It’s not just the coastline lovers who are sold to the idea of a beach wedding, it’s also those who are looking for a dream wedding and at an even dreamier destination. Beach weddings have been popular for reasons aplenty. But when the destination is as wondrous as the Soneva Fushi in the Maldives, one needs no other reason apart from that one.
Trust Soneva Fushi to provide a one-of-a-kind canvas to turn your big day into an extremely special one. Their dedicated team will ensure every little detail is taken care of to make it the perfect day for you. While you can opt for a conventional do at the picturesque resort, the venue itself offers you four uncommon packages specially designed for the wedding ceremony. We take a look at each one of them and what makes each one of them steal the spotlight.
THE SANDBANK EXPERIENCE
A ceremony by the private sandbank offers the ultimate desert island setting, along with ample space to accommodate all large groups of guests. Step off the traditional boat and take the Maldivian dhow to arrive amid the smiles, love, and cheers of your friends and family awaiting on the shore. A backdrop of the arch made from fallen island blooms and the gentle waves washing off the shore make saying ‘I do’ even more memorable.
Wed In The Bloom
An intimate, evening ceremony in the beachfront garden of the larger villas is ideal for a serene, romantic ceremony. The garden becomes a beguiling haven when lit by numerous glowing lanterns and candles. Tie the knot under the candlelit canopy beneath the stars as you let the nature-regaling background score of chirps and chirrups set the tone.
Take Turtle Beach To Be Your Aisle
When a cool, glass-walled yoga room transforms into a wedding venue, it sure has ‘special’ written all over it. Settled atop the rich greens of the islands and cool blues of the ocean, the venue offers views to die for. Witness the beginning of the journey of a lifetime as you become one with nature in this quaint setting.
Take the plunge
For those whose middle name is unconventional and adventurous, take the plunge into the underwater scuba ceremony. Step into a boat filled with petals and get into the azure blue water with your loved one. Exchange vows in absolute seclusion with only a waterproof audio player as the background score.
A gorgeous wedding ceremony is not complete without a great dining experience. Gather together with your near and dear ones to have a wedding reception under the skies at Sobah, a traditional Maldivian restaurant on an uninhabited island. Or perch up the lofty, banana tree canopy at Soneva Fushi’s ‘Fresh in the Garden’ organic restaurant that serves delectable meals prepared with freshly picked produce from their own garden. If private and secluded is your vibe, then have your reception spread laid out amidst the glow of a hundred lanterns at the Finolhu dinner by the beach. One can also opt for a thrilling jungle dining experience surrounded by the rich flora of the islands. The ultimate 360-degree sensory experience begins with being blindfolded and transported to a secret jungle location, where you can have a time of your life with your wedding guests.
Wash off the sumptuous meal with the finest champagne and the Maldives’ best selection of spirits at the beach bar ‘By the Bar.’ Raise a toast to your union and mark the perfect end to an unforgettable day!
