Zanzibar: a fairy-tale wedding on the beach

For your wedding in Zanzibar, the most romantic and fascinating place to celebrate is Next Paradise Boutique Resort which is a small and charming vacation resort adjacent to the fabulous Pwani Mchangani beach.  In captivating Zanzibar,  the location of Next Paradise will be the most beautiful and poetic setting to make your dreams come true.

 Zanzibar is one of the most picturesque and enchanting places to organize   your wedding, enabling the sweethearts to enjoy a fairy tale atmosphere.  At Next Paradise  it is possible to organize your perfect wedding.  The ceremony and the reception can have a sumptuous banquet or can be  an  intimate and cosy wedding with only the dear ones, all in the warmth and beauty of the Indian Ocean.

A Zanzibaris Wedding  at Next Paradise is celebrated on the fine dazzling white sandy beach adjacent to the resort.

The groom wearing a tuxedo and the bride a bridal gown, barefoot or wearing flip-flops.  A gazebo of flowers (hibiscuses and palms) will be set up as an alter and on the ground soft scented petals.  And in front of the bridal couple a beautiful  turquoise and bluish colored  seascape of the  lagoon and the reef.

To exchange wedding promises in this idyllic setting means starting a new life  together in the best way.

The poetry of a wedding in Zanzibar starts with an aisle of flowers to the marquee of palms, bougainvillea and the scented frangipanis on the beach.  The  Minister/Pastor/Priest is ready to perform the ceremony while the Bride advances barefoot wearing her white gown  which is  dazzling white as  is the sand she treads on.  The breeze of the Indian Ocean softly flutters her veil and her scented bouquet.  The Groom is perfect in his white tuxedo,  anxiously waiting…… This is just a sample of a wedding in Zanzibar.

The Zanzibaris Wedding ceremony will be completed arranged by Next Paradise who upon request can organize a religious or civil ceremony .  For the wedding reception our expert chef takes over together with the excellent service of our staff.  Our cuisine and fine pastry are extremely appreciated.


Couples choose Zanzibar for their wedding and obviously for their honeymoon too.

 At this resort, Next Paradise offers a special service,  paying special attention to all details to make perfect the best day of your life and your honeymoon too.  So between a romantic candle-light dinner, a boat trip sailing towards Nungwi at sunset, a swim with the dolphins in the Kizikkasi bay or some snorkeling along the barrier reef exploring the crystal clear seabed of Mnemba, your stay will really be enchanting!

To guarantee a fairy-tale wedding in Zanzibar,  the newly wedded will lodge in the Honeymoon Suite which is the most romantic accommodation at Next Paradise.   Secluded and quiet, the Honeymoon Suite is furnished with Zanzibaris styled furniture and has colonial decorations, a contrast between the white mosquito nets and the dark poster bed.  From the verandah there is a breathtaking seascape view: The Indian Ocean.

Breakfast in room,  lobster and champagne  for dinner under the glittering stars , and the relaxing sound of the backwash which sounds like a lullaby completes the most pleasant and romantic wedding in Zanzibar.
