Fiji Elopement | Unique Fiji Wedding

Being Fiji Wedding Photographers, we wanted a Fiji Wedding Package that was intimate, personalised in details, and different to anything we had experienced before as Photographers.  We knew we had to choose special suppliers that could create our magical Fiji Elopement and make it perfect for us.

Fiji Elopement

Fiji is the perfect elopement destination with so many wonderful suppliers here in the industry, and most go over and above for couples to create their perfect day, but for us, we just couldn’t go past the bespoke weddings created by Lee and Louise of Taste Fiji.

Taste Fiji duo Lee and Louise only accept a handful of weddings each year because of the personalised aspect.

Every detail is considered and executed by themselves and their team.  As friends, we are so honoured they agreed to look after ours. Regardless of our friendship, I cannot speak highly enough of their talent, creativity, and dedication to each wedding they create. I have personally captured several of their weddings in various locations, and they are always stunningly beautiful with details that blow the bridal couple and their families away.

Over several meetings, they listened to each and every idea we both had and cleverly brought our ideas into our morning.

We had complete faith in them both that we asked Louise to style our day keeping it simple yet elegant. We had two particular big requests that were not the easiest of tasks.

  1. To find a location with a view where we had not captured a beautiful wedding previously.
  2. A bouquet, unlike anything we had captured before.

Louise was amazing and delivered both requests plus our endless other ideas.  Our planned ceremony location changed literally 3 weeks before the day, and even under this pressure, she found our perfect spot and delivered over and above our dreams.  The bouquet was stunning with Gardenias as the feature and the aroma was beautiful. Our guest list was small so the details were important.

Hair and Makeup

Starting with hair and makeup, I couldn’t go past asking Ash from Hair and Makeup Perfectionist to transform me on our day.

Ash is beyond talented, creating wedding hair and makeup that is specifically unique for each bride and what suits their look. A kind soul and wonderful company to have on your wedding day. With a sunrise wedding, his arrival time was 4 am. How committed is that!! Even with little light, he managed to create my wedding day look perfectly & make me feel beautiful.

Venue

Candles created a romantic touch to our sunrise ceremony

Louise and Lee set up our venue which was a small hill with a view in Sabeto at Aviva Farms.  We wanted a sunrise wedding, where the day was fresh and new, peaceful and the light magic. We asked for an elegant look that was not to take away from the feel and view. And a small champagne station for celebration and cheer immediately afterward.

Our Images were by our very own Leezett Photography team. Our images were captured quickly and efficiently and not once did I feel I was at work. I was on the other side of the camera, and they all made us feel relaxed and beautiful, and the photography session was fun treating us as clients which was a wonderful experience.

Celebrant

Our friend Usaia of Celebrant Fiji is Fiji’s BEST celebrant. He officiated our ceremony, and it was perfect. His humor, communication and energetic manner are always the highlights of weddings he attends.  He is also the talent behind Manakilagi Culture Group where they entertain crowds with traditional dancing and fire shows. If we had a wedding reception, we would have hired their company 100%

My Bouquet featured Gardenias from Taste Fiji’s garden. The aroma was beautiful and Louise created it with her very own hands and it was beyond my dreams, I loved it.

The remainder of the day was spent relaxing enjoying the view from Sapphire Bay Villas.

It was important to us that our wedding day was spent with those we love, to lounge around swimming, enjoying massages and eating all day.  Taste Fiji created the perfect grazing table using decadent local produce.

We organised Eta from “Feel Beta with Eta” to surprise our guests with hour massages throughout the day.  Eta was amazing, massaging our tired post-wedding bodies and we will certainly be booking her again soon. Her massage table was A grade and the aromas of the room instantly relaxed me as I walked in.  She is available throughout Fiji on appointment.

Fiji Wedding Cake

Our gorgeous wedding cake by Taste Fiji

Lee and Louise again exceeded our expectations with our wedding cake.  Being travelers, they added the suitcase to represent that part of our life which is the centre of who we are as a couple.  The flavour was mango (our favourite fruit) and ginger. John had casually mentioned fruit and cream for dessert, so they took it to another level incorporating it into our wedding cake. The flowers used matched our bouquet and wedding arbour.

Our day was perfect. Thank you to our suppliers for all their hard work and commitment to making our day uniquely us and for listening to all our requests and bringing it together with such dedication.  Your hardworking ethics and talent was the reason behind our choices, but the fact you were also our friends made the experience that much more special. x
