Introduction to Weddings in Bora Bora

Bora Bora weddings are an unforgettable experience, embroiled in luxury, class and stunning scenery. Bora Bora is an island in the French Polynesian archipelago that is the Society Islands. The French Polynesia islands cover more than 1 million square miles, with only 1359 square miles of land across 118 islands. To put that into context, that is equivalent to the county of Cornwall being split up in 118 pieces and spread over an area the same size as Europe – that should give you an idea of how peaceful, remote and tranquil Bora Bora is!

Remote though it is, Bora Bora’s hotels and wedding venues all boast an extensive list of amenities and facilities which include international dining options, spas, kayaks, shark feeding, scuba diving, over-water hot tubs, private beaches and direct lagoon access from your hotel room. Crystal clear blue waters, bright white sandy beaches and undimmed skies as far as the eye can see make Bora Bora the ultimate backdrop for any wedding. Once you’ve looked at pictures of Bora Bora weddings, you won’t want to get married anywhere else – it really is a romantic idyll.

Important Information about weddings in Bora Bora 

We advise that you spend a minimum of 2-3 days in Bora Bora before your wedding due to the long flight time; this should give you plenty of time to recover from your jet lag and enjoy your big day!

The couple will both need to provide copies of the following documents before the wedding (and also take them upon travel):

  • A valid, 10 year UK passport that does not expire within 6 months of your return to the UK.
  • A completed ‘Marriage of Foreign Citizens in the French Polynesia’ form. Our wedding planners will advise you on the details of this document.
  • A copy of both birth certificates of the couple, issued no less than 6 months before the date of your wedding.
  • A certificate of ‘Non-Marriage Status’.
  • A proof of residency for the couple.

All of the above documents must be certified by the French consulate and translated into French.

Copies of all the above documents must be supplied before your wedding day and original copies taken with you to Bora Bora.
