Your wedding guide – Tahiti

Things you need to know about getting married in Tahiti.

With 118 islands and atolls and five main island groups, Tahiti,  which is the main island of French Polynesia, is an area of diverse and incredible scenery – both above and below water! Tahiti and her islands rightly deserve the reputation as one of the world’s most romantic destinations, making it ideal for a Tahiti wedding or honeymoon.

From the beautiful and sensual island of Bora Bora, to the main island of Tahiti with its lush mountains and interesting history, through to the pristine beaches (which have tempted many a bride to wed barefoot!) of Moorea, or the untamed beauty of Huahine.

Legalities

Marriage cannot be celebrated on Sundays or public holidays. You must submit an application at least one month and 10 days prior to the intended civil ceremony. Civil ceremonies are conducted in the local town hall. You can also request a traditional non-legal Tahitian wedding or renewal of vows ceremony after the civil ceremony.

Your marriage application must include birth certificates (including a French translation), proof of residence in your home country and passports. Medical certificates may also be required.
