Get Married in Bora Bora

Why only honeymoon in Bora Bora when there is no more romantic setting in the world for a destination wedding ceremony?

It’s now possible for citizens of the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and most European countries to legally marry in Bora Bora, which means there’s no reason not to celebrate the most important day of your life on this enchanting island. Legal wedding ceremonies are conducted at the City Hall in Vaitape.

Planning a destination wedding in Bora Bora is even easier than you might think. Most resorts offer convenient inclusive packages, which cover everything from flowers, wedding cake, spa treatments, canoe transportation, make-up application, hair styling, Tahitian dancers, photography, wedding planner and more. These packages range from basic to elaborate, and allow couples to choose an exotic Polynesian-style ceremony or a traditional Western wedding. Get married on a private beach, aboard a catamaran, against the backdrop of Mount Otemanu, in a Polynesian wedding chapel, or beneath a gazebo decorated with tropical flowers. Ditch the traditional car, and instead ride a jet ski off into the sunset after the ceremony. Elope for an intimate ceremony, or take advantage of group discounts and plan a big celebration that includes all your friends and family.

Reception venues range from casual beachside settings to elegant air-conditioned restaurants. Enjoy an exclusive cocktail reception with friends and family sipping champagne and tasting delicious canapés. Opt for a customised wedding dinner at one of the signature dinning venues or on a private area of the beach, choose an international menu or one that showcases Bora Bora’s delicious traditional dishes. And for a truly memorable reception add a traditional Polynesian show, live music and fully customised firework display over the lagoon.

Envision an intimate wedding celebration for two with a candlelight dinner on the beach, followed by a luxury boat cruise to enjoy your wedding cake and champagne under the stars.

Plan an unforgettable wedding and honeymoon, all in one! You can count on Bora Bora’s down-to-earth locals to make every aspect of your wedding special with their trademark warmth and hospitality. Bora Bora’s tropical splendour promises a one of a kind wedding celebration and romantic honeymoon.

Be inspired by stunning real weddings in paradise and make your day unique and memorable!
