2People1Life Wedding in Tahiti & Bora Bora

What if you could have your dream wedding at each of your bucket list destinations around the world? That’s exactly what Alex Pelling and Lisa Gant, the duo behind 2People1Life, have been doing since 2011. They quit their jobs, sold their house and vowed to get married in every country they visit. Their goal is to embrace the culture and local customs of each destination and discover what makes bringing two people together such a worldwide tradition.

Back in April, they flew to our islands and had their first inflight wedding aboard Air Tahiti Nui, followed by a traditional Tahitian wedding ceremony in both Tahiti and Bora Bora. Although the couple is still not legally married, they plan to return to their favorite place and officially tie the knot in 2014. Let’s hope Tahiti topped their list! Read more

Vintage Vahines

For centuries, the intrigue surrounding the South Seas was often attributed to one thing — the beauty of the Tahitian vahine. Captain James Cook and Joseph Banks wrote of their encounters with these exotic Polynesian women during their voyage in 1769; Fletcher Christian was so captivated by his attraction that he carried out the famous mutiny on the Bounty in 1789; and artists like Paul Gauguin later brought these creatures to life through their words, paintings and portraits.
