Banyan Tree Seychelles
Asoulful, stylish resort of refined architecture and breathtaking views, Banyan Tree Seychelles on the exotic island of Mahé is the perfect mix of flawless scenery and five-star luxury. Weddings at this world-class destination can be both glamorous and ritzy for twenty-first century brides, while at the same time it is secluded, elegant and in touch with the all-embracing paradise to host a wedding of a lifetime.
With the warm African sun on your skin and powder-white sands at your feet, you will arrive on the southwestern coast of Mahé where Banyan Tree Seychelles is nestled into the natural vista. You are greeted by a magnificent banyan tree, its feathery branches adding to the mystical charm of the breezy island ambience. Concealed within the emerald wilderness, gorgeous villas, stretching infinity pools and the colonial-style resort hide amidst the untouched natural beauty, reminiscent of a bygone era that feels instantly and intrinsically romantic.
Your stylish hillside villa beckons, and once you’re totally settled in, your Banyan Tree Seychelles wedding coordinator will meet with you to perfect the finishing touches to your special day. They understand that a lifetime of bliss begins with a unique and beautiful wedding, and so they will arrange everything for you to your highest expectations, from the cake and the guestbook to the bridal bouquet and personalised butler services. A variety of exceptional cuisines, ceremonies and themes can be catered for, in several settings of your choice. Whether it is an intimate buffet dinner under the starlit gazebo, or a chic cocktail party on the beach, Banyan Tree Seychelles promises to make your wedding unforgettable.
Your itinerary can be wholly personalised if you choose, or you can also select one of the resort’s three refined wedding packages. Presenting the finest in attentive service, gourmet cuisine and romance by the sea, the most lavish package is the aptly named Passion Wedding (prices from €1780). It is ideal if you want a very exclusive wedding, one with all the luxurious perks you expect from a prestigious resort in the tropics. It makes the most of the heavenly surroundings, with lovely couples’ experiences set in the dreamiest of spots.
To get you in the mood before you say “I do,” the package includes a romantic candlelit barbecue dinner served in your sumptuous villa or on the resort’s unspoiled private beach. You are also invited to indulge in a two-hour spa treatment for you and your loved one, to pamper and cleanse both mind and body ready for your big moment.
With the music of the waves dancing with the gentle hum of chirruping birds, the scene is set for a gorgeous tropical wedding.
Your bouquet is a delicate bloom of exotic flowers, while a chilled bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut Champagne is waiting for you upon your arrival. In the distance, an island-style altar is made of bamboo and colourful flowers, dressed in elegant white drapes that gently ripple in the warm ocean breeze.
As you exchange your vows and promise your lifelong love to your special other half, a Champagne toast marks the beginning of your bright future together. You are presented with your framed wedding certificate, while a two-tiered wedding cake is set up for the traditional cake-cutting ritual that you can choose to enjoy anywhere in the resort. Celebrate on the Colonial-style balcony of the breezy lobby, or soak up the breathtaking views at the edge of the sparkling infinity pool, high above a shimmering ocean lagoon.
Once the sun has dissolved and twinkling constellations begin to stud the sweeping sky, you and your new spouse are invited to name your own star with SkyView, to forever mark your special day in the heart of the Universe. Gaze at your symbol of love in the blanket sky, before you retire to an upgraded villa, with compliments from Banyan Tree Seychelles exclusively for your wedding night. The villa will be romantically decorated with the “Intimate Moments” turndown, and when you awake in the morning, you can enjoy a Champagne breakfast to mark a luxurious first day of the rest of your life.
