Kimberley & Michael’s Wedding Day
Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort
15 May 2017
Dream Wedding Package
IDFH: Why did you choose Outrigger Fiji as your wedding location?
Kimberley: Michael and I visited the Outrigger the year prior to our wedding and fell in love with the resort and its staff. For our wedding we wanted somewhere that showed off Fiji’s amazing scenery, but also provided us privacy, which is why we loved the Buri Ni Loloma Chapel at the Outrigger.
The resort is perfect for families which was a big plus as we have two young children and a number of families attending our wedding.
Outrigger is a beautiful resort with amazing staff. We couldn’t fault it.
IDFH: Describe your wedding day and how it unfolded.
Kimberley: Our wedding day started off perfectly. The weather was a bit hot and humid and it rained in the morning, but despite that, we were enjoying all the preparations with our family and friends.
Things went south when it came time to put on my dress. The zipper broke away form the lining of the dress which meant it would only zip half-way up! Nothing would get it to go any further and eventually the zip completely broke off. It was a horrible feeling. The amazing staff at Outrigger 100% saved our wedding.
The wedding coordinator was running around frantically trying to help and eventually got a hold of their head butler who managed to sew me into my dress!
I can’t thank these guys enough. Without them I would have been wearing the robe from the room to my wedding!
After all the drama we were close to an hour and half late, leaving Michael and our guests at the chapel wondering if I had done a runner!
Once we arrived, our ceremony was short and sweet (perfect!).
As I was so late to the chapel, it meant we missed our sunset wedding shoot with Laurence from Nadi Bay Photography. But this amazing man came back in his own time the next day to take us out to some other locations so we could get our sunset photos. Laurence is another person that went above and beyond to give us our dream wedding and we can’t thank him enough.
IDFH: Who did you wear?
Kimberley: My dress was custom made by Nancy Khau. Michael’s jacket & pants were from H&M and his shirt Connor.
