Destination Wedding | The Sri Lankan Edition

While every aspect of a wedding is purely optional, there’s just one thing you cannot skip – the location. Finding the ideal venue can be a tough decision amongst many others a couple would have to make. However, if your heart is set on a destination wedding and the tropics are calling your name, here’s a few things to consider when hosting yours in Sri Lanka. 

Intimate + Hassle Free

You could be travelling from the United States or Europe and yes, admittedly the flight is long but trust us, the payoff is definitely worth it. A long distance journey could also mean you could cut down on a lengthy guest list and keep your invitees’ circle intimate and small. Our Resplendent resorts and teams offer celebratory itineraries and assistance with all aspects of organisation; from your ideal conception through to final execution, leaving you with a hassle free event and experience. 

Host of Options

Destination decided, consider the kind of wedding you want for yourself. A glamorous outdoor occasion with all-inclusive offerings or something rustic chic and boho, leaning toward laidback and relaxed? Think of exchanging vows on a clifftop promontory that captures the wild coastal beauty of the south amongst your loved ones at Cape Weligama. Picture the rocky outcrops, ocean view and jungle shrubbery of Wild Coast Tented Lodge creating the ideal setting for a sundowner soiréea and outdoor wedding. Our planters’ bungalows in the hills at Ceylon Tea Trails provide an intimate space and old-world charm for a more private occasion. The choice is yours.

Memorable + Immersive

Whether you’re opting for a barefoot beach wedding or a rather vibrant affair amongst the tea fields, our island landscape offers plenty of diversity. As a bonus, you’ll also have close access to wilderness and cultural experiences, making for a memorable and extended getaway. Who’s to say you can’t linger a few extra days and explore our land? Discover upscale restaurants and boho cafes, luxurious spas and thrilling adventures ideal for both yourselves and your family and friends to enjoy. Our little island has something for everyone. A destination wedding is your best bet for a built-in vacay after the ceremonies and nuptials, full of fun and high spirits. 

Our wedding packages are completely bespoke, ensuring your wedding is as unique as you are. Guided by each region’s best wedding planners and celebrants, our teams will craft every single detail for your unforgettable day. Having the entire resort for your wedding party exclusively is an option that promises flexibility and privacy.
