These idyllic islands provide a dream setting to renew your vows or have a blessing.
It isn’t possible to legally marry in the Maldives. However, if this is where you’ve always imagined your dream ceremony taking place then we suggest getting married in the UK and then heading to the Maldives for a blessing and your honeymoon.
A blessing ceremony in the Maldives is very similar to a wedding ceremony. It generally takes place in a beach setting and you can specify the setup of the ceremony to your taste. The reception can also be tailored to suit you – typically, blessings in the Maldives include a candlelit dinner for the bride and groom on the night of the ceremony, which may be on the beach or in one of your resort’s restaurants. If you have friends and family celebrating with you, you can also organise a private dinner on the beach for you and your guests. No documentation is required to have a blessing in the Maldives.
We’ve listed some of our favourite romantic hideaways for a Maldives blessing or renewal of vows. Get in touch with one of wedding experts who can tell you more about arranging a blessing or renewal of vows in this idyllic archipelago.
If a legal wedding ceremony with a glorious Indian Ocean backdrop is a must, it is possible to get married on the white-sand beaches of Mauritius.
