Making it legal
You need to apply for your licence in person to the Registrar of Marriages in the Cook Islands at least 3 days prior to the marriage. You will need your passport and birth certificate when filing the Notice of Intended Marriage at the Registrar’s Office in Avarua. For further details visit the Ministry of Justice site – oh and you have to be 21 years of age or over, otherwise written approval by your parents is required. Cook Island marriages are legally binding worldwide.
A Cook Islands wedding can be your own tropical festival.
There’s so much for your group to do together, from mud-soaked buggy jungle day tours to fancy island nights, lagoon sunrise SUP yoga to twilight disco-light paddleboarding cruises, from lounging on your own beach to dancing the night away to string bands in open-air bars with the locals.
