TRADITIONAL BEACH CEREMONY:
It takes place on a white sandy beach, covered by colorful flowers and coconut palms, with a view on the famous Mount Otemanu rising, majestically across the blue crystal waters of the lagoon.
You will be dressed up for the ceremony with white pareos, in the privacy of your villa, by one of our dancers.
An outrigger canoe, specially decorated for the occasion, will pick you up from the private pontoon of your villa, and take you to the place of the ceremony, where the Master of Ceremony, dancers and musicians await you.
The priest unifies the couple in the pure Polynesian tradition in the Tahitian language.
The priest joins the couple's hands with a piece of “niau”, a coconut leaf, and blesses them by pouring seawater as a sign of unity.
He then gives to the couple flower necklaces & crowns, and they exchange the flowers as they exchange their vows.
They are then baptized with their Polynesian names and given a wedding certificate.
The couple is then introduced to Polynesian dancing, and dancers surround the couple with the traditional "Tifaifai" (Polynesian wedding quilt), which symbolizes their union.
They will be seated on a comfortable canapé and they will enjoy a Polynesian show dedicated to them while they drink a punch served in a real coconut.
At the end of the show the couple will be escorted to the traditional pirogue and the paddle man will bring them back to their villa specially prepared for the occasion with romantic ambiance: A bed of flowers and a table on the terrace with a special decoration where they will enjoy a wedding cake and a bottle of champagne.
