Bali News: The Wedding of the Season
Click Image to Enlarge

(4/4/2005)

On March 20, 2005, Noel Cohen, the Son of Warner Brothers Vice-President Robert Winder, married Buratwangi, daughter of famous Balinese artists, Made Wianta, in a traditional Bali-Hindu ceremony held in Wianta's ancestral village of Apuan, near Tabanan.

The Couple, Noel (31) and Buratwangi (27) met several years ago in Santa Barbara where the young Balinese lady was pursuing a college education and where Cohen is employed as a film festival organizer and entertainment consultant.

In addition to formalizing their marriage in the U.S., the bride and groom also decided to have their union blessed in accordance with Bali-Hindu traditions.

Both a Wedding and an Adoption

The decision to wed in Bali automaticall introduced a number of requirements, including Noel's formal acceptance of the Hindu faith; the requirement for the grooms teeth to be filed flat in accordance with local traditions; and the actual consecration of the wedding by Mangku Teken, a spiritual leaded of the Apuan community.

In what may seem strange to to those unfamiliar with Balinese culture and law, Noel is now by local custom married to his Sister. Because local religious and legal customs follow the principle of primogeniture which dictates that the eldest son inherits his Father's wealth and because the Wianta's have no male heir, Noel underwent an additional nyentana ceremony giving him the status of a Son and naming him the sole heir in the Wianta household.

Following the completion of numerous rituals and ceremonies in Apuan, the wedding party headed to the south for a more contemporary celebration of the nuptials held at the Ritz Carlton Resort & Spa attended by local dignitaries, family and friends from both Indonesia and the United States.

balidiscovery.com extends its congratulations and best wishes to the bride and grooom; Robert and Mary Winder - the parents of Noel Cohen; and Made Wianta and Ibu Intan Kirana, the parents of Buratwangi and their new Son, Noel.
