“For Seychelles Tourism Board, this collaboration was not only a media project but also a chance to showcase the destinations offerings to some very influential personalities. Partnering with flag bearers of the magazine world and the fashion fraternity in India was indeed an exhilarating experience. Condé Nast Traveller India has carved a niche among the readers and to be featured on the cover of their main magazine along with the special edition- The Destination Wedding Guide; both in the same month speak volumes of the beauty of the destination. Seychelles is amongst the top scenic locations for hosting celebrations. It is a privilege for us to have worked alongside the private island-resorts, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island, which highlights evidently the best mix of luxury, and privacy that the destination can offer. We are extremely delighted by this collaboration and ready to welcome celebrations from India”, said Ms. Sherin Francis.

Mr. Sabyasachi Mukherjee, one of the leading designers and a trend setter for millions in India was not only wowed by the destination’s untouched beauty but also found its proximity to India extremely alluring and further added, “A big collaboration is always about having the right people and with Condé Nast Traveller India and Seychelles, all the elements came together to make this possible. The shoot was the perfect mélange of Condé Nast Traveller India’s vision, the pristine beauty of Seychelles, the uber luxe Four Seasons Resort and the beautiful Manushi Chhillar. It has captured the best of a destination wedding as it is very aspirational but does not have the big trappings of being over commercial at the same time. As destination weddings become a very important part of Indian wedding industry, I hope this shoot inspires people to create beautiful weddings which are luxurious yet soulful and intimate.
