Weddings in the Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean Weddings

Each year more and more British couples choose tropical shores for their wedding venue. As experts in both luxury travel and weddings, it comes as no surprise to us at Kenwood Travel to learn that The Indian Ocean is one of the most popular places in the world to tie the knot.

The beautiful islands of the Seychelles and Mauritius are that rare combination of tropical beachfront escapism and quiet, secluded tranquillity. There’s no danger of having to share your special occasion with anyone other than those that matter.

Personalise your ceremony by choosing to stage it indoors or out, with sand-between-your-toes weddings on the beach always a big hit, while chic marquee venues add that air of sophistication to proceedings. Indian Ocean holiday resorts specialising in weddings offer wedding consultants who will organise every detail for you, from dinner menus to flower bouquets. 

Good to know

As an added bonus, we offer free wedding services at hotels such as Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort, where only the registration legal fees have to be paid. And our Indian Ocean wedding specialists have lined up other special offers too; Brides stay free on seven-night Bed & Breakfast bookings at The Residence Mauritius. Browse our full Indian Ocean Weddings range below, or call the Kenwood Travel team today to find out more.

Questions about your wedding

Your Kenwood Travel wedding specialist is available every step of the way to ensure your wedding day goes off without a hitch. Whether it’s arranging legal requirements, or tricky things like how to pack your wedding dress for the flight, we know the questions that are important to you. We’ve answered some of these questions below, but for anything else we’re just a phone call away. With our 40-year track record arranging destination weddings, nothing is a problem. Our first-hand knowledge of hotels and the great relationships we have with in-resort wedding coordinators means you can rest assured that we have everything under control. Our aim is to make booking your wedding hassle-free and fun.

Will my wedding abroad be legal in the UK?

Yes, it will be legal under British Law, and you do not have to register it when you get back to the UK. Your wedding ceremony will be non-denominational. You must be 18 years or older to book a wedding package with Kenwood Travel, and unless otherwise stated we will offer you a civil wedding.

Can I get married abroad if I have been divorced?

Yes, all you need is your Decree Absolute, for which you must have the original document and take this with you when you travel.

What about my wedding dress what’s the best way to transport it?

Most bridal shops will carefully pack your dress in a specially designed travel box or cabin carry-on suitcase which fits in the overhead locker on the plane. On arrival at the hotel we recommend you hang up your dress as soon as possible to help any creases drop. Your in-resort wedding coordinator should also be able to provide a steamer.

Can I get married on the beach?

Yes, all of the hotels on our destination wedding portfolio offer various venue options which include beautiful ocean-view gazebos, tropical gardens and, of course, soft sandy beaches. The choice is yours.

Will my wedding date and time be booked before I arrive?

Yes, your wedding date will be booked and all the necessary paperwork prepared before jetting off for your destination wedding.

Can my wedding guests be added to my booking?

Yes, we’ll be happy to coordinate all persons onto the same booking, and we can also suggest nearby hotels should your guests wish to stay at a different accommodation.

It is just going to be the two us; will we need witnesses?

Yes, witnesses will be required, but your in-resort wedding coordinator will arrange this for you.

Can I get hair and make-up done in the hotel?

Yes, all of the hotels we work with either have a spa or can provide an in-room hairdresser/beautician. Your in-resort wedding coordinator will arrange all this for you and provide a menu of
