Symbolic or official wedding ceremonies

The wedding ceremony can be performed both symbolically and officially. In the latter case, the newlyweds receive a stamp in their passport and a Seychelles marriage certificate. Regardless of the ceremony type, this moment will be remembered for a lifetime.

More often, the venue for the ceremony is the ocean beach or a tropical garden nearby. Moreover, you can have a wedding at the hotel.

The most popular islands for joining two hearts in love are Mahe, La Digue and Praslin, where couple can get married officially. The ceremony may also be held on the other wonderful Seychelles islands by agreement. Some of them are uninhabited, so couples will fully enjoy holidays in naturally romantic surroundings of pristine beaches and silent attendance.

Documents required for civil marriage in Seychelles

• Copies of birth of a groom and a bride.
• Copies of passports for both.
• Certificate of divorce and surname change (if there are marriages earlier).
• Consent from parents (if one of the spouses is not 18 years old).

Copies of the documents must be in English, notarized and attached to the originals. In the case of remote filing, copies must be sent to Seychelles by delivery service or by e-mail. The minimum period for submitting papers is 21 days before the expected date.

To marry, the bride and the groom must go to the local Civil Status registry office and leave a record in the registration book in the presence of two witnesses.

Perfect time for getting married in Seychelles

Seychelles can boast warm and sunny weather all year round. However, it is better to choose a dry season so that the rain does not overshadow the ceremony. These are the periods from February to May and from October to December.

Tropical style wedding

A wedding in a tropical paradise makes its own adjustments to the image of the bride and groom. The long fluffy dresses of the bride are replaced by airy ones, while the groom's business suit - by light pants or even shorts. In such clothes, you`ll be free to pose for photos, so the pictures turn out more lively and natural-looking.

In Seychelles, you can look at the bride’s traditional accessory - a bouquet - in a different way. It is vibrant bright tropical flowers instead of classical ones with an intense scent. In some cases, bouquets are made up of the treasures of the sea bottom- shells, stars, corals. It turns out an amazing composition! If the bride and groom are still adherents of classical traditions, it is worth choosing an ordinary bouquet with flowers that tolerate the heat well.
