The Seychelles, a dream wedding destination
What style of wedding?
Beach weddings are spectacular. The Seychelles is made up of 115 islands, so there are plenty of secluded beaches perfect for your special day.
How long does it take to get there?
Around 10 hours from the UK.
What time of year is best?
May to October is great for weddings. Monsoon rains kick in from November to February, bringing with them hot and humid weather.
The paperwork is quite standard: passports, birth certificates, any certificates relating to previous marriages or name changes. You also need an affadavit stating you are free to marry. There is a residency requirement of three days.
It’s easy to arrange religious ceremonies, see www.seychelles.travel/en/home/religious_ceremonies
