A beautiful collection of islands offering an unspoilt and uncommercialised atmosphere – perfect for a destination wedding. Deserted tropical beaches aren’t hard to come by, and the selection of gorgeous venues give you so many options to plan the wedding of your dreams.
Cerf Island and Bird Island come highly recommended from many couples who chose to marry in the peace and tranquility of the Seychelles. With no tv, no cars and no roads, it really does offer the opportunity for you and your guests to escape from the technologies and fuss of the everyday world. Imagine a ceremony on the white sand beaches with the ocean as your backdrop, walking up a lantern-lit aisle to your loved one under a floral archway. Or perhaps a glamorous affair in an exquisite hotel where every need is catered for, from relaxing spa treatments before the day to a romantic reception with all your friends and family.
You’ll find many wedding planners happy to help organise your Seychelles wedding and often recommend it as a quieter alternative to a Caribbean celebration. Every wedding is unique after all.
Civil marriage ceremonies in the Seychelles are actually some of the simplest to arrange as far as destination weddings go. You’ll just need a valid passport and birth certificate which need to be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance for copy and checks, as the couples getting married must travel with the originals. Ideally if you can fly out a few days before the day this gives you a chance to relax and allow your wedding plans to come together with no added travelling stress. No need to worry about the safety of your fragile items either, such as the dress or suits – airlines are particularly considerate and often mark cases appropriately with extra packaging.
