YOUR TAHITI WEDDING PLANNER AND CELEBRANT
ABOUT

I help international couples plan a tropical beach wedding in Tahiti that combines a personal experience with striking landscapes and untouched beauty… no cookie-cutter resort packages allowed!
My mission? Connecting my couples to great vendors & creating unique heartfelt ceremonies. With style.

Nelly Grange

With years in the hospitality industry, Nelly carries a wealth of professional experience from her work at prestigious European properties and since 2002 in colorful French Polynesia.

Working successively within the largest inbound Tour Operator in Tahiti then at several resorts in the islands, Nelly was based in Bora Bora, next in Huahine and since 2009, she enjoys living in beautiful Moorea.

When Nelly’s not working on fabulous Tahiti destination weddings, you will most likely find her hanging around her garden with her Hubby, her dog and the cat… she could easily live on French cheese and bread, red wine and loves sushi’s and tuna sashimi.

She dreams about traveling the world and has already visited over 20 countries… lots of destinations and places remain on her to-do list either with some trekking plans in mind or scuba diving explorations.

In 2013, knowledgeable of the skills and expertise she possesses in managing sales, marketing and event planning for over a decade, Nelly decided to merge her passion for the islands of Tahiti, her love for all the details that go into planning a wedding and creativity into one and launched wedOtahiti. Nelly also graduated as a Certified Wedding & Event Planner at The Wedding Planning Institute, to well complement her Master’s Degree in Hotel Management & Marketing. She is a proud member of the Association of Bridal Consultants and is also a Certified Green Wedding Professional.

Because your Tahiti Wedding Planner plays such an integral role in the planning of your most important day, Nelly is dedicated full-time to planning, budgeting, working with vendors, contracting, not to mention keeping up with the latest trends in bridal fashion, color choices and wedding design for you, in a destination she knows so well.

ABC Certified Wedding Planner
In 2014, she decided that she would be the very first (and only) professional Western wedding officiant in Tahiti, and studied at the Celebrant Foundation & Institute in the United-States. She now holds a diploma in weddings as well as the title of Life-Cycle Celebrant® and writes heartfelt personalized ceremonies to her clients that recognize their unique personalities and tell their story.

Her favorite moment of a wedding? Seeing the happy couple bust a move on the dance floor (or when the cake comes out)!

I am a professionally trained Life-Cycle Wedding Celebrant (holding a diploma in weddings and special celebrations), and I specialize in crafting small weddings or commitment ceremonies. [...]

Traditional Polynesian Ceremony

Whether or not you choose to have a legal marriage in Tahiti (that is, a rather short ceremony taking place at the City Hall before the Mayor or one of its representative), you might want your tropical beach wedding to include some island traditions.

A traditional Polynesian ceremony takes place on a white-sand beach, and generally has you dressed up with white pareu (sarongs) and adorned with tropical fresh flower crowns and leis.

Although package contents vary from one location to another, a traditional Polynesian ceremony package always includes traditional gowns, a Tahitian priest to conduct the ceremony and seal the union, a group of Tahitian dancers and musicians, tropical flower arrangements, crowns and leis, and a marriage certificate made of “Tapa” (the cloth made from the bark of paper tropical trees).

As the ceremony concludes and while being wrapped in a “Tifaifai” (Tahitian quilt), the newlywed couple is given Tahitian names to commemorate their symbolic Tahitian wedding.

Traditional Polynesian ceremonies have no legal value. [...]

Tahiti Legal Wedding Ceremony

Given that you plan ahead and provide the required documents, you can be legally married in the Islands of Tahiti.
Same-sex couples may also be legally wed since the passing of the Marriage Equality Act in France!

For those of you of foreign citizenship:
You will be eligible to get married from the day on which you arrive in the Islands of Tahiti. A law was passed in France in 2009, which allows non-French nationals to be legally married throughout the Islands of Tahiti. No residency required! [...]

For those of you of French-citizenship, not living permanently in French Polynesia:
You will be required to stay for at least a month prior to being eligible to get married in the Islands of Tahiti. You will be asked to include a certificate of residency along with some other paperwork indeed, as a proof that you were physically present in the islands for a minimum of one month.
Once the complete paperwork has been remitted to the chosen City Hall, the expected delay before you can celebrate your Tahiti legal wedding ceremony and be united will be of about 10 days. [...]

GREEN WEDDING
SHOWCASE YOUR VALUES

Green Wedding

 

We don’t often stop to think about it, but every aspect of a wedding has environmental consequences. From the save-the-date cards before the wedding to the flowers, each choice a couple makes for their big day has an impact on the air, soil and water systems of our planet.

A green wedding is any wedding where the couple tries to decrease the impact of their event on the planet. It is one that is eco-conscious of the consumption of resources that would otherwise be used in the wedding.

If this is an area close to your heart, whether you are just looking for recycled invitations or for the whole wedding to be ethically and eco-sourced, wedOtahiti can help you achieve that vision. As a Certified Green Wedding Professional we have the knowledge and resources to help couples make eco-friendly choices throughout the planning process of their green wedding in Tahiti.

“A green wedding does not have to be an all-or-nothing proposition, it is about making sustainable choices where possible and practical and doing what you can to lessen the impact of your event. Do your best, enjoy the process, and know that every green element you choose makes a difference.” Environmental attorney and Green Bride Guide CEO Kate L. Harrison

If you live green lifestyles, your wedding should say it all!

Not only will it make you feel great on the day, but this is your chance to raise awareness and inspire others to think green, too! Pretty much everyone you love will be in the same place at the same time after all, let your eco-conscious values shine, while you start a healthy life together.

At wedOtahiti, in addition to helping couples greening their weddings, we are professionally and personally committed to make our every action as eco-friendly as possible:

  • Booking all meetings on the same day of the week to make one trip and reduce driving
  • Phone, Skype or other video conference programs are preferred over personal meetings for face-to-face chats, to reduce transportation needs
  • Having all information and brochures in a digital form rather than in print
  • Emailing contracts instead of printing and mailing them
  • Mobile computing and digital displays over printed papers
  • Using (PCW) recycled paper on printer as well as using the backs of printed paper
  • Recycling and composting, whenever possible
  • Using solar panels to heat water
  • Collecting rain water for domestic use
  • 100% house and office LED lighting
  • Using green cleaning products

There are so many (and much more) little ways to respect our environment in our everyday life and work… go green!
