Weddings in Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka, the tropical teardrop island at the toe of India, is one of the most exotic and beautiful islands in the world.
With its mystical ancient cities, thick jungles, miles of palm-fringed beaches, unique culture and genuinely warm and hospitable people, this unforgettable destination is the perfect location to seal your love.
If you want to stay on and explore this lush island, extend your trip to include a dream Sri Lanka honeymoon. Unwind in a luxurious spa, watch baby elephants play at Udawalawe (a great place for elephant lovers to visit due to its Elephant Transit Home supported by Born Free), and go diving among mysterious ancient shipwrecks.
