Alexis and Tristan for all eternity

AUSTRALIAN couple Alexis and Tristan Conn did not envision how their marriage would turn out 10 years later. Now parents to two lovely daughters , the couple still pinch themselves at how they've managed to come this far. So on October 10, 2017 to mark their journey, the couple flew into Fiji to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.

"We first met through friends on New Year's Eve at a local pub — the Newport Arms," described the couple.

"Our actual wedding date was July 1, 2007, but October 10 seemed to fit our 10-year anniversary well plus it's Fiji Day so we were able to have an extra celebration!"

The couple added they chose Fiji because of its location as a family holiday destination.

"We have always wanted to visit Fiji and this was our first time here. We will definately be back," they said.

The couple renewed their wedding vows at Warwick Fiji on the Coral Coast in Sigatoka.

"We chose Warwick Fiji as our family holiday and vow renewal destination because it was recommended by friends and seemed like the perfect backdrop to renew our wedding vows with our two beautiful daughters," said Alexis.

Their wedding day in 2007 had the bride and bridesmaid arriving at the ceremony by boat and to recreate that moment the couple chose the bilibili or bamboo raft to transport Alexis and her two daughters.

"The bilibili was definitely a highlight for our vow renewal and an experience we will never forget. We will definitely be back," she said.

"We were so excited to share our special day with our 2 daughters in a perfect location and reflect on the past 10 years," the couple said.
