Since childhood, every girl starts picturizing her dream wedding, but we don’t think any of them ever thought about an Underwater Wedding! Won’t it be a fairytale wedding idea when the couple dons a diving gear to go deep and exchange the vows with the love of their life? Just imagine!

In fact, you might actually spend less doing it this way as you get to save your money on flowers and other things. You and your guests will always remember your magical ‘Little Mermaid’ wedding whole life!
What does an underwater wedding involve?
There are certain places that require you to be a PADI certified diver first. But don’t worry in case you are not one because there are a number of other scuba diving sites that don’t need any kind of certification. Undoubtedly, you will have a lot more freedom underwater if you are certified. And if you are not, then the instructors will go down with you to assist you under the water.
There are some hotels and resorts that offer different underwater wedding package deals to get you and your partner certified before the D-Day. They also provide a few rehearsals.
If you choose to get married in a shallow area, then you can have all your guests around you to witness the ceremony. This could be just four-feet water.
To make the wedding legal, the presence of a certified officiator is mandatory. He can be arranged by the resort or the company doing your wedding planning. And since you can’t sign anything under the water, he will give you documents as soon as you both get out of the water.
As you can’t say your vows under the water, you can say them ahead of time. You can also choose to write them on a dry erase board or a laminated sheet, and carry it down with you. And if you don’t want to necessarily ‘say’ yes, then you can make use of sign language options. Sounds exciting, right?
You can still wear your lovely white wedding dress and classy tuxedo under the waves. It would be so much fun. You don’t have to compromise on anything at all!

Are you thinking about how your friends and family will attend your underwater wedding? Don’t worry. The resort’s experienced underwater videographer will stream the live video from down for everyone present back on land. They can watch the entire ceremony on big screens.
You can also choose to bring the best man and maid of honor underwater along with you.
After coming out of the water, the couple can get dressed again and have a high-spirited reception party with all the champagne popping to celebrate with its near and dear ones later.

And to help you further with all your planning and arrangements, Havelock Island Beach Resort is always present at your service. The magic of such a wedding will be etched in everyone’s heart for always.
These days, many of us have started to prefer an intimate wedding in an exotic destination. Gone are the days when one wanted to invite hundreds of guests to their conventional and big fat wedding celebrations. Now, couples want to have special, peaceful, and snug ceremonies that are in some way an extension of who they are.
Your search ends in Andaman Island if the upper limit of your guest list is somewhere in double digits and if you have always liked the idea of having your wedding on an isolated island. The enchanting beaches revealing the blue hues will give your senses a natural high.
However, everything is not that easy at all. There are a few crucial things that you should consider before finalising the Andaman Island as your beach wedding destination.
#1 Weather is God
The climate of this island is tropical. Throughout the year, temperatures remain in the range of 22-32 degrees Celsius. However, monsoons can play spoiler. Ferries and flights are often cancelled or delayed between mid-May and mid-September as it is the period of heavy rains. Thus, you cannot plan a wedding during this time.
Late November to mid-April is the ideal time period. Months from December to March are sunny with favorable diving conditions and turtle nesting. Thus, the place is relatively crowded during this time. But you can consider planning your wedding here until August.
#2 Don’t expect too much luxury
Everybody has a different idea of luxury. For some, the fanciest car is the true lavishness while for others, it’s all about having a vacation in a cruise line sipping the costliest wine. Then there is one more category of people for whom spending a good time close to nature is the ultimate luxury. If you and your would-be are also one of them, then you will definitely be able to find luxury in abundance in Andamans. The fresh air, cool breeze, palm trees, and vast stretches of the blue ocean are enough to spoil you to a great extent. You would find true happiness by carrying out your wedding ceremonies at a distance from the chaotic city life.
#3 Not overly grand, luxurious & super expensive properties
Andaman Island is not known for excessively posh hotel properties. Rather, it has the most beautiful and delightful boutique resorts in the lap of nature. If you have decided to get hitched here, then we would love to recommend you the best resort for your beach wedding- Havelock Island Beach Resort. You can exchange rings or have a traditional Indian wedding with pheras at this fancy resort that is popular for its private gorgeous sandy beach, an azure ocean, and tropical greenery. This charming property in Havelock Island is perfect for lovebirds to have ceremonies by the turquoise waters. You can customise the wedding menu and have a delicious lunch under the blue sky as well. Its quaintness will make you go weak at your knees. The wooden cottages of the resort are sure to get appreciated by you as well as your guests. It is the perfect spot for an intimate ethereal wedding.
#4 Logistics and suppliers
There are no direct flights to Andaman Island from everywhere. For instance, if you are flying from Delhi or Mumbai, then you will have a layover in Hyderabad or somewhere else. From there, you will be flying to Port Blair, the capital of the island. Its airport is Vir Savarkar Airport. However, there are direct flights also from a few cities such as Chennai, Bangalore, and Kolkata.
To reach any major island from Port Blair, you will be required to take a government ferry or faster private catamaran. However, the timetables are not predictable and services are slow. Sometimes, it can take up to three to four hours to reach Havelock or Neil Island.
These islands are not that much commercialised and thus, services like that of decorators, etc. are limited. But then, the island is miraculously stunning that it doesn’t need any artificial decorations. A surreal, simple, and organic set up can be created with different varieties of flowers, seashells, and candles. But if you have booked Havelock Island Beach Resort, then you don’t have to worry at all. All the required services will be available here including a photographer and makeup artist as well. Just leave everything to their expert planners and you focus on having the most romantic day of your life.
#5 A little unconventional entertainment
Andamans offer a different kind of amusement. Shadi band and DJ set up in these farfetched islands is not a good idea because that can be done in your own city as well. So, what’s the point of travelling all the way here? In this little piece of heaven, you should entertain yourself and your guests with diverse activities like snorkeling, diving, kayaking, island hopping, nature walks, and sea walking. If you are an adventure-lover, then this is the best place for you to exchange rings. No wedding can be more memorable than this for anyone who is going to attend it.
These are a few reality checks that we have presented to just give you a little heads up on what to expect when you are picturising your marriage celebrations in the unbelievably enthralling islands. If you and your partner are of those kinds who want a unique and unconventional sort of wedding, then choosing the magical Andaman Islands would be the best decision ever because nothing can get more delightful than this.
Having a destination wedding is a dream for many. A splendid destination like a beach where you get to experience crashing waves, beach vibes along with cool, multiple hues in the backdrop is something that would make any celebration unforgettable. Having a peaceful wedding with a small gathering of your close friends and family members far from the hullabaloo of the city life is what you need to experience the best day of your life!

The Ross-and-Smith Islands or ‘Twin Islands’ should not be confused with the more popular Ross Islands, also known as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Dweep. The unique selling proposition of these “twin islands” is that they are two different islands connected via a strip of white sand. Visible only during low tides, the crescent-shaped “Sandbar Beach” gets submerged during high tide isolating the two islands.
Wondering what to expect once you step on the island? Tropical forests envelop the virgin beaches that are dotted with a few beach chairs, tree houses, bamboo huts and changing rooms keeping travellers in mind. The crystal clear water makes it an ideal place for spotting beautiful coral reefs and colourful species of fishes underwater. The islands offer an engulfing solitude where visitors can spend hours sunbathing in solace along with other aquatic experiences.
2. The Ocean & the Adventure
There is nothing more ardent than walking along the beach to the sight of waves crashing on the shore; but, if you’re looking for something besides this, twin-islands have more in store for you. The crystal clear water surrounding Ross & Smith Islands is ideal for
snorkelling and swimming. In order to preserve the landscape, commercial activities have not yet been permitted on the island. Nevertheless, in the absence of service providers for the same, you should bring your snorkelling gear to explore the hidden underground beauty.
If you are a novice at swimming, one side of the sand bar has shallow water, making it easier and safe for beginners. While talking about the aquatic delights of Ross & Smith Islands, we can not miss the highlight of the island, Marine Sanctuary. It is the perfect place for spotting gorgeous coral reefs underwater and a rare collection of colourful fishes.
3. Happy Island Hopping
If you are on the verge of deciding whether to visit Andamans or not, a mere photograph of Ross & Smith Islands is enough to make you do it. But here is another reason to add to your list. Twin Islands seem like a little piece of tropical utopia right out of a dreamy picture postcard. If you visit Ross Island in a non-peak season, you can experience having the beach exclusively to yourself. Smith Island is apt for island camping, enjoying village life and hiking a lovely nature trail among the tropical forests. At times the wild elephants that reside in the forests can be found bathing in the sun.
While Ross Island is wild and rugged, Smith Island is catered and manicured for the tourists. These islands in all their wilderness and glory invite you to take in memories that’ll last longer than those tan lines. If we had to sum up what to expect while visiting the Twin Islands, we would probably tell you this. Strolling on the beach, walking barefoot on the fine powdery sand, island hopping from one island to the other, swimming in the clear waters, and just soaking up the sun! Sounds like an ideal day in Ross & Smith Islands.
4. Solace in Solitude
Floating in the Bay of Bengal, the Andaman archipelago lies in the east of the Indian mainland. Imagine being approximately 320 kilometres away from the hustle-bustle of the capital, Port Blair, drinking in the calm of the green and blue hue of the ocean. Ross & Smith Islands offer exclusivity and privacy to travellers. You can spend hours sipping on your coconut water without a soul to disturb your solace. Smith Island, as mentioned earlier in the blog, is ideal for experiencing village life.
The Island houses a small village with nearly 60 families, and accommodation is offered by the Directorate of Tourism. Bookings are tricky to arrange during the peak season, owing to increased demand. Tucked away far away from the cacophony of mundane city life, these exotic islands give a substantial competition to Maldives and Seychelles. The waves do not roar while crashing against the shoreline and are rather calm and demure.
Leave your worries aside as you witness this vast beauty of sea; lazily reaching out over miles and rippling in different tints of blue.
A few years ago, visiting a destination solely because it was Instagram worthy, would be rare, today, not really.

Ross & Smith Islands is that very destination that you would have seen on tabloids and magazines, earning it a reputation of ‘a slice of heaven’.

Remember to bring your camera along. To capture the sky changing its colours, the notoriety of the water, and the tranquillity of the beach. Carpe Diem!
