Gay wedding ceremonies are not uncommon in Bali. There are a significant number of local and international wedding planners offering wedding planning services for gay couples.
Do take note that the Indonesian laws do not recognise same sex marriages. Holding a commitment or blessing ceremony in Bali is a viable option, but if you and your partner would like to have a legally-binding ceremony, you may have to consider the option of arranging wedding legalities in your home country, and holding a non-legal blessing or commitment ceremony in Bali.
