The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort

Add A Touch Of Tradition To Your Dreamy White Wedding

A wedding at any St. Regis hotel or resort around the world is destined to be a grand and cherished celebration. The brand is fabled for its bespoke service and impeccable attention to detail, with time-honoured legacies of unrivalled elegance and world-class levels of luxury that add to the many reasons why you would want to wed at one of their prestigious resorts.

And luckily for those who dream of a wedding soothed by a warm tropical breeze, the exemplary hospitality of the St. Regis brand has made its way to the heart of the Pacific Ocean. Set amidst rare natural beauty that reaches out across 44 lush green acres of carefree elegance, The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort rests in the essence of paradise, edged by powdery white sands and a crystalline lagoon.

Many claim the island of Bora Bora to be the most beautiful in the world, and it is indisputably one of the most romantic. With the addition of The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort, it is now becoming known as an enticing retreat for upscale weddings that demand the very best. With a lagoon that’s an artist’s palette of blues and greens, and lush tropical slopes and valleys covered with hibiscus and palms, Bora Bora is love at first sight for couples seduced by island romance.

The exclusive wedding offerings at the resort are created to wholly fulfill your ethereal dreams of your perfect day. The professional wedding team even encourages you to completely customise your wedding using the a la carte menu, to create a day that is totally right for you. You might want a tropical theme to match the environment, mixing colourful blooms with local seashells to bring the island spirit to life. Or you might choose the Tahitian white-on-white theme that blends all-white fabrics and “Tiare” flowers with Tahitian black pearl accents.

To help you plan your big day, the resort boasts its own Bridal Boutique – a bride’s haven to turn her dreams into reality. There are designer wedding gowns made by Cecilie Melli available to rent or buy, as well as a team of expert wedding planners who believe that no gesture is too small nor any declaration too elaborate to arrange.

To give you a helping hand, the team will create suggestion weddings for you to take or leave as you choose. For example, the Sunkissed Luxury suggestion wedding is a romantic sunset celebration at the resort’s Spa Beach. The Spa Beach offers the best of both worlds if you want to wed beside a picturesque lagoon, yet you don’t fancy getting sand on your wedding dress. This is because the Spa Beach hosts a stunning garden ideal for a ceremony of up to 100 guests, with the sand and pond-like waters just footsteps away for when you’re finally ready to swap your glitzy heels for your bridal beach sandals.

As part of the package, the resort will provide a one-hour meeting with your St. Regis Wedding Coordinator upon arrival, then full-time assistance during the whole event on the big day. And seeing as the wedding will be set beside the Spa Beach, the package suggests a His and Hers two-day spa grooming session at the Miri Miri Spa by Clarins, which includes body polishers, facials, a manicure and pedicure, hair and makeup, as well as a 50 minute Couples Massage.

Then, when your special day finally arrives, you and your soon-to be will be whisked away on a wedding-decorated Marumana Boat to the village of Vaitape, where you will officially become husband and wife during a Civil Ceremony at the Town Hall. On your return, “Just Married” balloons adorn the boat, while a bottle of chilled “Louis Roederer Cristal” Champagne awaits with cold nibbles for you to you indulge in as you cruise back across the lagoon.

Once you arrive back at the Spa Beach, the bride receives her gorgeous bouquet while the groom is dressed in his boutonnière. An aisle of white flower petals lead you as newlyweds to the ceremonial arch, which you can request to be decorated in any style of your choosing. Then, as the sun starts to melt toward the aquamarine horizon, the sunset wedding ceremony commences.

As you exchange your vows in this hopelessly romantic setting, you are each adorned with “Presidential size” Tiare flower leis while an acoustic guitar player serenades your love. As your partner takes hold of your hand to walk back down the aisle, your guests may line the walkway and shower you in fragrant flowers and confetti.To celebrate the day, you and your guests can enjoy flowing Cristal Champagne alongside a gorgeous white wedding cake, before a three-course candelit dinner under the beach gazebo concludes the breathtaking celebration.

And finally, once you and your loved one are alone together, you can escape to your luxury villa where a flower turndown service and a Lover’s Jacuzzi awaits. When you awake the next day, you are treated to a Louis Roederer Cristal Champagne breakfast served in a canoe that gently drifts around the lagoon, before an island tour on jet skis lets you explore paradise in private.

The Sunkissed Luxury package is simply a template to give you an idea of what your special day might look like. You can choose to add or remove any of the features, and replace them with something more lavish, or perhaps something a little more understated. With the help of the full-time wedding planners, you can plan your day so that it’s exactly how you dream it to be.
