* Note: As it is not legally possible for non-residents to get married in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island’s wedding ceremonies are purely symbolic in nature and not legally binding.
Most guests choose to have a beautiful and celebratory wedding ceremony in the Maldives and to do the legal part of their wedding in their home country, prior to arrival.
