Port Vila, Vanuatu (PressExposure) March 04, 2009 -- Cook Islands want to grab a larger piece of the South Pacific tourist pie. They recently put out a press release, making false claims "The Cook Islands is the ultimate wedding and honeymoon destination, as unlike other South Pacific countries which require a 30 day wait, it allows couples to marry after only three days in the region. For those who can't wait that long, a small fee can even be paid to waiver the residency requirement. The process could not be simpler, and the only paperwork required can be done in just half an hour once there".
Marriage laws are the same in the tropical island of Vanuatu, as they are in the Cook Islands. Even a couple arriving by cruise ship can get a 'one day' exemption to lodge their paper work for a wedding. Not only are there numerous accommodation deals, the airlines are providing cheap airfares.
You have numerous choices, such as getting married on a private pier at Seachange Lodge, a boutique resort, or you could opt for a large wedding, with all the trimmings, at one of the big resorts like Iririki Island, Le Meridien, or Le Lagon. You could choose to fly to Tanna and get married on the lip of the active volcano, Mt Yassur, or maybe might prefer a deep sea fishing wedding, or deep sea diving wedding. The marriage celebrant could tie the knot on board the boat, then you take a dive afterwards. After all isn't marriage rather like going diving? Off into the deep blue and unknown yonder. You could even have a custom wedding and possibly witness a pig killing ceremony.
There are numerous great options for arranging your wedding details, as well as any outer island trip, through companies such as Hotels-Vanuatu. You will find Silvana and John delightful and only too happy to guide you through all arrangements.
The great news is that your wedding can be truly different, particularly in the tropical islands of Vanuatu, named not only the Happiest Country on Earth, but it is in the South Pacific, the dream holiday destination of the world.
