Our wedding was fantastic and what dreams are made of!

Everything was sorted for us - right down to just booking flights, so it was stress-free for both, us and our guests. 

The food, venue and staff at the Edgewater Resort were all amazing.

would recommend Tonia to anyone wanting to book an overseas wedding overseas.

Jono and Pip, The Edgewater Resort Rarotonga, April 2019 

Amy & Michael

Our wedding was absolutely beautiful & we are so thrilled with our special day...The whole experience was ‘a breeze’ & stress free & we wouldn’t change a thing. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping make our wedding dream come true! And also thank you for organising our family to be there as well, they all had a fantastic time!

Sarah & Ryan

A massive thank you to Tonia for organizing our guests flights and accommodation, I know they all had an amazing time. Im so happy that we chose to marry in Rarotonga, we actually couldn't have asked for a better day and week there....The people of Rarotonga are so friendly, it is such a lovely relaxing place and I'm so glad that we got to share this with our family and friends.... 



  Janene & Taofia

Janene & Taofia

Thank you to Tonia from Bonvoyage for our stress free Wedding, it was magical and I felt like a princess!

I never would have guessed it would be that easy. Not knowing where to start, that's where Tonia come in. She gave us some ideas, we picked, then she drew it up. We chose to get married in Rarotonga on the beach at the Edgewater Resort.

It was so beautiful with our children and grandson by our sides. It was our first time in Rarotonga  and won't be our last, as we are already planning to go back for our first anniversary. 

So glad I found Tonia, going to tropical Raro to get married was the best thing we've done. And I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to get married overseas.

Janene & Taofia, The Edgewater Resort Rarotonga, July 2016  

Tania and Andrew

Getting married in Rarotonga was the best idea we both ever had. Romantic, Relaxing and Rewarding are the words to describe our day. 

From the moment we arrived in Rarotonga we felt a warm welcome....friendly, helpful people everywhere and the island time kicked in. Everything fell into place and the wedding went to plan...it was perfect  from the petals in the Isle to the backdrop of the ocean.

It was a great day overall and I cannot fault any part of the day. 

Our guests were pleased they came and they have made plans to come every 5 years on the anniversary...we will probably be going sooner since we are suffering withdrawals!


  Casey & James Brahne

Casey & James Brahne

Our choice to have an overseas wedding was to have our nearest and dearest there on our special day without all of the traditional formalities of an at-home wedding. As a result, we were able to spend not just a single day, but an entire week with our family and friends, so this was truly a memorable time that we will cherish forever.

We chose Rarotonga as our wedding destination as it was close to our heart, having gotten engaged in Aitutaki two years previously. It was a relaxing and well coordinated day, weather was perfect, our guests had an amazing time and we couldn’t find a single fault to our day (other than being too hot). 

Tonia at Bon Voyage helped immensely with our guests travel and coordinated with the wedding planners at the resort so this took the pressure off us – she was great! I would highly recommend a wedding planner both here and overseas to help coordinate the finer details so that you have time to focus on your big day.

I know a wedding can at times be stressful, but with an island wedding it was truly a blessing to plan and organise and I would happily recommend this destination to all.

Maria & Rob

Rob and I decided to get married overseas to get away from all the pressures that are placed on couples having it in your home town, and I want to say it was the best decision we made!

Tonia from Bon Voyage was amazing to deal with - arranging everything for us that needed to be.

On the day it was so relaxing to know everything was taken care of for us and it ran like clock work thanks to the team at The Rarotongan - they went above and beyond our expectations. 

I highly recommend using Tonia at Bon Voyage if you are thinking of getting married overseas if we could we could do it all over again we would do it exactly the same and not change a thing. 

Maria & Rob, Raratongan Beach Resort & Spa, Rarotonga, March 2016


Manuao and Semi

My partner and I are quite a young couple and are the first out of all of our friends to be married so we really went in quite blind as to how much there was to sort out and plan. We both have very large families...and wanted our close family and friends to celebrate this special day with us in an intimate and peaceful environment, as well as having a great holiday in the sun during winter in New Zealand! 

Our wedding day was so magical and I can honestly say one of the best days of my life. The Nautilus resort is absolutely stunning, the staff are super friendly and the food is delicious! 

My husband and I are so very grateful for all that Tonia done for us and couldn't recommend her enough!


  Hemi and Amy Wawatai

Hemi and Amy Wawatai

We picked Rarotonga to have our wedding and what a stunning place to get married!  

We stayed at the Rarotongan Beach Resort and it is such a perfect venue for a wedding. We had a beach wedding and couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.  

Thank you Tonia for organising our special day for friends and family. It was a stressless wedding and would highly recommend you again to anyone else getting married.  Thanks Hemi and Amy Wawatai

Nadine and Jarat

We always wanted our wedding overseas but having never been to the Islands we were pretty lost on where & how to start. Until we found Tonia that was.

She helped us extensively to decide on a perfect place for us as a couple and then organise all the flights & accommodation for all our guests. She also dealt with some "hiccups" from some of our guests pulling in and out very close to the departure date, which she handled this amazingly.

The whole process made it stress free for me as a bride as we didn't have to worry about organizing our guests travel....instead they could go straight to Tonia and book through her directly & easily. Tonia always got back to me really quickly when I had any queries and was very knowledgeable. Thank you Tonia.

We are so very happy that you helped us create our perfect day at the Pacific Resort, Rarotonga.

Jenna & Andrew

Tonia was a wealth of information when it came to assisting us in our rather broad plans of getting married on one of the Pacific Islands! In the end, we decided upon the Lagoon Breeze Villas in Rarotonga, and I don't think we could have had a more perfect accommodation and location for our holiday and wedding.

Thanks so much for being a part in our special day!

Jenna and Andrew Mullinger, Rarotonga, August, 2013

Jan-Eve & Shane

We had the most amazing trip ever.

Sunset resort was amazing, great service, clean, tidy and we were treated like royalty. Lynette was such a great wedding planner. So easy to work with and make our day perfect.

We loved everything about Raro. Hired our scooter and got out and saw the island. What a wonderful place and the locals are so friendly. Spent a lot of time in the pool sipping cocktails.We can wait to get back there again sometime in the near future.
We highly recommend Bon Voyage travel and Cruise. Wonderful service from start to finish. So helpful and answer my every question (I know there was a lot haha) Rarotonga was a great destination and The Resort we choose was perfect. You took a lot of stress out of our wedding and the resort handled the rest wonderfully. We couldn't be happier.

Jan-Eve & Shane - Sunset Resort - April 2013


  Rachel & Mike Conner

Rachel & Mike Conner

Having visited Rarotonga two years ago, there was never any question for us that we would go back there with family and friends to get married. Tonia helped us to decide the best location for what we were after and made sure that the travel plans for our large group of family and friends were taken care of - arranging various package deals (at excellent prices!!) to suit the needs of anyone who wanted to travel over to be with us for our big day. She even set up a website with information for those considering their travel/accommodation options which made the organisation process run that much more smoothly! It was great not having to run around after those guests who couldn’t make their minds up about what to do.

We would definitely recommend Tonia (and Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel) to anyone thinking about getting married overseas. In addition to organising flights and accommodation, she was very friendly and approachable, and was able to provide us with some great advice which really made the whole process as stress-free as possible. We had a fantastic mid-winter tropical holiday relaxing with family and friends, and to top that off with our wedding was just amazing!

Thanks to Tonia and the team for helping to organise our dream wedding!

Rachel and Mike Conner, July 2011

Carey and Noho Tuhaka

We got married at the gorgeous Edgewater Resort in Rarotonga and it was such a beautiful day! I can’t thank Tonia enough for all of her efforts in getting all our friends and family organised and sorted for our trip. Thank you Tonia for being with us right from the beginning to the day we touched down! 

With Tonia’s amazing work and advice we were able to have a surprisingly stress-free wedding and trip to Rarotonga and Aitutaki. She organised all facets of our travel from flights, to transfers and accommodation. She gave us such great advice which made everything less daunting and such a breeze!

  Rachel and Josh Martin

Rachel and Josh Martin

We got married at the Edgewater Resort; the place was just amazing with a fantastic wedding planner, Julz, and a awesome photographer, Jenna, and great friendly staff which made our day something we will never forget.

It all comes down to Tonia at Bon Voyage Travel for making everything so perfect.  We would absolutely recommend getting married over in Rarotonga as a must for a stress free wedding.  Thank you so much everyone.

Jo and Rod Smythe

We got married at The Sunset Resort in Rarotonga. The whole experience from dealing with Tonia at Bon Voyage, the holiday, the resort, the wedding, our wonderful wedding coordinator Lynette ticked all the boxes for us, and certainly exceeded our expectations.

Tonia was always friendly, helpful and professional, and a pleasure to deal with in organising our travel and accommodation arrangements. If it’s a “stress free”, and easy wedding you are wanting, this is definitely the way to go, and I would highly recommend to anyone considering getting married in Rarotonga.

All our friends and family that joined us all thoroughly enjoyed the experience too. We will be returning to Rarotonga, hopefully for our first wedding anniversary!

Tina & David Dome

After a bad wedding planner had left us up the creek without a canoe we were hugely relieved to find Tonia.  She helped us work out which location would best meet our needs (and for us the Pacific Resort in Rarotonga was perfect) and helped us manage a wide range of guests needs.

Tonia is approachable, knowledgeable, flexible but most importantly she follows through. By the time she has finished helping you with your wedding you feel like she should be on the invite list.  We are based in Wellington and having Tonia in Auckland was absolutely no problem. 

Thanks heaps Tonia.

Tina & David Dome, July 2011 - Pacific Resort, Rarotonga

Abbey and Paul Farrell

Thank you so very much Tonia for making our wedding planning so easy!!  Your helpful suggestions on accommodation, spa services and food were so very appreciated.  You were always so quick to respond to my queries via email and your light hearted demeanor always made me smile. 

We loved having our website up on the Bon Voyage link and it was great for our guests to just refer to our page for wedding updates.  Many of our guests utilized the gift registry through you so we are already planning our next trip!  This past year of wedding planning has been crazy but throughout it all, you never let us down!  

Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge of Rarotonga with us and we'll look forward to booking with you again for our first Anniversary!  Wedding planning is stressful at the best of times and you made our experience relaxed, fun and stress free! 

I would highly recommend your services to any bride-to-be and I am looking forward to working with you on our next big adventure to the States in 2012!  Hugs - Mr. & Mrs. Farrell

Thank you to Tonia and Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel for helping us to organise our perfect wedding at the Pacific Resort, Rarotonga.  Tonia helped us organise flights and accommodation for over fifty people while also helping us pick the best hotel to suit our dream wedding, it was a day that we will never forget and thank you for all your help

Stefanie and Lole Tipi

We had the most beautiful stress-free Rarotongan Wedding and all thanks to Tonia!

The wedding was right at the beach with family, friends, sand, sunshine, tears and laughter. It was even better than we had hoped! But the great thing about an overseas wedding is that it is not over in a day - you get to have an amazing week in Paradise with family and friends! We had the most amazing week of our lives and all came back relaxed and happy - and weeks on people are still constantly reminiscing! A truly memorable experience for all!

Tonia organised all travel plans and accommodation for our entire wedding party of 50 guests and booked us a personal Wedding Planner at the Edgewater Resort, making the planning a breeze. We highly recommend Tonia with her friendly nature, expert knowledge and endless patience and flexibility! This is the way to get married!

Shari and Nathan Te Huia

Deciding to get married in Rarotonga and choosing Tonia from Bon Voyage to organise our travel was the best decision we ever made!

Tonia took care of all of our travel details, which included organising family that came from Australia.  She knew exactly what would best suit our needs and found us an excellent package deal.  We even got our own web page that everyone could visit.

I would thoroughly recommend getting married overseas and using Tonia's expertise as she will take care of every detail without any stress on you.  Everthing was completely stress free and marrying overseas is also a fantastic holiday for everyone.  Our family absolutely loved Rarotonga!

On the day of our wedding it was raining, but just before the service on the beach at 4pm the rain stopped and we managed to exchange our wedding vows.

It has always been my dream to walk down the beach to get married and I am so happy my dream came true...A big thankyou to our travel organiser Tonia. Tonia arranged all the travel/accommodation requirements for our 40 guests, we couldn’t have done it without her help...


  Nicky and Karauria Ruru

Nicky and Karauria Ruru

Tonia and the team at Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel came highly recommended from our friends.  She is a very dedicated and hard working agent, who knows what suits people and the crowd that you are taking with you. 

Tonia helped my husband and I organise our wedding in Rarotonga.  Right from the very start we knew we were in good hands.  She had us sorted out in no time, along with both our families and our friends.  We even got our own web page for guests to use as information on their options.  Under her expert guidance, we sorted out a variety of package deals (Tonia got us some great discounts), and then we had to wait until family decided what they were doing. 

For all people wanting to get married overseas, I would have to recommend Tonia and Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel.  They know all there is to know about overseas weddings, can get some really great deals for groups, and are willing to go above and beyond to get you all that you need for yourselves and your guests. 

Once again, thanks Tonia for all your hard work, I will surely be using your team again.

Natalie and Ryan Carpenter

For anyone out there considering Rarotonga as a wedding venue, I can say whole-heartedly that it is a perfect paradise!  Neither my husband or myself had been there before, but it really does look like the pictures - it's screensaver stuff!

We were married at the Edgewater Resort and Heather the Wedding Planner took care of everything. There was no sign of bridezilla! It was so stressless and easy, I wanted to get married again.  She is such a nice lady!  Heather arranged the photographer and the videographer; we got the top-of-the-range package for both and I'm really glad we did.  We have beautiful photos and amazing footage of the wedding -  it's so worth it.  She also did the celebrant and the flowers - all super.

My family fell in love with Rarotonga too.  The people are just so friendly and it feels so relaxing.  I loved it - truly a special day for us.

Stacey & Chris Morunga

Choosing Bon Voyage to organise my wedding travel arrangements was the first decision that I made, and by far one of the best!  Tonia has such a broad range of knowledge in destination weddings, her advise was invaluable!  From arranging packages for my family all over New Zealand to helping me choose the right resort for our wedding.
Chris and I decided to get married at The Rarotongan Beach Resort and Spa. The wedding team there were just amazing, and had everything under control from the moment we stepped into the reception!    The facilities there were perfect for my friends and family ranging from 6 months old to 70 years old in age and we not only had the perfect wedding, we also enjoyed a fabulous holiday with our family that we will never forget.

Thank you Tonia for all your hard work & help organising the travel for our wedding in Rarotonga. You made the whole process very easy and it was great that our group had one person to go to with all their queries and travel arranging. The wedding planners at The Rarotongan also did a great job. Every detail was taken care of and it made the whole experience very stress free which was exactly what we wanted.

Amanda and Deane Clark, October 2008

Louise and Hemi Austin

Hemi and I had a wonderful time at the Rarotonga Resort. The wedding co-ordinators were professional and polite and exceeded our expectations.  They made our wedding and holiday stress free. They organised everything from the smaller details of the table setting to the type of music we wanted played at our ceremony. Our family and friends had such a lovely time that they are looking forward to a trip back one day to Rarotonga...




  Karl & Stacey

Karl & Stacey

Tonia came highly recommended to us by a good friend of ours and when we finally decided that a destination wedding was what we wanted, we got in touch with her straight away.

Tonia was truly fantastic, she was always friendly, professional, went above and beyond her duties and had a great sense of humour (which is always a bonus). Any and all of our questions, queries and concerns were answered quickly and efficiently; and Tonia made sure we knew she was on our side and ready to help every step of the way.

Tonia was amazing at coordinating all the travel arrangements for ourselves and our families and sorting out any details with the resort and the wedding coordinators. Our destination wedding experience was stress-free, magical and all around incredible; all thanks to Tonia and her hard work on our behalf.

We were 100% satisfied with Tonia’s services and we highly recommend her to anyone looking to plan a destination wedding!

Mechelle and Neil

Our dream wedding was always to be at the beach. We contacted Tonia and the dream became a reality.

Aunty Una was our wedding planner at the Warwick Fiji, she was absolutely incredible! We did not have to worry about anything. Our wedding day was everything we wanted and more. Being able to have our friends and family with us for more than just the wedding day, made it that much more special.  The staff at the Warwick made every day that we were there feel like we were the only two people there. The perfect place to have had our wedding!

We also had the honour of having Tonia arrange our honeymoon a year later at the Marriott Momi Bay. Beautiful resort with very friendly staff who made our stay so special. 

Thanks Tonia for all your hard work and support and making both our wedding and our honeymoon unforgettable!

Melissa and Shannon Rowe

"If you are reading this and are looking for someone to help plan your destination wedding, look no further! Tonia is simply the best!

 There are no words to describe just how grateful we are. Tonia was hands down the best decision we made, we really did have the best day of our lives and we will treasure it forever."

Kaysha and Logan McRae

"We would like to say a huge thanks to Tonia for her recommendation of our wedding venue and Honeymoon destination. We had already planned to marry in Fiji, but her suggestion for the wedding venue was perfect and we never would have found it ourselves!

...Overall, both the Warwick Resort Coral Coast, and Lomani Resort delivered beyond our expectations - and all travel arrangements by Tonia went to plan and made it very easy for us and our guests to get on with enjoying our holiday/wedding."

Kelly and Stephen Thompson

"This was more than just a dream, it was the most beautiful, fun, exciting and breathtaking day of my life.

You are in good hands..."

Melody and Brad

Tonia was invaluable in the planning and organisation of our wedding.  No issue was too small and no stone was left unturned...

Michelle and Dean

Making the decision to get married abroad, in the hope of a "stress free" wedding, was the best decision we made!

After meeting up with Tonia to discuss the many options and locations we chose Mana Island Resort, Fiji..

Lisa and Ricardo

Ricardo and I decided that we were going to have a destination wedding because we thought it was a great idea to have our wedding and family holiday with our three children at the same time rather than spend the same kind of money just having a wedding at home. We had already decided on our destination being Fiji and through friends and family experiences we had narrowed it down to two Resorts.

We had no idea where to start with planning an overseas wedding so we contacted Tonia – a professional! And what a professional she was, so knowledgeable and friendly, she was absolutely fantastic!

Shelley and Bryce Pearce

We knew from day one that we wanted an island wedding, but having never been to any of the islands, we had no idea where to start! Tonia stepped up right from the start with a wealth of knowledge and it was clear that Fiji was the winning option...



Franceena and Payden Ruri

I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to have had Tonia organise our wedding. My greatest gratitude goes to her as she was so easy to work with, and made the booking and organising process easy. It was definitely the best decision we made after deciding we wanted to get married in Fiji... 

As a bride, I was so calm and relaxed because Tonia had done all the hard work for me! She was amazing and we had a stress-free wedding and build-up to the wedding. 

Memories are forever, and they will be even more memorable because of the ease of organising our wedding. Thanks to Tonia.....we will cherish them forever. 

Lisa and Kevin Tatum

Planning a wedding can be either stressful and take up every minute of every day or it can be easy, organised and still take up every minute of everyday!

When my husband and I decided to get married we looked at venues, prices and how we could make it enjoyable for everyone. The easiest option - Island wedding!!!

We choose The Outrigger at Fiji because it was on the Coral Coast, had nine restaurants and bars, a kids club and catered for all of our 81 guests. It was the best decision and week!!


  Chanel & Joseph Ineson

Chanel & Joseph Ineson

Our wedding in Fiji felt like something from a movie from day one. It was just relaxation fun and bliss in paradise. We had a group of 29 people who all had an experience of a lifetime.

Plantation catered to all age groups and there was something for everyone - even my granny who is celiac. The whole process of the wedding was very relaxed which I enjoyed they basically organize everything and you can just ask for any special requests.

We just turned up on the day and it was picture perfect and completely under control. Would highly recommend! ! BonVoyage Travel were above and beyond helpful and extremely fast with communication which was fantastic A++++

Chanel & Joseph Ineson, Fiji, May 2015

Henry and Annie

Annie and I decided that we would love to look into a Fiji Beach Wedding. A quick scan of the internet and we stumbled across Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel and Tonia Timmins was quick to respond to our email query...

We would like to say a huge thank you to the staff at Lomani Resort who went above and beyond in every way possible. They provided us with an experience and memories that will live with us forever, and we are already planning a return trip.

To Tonia and Bon Voyage, the organisation, advice and assistance was simply second to none and we never felt you were more than a phone call away. Thank you so much…

Edwina and Forli

Forlie and I would like to send a massive thank you to Tonia who over the course of a year managed to co-ordinate our wedding held on August 4th 2014, not only our trip, she also organised the trips for all of our family and friends who joined us on the magnificent Plantation Island Resort...


  Mark & Claire Mitchell

Mark & Claire Mitchell

“We have just got back from our wedding in Fiji.  Tonia organized the whole thing and from the start she was very efficient, helpful and had everything under control. Our wedding was held at the Plantation Island Resort and it was fantastic.  They did the most wonderful job and made our day perfect.  It surpassed all our expectations. 

They went the extra mile even with small details like ordering in the material for our alter to match our color scheme.  All our guests stayed for around a week and everyone had a great time. We also had a 40th birthday whilst we were there and the resort set up a lovely table and party area on the beach for us. 

We then went to Lomani Resort for our honeymoon and it was amazing.  Gorgeous place and the staff were fantastic.  We all can’t wait to go back!!!  Many, many thanks!”

Mark & Claire Mitchell. Plantation Resort, Fiji, May 2013

Anna & Patrick Buckley

We got married at the Sofitel Resort and Spa Denarau Island,  Fiji, July 2012. We always had our hearts set on having our wedding in Fiji and we were told you need to talk to Tonia "she is awesome".

The whole experience from dealing with Tonia at Bon Voyage, the holiday, the resort, the wedding, the honeymoon, our wonderful wedding coordinator Selai ticked all the boxes for us, and certainly exceeded our expectations...

Anna and Damian Bowden

Damian and I got married at the Mana Island Resort and Spa in Fiji on the 8th of October 2012. Choosing an overseas wedding was a huge deal for me, I am a very organised and particular person and I was concerned that things wouldn't turn out exactly perfect and to my standards. BUT.. everything was more than perfect and I highly recommend having an overseas wedding...



  Amanda and Jamie Mason

Amanda and Jamie Mason

We went to Mana Island, Fiji, in 2005 as a couple together for just over a year and by the time we left we knew that we would be together forever so going back to get married there was amazing!

Thank you so much Tonia for your help over the last two years, you have been amazing help from the minute I contacted you with questions until the day we no longer needed your help. Tonia made the travel arrangements for our 28 guests extremely easy for them to attend our wedding. With the combination of great friends, family, Fiji time, no stress, beautiful sunny weather, great staff and 35 degrees on the day it was a truly magical day and I would recommend it to everyone considering an overseas wedding.

Amanda and Jamie Mason, September 2011 - Mana Resort

Chris and Cher Bunce

A destination wedding is the perfect way to get married and celebrate your special day with family and loved ones.   Not only is it comparable expense-wise, it lasts longer than a day and everyone gets a holiday to remember!  The abundant sunshine, white sandy beaches and pristine waters of Fiji’s islands made our decision to tie the knot in paradise an easy one.  

It was surprisingly stress-free and easy to organise as we relied totally on Tonia...


  Emma and Andrew MacDonald

Emma and Andrew MacDonald

We would fully recommend a wedding in Fiji.  Our wedding day was perfect and we wouldn't have changed a thing.  The whole process has been really stress free, from meeting with Tonia and booking our wedding package to organising the actual wedding day itself with the Sheraton wedding coordinator. 

We didn't have to compromise on any of the important aspects of our wedding day such as professional hair and makeup and extended photography.  Everyone we dealt with went out of their way to ensure we had an amazing day and we have had nothing but positive feedback from our guests.  Fiji is an amazing location for a wedding as there are frequent flights, little impact on changing time zones and Denarau had numerous accommodation options for our guests.

Emma and Andrew MacDonald, September 2009

Leesa and Scott Skirrow

The Funky Fish was a really personal, friendly place to get married. The staff were great, especially the owners Brad and Rosemary, who pulled out all the stops for us so our day went as smoothly as possible. This was no small task as there were a couple of major hiccups on the day, which they dealt with in their stride.

Tonia at Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel was the perfect wedding organiser. She dealt with every arrangement that was needed including excellent liaison between us and the resort. Tonia followed up with every little detail. I couldn't have chosen a better person for the job. She is a top travel agent. I would definitely choose Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel again.

Leesa and Scott Skirrow, September 2008



Diana & Timothy Suaniu

There are not enough words to thank you for planning all our guests flights and accommodation, and for planning our honeymoon - which we also loved just as much!

Your work is amazing...I don't know how you do it. We'd like to share some pictures that shows what Tonia from Bon Voyage helped us create from scratch for our special day.  

Diana & Timothy Suaniu, Sheraton Samoa, September 2017




Tamsin and Haydn

The whole holiday was everything we dreamed of, the wedding was perfect, the people in Vanuatu were so friendly and treated us like royalty. Port Villa had many shops and markets which we enjoyed looking around and bought a few souvenirs, we stayed one night at the Grand hotel and casino, it had great views and it was nice place to stay.

We were transferred to the Havannah resort the day after we arrived, it was breath taking, the views, the white sand beach, the food, the staff, and the beautiful villas, it was a secluded couples retreat, each villa had its own private pathway, two basins, modern, clean and it excellent air conditioning as it was around 30 degrees there.

The staff did a romantic turn down each night and after dinner we came back to immaculate room, with a friendly note from the house keepers saying goodnight and an animal made from towels at the end of our bed...

Haley and Blair Gardner

I emailed Bon Voyage after several months of perusing the internet getting nowhere looking for an island beach wedding. Tonia replied straight away and guided me perfectly from day dot.  She relieved me of all anxiety that I had over someone else organising our wedding.

Instantly I knew I was in the hands of a professional. I received the most friendly (and funny) emails from her over the next couple of months. She supplied all the options and information I needed and organised pretty much everything... 


Cruise to your wedding!

A huge thank you to Tonia at Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel for all of the time and effort spent helping to make our big day perfect.

Tonia organised the cruise bookings for us and our 45 wedding guests. She liaised with P&O for me and, using her already extensive knowledge and expertise, answered the many questions we had regarding food and drinks, entertainment and a cake onboard...

A wedding cruise we will all remember.

Where to start?

Well getting married is one of the happiest days of your life, but it can also be one of the most stressful. Everybody has an opinion, and there is always a long list is on who to invite.

Simon and I decided we didn't want all that hassle, especially as it was second time around for myself as the bride. So instead, we picked a P&O Cruise - because it sounded pretty much like a holiday and who doesn't like a holiday?

Thank you to Tonia for always being so friendly and positive when answering all our questions (and there was a lot) about organising our cruise (with our 33 guests), rooms, insurance and giving helpful advice when deciding where in Vanuatu to get married. 

She was our first port of call for liaising with P & O, about organising our cakes for our wedding and organising a special birthday occasion...

Recently our family & friends went on a P&O cruise to celebrate my sister's wedding at Vanuatu.

Tonia Timmins at Bon Voyage Cruises & Travel handled our bookings for us & also provided us with information & contacts in Vanuatu to assist us with organising the wedding.

We found Tonia to be absolutely brilliant, extremely helpful & always happy to respond to our "incessant" emails asking for information about the cruise etc. Every query we made was answered promptly and Tonia always made us feel ok asking any questions or voicing any concerns we had. We would be happy to recommend Tonia to anyone planning a cruise or any other holiday, she was excellent.

A big thanks to Tonia at Bon Voyage travel for helping us organise the most stress free wedding we could imagine.

My husband and I knew we wanted our wedding day to be relaxed and about us, and we wanted to say “I do” on a beautiful beach in an idyllic setting. We also really wanted to do another cruise – we had travelled with P&O the previous year and loved it, but we weren’t keen on getting married on the ship.
When we stumbled on the Bon Voyage website and discovered we could do our cruise from Auckland and get married in Vanuatu as part of the process, we were delighted...

After reading Tonia's article entitled, "The Love Boat - Cruising to your South Pacific Wedding" - we were hooked. It seemed the perfect solution to all the issues we were facing in planning our wedding. With Tonia's expertise, along with our wedding planner from Events Vanuatu, we sailed away stress free to our perfect wedding on a sandy beach in Vanuatu - even a pod of dolphins arrived to share in our celebrations!

We ended the day back on board with cocktails and canapes on the Oasis deck and dinner at the Seafood and Steakhouse restaurant.  The crew reserved these areas just for our wedding party, allowing us some privacy as the ship was full. Along with family and friends, we experienced such a unique, fun and romantic wedding cruise on board our Love Boat a.k.a the Pacific Sun. Our wedding was a dream come true and exceeded our expectations.

We would not have changed a thing, other than making time stand still! Tonia organized our entire wedding party, and everyone commented on how professional, efficient and friendly she was. We thoroughly recommend Tonia as she truly is an expert in Cruising to your South Pacific Wedding.
