Shannon’s wedding made us go WOW instantly – not only is she a drop-dead gorgeous bride but the details of the day were so pretty and the couple shots of her and her hubby Neil were total #couplegoals. Shannon and Neil were married at the Outrigger in November 2016.
Here is Shannon’s feedback on her Fiji wedding:
We had the most positive and seamless experience that a bride could have thanks to the very accommodating and helpful staff at the Outrigger Fiji Resort.
The service, food, venue and atmosphere at the resort was phenomenal and I highly recommend brides looking in Fiji to check out the Outrigger on the very beautiful Coral coast. I had 61 guests in total at the wedding all from overseas. It was truly overwhelming and amazing that so many people flew out for my Wedding.
The morning getting ready was so fun and relaxed as I had the amazing team from Totoka Hair & Makeup Fiji working on my Bridal party’s hair, I was really worried coming from Australia to a foreign country the hair stylists wouldn’t be the same as back home but they were so amazing and knew exactly what I wanted.
My makeup artist was from Australia, she does destination weddings and caters to all skin tones and ethnicities which was important to me as often many people cannot get my look right making me either too fair or too bronzed. I’ve known Jo for a few years now and I had to invite her over to Fiji to make me look the part on my big day. The whole day and night I was getting compliments on the beautiful natural makeup she did for myself and my bridal party.
The energy on the morning was great and I’ll never forget feeling like a princess just before I got to walk down the aisle to the love of my life.
Our ceremony took place at the Outrigger Loloma Chapel and the reception at Vahavu adults only poolside.
My photographer for the day and night was Bruce from Zoom Photography Fiji and he was the most chilled out and calm photographer I’ve ever worked with! He really knows how to capture those special moments and not make photographs look so staged which I absolutely fell in love with.
Bula Bride was my inspiration to get married in the beautiful paradise that is Fiji.
My advise to other brides getting married in Fiji is having fewer options/choices is a good thing!
Having a Fiji wedding is the best decision you will ever make – it is a beautiful atmosphere, beautiful surroundings, beautiful people and the best place to make beautiful memories with loved ones.
