Our Story

Leigh and Stacey’s story started in 2012 when we met during Melbourne’s spring racing Derby day at Flemington racecourse through mutual friends.

In 2017, Leigh and Stacey went on a helicopter ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in America were Leigh ran off looking for lizards and told her to quickly come and look at something he found….Stacey found a sparkling ring and Leigh proposed to her at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. All of Melbourne knew about the proposal except for Stacey.

Stacey and Leigh have already built a beautiful home together, also known as Duffin Manor and welcomed into the world two beautiful daughters, Georgie in September of 2018 and Lana in March of 2022.

Since Stacey and Leigh were engaged abroad, Stacey has finally looked into getting married and after tinkering with a few ideas, getting married in Fiji was on top of the list. Leigh agreed and said it was the best idea I have ever put forward to him. A mutual decision of nothing more perfect than to tie the knot in paradise with our beautiful girls besides us on our special day, with in mind of having our close family and friends to witness and celebrate with us. We all know Leigh is a bit of a music man and something close to resembling the imagination that comes from the song Kokomo by the Beachboys is the ideal setting for us to begin the next chapter of our story together.

Make your destination wedding travel a breeze with Viva Destination Weddings!

While booking online can be convenient, it often comes with hidden complexities. Viva Destination Weddings offers several advantages to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for your destination wedding travel:

Transparent pricing

Unlike some online sites, we won’t surprise you with hidden fees or unexpected exchange rate fluctuations. We negotiate & lock in package pricing upfront, so the price you see is the price you pay. We take on the risk of changes to exchange rates which online sites often pass onto you.

Stress-free Booking

We handle everything from flights and transfers to pre or post wedding adventures, saving you time and effort.

Expert Guidance

Our travel specialists have extensive knowledge about the wedding venue and destination, ensuring a seamless travel experience.

Peace of Mind

If unexpected travel issues arise, we will be there to assist you, resolving any problems and minimising stress.

Simplified Communication

We communicate directly with the wedding venue on your behalf, ensuring you receive all the necessary information.

Effortless Travel Coordination

We handle all your travel documentation, including vouchers and real-time flight information, all in one convenient location. This means less paperwork for you and peace of mind knowing everything is organized and readily accessible.

Guest Travel

Viva Destination Weddings can arrange all travel and accommodation.  Contact them via the Quotes and Assistance form and they can assist your all of your travel arrangements.  Viva Destination Weddings have put together a 5 night package for our guests and shorter or longer stays are also possible.


  • 5 nights at Outrigger Fiji Beach Resort in a resort view room
  • Breakfast daily for 2 adults
  • Kids stay, play & eat for free (aged 12 and under)
  • Return private car transfers from Nadi International Airport to Outrigger Fiji

Room upgrades & meal plans are also available – ask Viva Destination Weddings for details.

Comparing to online sites such as Expedia

If you are going to book through Expedia or another site please ensure you check the inclusions, conditions and payment terms carefully as they may be different.  Please also note sites like Expedia offer “dynamic pricing” meaning the price can change as availability at the hotel and foreign exchange rates change.  Rates that are “pay later” are usually charged in local currency on arrival and therefore subject to the exchange rate at the time of your stay plus any additional bank or credit card fees for foreign currency transactions.

Viva Destination Weddings are a full service travel agency and can arrange everything including, flights transfers, additional travel pre or post the wedding and travel insurance.  In the unlikely event of issues that may occur (i.e. flight delays or cancellations etc) Viva take care of this for you.  This can save you hours of time and unwanted stress.  If you book direct or through online sites Viva unfortunately can’t assist you in this situation.  Also booking through Viva will ensure they can communicate with the hotel you are a guest of our wedding which online sites can’t do.
