If you're looking for a destination at which to get marred abroad that simply oozes with romance then you might like to consider the Maldives. Set in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is a collection of islands which are all as beautiful as each other. Covered in green flora, surrounded by crystal blue waters and coral reefs, and drenched under the sun, being in the Maldives is as close to paradise as you get. Whether you dream of getting married on a palm fringed beach with the warm sand between your toes or whether you dream of a luxurious hotel with an al fresco setting, weddings abroad in the Maldives can turn your dreams into realities. Famous for its over water bungalows where breakfast is served from a canoe, sitting on your balcony overlooking the turquoise waters of the lagoon, there's nothing can beat this.
Unfortunately, local law does not allow for non Muslims to get married in the Maldives but it is possible to have a non religious ceremony of your choice which mirrors a real weddings but is purely ceremonial.
