Maldivian Wedding Celebration: The Maldives is one of the top wedding destinations of choice for many couples, but for some the exotic beach wedding is an unfulfilled dream. Angsana Velavaru, a stylish and contemporary resort situated in the South Nilandhe Atolls, is offering engaged couples a complimentary dream wedding to be celebrated in its beachfront pavilion with sweeping views of the ocean. The only commitment required from each couple for the complimentary wedding service is a five night booking at the resort.
The Wedding Experience offers the assistance of Angsana Velavaru’s wedding planner to design a carefully crafted Maldivian wedding celebration, with the traditional Maldivian drummers (bodhu beru) being a popular favourite. Both the groom and the bride are presented with flowers, a wedding cake, a selection of canapés for the ceremony and a bottle of champagne. Memories are captured forever in a CD of pictures and a framed symbolic wedding certificate, whilst a coconut tree planting ceremony leaves an everlasting memory of the day with the resort. Additional extras are available for couples looking to enhance the experience including a romantic four course honeymoon dinner on the beach, professional photography and videography, spa treatments and even a change in location for a wedding on a nearby castaway island.
