Introducing our NEW Fiji Weddings Website
Bula and Lolomas!
We’re excited to announce our latest online addition – The Castaway Fiji Weddings Website. The aim is to help our wedding couples make the right decisions for their special day. It includes everything you need to know about getting married in the Fiji Islands plus other helpful information including a Fiji wedding services listing for hair and makeup, photographers and videographers.
The new website is still attached to our main website as a ‘subdomain’. The URL address is http://www.weddings.castawayfiji.com
It is mobile friendly – check it out on your iphones!
This supersedes our previous weddings guide – the downloadable PDF file.
Click the image below to view it. It’s the first release. We aim to add more information and photos as we go. Let us know what you think and feel free to share the lolomas (love) with anyone who might be thinking about getting married in Fiji.
Our wedding on Castaway Island was like a dream come true. The beauty of the island was just magical, and it was the perfect setting for a tropical, relaxed wedding. The Castaway staff really made all the difference though. We were so well looked after, right from the minute we stepped foot on the sand. They were all so personable and did everything in their power to please us and make our wedding everything we ever imagined. They felt like family by the time we left, it was so sad to say goodbye to everyone. Standing there saying our vows in the most beautiful setting we could have ever pictured took our breath away. It was almost like we had to pinch ourselves it was just that amazingly stunning. Our guests had the most memorable time and all said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. They too were so well taken care of by the Castaway family. All we could talk about was when we could all go back to holiday there again! The accommodation, the service, the food, the floral arrangements, the choir, the cake, the table decorations, the wedding co-ordinators were all 5 star. We would recommend Castaway Island as a wedding location to anyone thinking of a small, stress free wedding that they will fondly remember for the rest of their lives.
Special mention to Mandi Forrester-Jones at Small Guide Travel – Mandi recommended the island to us as a location for our wedding. Mandi co-ordinated everything for us, and also for all of our guests – from the travel arrangements to all the wedding details. All we needed to do was get on a plane with the rings and wedding dress! I don’t know what we would have done without her, she was amazing! Thank you so much Mandi, I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to do an island style wedding.

Guest Review – Weddings
We thank Holly Longmuir for writing such a lovely review after her recent wedding here on the Island.
It takes a lot of time to write a thank you so any time we receive such beautiful comments we love to share them here.
Everyone experiences Castaway differently. Here’s Holly’s view of our little island home…
“I/we wanted to send you a few ‘thank you’ notes to pass on:
Lance – WOW – the food was outstanding! What he produced for our group was top quality. How big was that fish!!! If only Dave & I had of been a little less excited we may have eaten more. He may be an Aussie by birth, but he showed us all the kindness of a Fijian. All our guest raved about the quality of the food. Thank you so much to both Lance and his attentive team.
Maria – our babysitter – thanks for the late night’s looking after our precious little Coco. Especially the fact that you worked on your birthday….
Monika – you and the team we’re wonderful to us. No one would have known it was your first wedding reception – it went off without a hitch! Thank you to you and your team for looking after us with such importance and of course for being so lovely.
Merelini – ‘Leni’ – Thank you again for sorting out the Bure’s – what a miracle you pulled off! And you did it all with a huge smile. We can’t thank you enough for the effort you put in. Next time we come back, we promise to behave….. Well, we do love the North side….
The staff/team – For as long as we live, we will remember the energy and love that came from the team when they sang their song and carried in our wedding cake – it blew the roof off!
Everywhere we walked, we were greeted with a “Bula Dave, Holly” and of course a kiss for Coco. I can still hear Emily saying Bula from across the pool… Oh and the ice fight with Vilisi and Trent…. How funny….
We truly felt that all the team were celebrating our wedding with us. They laughed and cried with us. They will be forever remembered in our hearts as sharing our special day. Please pass on how truly thankful we are for their support and friendship.
The band & the choir – We love music, and to have music as a part of our wedding was important to us. The choir sang with their beautiful harmonious voices and then the boys played our song – lovely day. Thank you to them all. We hope that when they play the song for other guests that they’ll remember us fondly and our crazy clan!!!
Aseri – what can we say. When we first arrived we remembered you from our previous years when you worked in kids club. The stand out point for us was your wonderful laugh….. For the first few days we didn’t hear it, after all you are in ‘management now’…. By the end of the week with the antics between you and Trent [the tall one]- your sensational laugh echoed through again. We’ll miss that sound. Your smile is infectious, your laughter contagious. You made our week even more enjoyable by just being around. Sorry again for Trent’s antics….. he he
Laisa – our friend Laisa.
You even stopped the rain!
I hope all your bride’s and groom’s appreciate you as much as we do. I still laugh at the fact that you were more stressed about the weather than I was!
Our wedding was above anything we could have imagined. The lead up was so smooth and ran without incident. The day/night was perfect.
You have a peacefulness that helps to calm those little niggling nerves…. Thank you for putting your heart and soul into our trip.
Thanks to you, our wedding was what dream are made of.
All our group want to come back next year – perhaps we can have another party to celebrate our 1 year anniversary…..”
Holly & Dave Longmuir
