Impressions of Mira & Stefan’s Dream Wedding
We combined my wedding photography assignment with a short holiday and accompanied these two on the most beautiful day of their lives to the Seychelles. It was the absolute perfect day for the two of them! They got married at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – at Anse Source d’Argent on La Digue.
Marcus is not a professional videographer, but he managed to capture all the emotions of this day in beautiful images (in my opinion).

It’s easy to get married in the Seychelles! You only need your passport, birth certificate (English translation) and your loved one. The wedding on the beach is then directly legally recognized in Germany. Back in Germany you only need to apply for a German marriage certificate and, if necessary, have your name changed. After the ceremony in the Seychelles, each of you retain your own names.
We recommend a wedding ceremony in the afternoon. Then you can get ready in a relaxed atmosphere at midday and still have some beautiful pictures taken at sunset after the ceremony. The booking of a special pavilion is advisable, as it enables you to get married at one of the more remote beach areas and it has that personal touch. As a bride you only really need high heel shoes for the pictures, if that is your thing, otherwise barefoot is perfect! Flip Flops for the groom are also more than adequate.
For Mira & Stefan and also with us 3 years ago, it worked to simply just take the wedding dress along as hand luggage in a garment bag. You are not really allowed to do it, but with brides, staff (almost) always turn a blind eye! After all, who would like to put her wedding dress in a suitcase?!

For us Le Domaine de L’Orangeraie is the most beautiful hotel on La Digue and it provides the perfect setting for the preparations, the wedding day, the candlelight dinner in the evening and also for the honeymoon.
It already was our second time in this hotel that we love so much. Three years ago, we personally experienced our dream wedding on the Anse Source d’Argent beach.
If you would like to get married abroad, we will gladly accompany you and capture all the emotional moments for you.
