Fiji is one of the most beautiful and romantic destinations on Earth and the perfect setting for both a wedding and a honeymoon. The scenery is breathtaking, the Fijian people are warm and welcoming and the variety of wedding and honeymoon options is endless.


The numerous resorts and hotels offer a smorgasbord of delightful wedding options. The idea of a simple barefoot ceremony on a white sand beach might appeal to you, with flowers in your hair and serenaded by a joyous chorus of Fijian villagers.

Or what about a traditional Fijian wedding ceremony, where the bride is escorted to her waiting groom by Fijian warriors, accompanied by the beating of drums and the trumpeting of conch shells?

The choice of venues is also seemingly endless, from the hilltop chapel at the Outrigger on the Lagoon on the Coral Coast, to the many island resorts including those on Mana, Matamatoa, Tokoriki, Denarau and Taveuni.

Many hotels and resorts offer complete wedding packages, where everything is taken care of from the ceremony and reception to the guests’ accommodation. Captain Cook Cruises offer weddings on the Tivua Island day cruise or on any beach they visit on the Reef Endeavour – and they even provide a wedding organiser to make sure the day is perfect and the licence is in place.

It all depends on what kind of wedding you and your partner want, because Fiji has it all; from five-star with all the trimmings, to a simple ceremony with sand between your toes.


Once you’ve said your vows, it’s time to swap your wedding clothes for a swimsuit and dive headlong into the delights of this tropical paradise. Some of the many Fijian honeymoon options include:

  • A small ship cruise through the islands, where you’ll enjoy cocktails at sunset, exploring deserted white sand beaches and snorkelling amongst myriads of tropical fish in sparkling lagoons.
  • Discover the rich Fijian culture and enjoy a lovo feast, traditional village song and dance and the breathtaking firewalking ceremony, where Fijian warriors walk unscathed across red hot coals.
  • Kick back on the beach in your own private bure by the water, sipping cocktails on the deck or relaxing under the soothing hands of a local Fijian masseur.
  • Explore lush volcanic landscapes of tropical rainforest, cascading waterfalls, secret jungle pools and colourful birdlife.

Captain Cook Cruises even offer a honeymoon package which features breakfast in bed, sparkling wine and luxurious massages during your cruise through the islands.


If you’re planning to get married in Fiji, you’ll need to take care of a few formalities beforehand. Couples will need to attend a registry office on one of the islands with their passports, birth certificates and written parental consent if under 21.

You’ll also need to send photocopies of these documents at least two weeks ahead of time and then sign a marriage license when you arrive.

Apart from that, getting married and honeymooning in Fiji is pretty straightforward. Just decide on your wedding theme, book your accommodation and get ready for the most beautiful and romantic time of your life.
