What more lovely and romantic setting for your wedding than the stunning tropical paradise of the Fijian Islands, just a short flight from New Zealand or Australia? Whether you choose an opulent all-inclusive destination wedding at one of the islands’ five-star resorts or a charming authentic Fijian ceremony, a wedding on one of the 333 islands of Fiji holiday packages combine the very best of luxury, adventure, and romance.
Most resorts, whether sprawling and elegant or small and intimate, offer delightful wedding packages, complete with ocean-side ceremony, luscious feasts, your choice of music from jazz to rock, and accommodations for your family and friends. Imagine the lovely ceremony: your feet in silken sand, those you love most around you (and so grateful for the spectacular holiday), and the sunset drenching the sky in rosy coral hues. Afterward, celebrate your marriage with enchanted evening of dining and dancing under the South Pacific stars, and then follow the trail of silvery moonlight to your beach-side honeymoon bungalow.
For those seeking a more traditional Fijian ceremony, wedding planners on the islands will arrange the ultimate native wedding, whether by a cascading waterfall, on a majestic cliff, in a traditional thatched wedding bure, or at a beautiful local church. You can be draped in flower garlands, arrive on a traditional wedding raft, process to the trumpeting of conch shells, and be serenaded by the angelic voices of a Fijian choir.
Fijian marriages are recognized throughout the world, but you’ll need to buy a license about 36 hours in advance from one of the island registries, and you must have your passport, original birth certificate, divorce papers (if applicable), and parental consent form if under 21. Catholic ceremonies require additional paperwork.
