Jade, from Australia, Allen, from New Zealand chose the Outrigger Fiji to get married. It was a full day with an early start and a late end : a real party! The Tototka hair and make up team did a fabulous job all morning with Jade and her three daughters, who she decided were her bridesmaids. The complicity between them all was really touching.
The ceremony at the chapel on the top of the Outrigger hill was very moving. It was followed with a bridal party photoshoot above the chapel as well as down at the beach.
The reception was a beautiful demonstration of an open-minded crowd. Allen side being from Maori descendants opened the ceremony with a powerful aka dance. Jade and Allen got offered a Jade stone from Aoteroa as a wedding gift. The Fijians also did their part and entertained with some energising dancing and a fire show. The guests danced, all generations mixed.
Finally I am still shivering when I’m thinking about Jade’s speech, when she sang “Happy days”… It was so beautiful!
