Meeru Island Resort welcomes married couples to celebrate their very special Renewal of Vows Ceremony at one of the most beautiful and romantic places in the world...a small, tropical island with stunning white sand beaches, majestic palm trees, warm, crystal clear water in the lagoon and a colourful coral reef teeming with fish.
Enjoy the privacy and intimacy of a secluded, peaceful, natural setting and a casual atmosphere, where "no shoes, no news" is our promise, and the sunsets are marvelous!
The food is delicious, the staff make you feel at home, and the star filled sky makes you feel as if you are truly out of this world... memories that will last a lifetime!
The symbolic Renewal of Vows Ceremony includes reading a passage from the Book of Good Wishes, reciting wedding vows, exchange of rings, groom kissing his bride and signing the wedding certificate. The ceremony takes place in the Asian Wok Restaurant beach area, which is decorated using palm fronds woven in the shape of a heart and local hibiscus flowers. The ceremony group includes local girls from the neighboring Island of Dhiffushiand Meeru staff, all dressed in traditional Maldivian costumes.
The wedding couple should share every minute of life together, during times of happiness and sadness, ease and difficulty, frustration and depression.
Marital connection is the foundation stone of two person's lives. Over that foundation they build every second of their life, and a plan to guide their children in the proper path until they mature and step out on their own feet.
When two people of the opposite sex are united by marriage they are responsible to each other for anything and everything, anytime and everytime and anywhere and everywhere. Under no circumstances should one disobey or disregard the other, even in time of disagreement a peaceful solution should be the only answer.
As long as both are going according to their religion, tradition and customs and abide by the Laws of their society, no one should disobey & disregard the other.
Loyalty, honesty and taking care is all about a successful life together. No one should be dishonest or disloyal to the other. Mutual understanding and trust between both will bind the marriage together, forever.
In the name of the Almighty and most merciful God and witnessed by those live and deceased souls around us, the Meeru staff and others present, may I ask you:
Mr. ____________, do you accept Ms. __________ as your wedded wife?
Ms. ____________, do you accept Mr. __________ as your wedded husband?
As a symbol of your marriage to one another, the groom may put the ring on the bride's finger and the bride may put the ring on the groom's finger.
I now proclaim Mr. & Mrs. __________ as Man and Wife,
Now you may kiss the bride.
