Getting married at LUX* in Mauritius 
Imagine… Tying the knot on a sandy beach, your family and friends close to hand, the sky alive with colour as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean… It may sound like fantasy, but thanks to the benevolence and hospitality of the Mauritian people, your dream wedding can become a reality without the stress or bureaucratic red tape that couples can often experience elsewhere.

Unlike many exotic wedding destinations, Mauritius offers non-residents a legally binding marriage. Symbolic ceremonies and vow renewals are also popular, but what truly sets Mauritius apart is the island's tendency to embrace every visitor as one of its own. The Mauritian Government introduced a special procedure simplifying the bureaucracy for non-resident couples, allowing you to focus on more important things, enjoying each and every moment of your special day…

Legal requirements

If you're thinking of getting married in Mauritius, here's what you need to know:

  • Each of our resorts has wonderful wedding coordinators, who will handle your every request with the utmost respect and consummate skill.
  • You should arrive in Mauritius at least 3 days before your ceremony
  • If you've booked a complete wedding package with us, we require the following documents at least 30 days before the wedding ceremony:copies of the couples' birth certificates (translated into English or French, if applicable); copies of the first 3 pages of both spouses' passports; any documents related to previous marriages and their respective end, i.e. divorce or widowhood (translated into English or French if applicable)
  • The Marital Status Act specifies that non-residents can get married the day following the posting of the marriage banns. However, the couple must obtain a certificate issued by the Prime Minister's office which certifies that neither of the two are Mauritian citizens or residents. The resort will send a request for this certificate, together with the documents listed above, and will arrange for it to be prepared on your behalf.
  • The day before your wedding, you will be required to collect this certificate in person, and see a lawyer for an affidavit (a document certifying your identity and the authenticity of the documents provided); if you booked a wedding package with us, then one of our team members will accompany you to ensure that everything goes smoothly.If you require a Catholic ceremony, simply contact the Port-Louis Diocese:
