A COUPLE from Auckland, New Zealand, yesterday secured a $26,000 wedding ceremony and honeymoon on Turtle Island in the Yasawas after beating out nine other couples from around the world for the prize.

Resort general manager Alexander Weiss said the competition had been an initiative of Turtle Island and was headed by its directors.

"Turtle Island asked worldwide for people to send a video of their wedding proposals and then the videos were put online," he said.

"It had been online and people were voting for their favourite proposal."

He said three local representatives from Turtle Island were currently in New Zealand to hand over the vouchers to the winning couple.

"The wedding will take place on Valentine's Day."
