Tahiti Wedding


Two years ago, for our  wedding anniversary, we treated ourselves a  14-day cruise from  Auckland to Sydney, with an extra week tacked on  for a side trip to the Great Barrier Reef.  I arranged for our airline tickets using our air miles (free!).  The only way we could get to Auckland  using our miles was with an 8 hour stop over in Tahiti, from midnight until about 8:00 a.m.

Whoa,  can we back this trip up  and spend a few days in Tahiti?  Of course you can said the accommodating agent.  So we tacked on another few days.  We had to stop over anyway, why not stay a while.

The first day at the resort where we stayed, a young couple were married and came out to the beach restaurant for a wedding lunch. 


The happy couple were serenaded  by 
a Tahitian combo 


They smiled for their own wedding photographer as well as everyone taking pictures from the adjacent beach.




It was a few days before Valentine’s Day, and a perfect time for a wedding and honeymoon, and a wedding anniversary trip as well.
