Beach! Beach! Beach!

How long does it take to get there?
Around 12 hours from London.

What time of year is best?
Visiting from late December through until April should ensure you’ll miss the monsoon seasons (May-October and again November-April).

Legal considerations?
It’s not possible under local law for visitors to be married in the Maldives. However, it is possible to have a civil ceremony at home, followed by a romantic blessing or renewal of vows ceremony on the beach to celebrate your marriage. The experts at Dream Weddings suggest an alternative would be to get married in Sri Lanka, before crossing the Indian Ocean by seaplane for a honeymoon in the Maldives.

Anything else?
The airport is located on its very own island and makes for a beautiful descent into the Maldives.
