Working worth Dearne & Dean was an absolute pleasure we were also lucky enough to be in Fiji to help them out on the day. You could feel the love they had for each other and their great family and friends who had not only travelled to Fiji for the big day but also travelled 6 hours to Sydney to then fly out. This was a great country wedding in the tropics of Fiji.
Dearne & Dean decide to have their wedding in Fiji as they thought it would be a good way to have the wedding and honeymoon all in the one place, and as they have two young girls Fiji was the prefect place.
They decided they needed to engage the services of a wedding planner as they did not know where to start as the process seemed overwhelming.
There ceremony was held on the Sheraton Beachfront we kept it very simple with pink chair ties.
Dearne wore a Gerry Shaw champagne wedding dress.
The bridesmaid wore a dusty pink dress and the flower girls wore white linen dresses with pink embellishments on them.
The boys wore a white shirt and khaki cotton pants.
As the weather was not on our side we had to move their reception location to the Westin Ballroom. Everyone at the Sheraton and from Grace Creations pulled together to set the room up and it looked amazing.
What they loved most about the wedding was the atmosphere, setting and weather and catching up with all there friends.
We wish them and their family all the happiness in their future life together.
A big thank you to Tokman Imagez for the beautiful photos.
Corinne & Mark we married at the beautiful Sheraton Fiji in September last year. They and an 11.30am ceremony followed by a lunch time reception in the Flying Fish Restaurant. Their brief to us was they wanted a pool party which was something we had not done before but I think we met the brief very well.
Corinne and Mark chose Fiji for their wedding location as they wanted a beautiful beach wedding and thought Fiji was very affordable and an absolutely gorgeous country. They also have 3 children and knew Fiji was very family friendly place.
They chose a wedding planner to ease the burden for themselves and make the experience as enjoyable and easy a possible.
“hiring a wedding planner It makes all the decisions so much easier and eases the overwhelming amount of planning that you need to do. Chelsea was great and negotiated with the Sheraton for us and organised everything! We just had to choose what we wanted”
The bride wore a lace/vintage style dress that was bought online
The groom and groomsmen wore natural coloured linen pants and white linen shirts, also bought online.
The bridesmaids wore full-length beige coloured dresses with rose detail on the chest.
They said the main highlights of the day was definitely the Kava Ceremony and jumping into the pool fully clothed.
Hair and Makeup Perfections went above and beyond, this is our favourite photo.
Prior to the wedding some of the wedding guests went Zip lining and to the Mud baths and had a great time. The day after the wedding we organised a half-day South Sea cruise with their guests which they said was very relaxing and enjoyable! They went snorkelling, paddle boarding, kayaking and relaxed with massages and highly recommend it.
“I would definitely recommend hiring a wedding planner like Chelsea as she is an expert and knows the ins and outs of a wedding in Fiji and can help to negotiate with the hotels to ensure you receive exactly what you want.”
“We had the best day of our lives! Corinne.
A big thank you to Sam from Ocean Studios for these great images.
Kiara and Antony always knew they wanted a destination wedding for their special day. They dreamed of a tropical location and first thought that the Cook Islands or Hawaii would be great option, but after a quick trip to Fiji their heart was set on this beautiful oasis.
Destination weddings can be tricky to organise so both Kiara and Antony knew they would need some help and called us in to assist them. Kiara tells “With the distance, time difference and also not being very familiar with Fiji, I needed someone who had organised a lot of weddings in Fiji and knew the best places and best suppliers to use. It was something my husband and I discussed and we decided that spending that extra money was worth saving us the stress and fear of the unknown. We did not regret it”
With the help and guidance from Chelsea Jayne Weddings, Kiara and Antony made the decision that the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Club & Spa on the Coral Coast would be the perfect location for their wedding.
With all the guests staying at this gorgeous resort, Kiara and Antony arranged for drinks in the Kama Lounge the night before the wedding so that everyone could meet and get to know each other. What a fantastic idea!
The ceremony was held in the chapel within the beautiful grounds of the resort.
Kiara looked beautiful in her amazing full length mermaid style wedding gown in off white with tulle and feather details. How amazing are her Manolo Blahnik shoes to match.
Antony and his groomsmen wore long sleeve white shirts made from light cotton and dark grey pin stripe trousers.
The bridesmaids wore gorgeous Tiffany Blue full length gown with a jewelled halter neckline.
The reception was held in the beautiful Navo Restaurant, we kept the decor simple but keeping in the Tiffany blue theme.
When we asked Kiara what her favourite part of the day was she couldn’t choose just one! ‘So hard to decide. 1. Having my closest friends and family there in this amazing location on the best day of my life. 2. The excitement the day before and after. 3. Waking up the morning of and taking in where I was and what I was going to do that day. 4. The sun setting in the background during the speeches and looking around at everyone in this amazing pink light from the sunset and having a moment of: Oh my god, this is my wedding!!
Kiara and Antony were so impressed with the level of service they received from their wedding suppliers and by the excellent service by the Intercontinental ‘we were treated like royalty!’
We asked Kiara if she would advise couples planning a destination wedding to hire a wedding planner and she answered ‘Absolutely. Worth every penny. The saving in time and stress and worry made the additional expense of a Wedding Planner totally worth it. Through the Facbeook pages you often hear brides complain about Resorts and Suppliers not getting back to them. Chelsea would respond to me even if it was to say, am chasing them up again, still haven’t heard’.
Thank you to Stu and Malia (www.maliajohnson.com) for the beautiful photos.
When Kylie and Ian were planning their wedding, they decided to turn their special day into a family holiday for everyone that would create wonderful life long memories of this very special time. What better place to do this than Fiji!
Kylie and Ian decided very early on in the planning stages that they needed help and guidance from someone who knew exactly what was needed to organise a wedding in Fiji. That’s where we came in. We helped Kylie and Ian create the most beautiful memories on their wedding day, with the Intercontinental Fiji Golf Resort & Spa providing the perfect backdrop.
In the days leading up to the wedding the bridal party and their guests enjoyed everything the resort had to offer including snorkelling, fishing and swimming. What a way to begin the festivities!
When the wedding day arrived, Kylie looked stunning in her ‘Violet’ gown designed by Maggie Sottero.
The junior bridesmaids looked so pretty in their dresses from Myer.
Kylie’s flowers were artificial as she was unable to get the types of flowers and colours to match in with her theme, this is a great option if you do not want tropical flowers and worth some consideration.
The groom wore classic grey suit pants and vest with an ivory shirt and tie.
The photos from the day show just how beautiful the celebrations were and when we asked Kylie what the highlight of her wedding day was and if she would have changed anything she responded ‘The highlight was having the most important people in our lives celebrating with us and no, I wouldn’t have changed a thing!’.
Due to the windy weather Kylie moved the reception to the water court which is a really beautiful wet wether option at the InerContinental. It is still outdoors however has a full roof and beautiful water court in the middle which is a great spot to have the fire dancers do there thing.
The 4ft LOVE sign was actually Kylie’s idea, and as this was not available in Fiji our amazing friends at Grace Creation had this made for her. How beautiful is this all lit up, a great backdrop and prop for photos.
The days after the wedding were spent exactly like the days before, relaxing and enjoying the resort while having their nearest and dearest with them before heading off to Hawaii for their honeymoon.
The very last question we had for Kylie and Ian was what advice would you give to couples planning a wedding in Fiji and all they had to say was ‘Call Chelsea!’.
Kylie and Ian certainly made some beautiful life long memories for all involved. What an amazing day!
Thanks to Nadi Bay Photography for the wonderful photos from the day.
Thank You Chelsea for the most memorable day of our lives. Everything was amazing, and we couldn’t have done it without your help.
