THE WEDDING CEREMONY

Couples can choose a non-denominational civil service conducted by a Celebrant, with or without a Registrar for the leagalisation, and/or a traditional Buddhist ‘Poruwa’ ceremony. The more colourful ‘Poruwa’ ceremony can be tailored to your requirements. Note: You cannot have a formal Christian wedding ceremony in a garden in Sri Lanka, only civil services or Buddhist ceremony. You can have a Christian blessing by a clergyman; however you will need to be in Sri Lanka months prior to meet with the minister.

 

Services conducted by a Celebrant take approximately 25 minutes with spoken Vows and readings, and traditional Buddhist ceremonies take up to 45 minutes. The choice is entirely yours.
