Why did you choose a destination wedding?
We picked a destination wedding because we thought the Maldives was one of the most romantic places for a wedding.
Did you have guests attend, and if so, what was their reaction to you having a destination wedding?
We invited close family and friends, in total 13 people. Everyone was excited and fascinated.
What is your favourite memory of the day?
Konstantin was waiting with our guests as the drum music played, my father and I entered the beach and walked down the aisle. It was so romantic.
What was the best thing about having a destination wedding?
Relaxation, peace and Champagne.
What theme or style did you base your wedding decorations on?
To inspire our guests we used a coral theme to unite everyone. We thought coral would look great in the tropical environment and complemented the ocean.
How did your wedding coordinator assist you?
Sinta managed our agenda and satisfied all of our requests such as music equipment, wedding menu and ceremony customisations.
Did you honeymoon in the same location?
Yes we did. Not only was our honeymoon romantic, but filled with jokes and exciting entertainment on the beach, island bars, the ocean and spas.
What’s your best piece of advice for a couple planning their own destination wedding?
Love each other. Use the beauty of nature to make your wedding even more memorable and remarkable.
