Wedding in Lanka
Sri Lanka is gaining fast popularity around the world as an ideal choice for destination weddings and honeymoons. The immaculate green landscapes and golden beaches the island is adorned with gives provide a spectrum of great locations for you to celebrate your love and start a new life together.
Your options for a venue range from beachside villas, refurbished colonial bungalows, boutique hotels and eco retreats. These places with their natural beauty and charm will be the perfect backdrop as you exchange your vows. We will help you find a venue that not just offers a great setting, but also exceptional service to go along with it.
Sri Lankan weddings aren’t comparable to any other occasion. Vibrant dancers lead the beautifully adorned bride to the Poruwa ( in the case of a Buddhist wedding) alongside traditional music that is created by the sounds of a wide variety of eastern drums, wind instruments and other forms of percussion. The age old rituals attached to the wedding ceremony make every couple’s experience unique and memorable. The processions are followed by a feast that is shared among family and friends as they celebrate the union of two people they all love.
Weddings in Sri Lanka have more than just form. Depending on your religious beliefs, cultural background and personal preferences, you can design a ceremony that is meaningful to you. Couples can choose a non-denominational service conducted by a Registrar of Marriages, a church ceremony or a traditional Buddhist ‘Poruwa’ ceremony. Wedding ceremonies are conducted Monday to Saturday excluding bank holidays. There is a requirement of a five day minimum period of residency in Sri Lanka prior to the wedding ceremony. The minimum age requirement for marriage is 18 years while for those under 21 years, parental consent is required. All the ceremonies are performed in accordance with British law and are legally recognised as binding. If you’re not British we recommend you seek advice regarding the requirements of your marriage abroad.
