Tahitian Wedding at Vahine Island

A wedding on Vahine Island is an exclusive experience that involves the whole island and resort. Decorations, the entire staff is part of this special moment that is yours. Vahine is a unique place, a part of the true heart of Polynesia and very different from what you find in bigger islands or hotels. The whole island is yours

We want to thank the first two couples who insisted on having their weddings on Vahine island, Sandra & Bernard and Barbara & Loic.

 


Proud of their traditions, Polynesian people offer to visitors many of their ancestors’ customs, modernized but still alive (tattoos, dances & legendary songs). Among these, the Polynesian wedding attracts more and more foreigners from all around the world. The actor Dustin Hoffmann, for example, made a dream come true here in Tahiti in 1995.

 

A Tahitian ceremony is always enchanting, to exchange vows, celebrate an anniversary or promise yourself to your loved one. It is always a vivid memory thanks to the gorgeous white sand beaches, the colours of the lagoon, the swaying palms, floral decorations, rhythmic musicians and the natural smile of Polynesian people. It is also a nice way to discover the population and its way of living.

 

The Tahitian wedding at Vahine Island is a local ceremony, conducted by a Tahitian celebrant and following the ancestor’s commitments from the Maohi people. It starts with the arrival of the groom and the bride in outriggers. A wedding certificate will be delivered on a “Tapa” made of breadfruit skin.

 


The Polynesian government voted a law last April to authorize foreign citizens to get married legally in Polynesia without residency. More information on request.

Due to our small size, we organize weddings according to our occupancy. Ceremonies can be performed on Sundays only.
