A year ago today we got married on a small island at the Four Seasons Resort in Bora Bora. We had always wanted to go there and it is definitely one of the most beautiful places we have been.
Bora Bora is a small island surrounded by a turquoise lagoon and barrier reef. Motus (islets) form a ring around the island and on them overwater bungalows spread out towards the lagoon. Facing inland, you will see Mount Otemanu, the highest peak on Bora Bora at 727 metres.
Just like the other islands we visited in French Polynesia, there are a lot of activities to keep you busy, such as snorkelling, boat tours, paragliding, swimming with sharks and manta rays, and of course, getting married. Our wedding day started with photos and video of us getting ready before we met up to catch our private canoe out to the sunset motu for our ceremony. We had a traditional Tahitian ceremony where we exchanged our owns vows before heading back to our bungalow for dinner and sunset. It was a perfect day and turned out to be exactly what we wanted.
