Fiji is a beautiful and relatively stress-free place to get married and most resorts offer wedding packages with ceremonies held on the beachfront. For those with large groups in attendance, getting married on the main island of Viti Levu is more convenient, but the atmosphere on the offshore islands is far more intimate and a much better option for smaller parties. Amongst the best options are Octopus Resort and Oarsman’s Bay Lodge in the Yasawas; Matamanoa Island Resort and Treasure Island Resort, in the Mamanuca Islands. If getting married on the beach, find out about the tides and sun direction before fixing a time. Early-morning weddings are worth considering as it‘s not only cooler and less windy, but also less likely to rain – there’s nothing more dampening than reciting your vows at a makeshift altar in the resort restaurant.

The practicalities of obtaining a marriage licence are very straightforward and all resorts will help with the paperwork. For more information contact www.fijinet.com.
