2021 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Want someone with an intimate knowledge of the Islands of Tahiti? Someone who has the clout to get you the very best services and special perks?

Wedding Officiant in Tahiti - Moorea | Life-Cycle Wedding Celebrant :

If you are looking at having a simple yet meaningful celebratory ceremony while in Tahiti, I'd love to speak with you.

I am a Certified Life-Cycle Wedding Celebrant, the first ever in the Islands of Tahiti.

That means that I'll develop and write a personalized ceremony that recognizes your unique personalities, and that makes your vision of the ceremony come to life.

I am based on Tahiti's sister island of Moorea, but am available to travel anywhere in the Islands of Tahiti to perform your wedding ceremony (or renewal of vows).

Wedding Planner in Tahiti - Moorea :

As a Certified Wedding & Event Planner in the Islands of Tahiti, I can also take care of all that is related to your destination wedding in Tahiti.

I exclusively offer full service planning packages (incl. legal weddings, traditional Polynesian ceremonies, and Western style ceremonies developed by myself as the Celebrant) to help every couple's dreams come true with minimal amount of stress and frustration that often comes with planning a wedding from afar.

I do specialize in planning small and intimate weddings in Tahiti that combine a personal experience with striking landscapes and untouched beauty, by connecting my international couples to great vendors and creating unique heartfelt ceremonies.

Located halfway between California and Australia, the Islands of Tahiti are under 8 hours (nonstop flight) from Los Angeles, CA, and a real hidden paradise… just think about reconnecting and togetherizing… together alone !

As your Destination Wedding Planner in Tahiti - Moorea, I will make it happen, because I know what it takes.

    Our dream elopement!

    We just got back from our elopement trip to French Polynesia and Nelly was absolutely wonderful all around! Couldn't have done it without her! She is very kind, professional, extremely attentive to details and made sure our special day was everything we envisioned to the finest details! During the process we had to adjust many things due to Covid situation & change of personal preferences and she was very flexible, supportive and responsive at all times! Nelly, thank you so much for making our dream come true! One day we will be back for vow renewal ceremony :)

    Thanks a million Anya for choosing our beautiful island to hold your elopement ceremony, and the entire team wishes you and Thad all the very best! Nelly

    A Love Story Come True!

    After our wedding in Hawaii had to be moved due to closures, we began our search for a new location and then most importantly a new ceremony officiant. After making a decision to go to Moorea we found Nelly and we immediately were impressed by her punctuality and genuine attention to detail. Her intuition and understanding of what we were looking for made our wedding day plans come to life and well exceeded our expectations. Through a wonderful introductory online Skype meeting and some of the best email communication we have ever had in our wedding planning, Nelly won our trust and hearts instantly. She made us feel like we were the only couple to be married in the world. Nelly coordinated with our photographers, arranged all the florals, and coordinated hair and makeup professionals to come to our room at our resort. Through all of this, all of the little “Bride wedding day mini-panics” were handled with grace and love. Nelly’s connections for bridal hair and makeup were phenomenal, professional and never were in a rush or judgmental of hair and makeup choices. We had planned a second day for an adventure photoshoot after the wedding on a cute little local catamaran as well and she even coordinated the hair and makeup stylists to come very early in the morning before we set sail for the day. Nelly also handled everything for our Wedding night dinner with a romantic beachside dinner under the stairs with all the candles and florals a couple could ask for. Although the restaurant was closed on that particular day, Nelly arranged for the Chef to come in and prepare us a wonderful personalized menu for our group of four. She even knew our flight schedule into Moorea and sent us a welcome email, and a cute little wedding day kit before we left! Nelly shared in our excitement of the day and our adventurous vision of our day. She was truly instrumental in our love story. We can’t thank you enough!!

    Amazing experience with Nelly! We highly recommend her!

    Nelly took care of every last detail for us, including the most delicious, private dinner on the sand to celebrate our perfect day in Mo’orea. It was everything we were hoping it would be, and more! Thank you again, Nelly, for a beautiful wedding!
