One of those highly sought after locations is St Mikael Christian Protestant Church. Located just a short drive away from the resort enclave, surrounded by lush foliage and the heady fragrance of tropical flowers, St Mikael Christian Protestant Church is an iconic landmark continues to serve the local community. Constructed over 30 years ago, its famous for its Gothic designed architecture, something that is quite rare in the region.
The imposing structure is made charming by the white and blue shades that colour its exterior walls. Inside, beautiful but simple white walls and vaulted ceilings complement the dark tones of the wooden pews that lead you up the 15 meter aisle to the alter. The pièce de résistance here are the enchanting stained glass windows that rise up behind the alter, casting a kaleidoscopic of colours across the marble floors and ceiling. 5 in total, each one depicts scenes from the bible, and according to historians, the stained glass was originally made in England over a century ago, before they found a home at Santo Mikael Church.
Bali has several beautiful locations for a dream wedding, but the Santo Mikael Church, with its tropical garden, classical architecture and humble interior make it a perfect setting for a memorable wedding.
