Then, Now & Forever

My Wedding in Mauritius

Follow me into a different world or should I rather say to a paradise-like island?

We got married in September in what we call „paradise“, more precisely in Mauritius, a beautiful small island in the Indian Ocean. The decision to get married alone, barefoot at the beach, was made consciously and we are exuberantly happy about our choice.

The wedding took place in Mauritius in the legendary Hotel Sofitel L’Imperial Resort und Spa at the west coast at the fabulous beach Flic en Flac. I have to admit, organizing weddings of other couples is quite easy for me, but planning my own wedding was a challenge.

Bare Feet

I’ve always dreamed about saying, “I do” with my bare feet in the sand, intimate and romantic. If it comes to getting married in Mauritius “Monika Beumers” at the Sofitel L’Imperial Resort and Spa is referred to as very professional. In terms of the weather the west coast is recommendable and the beach Flic en Flac is beautiful. After doing some research and gathering lots of information on how to get married overseas, such as which kind of documents are required, we booked our hotel and reserved the date for the wedding. We were ready for our adventure!

Tiffany & Co

Our wedding theme was „A touch of Tiffany“ and with this in mind, I asked Julia Buschbacher, from MY Bouquet in Austria, to do my bridal bouquet. It was hand-made of silk flowers and brooches – each bouquet unique. The decorations for the pavilion as well as the floral decoration were discussed with Monika on site and realized according to our wishes.

Our photographers „Backlight Photography“ live directly in Mauritius and I believe nobody could have done a better job. We send Billy a request, few months prior to the wedding and now by looking at the pictures and watching the video, which always make us relive our special day, we are more than happy to have chosen Backlight Photography. We were able to enjoy OUR day, accompanied by Backlight but without having the feeling of being disturbed.


Even more importantly, their style matches ours as a couple.
As you can imagine, it is not an easy task to organize a wedding for a wedding planner, therefore I really have to thank Monika for her support to fulfill our every wish – we felt like emperor and empress. It is a quite emotional occasion and I’m definitely a perfectionist. I had every detail planned including time to rest so that we would be able to enjoy our special day as bride and groom.

On our wedding day I was spoiled at the spa of the hotel and Monika left nothing to chance. She was always there for me, every step of the way – not only as a wedding planner, but also as a good friend. She kept her eyes glued to me and provided the perfect setting for our moment that couldn’t have been better!

Thank you!

At this point I want to thank you Monika Beumers one more time for your diligence, your loving care and for your experience! Your expertise is incredible and I wouldn’t want to change a thing. Our sincere thanks also go to Monika’s team at the Sofitel as well as Backlight and Julia – one couldn’t wish for a better team.

Owing to my own wedding in Mauritius, I fell in love with the island and my most fervent wish is to help create and design other couple’s paradise-like dream weddings – with attention to detail. Memories are for a lifetime and a fixed part of a marriage. Weddings involve excitement, inspiration, uniqueness, emotions, desire, and future.

In this spirit „Happy Wedding“.
