Your wedding should be one of the most memorable and enjoyable days of your life, so you should make sure you are able to relax and take it all in. One good way to do this is to book a holiday in Mauritius and let someone else take care of organising the ceremony.
Jetting off to the Indian Ocean island paradise will mean you can exchange your vows on a private white sand beach, with the clear blue sea lapping against the shore. Or you could become man and wife in a tranquil garden setting in the grounds of an upmarket resort. Either way, it will be a special event for bride, groom and guests.
After posing for some photos in the beautiful location, you can look forward to cake and champagne, before tucking into a sumptuous dinner. You won't have to worry about where to go on honeymoon, as you will already be in one of the great destinations for sunshine getaways.
Book your wedding in Mauritius at one of the resorts below and the event will be organised for you. All you will need to worry about is remembering to bring your documents, who to invite and, of course, what to wear on the big day.
Royal Palm Hotel
Located close to the lively village of Grand Baie on the stunning north-west coast, the Royal Palm is renowned as one of the best hotels in Mauritius. You will find scores of glowing reviews from satisfied customers online and, once you arrive for your wedding and honeymoon, you'll understand why.
It has just 84 luxury suites, giving it an exclusive feel, and as there are three times as many staff as guests, you will receive the highest levels of service. The resort has the facilities to match, with three high-class restaurants and private dining available, a Clarins spa and the opportunity to take part in a variety of sports.
The Royal Palm never stages more than one wedding a day, so you can be certain the staff are focused on making sure your ceremony and celebrations are perfect. Once it's all over, you can relax in glorious surroundings and enjoy an upmarket honeymoon.
Dinarobin Hotel Golf & Spa
Another of Mauritius's finest hotels, the Dinarobin boasts an idyllic location in between the Indian Ocean and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Le Morne, a wooded mountain that was once home to escaped slaves. Wherever you turn, there are wonderful views to take in.
Interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and his wife Jackie, the author of Debrett's Wedding Guide, helped to create stylish marriage packages for the resort's owner Beachcomber Hotels, so you can be sure your big day there will be special. The couple like the venue so much that they even chose to renew their own vows there.
The Dinarobin boasts high-quality accommodation, eight restaurants, a golf course, a Clarins spa and lots of facilities for water sports. So, if you wish to do more than relax on the beach during your honeymoon, you will have plenty of choice.
Le Canonnier Hotel Mauritius
The beachside setting of this upmarket resort is among the most beautiful places you could hope to get married. The Le Canonnier Hotel Mauritius organises a maximum of one wedding ceremony a day, so you won't have to share the idyllic surroundings as you exchange your vows.
It is also an excellent choice for a honeymoon, as the complex has a relaxed atmosphere and a great white sand beach, together with high-class facilities. As well as comfortable rooms, two restaurants and a pair of bars, it has a wellness centre and a selection of sports available.
