Some fast facts and legal requirements to help plan you wedding in Seychelles.
A church wedding without a civil ceremony is not recognised as being legal and the parties must therefore contract a civil wedding prior to the religious ceremony.
Couples wishing to organise their own wedding must apply to the Seychelles Civil Status Office in Victoria on Mahe for a civil ceremony and the relevant church body for the religious ceremony.
It is advisable that the wedding is planned at least two months in advance to allow for the processing of documentation.
