Weddings in Mauritius Made Simple

Why Get Married in Mauritius?

The tropical island of Mauritius is well established as one of the top honeymoon destinations for wedding couples. But many are now choosing to combine their wedding and honeymoon abroad at a fraction of the cost of a wedding in the UK. We have extensive experience in arranging weddings in Mauritius and can handle all the arrangements for you. The procedure is very simple and with English as the official language of Mauritius this helps making it easy to tie the knot. Unlike many Caribbean resorts that allow multiple ceremonies a day most of the resorts we use in Mauritius only allow only one wedding per day!

Beach Wedding, Barefoot Wedding, Golf Wedding – your personalised wedding

Mauritius is renowned for its palms tree, beautiful white sandy beaches, blue lagoons and plentiful coral reefs offering a choice of idyllic wedding locations. We have arranged many personalised weddings, such as a wedding for a golfing couple on the tee box of the signature 17th hole at Belle Mare Plage Golf resort and romantic barefoot weddings on the beach.

Tailored wedding package and dedicated Wedding co-ordinator

Both In our office and out in Mauritius we have specialist wedding co-ordinators to ensure a problem free process. All of our recommended hotels offer wedding packages and we can tailor these to suit you. They all have dedicated wedding co-ordinators to ensure everything runs smoothly on the day. Once you are out on the island you will be allowed to choose the perfect spot to exchange your vows whether it is in the tropical gardens or on an endless sandy beach.

Only one wedding per day

Not all resorts will guarantee that there will only be one wedding per day at the resort. When we arrange your hotel wedding ceremony we will advise which resorts can guarantee only one wedding per day. This means you can choose to hold your wedding ceremony in an hotel where you don’t have to share your special day with another wedding party.

Separate Accommodation for the Wedding Guests

We can arrange for the wedding guests to stay at a separate hotel from the wedding couple. Guests may want to consider a more economical hotel and the wedding couple may prefer more distance from their guests and that can be arranged. We will provide individual quotes to any guests travelling with you.

Religious Ceremony

We can also help you to arrange a religious ceremony in a church or place of worship of any faith. A civil wedding will need to be conducted before the religious ceremony. Your civil wedding may be performed in Mauritius or in your home country before departure. Please contact us to discuss the options available.

Indian or Chinese Wedding

In Mauritius you have a range of weddings to choose from, including Indian or Chinese styles. Wedding options offered at the Beau Rivage for example include the extravagantly oriental Royal Indian Wedding with a Hindu ceremony presided over by a Civil Officer, followed by a blessing ceremony performed by a Hindu priest.
