Maldives Resort Opens Special Wedding Pavilion
Getting married in the UK can be hugely expensive. The average cost of a wedding in the UK is just over £20,000, so it is no surprise that many couples are opting to head off to tropical shores for their nuptials at a fraction of the price. Indian Ocean destinations such as the Maldives are a popular choice for couples wishing to tie the knot abroad, and many resorts have dedicated wedding planners on hand to take care of all the arrangements for the big day.
With special pavilions for the ceremony and honeymoon suites for the happy couple, resorts know how to woo guests. And one Maldivian resort is going one step further to tempt couples through the doors to exchange their vows.
Overwater Wedding Pavilion
The Four Seasons’ Landaa Giraavaru Resort in the Maldives has just opened a luxurious overwater wedding pavilion where couples can say their vows in style. This beautiful pavilion includes a glass-bottomed aisle over the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
The pavilion has to be reached by boat, but it promises to provide the most stunning backdrop for wedding photos.
The Perfect Venue
For those who want a spectacular venue for their wedding, the pillared structure is the ideal choice. With high ceilings and the glass aisle over a turtle enclosure, this is a stunning place to get married and one that will delight you and your guests. The pavilion can cater for the couple and up to sixteen guests, and it can be decorated with candles and flowers according to the couple’s colour scheme and preferences. The resort wedding planner is available to take care of this in advance.
The Four Seasons is already one of the top destinations for wedding holidays with couples from the UK and other parts of the world, and management is working hard to ensure that they continue to attract new visitors. The resort’s vice president and general manager Armando Kraenzlin said, “Landaa’s wild natural beauty has hosted so many incredible weddings and celebrations. Our UNESCO Biosphere Reserve location really sets us apart, and our vision with the new wedding pavilion was to incorporate this in a way that surpassed anything we’d offered before. Now wedding couples can surround themselves by – and draw inspiration from – the power, possibility and abundant beauty of the ocean.”
The Maldives is an ideal destination for couples who want to get married in style. The beauty of this tropical nation offers the opportunity for stunning photographs and the year-round warm weather means there is no need to worry about what time of year you get married in.
The many five-star resorts provide superb accommodation and fine dining as well as plenty of land- and water-based activities that can be enjoyed during the honeymoon. All in all, the Seychelles is a truly wonderful place for luxury wedding holidays.
