Wedding Packages

JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU FIJI ISLANDS RESORT
The Grand Wedding Ceremony – ‘Vaka Mau Levu’: £1560
Package Includes:
This special wedding ceremony begins against the stunning background of Savusavu Bay, the singing of the village choir and the beating of the lali drum. Fijian warriors in traditional dress escort the groom to await the bridal procession at the ‘altar’, which is lovingly decorated with palm fronds, tropical flowers and set in the gardens of the resort near the beach. The groom assumes his position and the lali drum begins a wedding beat. The bride is escorted down the jetty by Fijian warriors to the awaiting bili bili, a Fijian bamboo raft festooned with tropical flowers. As the bili bili, poled by Fijian warriors
makes its gentle journey across the bay, the procession is accompanied by the unique sound of the davui (a conch shell) that is blown by a warrior on the raft to announce the bride’s arrival. The bili bili is met by awaiting Fijian warrior escorts, who lift the bride ashore and escort her to her awaiting groom and their guests. These activities are accompanied by the joyful a capella singing of the village choir. Once the traditional western ceremony is completed, the
Fijian warriors lead the newlyweds onto the bili bili for their romantic journey back to the dock, where they are feted with Champagne and savories as they bay reflects the setting sun. If the bridal couple wish, guests may be invited to await their arrival and join in the celebrations.
The wedding party then moves to a traditional Fijian Kava ceremony that creates a “spirit of place” for this day that will become etched as a magical memory of a lifetime. The festivities continue among friends with wedding cake, Champagne and many congratulations. The wedding feast that follows may be a private dinner for two on the pier or at another romantic location shared with friends.
The Bula Boys serenade throughout the dinner. A Fijian meke may also be arranged for an additional fee, featuring traditional dances and songs.
*Please note the timing of The Grand Wedding depends on the tides, the time of sunset and weather conditions.
