In all of Asia, Sri Lanka triumphs over others when it comes to the 3Cs – culture, coastline and cost. Few places have as many UNESCO World Heritage Sites and 2000 years of history crammed unto a small island. And the beaches that ring the island are long golden stretches of little known perfection. Best of all, couples will love how a wedding in Sri Lanka can be wonderfully luxurious yet affordable.

90km outside of Colombo is the 'City of Gems' – Ratnapura. Here, mining for gems has remained the same since the days of Alexander The Great and the breathtaking scenery surrounding the city makes it worthy of a day trip.

Trendy couples take note! Stratford Avenue in Colombo is fast becoming a hip district filled with boutiques, art galleries, cafes and a spa.

Sri Lanka is still very much under the radar of most travellers. That means much of it is still uncrowded. Making it the ideal setting for perfect wedding pictures. Exchanging your vows on the beach will be the beautiful, exclusive event you’ve always desired. Distances between all of the island’s attractions and sites are short. Visit a 2000 year-old temple, see hundreds of elephants gathering to drink, and then head to the beach for some surf, all before lunch! Perfect for planning an unforgettable trip for you and your wedding guests.
