Marry in super-luxe style with One&Only
As the rain continues to pour this summer on UK shores, a new wedding ceremony on the sun-drenched Indian Ocean island of Mauritius has caught our attention.
One&Only Le Saint Géran’s Shipwrecked In Style package is, frankly, all our wedding abroad fantasies come true. It kicks off with a 60-minute massage for two in a private garden pavilion, followed by a mani, pedi and hair appointment for the bride.
Groomed to perfection, couples board a boat and skim across the shimmering turquoise lagoon to deserted private island Ilot Malneaux, for an intimate ceremony barefoot on the sun-warmed sand.
And it gets better. On return to the mainland, newlyweds clink glasses during a champagne toast, cut their two-tier cake and plant a tree to mark the day. You and your new husband are then whisked away for a sunset cruise around the lagoon’s coral islets.
Back on dry land, a candle-lit four-course supper whipped up by a personal chef will be waiting for you on the beach beneath the stars, while the waves breaking on the shore provide the ultimate soundtrack to romance.
Shipwrecked in Style package from £2065 for two. Seven nights at One&Only Le Saint Géran, from £2069pp incl. flights wandotravel.com
