Hong Kong, 13 October 2016 – There’s a new trend when it comes to modern day wedding planning. People are no longer hosting a 500-people ballroom reception with 10 courses, but rather choosing to fly abroad to tie the knot, with friends and family in tow. Laucala Island, the luxurious private island located in the heart of Fiji, is offeringcouples the chance to wed amongst the turquoise waters and white sand Fijian beaches, with their exclusive destination wedding package.
When celebrities like Elle Macpherson mark their special day on one of the world’s most luxurious private island hideaways, it’s hard not to see why Laucala Island would make for the perfect marriage destination. Known to be less stressful and a lot more romantic, a destination wedding that offers 25 private villas each with their own pool, as well as all-inclusive dining at one of five restaurants and the freedom to experience a variety of sport and leisure activities, is really a once in a lifetime experience that can be shared with one’s nearest and dearest for more than just a few hours.
The destination wedding package is offered to six guests or more, and includes an official wedding certificate and celebrant, standard flower decorations, choir and serenades, a bottle of Crystal Roederer for the welcome cocktail party and a special dinner arrangement where Head Chef will create personalized dishes for the wedding party.
Couples can tailor ceremonies to create their ideal romantic setting any time during the day, whether an intimate reception on the beach at sunset, or alongside family and friends in the Fijian village chapel. The village, replicated on the island with the assistance of scholars, showcases the indigenous Pacific Islands culture and provides an impressive stage for ceremonies, dances and weddings.
After the ceremony, Laucala offers a special island experience for the newlyweds with an outing to Tadra Beach, meaning “dream beach” in Fijian. A secluded beach accessible only by boat, catamaran or Jet Ski, Tadra Beach is available for only one couple at any given time, ensuring the ultimate private experience. The couple can enjoy an intimate picnic under the shade of indigenous trees or indulge in some of Laucala’s best snorkeling off Seagrass Bay.
During the stay, the resort arranges a 60 minute spa treatment of the couple’s choice. Laucala Island also offers a complimentary sunset cruise with champagne onboard the luxury sailboat, Rere Ahi. The cruise will conclude with a barbeque dinner at the guest jetty, complimented by a warm bonfire and serenades. Laucala Island ensures that above all else, the couple feels very special.
