That's a really good question and ultimately, it's up to you. We know that you can do research online but that can take hours, wouldn't you rather spend that time looking at dresses and culling the guest list?
No one knows the islands like we do. We've been travelling to and selling the Pacific for almost 20 years, we've staged and delivered untold weddings and events, lived in Fiji so we know about 'island time' and even got married in Fiji (all in the name of research!) So we will listen to both of your needs and desires and suggest locations that tick all your boxes.
We're not worried about what your mother, mother-in-law, sister or cousin thinks, we listen to just the two of you. Often that can assist with clarity and making decisions.
Lastly, think of Island Weddings as your right-hand man (or lady). Getting married and the whole wedding process can be a bit daunting. We hold you by the hand and step you through the process to make it simple and easy.
Raumati Barbara is an approved Travel Broker for Travel Managers and operates under Vincent George Travel.
That's the best part - it's FREE! The suppliers you choose pay us a commission just like a travel agent does.
Yes, it's legal in the country you get married. It won't be registered in New Zealand however. Once you get back home you can use your marriage certificate to change your name on drivers license, passports, etc.
Absolutely ! We know all the suppliers so will negotiate with the resorts and airline on your behalf to make sure you get the very best deal.
Yes! We can accept Q-card.
We also offer the option to just put $100 deposit down, we set up an account for each guest and they can pay it off throughout the year, before you travel. This applies to accommodation and transfers. If booking group flights they are also flexible with payment.
Of course :-)
We collaborate with a fantastic magazine called Pacific Romance. It has all the ins and outs of getting married or honeymooning in the islands including tips from the specialists in the islands (including me!). You can see an e-version here Pacific Romance brochure or email us with your postal address.
I've always been passionate about and cry at every single wedding, even the ones on TV. I've visited and stayed at 95% of the resorts in the South Pacific so I can help choose the one that suits you. I lived in Fiji for 3 years and planned and produced weddings there and have done untold destination weddings since. I even got married at Plantation Island Resort - this is me!
Thank you so much for organising our wedding. We had a big wedding with 50 guests and Raumati and her team made it so easy and stress free. They were so friendly and easy to deal with and nothing was a problem. They took care of everything and dealt with all my guest inquiries so I didn't have too. Would highly recommend Island Weddings to everyone planning an Island wedding it was beyond amazing!!
