It’s not hard to picture the romance of the Seychelles’ white sand beaches and crystal waters but a wedding in the Seychelles could also be the stress-free option.
If you’re looking for uninterrupted blue skies the best time of year to book your Seychelles wedding is from April to October. This is the islands’ dry season when it is not unusual to have dry spells of two weeks or more.
The Seychelles is world-famous for its powder white sand beaches framed by distinctive granite boulders, leading into calm clear waters. Anse Lazio on Praslin is often ranked in the top 10 beaches of the world.
Other dramatic locations for weddings on the island include its numerous picturesque Roman Catholic churches and beautiful colonial mansions.
We will plan with you in advance any personal requests such as flower preferences, cake choices and music. We can also organise the photographer, wedding video, table decorations, or even a live band to play for you.
Your day, your way
By law you are required to arrive in the Seychelles several days before your wedding giving you the perfect opportunity to look at the wedding venue options and choose the one that’s right for you.
