A South Pacific Island wedding is a “dream come true”. It is very cost effective, compared to a wedding at home. All you need to do is invite your guests, plan your wedding attire and we will assist with the rest.
We take care of all the arrangements for you, including your own accommodation and flights, travel arrangements for your family and guests. As well as liaising with the wedding co-coordinator at your chosen Resort on your behalf. You and I work together on a detailed wedding day planner, outlining all the finer details to communicate to the Resort your exact wishes on your special day. We pride ourselves on attention to detail and the highest level of service and advice to our clients.
For your guests, I will provide initial information about the destination, resort and approximate package prices to send with your save-the-date cards. Following that a two page document with further information for your guests, confirmed package prices and a registration form for you to send with your wedding invitations. Your guests will then have all the information they need to can contact me directly to arrange their own travel. So all you have to worry about is planning your dream wedding day.
We are with you all the way, from the time you decide to proceed, to the day you return from your wedding. These are just a few of the important ingredients that have made our business so successful.

Why is it a good decision to engage the services of a wedding specialist?
We want your dream Fijian wedding to be a stress free positive experience, so we take this stress away from you. “Island time” is a real thing, they are so relaxed in Fiji that it can take longer than we would normally expect for a reply to our questions, which can become quite stressful. So you can leave the chasing to us and we will keep you informed. We keep up to date with the Resorts and have been to the most popular ones you will likely be looking at so know these places well and can answer most simple questions without having to ask the Resort and wait for a reply. We make sure all details are covered off on in an easy to read detailed wedding planner document of which the final copy goes to the Resort so were all on the same page when you arrive at your wedding venue.
What makes Fiji a great place to get married in?
Fiji is such an awesome destination (my favourite actually), it is so diverse and there are so many options – something for everyone. All budgets can be catered for within Fiji from the mainland (Coral Coast and Denarau) to the Outer Islands, which isn’t necessarily a more expensive option… Gorgeous beaches and Resort gardens make the perfect photos and the Fijian people are so welcoming and great with kids. You could get married at a Resort in the mainland and then take a launch transfer to the outer Islands the next day and have your honeymoon on a beautiful Island only an hour away… The options are limitless, so let your imagination run wild.
Which other wedding vendors do you like to work with?
A wedding is very personal, so I am able to work with anyone that the Bride and Groom choose. I do have my favourite Resorts and I will recommend to the Bride and Groom the ones I think would suit their ideal wedding. Most of these Resorts themselves work with suppliers for photography, flowers, wedding cakes etc so a lot of the Resort options are actually a one-stop-shop in themselves.
Do you have wedding packages and what are they?
I don’t myself, as I just help co-ordinate the wedding itself at the chosen Resort. It is the Resorts who set the packages and these can be from a simple ceremony at Mana Island Resort and Spa from FJD$1256.00 where you can choose to add additional items such as flowers, island warrior escort, photography, entertainment etc. To a more inclusive package to include a reception dinner and 3 hour beverage package for the first 30 guests, 4 nights accommodation for the bride and groom from FJD$5500.00
Do you also offer customized wedding package and what have you done recently?
Yes again this is driven by the Resorts themselves and what each individual Resort offers. In this case you would start with a basic ceremony package and add on extra’s to tailor make the package to suit the Bride and Groom.
Do you have a popular property/venue that is requested and why?
There are lots of popular options, and again I can recommend based on the Bride and Groom’s idea of their perfect wedding. Some of my favourites include The Warwick and The Shangri-La on the Coral Coast, Mana and Plantation in the outer Islands and The Sofitel and Radisson Blu in Denarau.
How many weddings on average do you handle in a year?
In the past we have organized 12-15 weddings per year.
Do you also arrange couples honeymoon?
Yes of course – South Pacific Weddings is actually a division of World Travellers King Country a general travel agency so we can send clients anywhere in the world. We often have clients that will get married at a Resort and spend some time prior to the wedding there with their friends and family and then take 2 or 3 nights after the wedding to themselves and go to another Resort for their honeymoon. Or another option is to upgrade your room for the last few nights of stay and have a honeymoon suite, if you didn’t want to completely change Resorts, but treat yourselves to something a bit nicer.
How much lead time do you require from couples to confirm their details?
We recommend booking 12-24 months in advance if you have a specific date in mind, as many Resorts will only allow one wedding per day. We also recommend this amount of time so that you can give your guests time to save to travel to your wedding – we can also assist them with their own arrangements and provide you with information to accompany your save-the-date cards and/or wedding invitations. We can organize a wedding in much shorter time, however again we would like it to be a stress free experience for you, so the more time the better.
Top 3 tips for couples to consider while planning wedding in Fiji?
• Consider your guests budget to attend your wedding – an overseas wedding requires time for them to save. It will likely mean some of the guests you would like to have there may not be able to attend due to the cost or health reasons, so this needs careful consideration. However, this can also be a good thing, as an offshore wedding will potentially put off those people you would rather not have at your wedding 😉
• The legal requirement to organize the wedding license is to be in Fiji 3 full working days prior to (not including) your wedding day. So you will need to plan around this, and if only wanting to stay for a week yourselves you might find you are then departing Fiji before your guests instead of being able to enjoy time after the wedding with them.
• The Sun sets in Fiji at approximately 6.00pm and there is no twilight, so it will be dark within a few minutes of sunset. I would therefore suggest your wedding ceremony at 3.30pm / 4.00pm followed by photos and pre-dinner drinks and canapes for your guest whilst you have photos. Then your wedding reception to commence at 6.30pm with dinner ready at 7.00pm
