4. The Wedding Is Recognized Worldwide
A wedding in Seychelles is recognized worldwide because the wedding certificate is valid everywhere. Therefore, it’s straightforward for people from all over the world to get married in Seychelles. Different countries have different procedures for getting married abroad, so it’s advisable to contact your respective embassy beforehand to check the required process for your wedding. Here are examples of the rules that some countries have:
● All you need is an apostle for the UK and other European countries, which you can obtain two working days after the wedding.
● If you’re from the Philippines, you need to contact the Kenyan Embassy within the first year after the ceremony to commence the report of marriage.
● For Indian citizens, you need to contact the Indian Embassy BEFORE your wedding.
● For UAE residents, bring your certificate to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Dubai.
5. You’re Guaranteed Warm Weather
Thanks to the tropical climate of Seychelles, the weather is warm all year round. The temperature never steers too far from 30℃. However, you need to be mindful of the seasons to decide when to book your wedding. It’s between November and March that tend to have the most rainfall, so you might want to avoid those months.
If glorious weather is vital for you to have at your wedding, you will want to book between June and September. These months are when you’ll have your best shot at sunny, dry weather. Although it’s humid in these months, you also get the coolness from the trade winds to help you from getting too hot.
6. You’re Surrounded By Beauty
When you have a Seychelles beach wedding, the scenery is going to “blow your mind” (yep, we went there again!). Beautiful sandy beaches and turquoise oceans surround you and will make for the most spectacular photos for you to treasure. Not only that but there are many forests and mountains to explore and would also make a fabulous backdrop for your forever-memories!
You’re also in the company of the country’s diverse wildlife. There are various bird species amongst many other animals, but the stand-out animal you’ll see is the Aldabra Giant Tortoise. If you happen to go diving or snorkelling, you’ll also be able to see the great variety of fish that reside in our delightful local coral reefs.
7. Start Your Honeymoon Straight Away
The great thing about having your wedding in Seychelles is that, if you wish, you have your honeymoon location right around the corner. With many islands to choose from, you have the perfect place to start your celebrations without having to hurry away to catch a flight to go elsewhere.
Seychelles is undeniably one of the most romantic settings to have a honeymoon. You have a wide variety of first-class hotels and resorts to choose from, all offering romantic meals using the finest local Creole cuisine. You can also have romantic walks along the beach, which is especially astonishing at sunset when the
