Weddings

Throw off your shoes and stifling tradition by getting married in the sand at your own private Paradise!

Be it a simple beach wedding for you and your partner at sunset or a whole extravaganza including exclusive booking for the entire resort, a dramatic arrival by the bride or groom from a neighbouring island and a grand wedding feast, anything you can dream of we can arrange.

Matava Wedding on private beach in Fiji

At Matava you and your guests will be treated to a wedding (or re-commitment ceremony) like no other.

And best of all, Matava is exclusive, in the most pristine, stunningly beautiful and romantic location. Even though we’ve hosted many weddings there is virtually no chance that any of your friends have been married here!

Your wedding will be truly unique.

Celebrants

We have relationships with non-denominational and religious celebrants who can not only legally marry you at Matava, or simply help you exchange renewal vows or perform a commitment ceremony if that’s your heart’s desire, but also make sure your day is unique, special and romantic.

Photography

We work with local photographers so that you can choose the best one for your particular needs. We have professional photographers that can fly out and cover your event.

Alternatively our owners and staff are just as happy to assist with taking some photos for you at no extra charge.

Flowers

From simple to sophisticated, from elegant to outrageous, our staff will select your favourite local tropical blooms and hand make garlands and flower arrangements for your special day.

Cakes

Whatever your heart’s desire—we‘ll make sure you not only have your cake, you want to eat it too! Our chefs can whip up a delicacy of your choice and happy to take specific requests! If you want the whole 9 yards we can organise a cake from the mainland to suit your budget.

Ceremony Sites

Always imagined getting married on a beach with the sand in your toes and the wind blowing through your veil?

Matava offers couples the opportunity to marry in the ultimate of wedding chapels… A remote white sandy beach overlooked by rainforest covered hills, waving coconut palms and views out over coral lagoons and the Great Astrolabe barrier reef.

Just let us know, we’d love to set it up.
