Beach weddings in the Maldives

Beach Weddings in the Maldives | Featuring Outrigger Konotta Maldives

If you’re looking for a picture-perfect tropical island paradise in which to hold your beach wedding then the Maldives is very possibly the destination for you.

Comprised of over 1000 tiny islands scattered across 90,000 square kilometres of Indian Ocean, Asia’s smallest country is also its most romantic: the Maldives are the stuff beach wedding dreams are made of, where clear ocean stretches endlessly to the horizon and newly-weds enjoy complete escape and privacy.

When to go

Although temperatures are a balmy 30 degrees Celsius throughout the year, the Maldives has a tropical monsoon climate and couples are advised to host their wedding during the dry season which runs between December and April.

Marriage requirements

With such a thriving wedding industry you may be surprised to discover that only local residents can legally marry in the Maldives. Therefore all couples travelling from abroad to get married here will need to acquire their legal marriage certificate at home before celebrating with a romantic beach wedding ceremony and blessing in the Maldives. For this reason the Maldives is also a great destination for couples seeking to Renew their Vows.

A buggy decorated with palm leaves escorted the couple to the beautiful venue of the ceremony. Traditional Maldivian music enchanted the romantic ambience as the couple held hands and walked through the entrance. It was followed by the ring and wow exchange ceremony. An official wedding certificate was given by the resort.
