Weddings & Honeymooners

Jean-Michel Cousteau Fiji Islands Resort offers several types of weddings that capture the essence of the romantic dreams that couples have for their special day. We can also work in partnership to design a range of special wedding ceremonies to suit any style and budget.

The Grand Wedding Ceremony – “Vaka Mau Levu” from $2,150 USD inc. tax
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 complete, the Fijian warriors lead the newlyweds onto the bili bili for their romantic journey back to the dock, where they are f
