ONE WEDDING A DAY THE BEACHCOMBER EXPERIENCE Exchanging vows in far flung places may be daunting but there is no need to worry as Beachcomber Hotels are specialists in weddings and will look after you every step of the way. We guarantee just one wedding a day at each of our hotels in Mauritius and Seychelles, which is one of the main reasons why a wedding with Beachcomber Hotels is so appealing and unique. To make your wedding as easy as possible, each hotel has its very own wedding planner to assist you. From the moment you arrive at any of our Beachcomber Hotels you will be greeted by the wedding planner who will take you through every step of your big day to ensure that it is enjoyable and stress free. They all have fabulous contact books with a host of florists, photographers and musicians to help make your day special, be it a glamorous ceremony or simply vows taken barefoot in the sand. Beachcomber was the first hotel group in Mauritius and has hand picked the prime locations and beaches for each of its hotels. In the Seychelles, Beachcomber owns the exclusive Sainte Anne Resort & Spa which is the only property on the private paradise island of Sainte Anne. You are sure to find your dream wedding location be it on the beach or in a lush tropical garden setting.

LAURENCE & JACKIE LLEWELYN-BOWEN A wedding at any Beachcomber Hotel will be special. Now, by teaming up with renowned designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and his wife Jackie, wedding guru and author of Debrett’s Wedding Etiquette Guide, we are delighted to further enhance the Beachcomber experience. Laurence has created an exclusive wedding gazebo and Jackie has helped us to create our two superb wedding packages, the Classic and the Luxury to suit every taste and budget. “ Your wedding day should be the most important day of your life. Everything just has to be perfect. This is why we’ve teamed up with Beachcomber on a mission to take the paradise that is Mauritius and make it even better so that your celebration is exquisite in every detail. We love Mauritius for its beauty, its glamour and its courtesy which is why we chose to mark our twenty years of marriage on this fabulous island in the elegant surroundings of the Beachcomber group. And ever since then we’ve gone out of our way to encourage more and more couples to share what really was the perfect wedding.”

It is important to therefore advise us before you book to confirm if and how many of your group we can accommodate.

In some circumstances you may have to wait a day or so for it, (if it needs to be stamped with an apostil) but providing you are not returning home immediately after your wedding, the certificate will be ready for you to come home with.
