TESTIMONIALS

A BIG THANK YOU to Karan & the team at Wedding Destinations!

The perfect wedding at the perfect place ..
We got married at Edgewater Resort (Rarotonga) and thanks to Wedding Destinations & the staff at the Edgewater it was the most perfect / stress free wedding - holiday & honeymoon EVER!
Not only did we have a perfect wedding thanks to Wedding Destinations, we were able to bring together some of the most important family members to be part of our special day… and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything!

It sounds cliche but we had the very best day of our lives on our wedding day. The setting was perfect, the staff were attentive whilst being relaxed and to be holidaying in paradise at such a special time with close family and friends made it that much more special! (we also got to celebrate our wedding over a week of fun, rather than just the day!)

Wedding Destinations took care of all the planning and arrangements so I could relax and enjoy my day like a bride is meant to (I think I was still meandering through the local markets only a couple of hours before my ceremony) and enjoy the time leading up to the event, rather than getting stressed with little minute details. We would not have done anything differently and often reflect on how intimate, stress free and perfect our day was in comparison to most of our friends' big lavish weddings! It was all about us sharing our love for each other in front of our closest and dearest in such a beautiful majestic place. It was memorable for not only us but for all our guests and all commented that it was the best wedding they'd ever attended.

Our Cook Islands wedding was more romantic and more perfect than we ever thought possible and we are incredibly happy!

Hi Karan,
Steve and I wanted to say thank you to you and the team for making our day truly unforgettable. We had a few hiccups (none relating to you guys!) but at the end of the day everything was perfect as we were marrying our best friend! 🙂 The resort were fantastic - great people and a great atmosphere. Would absolutely recommend Pacific Resort to anyone!

I have attached a few pics for you! The DVD is amazing too they did a great job.
Hmm what else to report.. Cook Islands is an amazing destination for a wedding - if you haven't been you definitely should! Please thank Anika again for us for sorting out the luggage issue!!
Thanks again to you and the team.

Cheers,
Mr & Mrs Buchanan x
