Important update for getting married in Mauritius

All couples getting married in Mauritius are now asked 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 us approximately 8 weeks (and no later than 5 weeks) in advance of the wedding date together with all other documentation. All original documentation and paperwork must be taken with the wedding couple to produce at the relevant offices when completing the formalities once in Mauritius. In some circumstances, where it is not possible to obtain a duplicate birth certificate, arrangements must be made to complete an Affidavit before travelling to Mauritius. This signed Affidavit must also be dated within 3 months of the wedding date and copies sent to us together with all other documentation.
If you have any questions regarding these new wedding document changes, please give us a call and we’d be happy to assist.

Additional Mauritius Wedding Information

We recommend you get in touch with your own Embassy or Consulate to check procedures for getting married abroad. Some citizens getting married in Mauritius will need their marriage certificate sent to the Prime Minister’s office to have an Apostille stamp, so that it is internationally recognised. This will be done locally by Beachcombers representative after the wedding and will take approximately 24 hours; your marriage certificate will then be passed back to you. There is a small charge for this service, payable locally.

Do ensure that all photocopies of your paperwork are both clear and complete to ensure legal permissions for your wedding arrangements are not delayed. Please send all required documentation together so as to avoid any confusion.

The minimum age to get married in Mauritius is 18 years.

Planning Your Wedding in Mauritius

We know that planning your beach wedding and honeymoon abroad is one of the most important and time consuming jobs you will ever come across. Arranging your wedding abroad with Beachcomber will help take away all the stress and anxiety, save you valuable time and give you something to truly look forward to.

We arrange many weddings in Mauritius each year so you can be assured that when you’re getting married in Mauritius, your big day is in trusted hands. We guarantee only one wedding a day at the Beachcomber hotels in Mauritius ensuring that your special day is just that – special!

Make sure your passport is valid for more than six months after your return date. If not, you will need to apply for a new one so allow plenty of time for this to come.
If you are travelling onto another destination that requires vaccinations or malaria tablets, make sure you’re up to date with all of the current requirements.
If you require a visa we would suggest contacting your consulate to guarantee this is done by your departure date.
The final balance will be due approximately 10 weeks before you travel and at this point it’s good to re-iterate any special requests you have made for the hotel and to check the policy with your airline with regards to being able to pre-seat, luggage allowances and dietary requests for the flight meals.

The day of departure…

Make a final check to ensure you have everything you need:

Travel documents
Passports
Originals of required documents for your wedding
Bride and grooms wedding outfits
If applicable – the wedding party outfits
For the bride – something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue!
If required – a copy of the speeches
Rings!

When you arrive

When you arrive you will take the day to settle in to your chosen hotel, relax by the pool, sip a cocktail at sunset and enjoy the first day of your honeymoon.
Meet your wedding planner who will work with you to plan your perfect day.
You will choose your wedding location – your wedding can take place anywhere in the resort, most people decide on the gardens close to the beach, but the choice is yours! Weddings will usually take place in the late afternoon as it is a cooler time of the day, the light is also better for photographs and you can take advantage of the sunsets at this time of day. Times are subject to registrar availability and seasonality.

Take a look through the optional extras such as buttonholes, photos and flowers.

Legalities

Unfortunately we cannot get rid of the legalities but we promise to make them as quick and stress free as possible. The day before your wedding (except on public holidays/Saturday/Sunday) you will be met in reception at approximately 08h30. You must have the originals of all required documentation with you.

You will have to go to 4 different offices in Port Louis and will be accompanied by a taxi driver.

Civil Status main office Port Louis – All documents will be double checked and authorisation for the wedding will be granted.
Attorney at law * – all original documents will be checked here and the affidavits will be prepared before they are sworn at the Supreme High Court of Mauritius.
Supreme High Court of Mauritius * – You will Swear Affidavits & must be well dressed – no shorts for men and arms covered for women (no need for shirt/tie/jackets – smart/casual is acceptable). No children are allowed in the Supreme High Court of Mauritius.
Civil Status Sub Office – The taxi driver will take you to a sub office in the district closest to your hotel for the publication of the wedding. At this point you will discuss the wedding time and vows with the civil status officer. The Civil Status Officer is the only person who can confirm the wedding time. (Please note that this is more often than not at 4pm)

* If you have your birth certificates re-issued and dated within 3 months of your wedding date or your Affidavit already completed, you will not be required to visit the Attorney at Law nor the Supreme High Court of Mauritius.

You will arrive back at the hotel at approximately 1pm to relax on the beach for the afternoon.

After the wedding…

The great thing is you do not need to worry about post wedding day blues as you are still on honeymoon! You can relax on the beach, try your hand at a number of water sports and sample many different types of food. You could try a number of excursions from shopping in Port Louis to a trip round one of the countries rum factories. Why not organise a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach for the night after your wedding, or book a relaxing massage for your loved one? Whatever you would like to do our guest relations team at the hotels will be on hand to help you to organise something special.
