Inspiration for your wedding or vow renewal ceremony

Are you thinking of tying (or re-tying) the knot? The Hawaiian Islands is one of the best places in the world to celebrate your wedding or vow renewal. Why? Because there are so many unique, beautiful and interesting places to get married or renew your vows. From barefoot tiki bars to secluded beaches, the Hawaiian Islands have the perfect place for your ceremony. Read on to find out about some of our favourite spots.

1. Private Waterfall Wedding

If the thought of arriving at your wedding in a chopper appeals to you, why not charter a helicopter and take your celebrant and witnesses with you to a totally remote waterfall location. Many of the waterfalls in The Hawaiian Island are only accessible by helicopter so you can be assured of total privacy in your own slice of paradise.
