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.

Wedding formalities and documents

ORIGINALS of the following documents MUST be brought with you to the Seychelles. But to allow for processing by the Seychelles Civil Status Office, please send us the following documentation at least 6 weeks prior to your wedding date:

• Copies of both Birth Certificates
• Copies of both passport’s personal identity pages, plus the previous six stamped pages.
• If married before, copy of the Marriage Certificate with the appropriate Decree Absolute.
• If widowed, copy of the Marriage Certificate with the appropriate Death Certificate.
• If either of you has legally changed your name, a copy of the Deed Poll.

Couples must reside in the Seychelles at least 2 working days prior to getting married and 7 days after getting married for us to be able to issue the Wedding Certificate. Wedding ceremonies are conducted by the Registrar subject to their availability and in accordance with Seychelles law.

Ceremonies last about 10-15 minutes and can take place between Monday and Friday, excluding Public Holidays, Saturday & Sunday.

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 Seychelles 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.
