Maldives to develop 500-room hotel in Fuvahmulah one-island atoll

Government on Wednesday announced plans to develop a 500-room city hotel in the southern atoll of Fuvahmulah.

Tourism minister Moosa Zameer told reporters that the integrated tourism project in Fuvahmulah will commence in six months, after the completion of a similar project to develop 60 guesthouses in the island of Kaashidhoo in Kaafu atoll.

The minister said that the project worth MVR 400 million (USD 25 million) will be financed through foreign loan aid. The city hotel will be developed in 20 blocks, with a separate convention centre accompanying the development, he added.

“Fuvahmulah has so many unique geographical characteristics like a diving spot just for tiger sharks. We can carry out this project in such a way that the natural beauty of the island’s wetlands and mangroves as well as the lifestyle of the people can be showcased to visitors,” the minister said.

“We receive complaints about the limited air connectivity to Fuvahmulah. But with this project, we will be able to develop at least 1,000 beds in the city and increase flight frequency.”

Being the only one-island atoll and the third largest natural island in the Maldives, Fuvahmulah features a diverse range of habitats, ranging from tropical woodlands and wetlands to freshwater lakes, well-vegetated marshland areas, white sandy beaches of different variations and pebble texture plus gravel beaches and fertile lands of humus greater in area than any other island in the Maldives. Two freshwater lakes in the island plus the many number of swamps and marshland areas in the island give habitat to different plant and animal species not to be found anywhere else in the Maldives.

A nature park developed to promote eco-tourism has recently opened in Fuvahmulah. Visitor centres and boardwalks have been built in Fuvuhmulah’s Eydhigali Kilhi, offering tourists access to the aesthetic beauty of the wetlands and various plants previously hidden from view.

However, the island lacks proper facilities for tourism, except a domestic airport. Only a handful guesthouses provide accommodation to visitors.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were a pageboy and bridesmaid yet again! The Cambridge family attended a wedding this weekend, and of course, they stole the show.

On Saturday, Prince William, Kate Middleton, George and Charlotte attended the nuptials of one of Kate Middleton’s closest friends, Sophie Carter, who married Robert Snuggs at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Norfolk. For the celebration, the tiny royals dressed in blue and white formal wear. Charlotte, 3, was one of three bridesmaids, while George, 5, was among the chosen four pageboys at the ceremony.

Prince William, 36, arrived with some friends in a traditional morning coat. Kate, 36, stunned in a blue dress, which she wore as she arrived with the children in a decorated farmer’s truck.

Both of Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, made the guest list for the celebration, in addition to Kate’s brother James. Kate’s sister, Pippa, was not present for the wedding as she is expecting to give birth to her first child next month with husband James Matthews.

Carter and Middleton have been friends for years. The two often take family vacations together and Carter is even one of Princess Charlotte’s godparents.

Following the ceremony, George and Charlotte were seeing playing with one another at the reception.

“George is a real star, quite the little chap,” a source told People. “He was having a great time, running around like the leader of the pack.”

It won’t be long before the two royal youngsters attend yet another wedding: In less than a month, their aunt, Princess Eugenie, will tie the knot to her finacé Jack Brooksbank. And what’s cuter than seeing those tots in their formal wear?

Wedding Photographers Share Their Favorite Black and White Photo Moments

This post was originally published on this site

As you start to look into wedding photographers, it’s important to land on one whose style matches your vision. That includes their style of photography, what kind of shots they typically take, and even editing in black and white.

Black and white wedding photos are a beautiful addition to your wedding album. Photographer Abby Jiu says by eliminating color as a distraction, black and white photos make it easier to hone in on the details. They can add a regal and timeless touch to your photos that you will cherish for years to come.

“To us, some photos just are black and white photos,” says Dana Curran of Henry + Mac. “There is such a timelessness to black and white, it makes us all think of our grandparents or being grandparents ourselves. You can really focus in on the moment—either small and emotional or a sweeping grand gesture.”

While all of your wedding photos are sure to be stunning—you’re in them after all!—there are a few shots that will look particularly powerful in black and white. “Essentially, it’s the emotional moments that are most powerful as black and white,” says photographer Sarah Falugo. Falugo has shot entire weddings in black and white at a client’s request, but on a shot by shot basis, she reminds couples that the final finish of the image is up to the photographer.

“Ask for examples of full weddings and you’ll see which kind of images are usually black and white and in which percentages,” Falugo suggests. “If you had something different in mind then ideally this should be discussed before you book them or prior to the wedding.”

Before your big day, and even before you book your photographer, discuss what mix of black and white photos you’d love to see in the monochromatic hue. We talked to 7 photographers to find out which wedding day moments are their favorite to see in black and white.
