Six Senses Home Office, Bangkok – 17 December 2013:
The Maldives is one of the world’s most magical destinations for beautiful weddings with no better setting than that offered by Six Senses Laamu. Located in the southern Laamu Atoll, this pristine island takes the Maldivian experience to a new height. Beautifully remote, yet easily accessible by plane and boat from Malé, Six Senses Laamu is set in a lagoon where dolphins swim along the sandy shoreline. With private villas set over-water and on the palm-fringed island, it’s the ideal escape for tying the knot.
To kick off the 2014 wedding season, Six Senses has created a wedding package featuring two enchanting backdrop options for the ceremony; either on the white powdery beach fringed with palm trees or on a private sandbank surrounded by turquoise ocean waters.
Upon arriving at Six Senses Laamu, each wedding couple is welcomed by their GEM (Guest Experience Maker), their own on-island wedding coordinator, who will escort them to their villa for some post-travel relaxation before the big day. The couple then has the option of enjoying a Six Senses Spa Sensory Journey at the start of their celebration or after the ceremony, if preferred.
With the scene set for a dreamy tropical wedding, as the sun begins to turn the sky to amber, a traditional Maldivian Boduberu band accompanies the couple to the podium, where a fresh flower bouquet and a boutonniere await them. With the exchange of their vows the couple are pronounced husband and wife, toasted with sparkling wine then invited to cut their wedding cake.
Shortly afterwards, their GEM escorts the newlyweds to the beach for a romantic three-course candlelit dinner accompanied by champagne or wine and soft drinks.
During their stay, the couple are also offered a romantic one-hour sunset cruise with canapés, so they can enjoy the tranquil scenery of Laamu Atoll.
As a keepsake of this very special occasion, a photographer is provided to record the memories on a photo CD, plus 50 prints. The couple are also presented with a framed wedding certificate.
The all-inclusive cost of this dream wedding package starts at US$2,800++ for the beach ceremony, and US$3,500++ for the sandbank ceremony. Package rates are valid from 7 January through 22 December 2014. Pricing is based on a minimum three-night stay, which is sold separately.
