Weddings at Big Island

Weddings from £1,000

Overview

Big Island, also known as The Island of Hawaii, is the largest of the Hawaii archipelago, and is an incredibly gorgeous, special wedding destination. This stunning island is home to an abundance of stunning scenery, and is popular for it’s fantastic volcanic scenery, with the Volcanoes National Park being one of this exotic island’s highlights.

Larger than all other islands in Hawaii combined, Big Island offers some of the most sought-for, spectacular natural Hawaiian beauty. There’s a selection of beach venues to choose from; the Kona Beaches are incredibly beautiful and are set north of Kailua-Kona Town, offering powdery white sands, clear turquoise waters and majestic black stones tucked into the beach, whilst the Hilo Beaches are more secluded and intimate, featuring small coves of silky sand and glistening azure sea.

We feature two wedding packages for this particular venue; our Classic Wedding offers a personalised itinerary for the special day, a personal wedding coordinator, an island welcome amenity, seasonal lei to exchange during the ceremony and beautiful island flowers to decorate your chosen venue. If you wish take your wedding to the next level, we think our Premier Wedding is a wonderful option, treating you both to a sparkling cider toast on the beach, a spectacular sand ceremony and a professional photographer to capture the magic of this incredible island.

More Information

Hawaii Island is the largest of the islands in the Hawaii archipelago, and to avoid confusion with the name of the state, it is almost always referred to as the ‘Big Island’. The nickname is deserved – it’s bigger than all of the other islands of Hawaii combined and to those going in search of the legendary scenery of the 50th state, it might have the most typical natural Hawaiian beauty.

Additional Information

We would recommend a minimum 4 night stay in Hawaii and be in on island at least 2 days before your wedding.  At least 24 hours before your wedding day you need to obtain your marriage licence.  This is a very simple process which you can complete as a couple together.  You must allow for a full 24 hours to pass from obtaining the licence before you can get married. The cost of your licence is not included in your wedding package.  The cost of the wedding licence is $65.  Transportation to/from the licence office is not included.  You must both apply in person to the Marriage Licence Agent in Oahu, however this is a very simple and easy process and your Hawaiian wedding coordinator will go through all these details in your pre-wedding meeting when you arrive.
