A South Seas wedding and honeymoon is very popular with visitors to the South Pacific. Rarotonga is a favorite choice both because of its low cost in comparison with French Polynesia or Fiji and its reputation as a romantic destination.
There is a thriving industry on Rarotonga catering to the needs of couples wishing to get married as well as those who require special ceremonies to renew their original marriage vows.
Most hotels and accommodation suppliers either offer their own wedding packages or can arrange for the services of a one-stop wedding specialist to look after all the organisation.
Those who wish to make their own arrangements can do so as long as they are prepared to do a little legwork and telephoning.
Crucial requirements are:-
Marriages performed in the Cook Islands are recognised internationally. However, intending applicants should check with their own countries' marriage licensing authorities for their local requirements concerning marriages.
Churches of most denominations exist in the Cook Islands. They include Roman Catholic, Presbyterian, Congregational, Cook Islands Christian Church, Seventh Day Adventist, Mormon and Ba'hai. The marriage requirements of these will be the same as in other countries.
