Your wedding at Anna of Zanzibar

Every wedding is unique and so your creative ideas are important. Here’s our suggestion to get you started.

Begin your special day with a refreshing breakfast on the beach followed by a relaxing massage at Anna’ spa for the bride. At midday your stylist will arrive to do your hair and make-up. You may also wish to have a beautiful traditional henna tattoo on your hands or feet. The groom is also treated to an invigorating massage.

Take your time to as you get ready and the excitement builds for your big day, enjoying a light lunch and sparkling wine. A photographer will be present from the beginning of the day to record the exciting preparations and the friendly team will be on hand to assist with anything else you may need.

Anna and Pure Zanzibar will take care of the logistics and paperwork, leaving you to sit back and relax at the hotel. At 3pm, the commissioner of Zanzibar will visit to check your paperwork.

At 4pm, your wedding will take place under the canopy of a palm hut on the white sand beach, adorned with beautiful, exotic flowers. The sounds of the traditional Taraab band will greet you; Zanzibari melodies will float on the warm breeze.

The ceremony will last approximately 20 minutes, after which you will be husband and wife, happily married. We welcome ceremonies that enriched by your personal music, readings and blessings. There are many options and we can help with suggestions here.

After your ceremony, your photographer will take some beautiful images to capture the day, the gardens, pool and beach surrounding Anna of Zanzibar make the ideal setting. Choose from a Swahili dinner or a lobster dinner under the expansive African starlit sky for your evening celebrations. Alternatively, Anna can cater for a speciality of your choice (up to 7 courses with matching wines) or a more leisurely bbq.

The celebrations and lively band continue well into the evening, and you are of course welcome to contribute to the music with your own playlists.
