Wedding tourism continues to grow. Including from China now.
Six couple arrived in the country from China on Wednesday to exchange their vows today at the Shangri-La’s Fijian Resort and Spa on Yanuca Island, Coral Coast.
President of the Shanghai Wedding Trade Association who is also the secretary general of Rose Wedding Formalities, Frank Cao, said: “The living standards of Chinese people are growing day by day and it is easy for us to travel to Fiji.”
Mr Cao said this is like a promotion of Fiji to China in terms of tourism industry and it is easier for Chinese people to come Fiji than the other places because of the open visa policy.
“This is the first we have come to Fiji to host such activities so we want to take these experiences back to China so they know how beautiful the country is and come and visit Fiji as well,” he said.
Mr Cao said destination weddings were becoming a fashion in China now.
“These six couples come here to be models and they will take photos and do videos and it will be taken back to China because Chinese newlyweds love taking photos,” he said.

“We wish to promote cultural communications between the two countries, which first starts with wedding,” Mr Cao saod.
“So this year we operate a company which aim to promote cultural communications between Fiji and China.
“In other countries, we promote wedding with the organisation of Rose Wedding Committee.”

Figures soarw
Tourism Fiji Global Public Relations manager, Patricia Mallam, said the figures for the wedding market have been soaring.
She said: “Weddings is a key niche that Tourism Fiji markets rigorously across our source markets throughout the year.
“We want would-be couples to know that Fiji is more than just an idyllic destination, but also caters for all their wedding needs. Definitely much more than just sun and sandy beaches.”
Ms Mallam added that our commitment to grow tourism in this area is evident as we are gearing up for the Tourism Fiji Wedding Show in March.
She said: “This will be the first consumer wedding show aimed at showcasing what Fiji has to offer to wedding parties; from make-up artists to photographers to hens and bucks party planners,” she said.
