Looking to renew your vows? We can help you celebrate this special moment!
Although we cannot arrange a legal wedding ceremony in the Maldives, we can assist in celebrating (the renewal of) wedding vows. We are flexible and can arrange your special moment as per your wishes.
Not sure what to do? We’re glad you asked! We suggest the following:
The ceremony setup will be on the beach / the sandbank at the end of the island (if the weather permits). You could be dressed in traditional Maldivian attire at the hotel and we will be dropping you off at the tip of the island by small boat or motorbike.
Our staff will receive you from that point and escort you to the area of the event, which will be decorated with a tropical theme and flowers. For this walk, you will be accompanied by a group of traditional Maldivian drummers (boduberu) that will be drumming and singing traditional Maldivian/Dhivehi songs.
After you take a seat at the area, the drummers will take a break while the facilitator shares a few words and invites you to exchange your vows.
Throughout the vows, we will be playing soft music and at the moment of exchanging rings, we will be throwing flowers as well. When the vows have been made, you can then move on to the small cake and the bottle of non-alcoholic sparkling wine (unfortunately it’s illegal to serve alcohol on local islands). The professional photographer will be capturing your moments throughout the ceremony and afterwards, it is up to both of you on whether you’d like to spend some extra time by the beach for an extended photoshoot. On availability and request, we will also be using our drone to complement the photographer’s pictures with aerial shots (from the journey to the end of the island till the end of the photoshoot).
After the photo session, we will move back to the hotel where you will plant a coconut tree together. We will have your names written on plaque by the tree. This marks the end of the ceremony.
Around 7:00 PM, you will have a private romantic dinner on the beach (if the weather permits) – the chef will be preparing an exclusive a la carte meal.
That sums up our typical ceremony. We are of course happy to add any items to accommodate special requests – if you have something in mind, please don’t hesitate to ask and we’ll do our best to see if it can be done.
