Thinking of eloping to Fiji?

For a growing number of couples, the thought of organising a ‘traditional’ wedding is overwhelming and fraught with unwanted stress  – or sometimes it’s just not their style. So, it’s not surprising that a growing number of loved-up couples are choosing to elope to Fiji.

Fiji offers eloping couples a great range of options and choice when it comes to the actual wedding ceremony.  Whether it’s exchanging wedding vows on a private beach or perhaps in an exotic tropical garden setting or even a quaint beachside chapel – Fiji is definitely one of the most romantic places in the world to get married. Best of all it’s only a few hours from Australia and the weather is great year round.

While a Fijian wedding is legally binding and recognised, overseas visitors will need to ensure they bring the required documentation to officiate the union.

Eloping to Fiji with kids

Fiji has long been a favourite destination for couples getting married for a second time, especially those with a ‘Brady Bunch’ style union of kids from previous marriages.  Fiji’s popularity is mainly due to the short travel times from Australia and the excellent babysitting and Kid’s Clubs on offer, giving the happy couple time alone to enjoy themselves confident the kids are being well cared for.

We have organised a countless number of wedding ceremonies for ‘second-timers’ electing to get married in a small, intimate ceremony with only their children present.   With the formalities out of the way, everyone can kick up their heels and enjoy a great family holiday together.

Two resorts we think are perfectly suited for romantic couples with kids of any age are The Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa and Castaway Island Resort.
