Online PR News – 11-June-2012 – pRASLIN – (May 2012) An unforgettable wedding celebration awaits couples amidst the stunning surroundings of the Raffles Praslin Seychelles. For couples staying a minimum of 7 nights, the luxury Seychelles resort offers unparalleled romantic experiences and complimentary wedding arrangement.

The pristine beaches and crystal blue ocean waters set an idyllic backdrop in which to exchange vows at this Seychelles hotel (http://www.raffles.com/praslin/). The romantic celebration starts from arrival, when guests receive a bottle of Champagne and fruits in their luxurious Oceanview villa, featuring a private plunge pool, perfect for intimate moments. The romantic journey continues with a couple’s treatment at the award-winning Raffles Spa: a 90-minute side-by-side massage in a Raffles Spa Suite.

As luxury is not having to worry about the details, the resort’s dedicated wedding specialist will take care of all the arrangements according to the guests’ requirements, from finding the perfect location for the ceremony, to decoration, food and beverage arrangement, bridal make-up and hair-do and administrative requirements.

The Praslin resort offers several charming settings for sealing wedding vows, one of them being a legendary spot named ‘Karo Maryaz’ – (Maryaz meaning marriage in Creole) – well known among local residents. ‘Karo Maryaz’ has long been used by generations of Seychellois to successfully ‘pop the question’.

On the wedding day, the chosen location for the wedding ceremony will be dressed with a floral arch made of local frangipani flowers. The wedding ceremony is followed by a champagne reception with a wedding cake for up to 4 persons. To conclude this memorable day, the newly-weds will enjoy a romantic experience with a private dinner under the stars on the beach or at the location of their choice.

To commemorate their union and pledge their everlasting love, couples will also be invited to take part in the newly launched “tree of love” celebration where they plant a tree in the resort’s gardens. Personalized with the couple’s name, the tree symbolises their growing relationship, and every year on their wedding anniversary, they will receive a picture of the tree growing at the birthplace of their union.

During their stay, couples will receive a wedding gift, courtesy of the Seychelles resort (http://www.raffles.com/praslin/locations-and-attractions/hotel-information/) and their butler will arrange for their villa to be decorated with candles, and prepare a drawn bath. The next day, couples are treated to a sumptuous in-villa breakfast, starting their new day afresh with the most mesmerising views and special moments to cherish for a lifetime.

Raffles Praslin proposes this enchanting experience as part of the “Yes I do Wedding in Paradise” offer, with a minimum of 7 nights at the resort, offering savings of Euros 1,100 per couple. The luxury Seychelles resort also offers additional leisure options for couples to enjoy on their romantic trip, including a sunset cruise aboard a yacht, massage under the stars, island hoping excursions, or private island barbeque.
