“We met in Suva about 16yrs ago at a poetry reading session. It was a whirlwind romance where we dated, got married and had our 3 beautiful girls and in the time it took to raise our girls and build our businesses we never found the time to have a large wedding ceremony. So finally after 16yrs and after much prodding from our girls, we decided to have a wedding which was made even more special because we were able to have our 3 girls involved – Rani, Kiara and Indira. So whilst it was a wedding ceremony, it was also a renewal of our vows and also our 16year wedding anniversary.
We chose Fiji, because I’m from Fiji and all my kids were born in Fiji. My husband is also a Fijian citizen now. And we chose Leleuvia island resort because we are one of the owners of the island resort, and also it’s one of the most beautiful and magical islands in the Pacific where we have shared and created many beautiful memories with our families and friends.”
Why did you choose Zoomfiji for your photography and cinematography?
“I heard Zoom was one of the best in the industry and I was absolutely impressed and just grateful for the attention to detail and professionalism that we received. I wanted it all to be as natural as possible and Zoomfiji captured the mood and the entire vibe in every picture and in every video frame, that is a damn skill so major ups and kudos to Bruce and his team”.
“My hot tip to brides and grooms – Don’t compromise on your photos or videos, opt for the best because it is a memory/souvernir that you can keep and share with your kids and grandkids forever. “
