Why get married in Hawaii?

Discovered by Captain Cook in 1778, the Hawaiian Islands are now famous as one of the world’s premier year‐round holiday resorts, conjuring up visions of a tropical paradise.

Some 130 islands, sandbars and reefs make up this Pacific state and with its closest neighbour being the Christmas Island chain, around 2000 miles to the south, Hawaii is the most isolated group of islands on earth.

What kind of wedding ceremony can I have in Hawaii?

Ceremonies can be indoors, in a church, chapel or hotel, or outdoors in a beautiful tropical location. You can take a helicopter flight into the forest or even write your vows in the sunken remains of a ship ‐‐ just about anything goes in Hawaii.
