I would contact a lot of online travel agents and play them off against each other.

You can contact the hotel directly although I have found going through agents cheaper.

Try netflights, mercury direct & destiny lift for starters

You might get a deal or you might not, who's to say. I wouldn't chance it as you are going for a wedding and therefore not flexible on dates.

Preston and Bronia have suggested online travel agents and I would first check through these and see if there's much variation in price. Also try phoning them as sometimes they can offer deals.

I booked through Trailfinders who I have used before, was £600 cheaper than booking direct with hotel, and no credit card fees if you pay that way!

Mercury direct tend to do good late deals. That's because they sort of contractually pre purchase rooms in various hotels do they need to fill them up. As you are going in June you could be on luck but it's a risk.

Yes,even though there's a choice of airlines, last minute availability could be a problem. I would not advise booking hotel and flight separately, you won't get the best deal.

IME Mercury Direct will be the best price, I've used them a lot, not only for Mauritius.

Trailfinders I've used a few times they are an excellent company, particularly for tailor made holidays rather than a simple flight/hotel/transfer and the no charge for credit card fees is very good but I doubt they'll beat the other online agents.
