From the bridal preparation and ceremony set up to the moment you say “I do”, the island has created a number of wedding experiences that to create a memorable experience, with traditional boduberu dancing, an intimate candle-lit dinner with a private chef and waiter, or a ceremony that takes place on a secluded sandbank known, quite aptly, as “Dream Island”
This idyllic sandbank, just off Hurawalhi, is the perfect location for an unforgettable beach wedding, with only the lapping of the waves interrupting your sweet nothings as you walk barefoot down the flower petals-sprinkled isle.
To complement the picture-perfect sandbank, which is surrounded by the most crystal of waters, the package includes a decorated venue, fresh flower bouquet and headpiece for her, buttonhole for him, champagne and wedding cake, three-course candlelight dinner, live rhythms of Boduberu drummers; the indulgence continues the next day with an in-villa champagne breakfast.
For sunset lovers, you could choose to tie the knot at Champagne Pavillion, Hurawalhi’s prime sunset-watching spot, or, for the perfect combination of tranquillity and thrill, take it to the ocean and wed your sweetheart aboard a yacht.
At the end of the day, a romantic turndown service waits in your tropical sanctuary, be that amid lush vegetation on the beach or propped above the lagoon’s tranquil waters, lending an extraordinary backdrop to a once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
