Beach Wedding in Mauritius

Beach Wedding in Mauritius

 

Getting married on the beach with the turquoise sea and a sandy beach in the background – that is the idea of a perfect wedding for many couples. The tropical island paradise of Mauritius is located in the Indian Ocean and offers the perfect setting for an unforgettable wedding on the beach and a romantic honeymoon afterwards, due to the constantly warm climate, crystal clear water and heavenly sandy beaches.

The list of different locations for a beach wedding is long. The first option we propose is to celebrate your wedding, either civil or symbolic at the beach in front of your own beach villa. Most of the Mauritian beach villas require you to book the villa for a minimum of five nights.  If you do not want to rent a beach villa, you can also celebrate your wedding on one of our proposed small islands. Another option, we offer to arrange the ceremony either on a public beach or directly at our hotel. Please contact us via the contact form if you need guidance for a hotel with a suitable beach for your wedding or if you have further questions.

In case you are not yet sure if you prefer to celebrate a civil or symbolic wedding, click here to learn about the difference.

Wedding in your private Beach Villa

If you want to celebrate your wedding only with your close family or friends, we suggest booking one of our beach villas. We have selected all the villas carefully ourselves to ensure they are perfectly suited for a tranquil dream wedding on the beach right in front of your doorstep. A ceremony at your private beach villa can only host a maximum of 12 people. House owners permitting a ceremony with more guests than they offer beds is very rare.

Wedding on a desert island

Enjoy a day in paradise like never before, having a wonderful wedding day on the secluded and stunning Island Ile aux Cerfs (Deer Island) which is located off the East coast of Mauritius in the largest coral-reef lagoon and can be reached by boat from the small fishing village of Trou d'eau Douce. It offers picturesque surroundings in a wild setting of natural beauty. Experience this blissful heaven of pure relaxation, and get mesmerized by the turquoise blue sea water and white marvelously white sandy beaches fringed by Casuarina trees. The south-east of the island is less touristy and there are numerous idyllic beaches, which are excellent for smaller wedding celebrations. Once populated by cerfs (deers, that were imported for hunting in the 17th century), the picturesque island now offers a golf course, three restaurants and lots of water sports activities.

Wedding on a rustic island

Ile aux Benitiers

Located on the southwest coast, the offshore island of Île aux Benitiers is a popular destination often associated with dolphin swimming. Overlooking Le Morne, this island provides a gorgeous backdrop for a beautiful beach wedding. Benitiers Island is located off the villages of La Gaulette and Le Morne and can be circumnavigated in about an hour's walk. You can take a boat to the island from both Le Morne and La Gaulette. The boat trip takes about 15 minutes because the water is very shallow, especially at low tide.

Important info for a wedding ceremony, both civil and symbolic, on Benitiers Island :

  • The bride and groom (and their wedding guests, if any) must walk the last stretch from the boat to the island through the water. This is 10 to 40 meters, depending on the tide. If the bride has a long wedding dress and the groom has a fancy suit, a wedding on this island is rather not advisable.

  • There are no toilets on the island.

Wedding on a
platform at sea

Not exactly a boat but also "swims on the ocean", this chapel can be found in the north of Mauritius, to be more precise in Balaclava. It can host the bridal couple and a maximum of 10 invited guests. The wooden platform is ideal between October & April because of a constant nice breeze. After the ceremony you can choose either a romantic dinner at the beach or a table in one of the best sushi restaurants of the island.

Getting married on the beach of your hotel 

It is also possible to get married on the beach of your own hotel with our help. We have already organized weddings in countless hotels. In most hotels there is a minimum length of stay.  Upon presentation of the marriage certificate, many hotels also offer a honeymoon package which must be booked before departure - the marriage certificate can then be presented at the reception on the day of the wedding.

Help with the legal part of the civil wedding

Is your wedding already organised, but your hotel does not offer help with the legal part of a civil wedding? Here we can help! For 620 euros we take care of the following:

 

  • 11 to 6 weeks before the wedding date you send us the necessary documents by email (in PDF). We will forward them, together with the application to marry, to the Civil Status Office in Port Louis.

  • We make sure that the Civil Status Office and the Registrar have received all the documents correctly and arrange a personal appointment for you 2-3 working days before your wedding date.

  • Two to three working days before your wedding date, we will travel with you to the Central Civil Status Office in Port Louis, where your documents will be checked for accuracy. Afterwards we will go to the registrar of the district of your wedding location, who will discuss the course of the ceremony with you and agree with you on the exact time of the wedding (from Monday to Friday between 16:15 and 17:00, weekend and public holiday according to your wish).

  • On your wedding day, the registrar will come to you and hold the wedding ceremony, which will last approximately 20 minutes. 2 witnesses are compulsory and can be provided by us should you be travelling alone.

  • After the wedding, we take the wedding certificate to the Prime Minister to have it notarised. With the certification stamp (Apostille), the certificate becomes valid in the home country. You will receive the original 2-3 working days after the wedding or we will send it to you free of charge by post to your home country if you have already left. This can take 2-3 weeks. You then present the wedding certificate to your registry office for the registration of the wedding.
