For sun and sea lovers looking to make their vows truly memorable, Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and Spa in the Maldives is a winning destination. Surrounded by breath-taking scenery of white sand beaches and jewel-blue water, the resort offers wedding blessing ceremonies in inspiring locations - including underwater.
Couples with an adventurous spirit can embark on a dive and exchange vows on waterproof boards in the middle of a lagoon; or take the indulgent route and hop on board a luxury sailing yacht for a ceremony on the waves. There are dry-land options too: think barefoot on the beach, a pavilion overlooking the ocean, or romance at the roots of a century-old banyan tree.
As wedding ceremonies in the Maldives aren't legally binding, you'll need to have a legal ceremony elsewhere for your marriage to be recognised in the UK.
