When an Elopement Wedding Becomes an Exotic Fairy Tale

Category : Weddings

If a private-island elopement is your thing – and why wouldn’t it be? – then this unspoiled retreat Maldives wedding at Velaa Private island will have you taken completely, just as it did with this Maldives wedding photographer. Located in the gorgeous Noonu Atoll, 187 kilometers north of Male, Velaa shares its name with the generations of sea turtles that have inhabited the island for countless years. Rene and Grace aimed for that sense of tranquility and privacy whether from their sun-deck ceremony and reception curated by Elie Berchan Events or taking endless strolls in the lagoon itself making a Maldives wedding photographer's dream come true. The views that spread out across the Indian Ocean below the infinity pools and their turtle-shell shaped water villa kept my sensory exploration cells busy for days, and I am pretty sure these memories this bride and groom got to share with their closest will never pall. If your wedding goals include exotic luxury, five-star hospitality, top notch cuisine and a scenery only seen in a postcard, Velaa Private island in Maldives definitely checks all your boxes!
