Fiji Weddings

Couples seeking to wed beside a backdrop of pristine white sand and sun-dappled water can’t look beyond a Fiji destination wedding. Couples will also have the opportunity to incorporate beautiful Fijian customs in their ceremony, traditions which may include walking up the aisle to shower of tropical petals and a serenading Fijian choir.

Thanks to a healthy wedding industry, getting married in Fiji has never been easier. With a wide range of suppliers and locations to choose from, including the beautiful resorts below, Fiji is experienced in offering sensational wedding and honeymoon experiences.

What you need to know before getting married in Fiji

Couples must be of at least 18 years old to legally marry in Fiji.

Required Documents

  • Birch certificates
  • Passports with valid legal status
  • Divorce certificates (if applicable)
  • Death of spouse certificate (if applicable)
  • Cerificate of Single Status or Certificate of No Legal Impediment (non-residents only)

Acquiring a Marriage License

Marriage licenses must be obtained from a local marriage registry or district office in Fiji prior to the ceremony.

All registered marriage certificates will be forwarded to the Foreign Affairs office to obtain an Apostille seal to authenticate that the marriage is legal and recognised in foreign countries.

Fees covering the license application and marriage certificate will be incurred. This may be included in the wedding package you select but should be confirmed upon enquiry.

Marriage Celebrants

By law, only local Fijian celebrants may officiate a marriage. If couples wish to bring a celebrant from overseas, arrangements can be made for a joint ceremony in which the foreign celebrant arranges the vows and blessings while the local celebrant solemnizes the marriage and signs the marriage certificate.
