NUKU NUKU, TONGA - MAY 4: Relatives and friends of the royal family attend the traditional marriage kava ceremony the day after the wedding ceremony of the Honorable Titilupe Fanetupouvava'u Tuita to Second Lieutenant Siaosi Kiu Tau Ki Vailahi Kaho on May 4, 2007 in Nuku Nuku, Tonga. The couple returns to the village of the groom and the bride is offered a taste of kava served by her husband. Tonga is one of the last surviving monarchies in the Pacific islands, however there has been a recent push towards democratic reform, challenging the people of Tonga to maintain their cultural heritage while conforming to modern day capitalism.
