If you're looking for a really romantic island on which to get married, that isn't too far away either, then why not consider Mauritius. Loved by Royalty and celebrities, this charming island has volcanoes, powder white sandy beaches, lush forests and coral reefed crystal blue waters. With such stunning natural backdrops for the wedding photos, it's little wonder that weddings abroad in Mauritius are so popular. With a myriad of stunning hotel resorts, or beach front hotels, or even the beach, on which to exchange you vows, Mauritius caters for all tastes, and with lots of things to do and see, it also doubles up as a great honeymoon location too.
A couple will need to post photocopies of their documents to arrive in Mauritius at least 6 weeks before they are intending to travel. Documents include birth certificates, valid 10 year passports, details of their full names, professions and address. In addition if either of them is divorced or widowed, certificates to that effect also need to be sent. For more information visit http://bit.ly/qViA4X
