A LUCKY couple from Australia beat 544 other entrants from around the world to win a wedding in Fiji valued at more than

$30,000.

Tourism Fiji's Facebook competition to win a wedding in Fiji was viewed by more than 30,000 people online.

The winning couple — Melanie Gibson and Julian Vera Uribe —- will now get married as part of Fiji's Tourism Expo on May 8, 2014.

Sally Cooper, Tourism Fiji's events director, said she was impressed by both the volume and quality of entries in the competition.

"Literally hundreds of people have made such huge effort with entries," she said.

"Weddings are one of the fastest growing niche markets in tourism for Fiji and this would be highlighted at the Fijian Tourism Expo, with professional wedding planners attending the event and also Fijian wedding service suppliers."

The "Pin Your Perfect Wedding" competition on Facebook invited couples to create their perfect tropical wedding from the ideal dress, hair and makeup to wedding rings, decorations and venue.
