Destination Wedding in Maldives

A Traditional Maldivian Ceremony

A traditional wedding ceremony in the Maldives includes a Bodu Beru (drums) procession of around 30 drummers, who play the instrument dressed in traditional attire while entering and leading the couple to the ceremony down the aisle. A local Gazi (judge) presides over the Maldives' wedding ceremony in the local dialect, Divahi. Couples can also opt to wear traditional Maldivian clothing as per their preferences. A local mix will spice up your wedding to the next level. However, you can also choose to have a traditional wedding as per your custom. In a traditional setting, the bride is escorted down a fire-lit-torch path by a traditional Maldivian entourage, and the groom waits under an arch of white silk. Proceedings commence to Maldivian drums' sound as the Bodu Katheeb (Island Chief) begins the ceremonial celebration.

You will be lulled into relaxation by spectacular sunsets and the gentle melodies of soft, crashing waves.
