Aitutaki Lagoon Weddings with The Queen - The Perfect Setting for your Wedding

Some visitors have quite lavish affairs at one of our Resort Hotels, complete with many overseas guests and extensive receptions, whilst others wish for simple ceremonies with little fuss - opting for one of the beautiful settings our island can offer.

Queen Manarangi Tutai offers simple, but romantic and memorable wedding ceremonies for overseas visitors in this exquisite part of our Polynesian world.

The  pictures on this page show various weddings that the Queen has arranged and these images speak for themselves. Each wedding is unique, and no two are exactly the same.

For Pricing please contact us. We can cater for a maximum of 6 persons in the wedding party.

We will make the following arrangements for you :

  • We will arrange for a  marriage licence. You will provide us with the originals or certified copies of your birth certificates, your passports and if you have been married previously, your divorce papers. If a widow or a widower you need to provide us with  a certified copy of the death certificate of your deceased spouse. We will complete the forms, which you will sign. We will need one week's notice to arrange this.

  • We will transport the wedding party across the lagoon on our boat "Ida Maud" to the island setting where the wedding will take place.

  • We will arrange for either a Minister of Religion or a Justice of the Peace to conduct the wedding ceremony. His or her fee is included in the price.

  • We will provide flowers - head ei and long ei for the bride and groom plus the bridal bouquet.

  • We will construct the bridal wedding arch  on the beach and decorate it with flowers.

  • We can if requested  provide a simple picnic style  wedding breakfast after the ceremony out on the lagoon island beach where you are married. Ask us for pricing.

  • We will provide 1 x bottle of sparkling white wine for the wedding toast

  • We will provide the two witnesses as prescribed by law.

        Please note that not included are:

  • A band, dancers,  musicians or singers. These can be arranged on a small scale but at additional cost.

  • Alcoholic drinks in addition to the bottle of wine that we will provide.

  • Photography. If you require the services of a professional photographer, then this can be arranged. Please understand that this is costly. An option is for you to bring your own digital camera to make a record of your day. We will also do our best with taking snapshots for you with our own digital camera but the results are not guaranteed!

Enjoy the images on this page and contact us if we can be of any further assistance.
