Real Fiji Weddings: Amanda & Jairek’s Fiji Paradise Wedding

It’s no question that Namale is one of the most romantic places on earth; with our luxuriously appointed bures & villas, complete seclusion, relaxing spa and ultimate dining experiences Namale was practically built with couples and romance in mind.

We’re honored to have hosted the wedding of Amanda & Jairek, an absolutely lovely couple filled with so much excitement & love for each other…and Namale!

Not only was their wedding beautiful but they also were our very first on site underwater photo shoot, which we highly suggest to all of our upcoming wedding couples, producing some pretty amazing photos!

Following their departure Amanda & Jairek wrote a kind note about their experience here at Namale:


I’m so excited to share that on September 17, 2014 I married the love of my life, Amanda 🙂

Our wedding week was filled with an abundance of love and celebration! Shared with our closest friends and family from all around the world (including our Fiji family from the local villages), our wedding was more than we could have ever imagined!

We are still trying to take in last week and trying to find the words that can even come close to describing how special/magical/beautiful it was!

Here are a few of our favorite moments of the week…

1.The look on Amanda’s face as she was being carried in and escorted down the aisle by 6 Fijian Warriors and her dad!

2. The most amazing reception created by the team at Namale. We could feel all of the heart, soul and love they poured into creating it for us.

3. The smiles, tears, laughter and joy that filled the conversations all through-out the week

4. A surprise “Bachelor Party” fitness challenge at Namale by all the guys

5. Watching my wife leap off the back of the Namale dive boat (in her wedding dress!!!!) to take some amazing photos.

6. Watching the stress from traveling 10-20+ hours, immediately be replaced with huge smiles, and bliss as all our guests were greeted by the amazing team here at Namale.

7. All of the love, comments, support and messages from friends and family around the world congratulating us and sending their best wishes!

8. Our wedding ceremony on the beach, celebrating our vows with our closest friends and family!

We celebrate these amazing moments in life here in Fiji at the beautiful Namale Resort & Spa.
