Mayor’s office, a more beautiful setting, is new location for civil weddings in Seychelles.

Civil weddings that previously were held at the Civil Status office will now take place at the mayor’s office in Victoria. The change, which took effect Thursday, was immediately followed by three marriages.The principal civil status officer, Marietta Labrosse, said the change is taking place due to the size of the Civil Status office. “The office at civil status is too small. The registration of births and deaths are done there. On the contrary, this place (the mayor’s office) is bigger which allows couples to come with family and friends,” said Labrosse.
