Planning your Wedding in Samoa
For those looking to tie the knot away from the stress of home there are several great options from a beachfront wedding to a more conventional Church wedding in a local village or in Apia Town. The main hurdle is that you must obtain a marriage license at least 14 days before your wedding day by applying via the Justice Department in Apia but this is usually arranged by the resort given prior notice although you can apply yourself via email. If you're passionate about your photography, you may find it hard to find a photographer in Samoa and bringing in your own photographer requires official paperwork to be completed for a temporary work permit.
