With sparkling azure waters, glistening white beaches, picture perfect islands and all-year-round tropical weather, it’s little wonder why so many people choose Fiji for their wedding. Fiji is one of the most romantic places on earth, and the perfect place to start your married journey.

With Fiji playing host to so many weddings, the archipelago of more than 332 islands offers a huge number of exquisite venues. Whether you choose a traditional or modern, beach or garden, large or small ceremony, you will always find the perfect venue to suit your wedding needs. For those wanting to see it all, there are wedding packages available for luxurious cruises that come all inclusive of your ceremony, accommodation, meals, daily stopovers and water activities.

Organising a Fijian wedding

Many people fear that getting married abroad means a difficult task in organising, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Fiji has a large range of professional wedding coordinators on hand who will help make your day magical for a reasonable price. From photography and flowers to food and the honeymoon, you can have every detail arranged for you should you so wish.

Captain Cook Cruises offer 7,4 or 3-night cruises to the Yasawa Islands or Remote Northern Fiji, and every little detail can be taken care of. Wedding packages include:

  • A dedicated wedding planner to make your day one you will never forget
  • Marriage Ceremony performed by a celebrant with Fijian singer and guitarist
  • Flowers, petals, sparkling wine and wedding cake
  • Marriage certificate
  • Photography
  • Spa treatments, hair and makeup

The expense

Having your wedding in Fiji can be a cost-effective way of having the wedding of your dreams. Fiji offers affordable packages to suit every budget, and the long list of wedding experts available can help you secure an incredible package at the price you want.

For family and friends wanting to be part of your special day, packages are always available. Captain Cook Cruises offers some amazing group packages when 15 or more passengers are travelling and, depending on your numbers, you could save up to 50% on your wedding.

What you will need

To get married in Fiji, couples must produce a range of documents including original birth certificate, valid passports, divorce or deceased papers (if applicable) and a marriage license. The legal age of consent to marry is 18 years for both male and female.

Where to go

The Yasawa Islands offer spectacular scenery and dramatic backdrops set away from the commercialism of some holiday hotspots. An archipelago of about 20 volcanic islands, the Yasawa group is the perfect balance of luxury and natural beauty. Cruising is the best way to explore the islands, and Captain Cook Cruises’ MV Reef Endeavour is small enough to negotiate the remote, hard-to-get-to spots you don’t want to miss.

For those wanting a cultural experience, as well as the perfect wedding, you can’t go past Northern Fiji’s garden islands. The people are incredibly friendly and the leisurely pace of life makes it the ideal place to unwind and celebrate your love with your nearest and dearest.

If you are after a stress-free wedding that’s both memorable and relaxing, Fiji makes the perfect destination. Getting to and from Fiji is easy, and the travel discounts available give an opportunity to share a unique experience with close family or an intimate circle of friends. There is something to suit everyone and every budget, and the friendly English speaking locals will only add to your incredible wedding.
