When it's your big day, you want everything to be utterly perfect. From which shade of peony to place in your bouquet to the wedding favours you've created for your guests, the little details make a huge difference. However, there is one particular element which takes centre stage – your location.
Although traditional church weddings are a classic choice, destination weddings are also a popular option with happy couples to be.
And what better sun-filled destination to choose than the beach nirvana of Vanua Levu, more specifically, the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort. For a little more convincing, read on to discover just why our five-star Fiji resort makes for the ultimate wedding destination.
Feel the sand in your toes
Whether you've always dreamed of a tropical getaway beach wedding or just want to stray away from the 'norm' for a unique service like no other, our traditional Fijian wedding ceremonies make for spectacular and unforgettable memories to last a lifetime.
Feel the warm, fine-grained sand under your feet, hear the soft, lapping waves hugging the shore and watch as the sun begins to sink slowly for the perfect backdrop to your perfect day. As with any traditional Fijian wedding ceremony, two Fijian warriors will carry the bride up the aisle to the awaiting groom to the sounds of Lali drums and chiming conch shells. Vows will be exchanged, tears will undoubtedly fall, all while your intimate group of guests help in celebrating a momentous occasion.
Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their nearest and dearest will experience a candle and star lit gourmet dinner.
Whatever you desire, our in-house wedding coordinator will work to create a day filled with love, with your needs and wants in mind.
Rest your head in paradise
Don't let the romance end, instead, commemorate your love in our secluded and luxurious Honeymoon Point Reef Bures. Our open plan, expansive suite is the perfect place to rest your heads for the first time as an official couple.
Spread out in the canopy-adorned king size bed located in the master bedroom, before taking a dip in your exclusive outdoor hot tub, complete with picture perfect views of the nearby Savusavu bay – sheer bliss!
Relax, relax, relax
Although the five-star Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort is a haven for relaxation and 'me time', our extensive and utterly exquisite spa resort is simply the cherry on top. Soothe the body, relax your mind and watch stress float away down the waves of the Vanua Levu ocean. In your own, private beachside bure, pick the perfect spa treatment to suit your desires.
Try our 'Bobo' massage. An art form passed down through generations, the rhythmic techniques ease tension and stimulate circulation, while the aroma of coconut wafts through the air.
Perhaps our 'Vakacegu' facial is more your preference? Allow our specialists to massage, replenish and rehydrate your skin, as you unwind completely. Enjoy exfoliating, deep cleansing and the application of masks in this 60-minute treatment.
Private island getaway
What better way to finish a getaway with your loved one than journeying to your own, private tropical island? Here at the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, our guests can hire out the paradise island for a day or half a day. Spend time snorkelling, enjoying your specially prepared picnic or simply sunbathing surrounded by native bird song.
With so many special features to our resort, you can be sure to experience a wedding that you'll remember for the rest of your lives. See how the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort can help you to create memories of a lifetime.
