“Off The Beaten Path Wedding – Mandy & Trent”

What made you choose Fiji as your destination wedding location? We had never been overseas before and we had seen a few weddings done over there that were amazing so we thought ‘why not?’.

Can you tell us a bit about the day through your eyes: Once the rain stopped it was pretty relaxed. Before that I was pretty upset the only day it rained during our trip was our wedding day! But it turned out to be beautiful and we all had a lot of fun.

What were you’re favourite moment/s of the day: Seeing everyone dresses up and enjoying the day with our close friends and family rather than a big impersonal wedding, getting our Portrait photos done at the fort was probably my favourite part of the day as it was the first time we left the resort and it was just such an amazing place to go. I could have stayed and looked at the view all day I would love to go back there. Also we had fire dancers at our reception which was pretty amazing!

Is there any advice you’d like to give future brides in preparation for their big day: Be sure to involve your future husband, even if you think he wont care. The day is for both of you. Get organised early so you can sit back and chill knowing its all taken care of.

Any special thanks or mentions you’d like to make: Our family and friends for making the trip, The outrigger for making the best day for us, seriously these guys were amazing and know everything there is to know! Jennifer Reagan and white runway for our dresses and of course ‘Kama Catch Me’ not only for giving us some amazing photos but also being so easy to get along with and taking us off the beaten path for an experience of a life time!
