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 beach wedding 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 beach wedding on one of our proposed small islands. Another option, we offer to arrange the ceremony either on a public beach or directly at your 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.

Beach Wedding in your Private 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.
Beach wedding on a chic little island
The Coco Island (Île des deux Cocos) is located in the southeast of Mauritius – in Blue Bay. Ile Des Deux Cocos has long been the best keep secret in Mauritius. This totally secluded private island boasts a one-of-a-kind Moroccan inspired villa, a picture-perfect beach and outstanding personal service for a wedding experience unique in the whole world. Between the unobstructed views, a picturesque villa and the team of dedicated staff, you can pretty much live out your ultimate castaway fantasy. Your wedding on the beach of Île des Deux Cocos will be a unique and unforgettable life-time experience.

Beach 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
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 at the beach of 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.
