wedding in fiji


Can anyone tell me if it is possible to have a civil wedding in fiji, if you are from the U.K. We enquired about hawaii and were told we it was not legally possible, we wld have to marry in the u.k and then have a blessing in hawaii, is this the same for fiji?

also would the weather be good in may?

kind regards,

You can legally marry in Fiji. It is a very popular destination for many English people for weddings. You need to apply for a marriage licence, at least 48 hours ahead, in person so you would have to spend a few days in Nadi or Suva. A lot of resorts will arrange everything for you. You could also contact the Fiji touorist bureau, they could probably give you more advice. The weather in May is usually very nice. Warm, not too hot, cooler at night and the water temp. is great too . My advice is go to the islands.

I have my wedding booked in Fiji at New Year and am travelling from Scotland. I used resortweddings.com who are based in Brisbane and they were very good. You can also contact the big resorts via their websites and most of them have wedding co-ordinators. Your fiji marriage is legally recognised in the UK. You can have a civil or religious ceremony.

We have booked our wedding through resortweddings but booked the flights ourselves from the UK.

Hope this helps.
