Former New Zealand rugby star, Nigel Hunt made history as far as the Taumeasina Island Resort is concerned on Thursday.
The Sevens rugby player married his best friend Virgina Chong-Nee during an intimate tropical wedding attended by families, friends and guests.
The wedding was the first wedding to be held at the soon to be opened five star Resort.
Nigel said the idea to have his wedding at Taumeasina was born when he last visited Samoa three years ago.
“I came here to visit my family and saw that the resort was under construction, and I said to myself that I will be the first one to get married here,” said Nigel.
Nigel is 33, and he is the son of Fuamai Hunt from the village of Vaitoloa. Virgina Chong-Nee is 32 years-old and she is the daughter of Felise and Ofeira Chong-Nee.
