Otherwise known as Meerufenfushi this island is on the North Malé Atoll and a 60 minute speedboat ride from Malé International Airport.
The resort is due north of Malé and sits on the eastern tip of this big atoll. Our
Meeru review page
has more details about what the island offers in general so you may want to take a look.
Ok, to avoid confusion we have to say that technically, Meeru doesn't do wedding ceremonies, it does renewal of vows ceremonies, but since it sort of fits with the whole wedding theme (there are flower girls!) we thought we'd place it here.
OK, confusion averted.
The most recent innovation is the creation of a Meeru village within the Meeru resort. It lies at the northern end of the island with it’s own restaurant, spa and reception. The whole resort is rated as 4 stars with their standard garden room accommodation rated 3 stars. Not that you'll notice this difference!
What's in the Renewal of Vows Package?
It’s a busy resort with lots going on. There is, though room for everyone... which is always a good thing.
Your Meeru Island wedding (or rather renewal of vows) ceremony will be in both Dhivehi & English... Don't worry you don't have to learn before, just repeat after the Master of Ceremonies.
At your wedding ceremony there'll be wedding songs, the classic Maldivian bodu beru drums beating as you and your spouse arrive...
...There will even be flower girls to accompany you up the secluded beach aisle.
Afterwards you take a relaxing dhoni trip and watch the the scenery unfold.
What to Expect at Your Renewal of Vows Ceremony
In the morning, local Maldivian girls will pick up the bride where she'll be whisked off to the spa for hair and make-up...
A bit later, the girls return to the room to pick up the groom for his turn to be... well er... groomed in the spa... sorry!
The Meeru Island Maldives wedding ceremony commences to the sound of drumming carried out by local Maldivian drummer boys, as the flower girls escort the bride from the spa to the beach.
Under a white gazebo adorned with hearts and petals the renewal of vows take place on Meeru Island.
After the ceremony, coconuts are served and the certificate is signed by both "renewed" husband and wife.
After this, you're whisked to the edge of the lagoon on a dhoni before returned your villa with flowers decorating the bed... not a Champagne breakfast in site... and just the kind of simplicity you need on an island already imbued with such stunning natural beauty.
How to Book & Package Prices
This romantic wedding in the Maldives is priced around £236 per couple and whilst this is a reasonable sum, Phil and I found that all the extras (photos, drinks, wedding cake and yes ladies, the hair and make-up are in addition to this price).
You can book in the usual way, directly with the resort or through your travel agent.
