Can I Legally get Married in The Maldives?

Sadly, non-residents are not able to legally marry in the Maldives. However, that does not mean that the Maldives does not make a fantastic destination to renew your vows or to celebrate a symbolic wedding blessing. They have lots of venues to choose from across the Four Seasons, LUX* and Anantara Kihavah

Therefore, if you formally marry in the UK, it can feel like a wedding when you have the non-legal symbolic blessing on the beach in the Maldives. Perfect!
