Weddings at Carana Beach Hotel

Weddings from $650 Call us for prices & availability


Welcome to paradise at Carana Beach Hotel, a stunning retreat nestled on the pristine, white-sand beaches of Mahé Island. Surrounded by the glistening ocean, luscious jungle and soaring granite pillars, when you travel here you’ll be immersed in the true island lifestyle. Your wedding here will be an authentic Seychelles experience, filled with blissful memories and moments that will leave you gleaming.

The sweeping coastline and beautiful ocean horizon add to the tranquil beauty of the property, and at this resort, you’ll have the option of where you’d like your wedding to be set, but the beachfront setting is our favourite; one of the most beautiful and purest beaches in northern Mahe, this silky ribbon of white sand is adorned by majestic rock formations, coconut palms and crystalline waters.

A Classic Wedding entails a dedicated wedding coordinator to assist in creating the day of your dreams, a beautifully decorated venue with exotic floral blossoms, a one-tier wedding cake, bottle of champagne and romantic candlelit dinner on the beach for the newlyweds. After a wonderful day and evening of celebrating, you’ll retreat to your sublime chalet; there’s a total of just 40 chalets, each appointed with beach-inspired décor, set overlooking the cobalt ocean. All chalets offer an open-air terrace with a lounge, luxury amenities and a spacious, modern bathroom. Some also feature a breath-taking plunge pool which overlooks the beach, lovely for a romantic dip together.

Sink into the blissful beachfront views as you lounge on the soft sands of the beach with a good book, or unwind around the beautiful pool on a plush sun lounger. The spa is simply wonderful, offering a menu of holistic, locally-made revitalising treatments to enjoy together, and there are a number of complimentary water sports to enjoy, including kayaking and snorkelling.

Before you travel:

Guests marrying in the Seychelles will need to send photocopies of the documents listed to us at least 12 weeks before the date.


Translation of documents

All legal documents must be in English or legally translated into English. All translated documents must be from a legal translator with letterhead, stamp and seal from the translator's office or notarised by a Notary Public.  Occasionally the documentation will have to be sent to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for their approval before being sent back to the notary to sign. 

The Wedding Ceremony

In most destinations, your wedding ceremony will be conducted Monday to Saturday (excluding local holidays and subject to availability).  Generally, your wedding will take place in the grounds of the hotel unless otherwise specified.  Many hotels offer wedding gazebos for extra privacy.  Some hotels may offer more than one wedding per day with the first wedding taking place at around 10am with the last wedding at 4pm.  The majority of our weddings are conducted by a marriage officer whose title varies depending on the resort.  Where it is possible to be married by a Minister, the ceremony will be non-denominational unless otherwise stated and will be a Civil wedding.

Tropical Sky Weddings and the information given above only apply to couples: who were born in the UK/Ireland and have a valid UK/Irish passport (with some months validity on return home).  If you do not fulfil these requirements you must advise us.  Couples should be referred to the embassy of the country of origin and the country where they wish to marry as they may require extra documentation to satisfy their own embassy requirements – Tropical Sky cannot advise on this and couples must investigate this on their own. 

Mixed Nationalities

Additional wedding administration fees may apply if you are of mixed nationality and you will require additional apostilles on the marriage certificate as well as a authentication letter.  Please note that for the mixed couples all documents must translated in English and notarised.  If you are of French, Swiss or Italian origin, additional procedures prior and after the wedding will be required of you.  Costs are minimal & payable locally.  Average additional fees would be €20 for an apostille stamp on your marriage certificate (this is to confirm the wedding is legal in your own country).  You may also require an extra copy of the marriage certificate (€8) and an authentication letter (€20).

As Tropical Sky weddings have no jurisdiction over hotels/resorts/venues/legal requirements and their charges, we cannot be responsible for any increases or changes to these wedding arrangements.  We will, however, endeavour to advise you of changes as soon as we are made aware of them.
