here in Melbourne and want to try to hold our wedding on the Monday (4/12/2017)here.

We have minimal money left and we are hoping there might be some generous businesses or people in the greater public that could band together to help us out. 

The funds would go towards a Venue, Celebrant,Photographer and Florist. If we managed to be able to serve the guests some Food and Drink that would be great also.

Hi Everyone,

Thank you all for the generous donations, advice and offers of services. In just the short time we had this up we have managed to secure a wedding venue, cake, photographer and a florist. We feel so lucky that we have the support of our friends, family and community around us. We are closing our donations as the $1865.00 raised will be contributed to those who have helped us. Thank you.

Hello Everyone, Thank you so much for all the generosity and advice left in comments we are totally overwhelmed.

Unfortunately we have disabled comments and some people were leaving nasty comments relating to passed on family members and that we are trying to scam. I guess that comes with having a go fund me but is very unpleasant to read.

Thank you again to everyone who is helping out!

Thank you for all the extremely generous donations and offers.

To address our traveling insurance coments. We did get traveling surance they wont cover us as it was purchased too late. This was because we were trying our hardest to find and pay for a policy to cover James' very sick mother so she could join us on her first overseas trip.
Unfortunately she died and our insurance was purchased right after.

So please don't assume we are asking for money for a series of bad decisions we made. We are simply are asking for help after a year of unfortunate events and now even tougher times.
