DiDi Somerton has been living in Lombok and on the Gili Islands for almost 10 years.

Involved in the development and management of two of Gili Trawangan’s most successful businesses, Diane has used her extensive knowledge of local culture and customs, as well as her many years’ experience in Hospitality & Event Management, to create Lombok and the Gili Islands first personalised, complete Wedding Planning and Advisory Service.

Originally from England and Switzerland, Di moved to Australia in 1990 and worked with some of Sydney’s most influential and successful Event Management Consultants.

Since moving to Indonesia, she has been responsible for the planning and organisation of weddings and special events for various venues on the Gili Islands.

Diane established PT. White Sands Weddings Lombok and the Gili Islands to create her own personalised service using local products and resources, rather than importing expensive items and consultants from Bali.
