We just wanted to thank you properly for organising our wedding in paradise. The service you provided was truly invaluable in making our day exactly the way we wanted it, even though we just had a small ceremony we never felt any less important than the big events that were seemingly happening all around the island at the same time.
Fiona you are fabulous and you went above and beyond for us which we truly appreciated, you truly made our day perfect.
Again ladies thank you so much for making our small intimate ceremony absolutely perfect in every way. So incredibly happy! It truly was beyond our expectations.
Warmest regards, Mr and Mrs Prime xxx

I just wanted to email now that I have settled back into married (and normal!) life!
I wanted to thank you and Fiona for your hard work in making our dream wedding a reality. We wanted something beautiful, fun, casual and memorable and you managed to make all of that and more come to life. Every step of the way you were there to help me with my millions of questions and problems. My wedding day was such a calm day, I was able to relax and have so much fun knowing that everything would be in your very capable hands and the wedding was more than I even imagined!!
Thank you for all of your patience, support and guidance. Hopefully we can come back to the rock to do a renewal in a few years!
Thank you again
Leah and Brett Nangle!

To dear Fiona and Andrea – How can we thank you enough! Our March beach wedding was relaxed, full of love and just perfect and we have you both to thank for that.
Although our wedding consisted of only my husband and I, our 22 month old son and my Mum, enlisting Wedded Bliss to help plan our wedding was the best move we made. Prior to our arrival, Andrea promptly responded to my countless emails and offered help and advice graciously. Once in Rarotonga, nothing was too much for the beautiful duo. To name but a few instances, we were loaned a floor fan for our rented accommodation during a heat wave, the time of our wedding was put back an hour to allow for the heat of the day to dissipate, the wedding flowers were exquisite and my head ei was expertly created as requested from a photo of an ei that my sister wore when she married more than 30 years ago, my husband’s traditional ei was created on an outer island, flown in by plane then hand delivered to our wedding venue, Fiona stood in as our second witness and brought her gorgeous son to keep our toddler entertained and when it was discovered less than 30 minutes to countdown that flower petals for our toddler to scatter on the beach had been waylaid, Fiona organised petals from nowhere in addition to raking the beach, setting the flower arch in place, organising the sound system and all the last minute preparations before our arrival.
The service providers that the girls have chosen complement their business beautifully. Our celebrant Mi’i met with us twice before our wedding and personally designed a beautiful ceremony involving my Mum and incorporating my dear Dad who had passed away only 6 weeks prior. My hair stylist and make-up artist Jane gave me a beautiful natural hair style and make up application which was perfect considering our wedding consisted of just us. Our photographer Ine went above and beyond her job description and took the most incredibly beautiful photos that we cherish and love looking at every day.
I cannot speak more highly of Andrea, Fiona and their team of professionals and I would not hesitate to recommend them to any friends and family planning a future wedding in Rarotonga. Thank you girls. We are so grateful to you both for making our special day amazing.
Our love always, Cath, Ants and Louis xo

Fiona and Andrea,
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for making our dream wedding a reality! What an incredible time we had in Rarotonga… and the wedding day itself… WOW! Suffice it to say that our expectations were well and truly exceeded.
Andrea, you are a legend! From the very first email, Tim and I knew we were in good hands and were immediately able to relax and enjoy the wedding planning process. We are so grateful for your suggestion to book our accommodation, wedding and reception at the Moana Sands Hotel. What a breath-taking location! And the staff were so incredibly accommodating and kind! We are already having withdrawals and are planning our return journey 🙂
Fiona, you coordinated our day with such calm professionalism -everything ran so seamlessly! The marquee looked incredible as did the ceremony set up. The flowers, food and cake blew us away! The fire dancing was a fabulous addition to our reception and JK did such a wonderful job at the ceremony.
Ine and Juhz from Angle Photography were a great choice- they were so friendly and fun to work with- we can’t wait to see our photos! And Jayne and Hannah from the Pacific Village Salon made me and my bridesmaids feel like princesses!
We will be gushing about our experience for years to come!
Lots of love,
Nadine and Tim xxx
Kris and Vai – May 2015
I actually don’t know where to start when it comes to saying thank you, without getting teary (shut up! lol) so I’ll keep it short…
Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding everything Vai and I dreamt off. From the first email and phone call 2years prior, to the last few days in Raro, you always had our best interests at heart. You made things so easy and completely stress free.
Vai and I were always going to be getting married in Raro but we were after something different and Wedded Bliss delivered 200%. We have no issue what so ever telling everyone to get married in paradise and how incredible you and Fiona are. Our guests have told us that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to and we did a great job, but the first thing I say back is we had the vision but Andrea was the one who actually made it happen! Not in a million years could we have done it without your help, advice, eye for detail and amazing ability to see other people’s ideas and turn them in to reality.
You and your business are a true asset to Rarotonga, Rarotongan tourism and the wedding industry.
Now I am just getting all gushy!
Thanks Andrea- you’re a legend!
Love Kris and Vai xx
Nikita and Dave – May 2015
I have been very impressed with the email correspondence with you, you always replied in a timely manner and I felt completely stress free.
Dave and I absolutely loved The Edgewater, it was convenient and central and worked out perfect for our guests. The food was delicious and the staff were wonderful for us. Jane from Pacific Village Salon was absolutely wonderful, she was very professional and at the same time she was comfortable that you could have a good laugh with her. Ine from Angle Photo & Video was awesome, I absolutely love her photos. I felt completely relaxed with her and I am truly impressed with the photo book and photos.
Fiona did an excellent job with the wedding, I felt completely at ease for the whole day. I have had comments from family members advising that they loved how relaxed our wedding was and it was one of their most enjoyable weddings that they’ve attended.
I am so happy I went through Wedded Bliss, I recommend you guys to everyone. I am so happy that my first time going to Rarotonga has given me such wonderful memories. My family are already looking at flights to head back 😊
Thank you again,
Nikita Billing 😃

Hi Andrea and Fiona,
It’s only been a week since our wedding but I really didn’t want to delay telling you how much we appreciate everything you put into our special day. When I first got in contact with you two years ago I felt overwhelmed with the thought of planning a wedding. Pregnant at the time and with a toddler, I knew I couldn’t put the time in on my own. A quick Google search and I came across Wedded Bliss and thought I would flick you an email.
Best. Decision. Ever.
From the first email Andrea was friendly, responsive and willing to answer my many questions. As an obsessive organiser there was no shortage of me emailing to ask things. Never once did a question seem too many or a problem to answer. At times I felt it was too easy, I mean how could someone possibly be planning my wedding with such minimal fuss?? But it’s very easy to see why, weddings is what they do! The lead up to our big day was stress free and seamless. Our minds were completely at ease. Upon arrival in Rarotonga we were introduced to the lovely Fiona. To continue on with what is the Wedded Bliss way, she was absolutely lovely. Easy to deal with and again nothing a problem. She was excellent at making sure everything was taken care of and a real delight to deal with.
Our wedding day was truly beyond our wildest dreams. I can honestly say there is not one single thing about our day I would change. The set up was stunning. And with everything being done for us we could focus on what we were meant to, each other.
It’s fair to say people will be sick of me saying get married In Rarotonga through wedded bliss already! But I really can’t thank you both enough. Everyone has spoken about what a lovely day it was and Jim and I credit You for this.
Fiona thanks so much for your smiling face when we arrived feeling a little nervous on the island. Andrea I am going to miss your emails for sure.
Lots of love from us
Kristy and Jim
