An idyllic creole setting for your wedding
Be welcomed to the beat of a traditional drum, the maravane, by a creole musician in national dress. With a wave of his straw hat he will invite you into Veranda Grand Baie Hotel and Spa.
Add a touch of authentic creole atmosphere to your big day by choosing to get married at Veranda Grand Baie Hotel & Spa. You are guaranteed a ceremony and celebration full of feeling and authenticity. Not only will you enjoy the prime beachfront location, but benefit from a wide range of possibilities for the wedding of your dreams. We provide the services of a wedding planner who will do everything to ensure a personalized and unforgettable event. You will make your marriage vows in a private space set up especially for the occasion.
The décor will be carefully thought and include interlocking hearts, an avenue of palm trees, balloons, rattan armchairs and a table draped with fabric. Romantic background music will play as you say ‘Yes, I do’. This will be followed by a celebration just for the two of you, or surrounded by your guests at a special dinner by the swimming pool.
Your special day should be personal, romantic and beautiful - from the charming to the glamorous, there is a wonderful selection of resorts to choose from for unforgettable commitment ceremonies. Commitment ceremonies mean many different things to different people. A same-sex commitment ceremony can look just like a wedding, complete with a special venue, the wedding outfits, surrounded by all of your family & friends, except that it’s not a legally recognised ceremony. It’s an intimate exchange between you and your partner. We are very pleased to offer same sex symbolic weddings in Mauritius.

**All couples are now required to provide birth certificates which have been re-issued and dated within 3 months of the wedding date. These newly issued birth certificates should be scanned through or posted to the Tropical Sky Wedding Department approximately 12 weeks (and no later than 5 weeks) in advance of the wedding date. New UK birth certificates can be ordered online at:- www.gov.uk/order-copy-birth-death-marriage-certificate The current charge for this is £9.25 per certificate. Please do not order too early as the date of issue must be no earlier than 3 months prior to the wedding date.
A widow or divorcee is not legally authorised to remarry less than 300 days following her husband’s death or after her divorce has been declared unless she undergoes a medical examination in the respective country which will ascertain that she is not pregnant. The medical report should reach us at least 30 days prior to the wedding date. Should the test be proved positive, the couple will not be able to exchange vows under any circumstances.
Before you travel:
Guests marrying in Mauritius will need to send photocopies of the documents listed to us at least 12 weeks before the date of the wedding.
When you get there:
You will be required to visit the Civil Status Office in Port Louis to complete the necessary legal formalities.
NOTE: FOR NON-UK CITIZENS
Extra documentation and extra charges may apply to non-UK citizens getting married in Mauritius. Please contact your Embassy or Consulate for further information. If your documents are not in English, they will need to be officially translated. Your wedding certificate will need to be apostilled in Mauritius (at additional cost), so that it can be internationally recognised.
ALL ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS MUST BE TAKEN WITH YOU WHEN YOU TRAVEL
Translation of documents
All legal documents must be in English or legally translated into English. All translated documents must be from a legal translator with letterhead, stamp and seal from the translator's office or notarised by a Notary Public. Occasionally the documentation will have to be sent to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for their approval before being sent back to the notary to sign.
The Wedding Ceremony
In most destinations, your wedding ceremony will be conducted Monday to Friday (excluding local holidays). In some destinations, local festivals and holidays will determine available wedding dates. Generally, your wedding will take place in the grounds of the hotel unless otherwise specified. Many hotels offer wedding gazebos for extra privacy. Some hotels may offer more than one wedding per day with the first wedding taking place at around 10am with the last wedding at 4pm. The majority of our weddings are conducted by a marriage officer whose title varies depending on the resort. Where it is possible to be married by a Minister, the ceremony will be non-denominational unless otherwise stated and will be a Civil wedding.
Tropical Sky Weddings and the information given above only apply to couples:
• Born in the UK
• Have a valid UK passport (with some months validity on return home)
If couples do not fulfil these requirements they must advise us. Couples should be referred to the embassy of the country of origin and the country where they wish to marry as they may require extra documentation to satisfy their own embassy requirements – Tropical Sky cannot advise on this and couples must investigate this on their own. As Tropical Sky weddings have no jurisdiction over hotels/resorts/venues/legal requirements and their charges, we cannot be responsible for any increases or changes to these wedding arrangements. We will, however, endeavour to advise you of changes as soon as we are made aware of them. All prices and legal requirements correct as of November 2016.
