Romance

Sensual Seychelles, home to the unique Vallée de Mai, claimed by some to be the original site of the Garden of Eden, has long been dubbed the ‘islands of love’ - a place where romance is as natural as the waves caressing the shores of a secret cove at midnight.

Seychelles is a place of safety and serenity, where an astonishingly surreal beauty and a languid pace of life conspire with an enviable tropical climate and welcoming people to provide a unique backdrop for those tender romantic experiences.

Celebrate your special moment with us. Be it a wedding, honeymoon or an anniversary, unforgettable Seychelles holds the key to your dreams of romance in paradise.

Weddings

Legal requirements

Please view the Legal Requirements for Marrying in Seychelles document for more information.

 

Religious Ceremonies

Your dream of a romantic religious wedding in paradise can become reality in Seychelles.

Roman Catholicism is the dominant religion in the country, however there are also Anglican and other Protestant churches, as well as smaller Muslim, Hindu and Bahá’i communities.

In order to organise a religious wedding ceremony you will have to contact the relevant religious body. It is important to note however, that a religious wedding without first conducting a civil ceremony is not recognised under Seychelles law. It will therefore be necessary to conduct a civil ceremony prior to the religious ceremony.

Any one of Seychelles' international tour operators or local ground handling operators will be more than happy to assist you with the organisation of your special day.

The contact details for certain religious bodies in Seychelles, along with that of the Civil Status Office are listed below.
