New overwater wedding pavilion at Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru
Maldives.net.mv – Imagine walking towards the rest of your life over a glass-bottomed aisle, serenaded by ancient turtles and kaleidoscopic fish. Launched in December 2015, Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru unveils its most breathtaking bridal backdrop to date: a new “floating” overwater pavilion that elevates the beach wedding concept to a spectacular vantage point, allowing couples to pledge forever above the infinite life and endless beauty of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve ocean.
“Landaa’s wild natural beauty has hosted so many incredible weddings and celebrations,” comments Regional Vice President and General Manager Armando Kraenzlin. “Our UNESCO Biosphere Reserve location really sets up apart, and our vision with the new Wedding Pavilion was to incorporate this in a way that surpassed anything we’d offered before. Now wedding couples can surround themselves by – and draw inspiration from – the power, possibility and abundant beauty of the ocean.”
Located off the northeast tip of the island, accessible only by boat, the overwater Wedding Pavilion is a freestanding, pillared structure: light and airy with lofty vaulted ceilings (maximum height 6 metres or 19.7 feet); shimmering titanium-polished concrete floor with glass bottom “aisle” that’s above a turtle enclosure; and wrap-around, bi-folding floor-to-ceiling glass doors to three sides, opening onto timber decking. It’s a sublime 45 square metre (484 square feet, or 10.2 by 7 metre/35 by 23 feet) space that embraces the bridal couple – and up to 16 guests – in nature’s eternal energy alongside everlasting ocean views.
While nature might be the only décor needed, couples can choose to personalise the space with flowers, candles and billowing fabrics – and select their nature-inspired colour palette, whether dreamy daytime blues or sunset scarlet hues. The Resort’s Wedding Coordinator can help couples plan every bespoke detail of their day.
