Miraval Resorts & Spas has launched its first-ever well-being wedding offering. Available to book beginning this fall at Miraval Berkshires, the Miraval mindful wedding is a multi-day immersive experience customized to honor the couple’s intentions. It includes a well-being itinerary for the couple, experiential reconnection opportunities for their guests, and a ceremony and reception filled with mindful touch points.
Couples and their wedding party will experience Miraval Berkshires’ signature wellness programs and spa services, culminating in a bespoke wedding celebration. Dedicated event planners will assist in designing a personalized, mindful wedding journey. Through a customized wellness itinerary, each wedding focuses on the foundation of connection and communication. Through programming and support from a spiritual guide, each couple will learn how to create a wedding that mirrors the process of composing a life together.
Rudi Bach, relationship guide and sound meditation practitioner at Miraval Berkshires, said “Not only will couples leave with tools that can benefit their relationship in the long run, but with practical skills like breathing techniques to combat stressors on their wedding day. An example of one of the many unique offerings available to guests includes Relationship Imaging: Aura Photography.”
In the days leading up to the ceremony, couples can participate in a two-to-three-day immersion to set intentions and prepare for the emotions of the upcoming celebration so they can engage without distractions from their digital devices and social media. After their immersion, couples can welcome loved ones with "unburdened spirits, open hearts and clear minds." Miraval specialist-led programs help couples co-create a well-being wedding journey for themselves and their guests to bond and have fun through challenge course activities, culinary workshops, meditation, forest-bathing or outdoor adventures.
During the ceremony and reception, couples can use the mindfulness skills learned in their immersion, including breath work, meditation, and gratitude practices, as they join together to celebrate and honor their union. After the ceremony and reception, the couple and their guests can extend their Miraval Berkshires stay and spend time reflecting on the wedding celebration and immersive well-being journey. Following a farewell group yoga or qigong session, the newlyweds can ring the Tibetan gong together, signifying the beginning of their life together. Couples can also extend their stay into the start of a honeymoon where they can rejuvenate in the spa and begin a new life in balance.
“Miraval Resorts have long been destinations for couples to reinforce meaningful connections and practice mindfulness as a pair, so we are thrilled to announce the first Miraval mindful wedding offering, an extended celebration filled with extraordinary experiences to launch your new life as a couple,” said Dina Fenili Niekamp, associate vice president of sales, marketing and brand for Miraval Resorts.
