A Maldivian wedding ceremony for all intensive purposes will just be a ceremony. Maldives is a Muslim country which does not offer any other types of religious weddings. A wedding in the Maldives would strictly be for ceremonial purposes unless it is a Muslim wedding that is being planned.
Although not legal binding, Maldivian wedding ceremonies are truly romantic and personal experiences. Each resort island has its own special way of conducting a wedding ceremony to suit its guests.
Your Maldivian wedding ceremony can be tailored to meet your exact requirements. Be it a wedding ceremony just for the two of you or a large gathering big enough to rent out a whole island- Barefoot weddings can coordinate all the necessary arrangements.
A typical Maldivian wedding ceremony starts with a pampering session at one of the island’s heavenly spa’s. At the spa the bride will be pampered to the nines and the makeup artists will work their magic to make the bride a true island beauty.
As you are pampered and made to look your absolute best, the sandy beach will transform into your very own fairytale. Glamorous and chic wedding deco will be set up awaiting your arrival.
Traditional Bodu Beru drums will announce the arrival of the bride. While the groom waits with the Head of Ceremonies, the bride will make her way to her future husband along a pathway of palm leaves.
The beautiful ceremony includes the exchange of rings, a ceremonial wedding certificate and the traditional cutting of an exquisite cake as well as wedding photography.
After your dream ceremony, you will be carried away on a romantic sunset cruise whilst enjoying champagne and canapés.
