With a wide range of island resorts to choose from where you can enjoy everything from a couple’s retreat to a beach wedding, Maldives has become one of the most popular romantic destinations in the world. One of the great highlights here is the accommodation options available, be it a private bungalow by the beach or a luxurious water villa right above the ocean, perfect for island intimacy.

Island Vows

The day you dreamed of is finally here. The wind whispers sweet nothings and the promise of romance all around you. You take a step on this unique aisle of sand; the feel of soft sand between your toes offers a wonderful sensation. Instead of a typical wedding march tune, an ocean serenade surrounds you, Mother Nature’s own song of love. And as the sun paints the skies in hues of crimson and gold, the breathtaking beauty that envelops the landscape is momentarily forgotten; for there up ahead, is the one you have pledged your life to, the one you will be beginning a bold new adventure with; the one who you have given your heart to and received theirs in return. Weddings don’t get any more magical than this, and in Maldives, that is exactly what you can expect!

Be it organising a beach wedding or beginning your new chapter of love at a luxury honeymoon resort, Maldives provides plenty of options for those looking to experience exotic island charm. While marriage ceremonies are not legally binding, couples can look to celebrate their big day with a special ceremony. Some resorts such as Kandolhu Island Maldives even offer renewal of vow ceremonies for couples wanting to renew their commitment to each other.

Apart from the beach which offers the perfect island backdrop for a wedding, the Maldives also gives couples a chance to add some unique touches to their special day. One such feature is to have traditional Boduberu drummers incorporated into the ceremony, adding their own characteristic beat to the proceedings. Your wedding doesn’t have to be on land either; for something, totally unique couples can even organise a special ceremony on a dhoni (traditional Maldivian boat) or a luxury yacht, amidst the sight of the setting sun. End the day with dinner under the stars and by the shore, toasting the beginning of a new chapter of love.

The capital of France has consistently been recognised as one of the most romantic destinations in the world.

It is truly one of the most iconic cities in existence and its most famed monument, the Eiffel Tower, is instantly recognisable by almost anyone in the civilised world. Given the nature of the city, it is a guaranteed feature in any luxury travel guide with examples such as The Luxury Travel Channel.

Since there’s a lot to see within the city, it’s best to start off your adventure with a good breakfast.

There are many great cafes and restaurants to choose from within Paris, such as Le Bal Cafe which is situated within a building that used to be a 1920s dance hall.

Once you’ve indulged in some Parisian cuisine, take a walk along Pont Neuf. It’s the city’s iconic standing bridge and the oldest of its kind within Paris, having been built in the 17th century.

You could further explore the historic architecture of Paris by visiting the legendary Notre Dame cathedral, situated in St.Michel’s district.

You could also visit another monument since the Arc de Triomphe is just around the corner.

Lost in love, lost in each other’s gaze, you enjoy pure solitude in your own little slice of paradise.

It is the perfect complement to what Maldives romantic resorts have to offer couples, along with beach weddings that can be enjoyed at such island resorts as Adaaran Prestige Water Villas.

Western Wedding

Thailand, an exotic land that holds many wonders for all different types of travellers, be it the adventurous or the romantic. If you’re one of the latter and wish to make your love story legal in Thailand, there are more than a couple of beach destinations choose from. We have picked out the crème de la crème of these, so read on to find out.

Koh Samui- This beautiful island, the second largest in Thailand, has for many years been a top choice when it comes to choosing a beach wedding venue in Thailand, and with its many pristine beaches and the lush mountainous rainforest, it’s no wonder why. Koh Samui has also been ranked among the most romantic destinations in the world.

Phuket- Home of some of Thailand’s best beaches from Mai Khao to Freedom Beach, and Banana Beach, Phuket is the very definition of what a tropical island should be. Being the largest island in Thailand, Phuket acts as a gateway to many of the southern islands such as the Similan Islands and the Phi Phi Islands. Being the largest also means there’s plenty of room for all, so you can find many quiet and secluded beaches like Bang Tao and Surin. And the reason why Phuket wins over Samui is that there are many airlines offering domestic flights from the mainland as well as from direct international flights. And if you want your beach wedding to be one of absolute extravagance and luxury, wedding venues such as those by Anantara Hotels, Resort & Spa; come with many facilities as well as special beach wedding offers, so you will be saving a little too.

Hua Hin- Though it doesn’t have many gorgeous beaches as much as Samui and Phuket, Hua Hin is definitely one of the top contenders for beach destinations in Thailand. Its strongest point lies in being the closest to the capital by 3 hours. Thus your guests can conveniently travel to and fro from Bangkok. Hua Hin is also home to many beautiful buildings such as the stunning train station, which can be the backdrop for your wedding pre-shoot.
