The enduring appeal of the Maldives is instantly recognisable in the vibrant blue lagoons and colourful reefs wrapped around picture-perfect atolls; paradise islands seemingly designed for romance.
Unveiling their new Wedding Pavilion, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru have used the natural beauty of their surroundings to create the ultimate venue. Accessible only by boat, the overwater pavilion is elevated over a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, popping with tropical fish and ancient sea turtles. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors give the impression of floating atop the water and a glass aisle to the altar invites the marine world inside. Set above a turtle enclosure, the bride, groom and up to 16 guests can marvel at these magnificent creatures dancing below their feet.
Located just off the northeast tip of the island, the pavilion is ideal for intimate ceremonies and a dedicated wedding co-ordinator can help couples personalise the space with flowers, candles and flowing fabrics. Of course, the resort caters for many differing tastes and the powder-soft sandy beach and renowned restaurants also provide spectacular settings for a tropical island wedding.
