OK so what is a tribal photo booth you might ask? We asked the same question!
You will get the boys dressed in warrior costumes with clubs and spears or tribal wear so your guests can have pictures taken with them, and the cute little warriors will come in too. They will add to the excitement, acting fiercely or jumping in the background - all adds to the fun of the night and creates a memorable Fiji experience!
Best bit - if you book for your 2018 event by the end of June, you get it absolutely free!

Press Release: Viva Destination Weddings & Travel launch
Brisbane-based destination wedding specialist Mandi Forrester-Jones is about to head up the launch of a new business offering high-end destination wedding planning and general travel services.
"We previously operated as two separate entities which were Worldwide Weddings and Adiona Escapes but are now in addition creating a new entity that captures the essence and services of our other brands”, both Adiona Escapes and Worldwide Weddings are still fully functioning and run by Mandi and the team. The new brand Viva Destination Weddings and Travel was created to effectively encompass both the highly popular destination weddings and the multitude of general travel services offered, while also now Viva Events will be specialising in destination travel events such as special birthdays and proposals.
“This segmentation of our current brands can maximise efficiencies and deliver even more value to our high-end clients who may want access to both of these services," said Mandi.
"I have been a travel agent for 35 years and have specialised in destination weddings for the past 10. I am also a marriage celebrant in Australia and I bring all that expertise into play when arranging my clients' dream weddings."
Mandi's existing clients will be serviced by the original brands, but if they would like to use our services again they will be moved seamlessly across to the new business. This way they will still enjoy the same high level of service and expertise that she and her team have always provided.
Viva Destination Weddings and Travel offers a full high-end destination wedding planning service for couples in dream locations around the world and takes care of all those arrangements which, if not completed correctly, can so easily ruin the big day.
Mandi's clients never have to worry about organising their documents, travel, accommodation or any of the very crucial arrangements for the ceremony itself including venues, catering, photography, entertainment, flowers or styling.
"Where are our clients really score is that we have experience of wedding planning, travel and event management where many of our competitors are either wedding planners or travel agents and lack our experience in putting together complete destination wedding packages," said Mandi.
Through their long experience Viva Destination Weddings and Travel have access to the best wedding venues in the world to make sure that clients' weddings are perfect in every detail. They have partnered with STA Travel who will take care of all bookings for wedding guests.
"We look forward to partnering with old friends and new ones for all their wedding planning and general travel requirements. Check us out on Facebook or visit our website to keep track of all the exciting developments as we go from strength to strength as a leading destination wedding planner and general travel agent in Brisbane," said Mandi.

Travel is exceedingly more than a simple flight, transfers and accommodation booking.
It’s about challenging your perceptions of the world, and exiting your comfort zones.
But there is a lot involved in ensuring you get what think you are getting! There’s a lot of incorrect information out there
Top 5 travel tips:
Families usually travel in school holidays. You will need to book far earlier! Airlines and resorts bring out specials to fill up seats/rooms. But in busy times such as School Holidays, that isn’t the case. The earlier you book, especially on airlines, the cheaper it will be. If you are flexible, then you can book later, but avoid the busy times.
Summary: if you want to travel in busy times, book early and don’t wait for a last-minute special!
Where to go? It is important to talk to experts so you are not disappointed. For example Fiji, most of the resorts are mini-destinations themselves, and you are generally more resort-bound. Whereas other areas such as Asia, that is not the case. What is important to you, Beaches? Culture? Activities etc? And - budget!
Summary: Talk to experts who have been there, they can help you work through the options
If travelling with children, it is a good idea to look for resorts that have kitchens, then you can purchase some basic groceries to save some money.
Lots of resorts offer kids staying/eating free. The stay free is really a bit of a marketing ploy. Rooms are costed on a per room basis, then divided by the number of adults sharing, so what you see advertised is always based on 2 adults sharing. So because the room is paid by the adults, kids can stay free!
With sites such as Trip Advisor etc, remember they are subjective. They are great for a guideline, and if you see one with a lot of complaints, then avoid it!
Summary: Keep an open mind, talk to people who know, and remember Photoshop is an amazing tool!
Be really careful when using currency conversions on booking or hotel websites.
These sites usually use a generic exchange rate from xe.com. However these are not accurate as they are just for estimation purposes. Your card will be charged in the local currency not the Australian equivalent, and your credit card will use their bank rate!
Beware - these cheaper sites often have restrictive conditions.
Summary: check every site carefully, if it too good to be true, it probably is
If you can’t afford the insurance, you can’t afford to travel!
Particularly if you are booking a long way ahead, if anything happens you may be able to claim back cancellation fees etc. Don’t skimp on the cover either, if you lose your possessions, the cheaper cover may only refund a portion of the value. Be wary of free credit card insurance. Check it through and make sure you have an individual policy number, not a group one.
For overseas you will need passports, and in most cases they need to be valid for at least 6 months past your return. Also check if visas are required!
Summary: Make sure you are covered for all eventualities. We have had clients come really unstuck!
