Getting Married in the Maldives

If you dream of getting married on a tropical island standing barefoot on the beach, then why not consider the Maldives. Sitting right in the middle of the azure Indian Ocean, this group of islands are the ultimate in romance. With powder white beaches, deep blue skies, a sweet aroma of flowers and mesmerising sunsets, this really is paradise. It's also a place with an age old fusion of traditions and cultures and where new meets old with modern concrete buildings sitting amidst carefully preserved Islamic temples and palaces. With a huge array of stunning resorts in which to hold your ceremony al fresco and plenty of gorgeous palm fringed beaches looking out to crystal blue waters, weddings abroad in the Maldives suit the most discerning of couples. Why not stay in one of the famous over water bungalows where you'll be so pampered that you'll want to extend your stay to include your honeymoon period too.



Marriage Requirements


Unfortunately local law doesn't allow for non Muslims to get married in the Maldives but it is possible for couples to organise non religious wedding ceremonial events of their choice.
