Fiji Wedding: How to get married in Fiji
Documents required for Fiji wedding license:
A Fiji marriage is legally accepted worldwide.
The following documents are required to legally register your marriage in Fiji (all in English). If they are not in English you will need to provide translated versions of the documents as well as the original. You will need to bring the originals of all of the documents with you:
- Bio page of Passports (passports must have at least 6 months validity following your arrival date in Fiji)
- Birth Certificates (translated if not in English)
- 1 passport sized photo (each) of the bride and groom
- Confirmation of Single Status or Statutory Declaration made by each person stating that they are not married and witnessed by JP. This should be dated no more than two months prior to the wedding date so that it is current.
- Fiji Marriage Licence Application with your signatures witnessed by a JP on the side of the form beside the space for the Registrar General or District Register to sign.
- Divorce decree (if previously married). Death certificate (if spouse died).
- For persons under the age of 21, parental consent is required.
Please email us copies of these documents at least 3 weeks before your arrival and we will meet with the District Office to review your documents prior to your arrival. You are required to have your signatures witnessed at a District Office (Taveuni, Savusavu or Nadi) prior to your wedding license being issued so please plan your arrival and wedding date accordingly as the District office is not open on weekends. Following lodgement of the application it can take up to 24 hours to obtain your wedding license. In some cases it can be issued on the spot at the District Office.
Fiji Wedding Photographers, Videographers & Hair/Makeup
Fiji has many wonderful wedding photographers and videographers. We can assist you to arrange one of them to travel to The Remote Resort to capture your day. Please note as the photographers are based on the main island, in addition to their photography fee you will need to cover their airfares, meals and accommodation. If you're looking for just some candid shots of the two of you, that can easily be arranged by our resort staff.
We recommend the following Fiji Wedding Photographers:
- Kama Catch Me
- K Thorpe Photography
- Steve & Esther's wedding shot by K Thorpe Photography at The Remote Resort
- Ocean Studios Fiji
- Michelle & Jonathan's wedding shot by Keiza of Ocean Studios Fiji at The Remote Resort
- Lia & Stu Photography - See their Jet Stream Journal blog and video of their visit to The Remote Resort
- Nadi Bay Photography
- Zoom Fiji Photographers
Most weddings are held at the resort at around 3 to 4pm on your wedding day, although we can accommodate your preferred time. Please take a look at the tide times for Suva, Fiji if you are planning a beach location and would like either a low-tide or high-tide style. As the sun sets behind our peninsula, there is not direct sun on the beach in the late afternoon making it a really pleasant setting for your afternoon nuptials. We also offer wedding ceremonies on our jetty, on the grass in front of our Main Pavilion with sweeping ocean views, at the hidden beach (by boat), high up on the peak of our peninsula (not for the faint-hearted as the only way there is to hike) or any other location at the resort. We recommend couples wait till they arrive to choose their exact location. In the case of rain we can be flexible and change your preferred date with 24 hours notice or set up the wedding ceremony location on the covered deck of the Main Pavilion.
If you would like your favorite song playing as you walk down the aisle, sign your papers or after your ceremony, we recommend that you load them onto an iPod/iPhone, etc and bring them to the Resort. We will provide a portable player for you, or you may like to bring your own portable speakers to ensure you know the quality of sound available. Should you choose a location close to the Main Pavilion, we will be able to plug your device in to the main sound system. Alternatively you may prefer our Fijian serenaders to play the guitar and sing Fijian songs for you, or perhaps a combination of the two.
Our wedding package includes both a bridal bouquet as well as floral decorations for your chosen wedding location and buttonhole for the groom. Fiji has many varieties of tropical flowers. We generally make your bouquet using a collection locally-sourced tropical flowers such as gingers (red or pink), frangipanis (white, yellow+white or pink), hibiscus (red, white or pink) and green ferns, depending on what is in season. If you have a preference for a particular variety of flower(s) for your bouquet, please let us know based on the images below and we'll let you know if they'll be in season.
