An intimate and magical moment

Beach weddings are all about getting away from it all. Boho brides rejoice: with a stretch of desert beach to call your own and ceremonies steeped in island traditions, LUX* South Ari Atoll knows how to craft a day you’ll never forget. Framed by gleaming turquoise waters and powder-soft sands, the setting is spectacular. Walk down the aisle to the sound of bodu beru drummers: the groom and bride are welcomed with a shower of flower petals for a colourful and fragrant future together.

Blessed by a celebrant with a few quiet words, the couple blends two different types of sand in a vase – a symbol of their separate lives merging into one. Vows are placed in a coconut and thrown into the ocean, where the newlyweds’ secret promises will be kept forever. Together, they plant a baby palm tree that will blossom and bloom as their love continues to grow – a token of a memorable day on a paradise island. Close your eyes and imagine your dream wedding - or vows renewal ceremony. Can you see the beautiful, deserted beach, with the waves gently lapping at your feet? The incomparable sunset, the coconut palms swaying gently in the breeze, the two of you hand in hand? Perhaps only your family and a few very special friends in attendance, an intimate and magical moment...
