Once you have married in Sri Lanka, you may need your marriage certificate certified at the Foreign Ministry, Ministry of External Affairs in Colombo; only then will your marriage certificate be valid to submit to authorities outside of Sri Lanka.  This will be dependent on the hotel you stay at.

Translation of documents

All legal documents must be in English or legally translated into English.

Tropical Sky Weddings and the information given above only apply to couples:

•        Born in the UK & have a valid UK passport (with some month’s validity on return home)

If couples do not fulfil these requirements they must advise us.  Couples should be referred to the embassy of the country of origin and the country where they wish to marry as they may require extra documentation to satisfy their own embassy requirements – Tropical Sky cannot advise on this and couples must investigate this on their own.

As Tropical Sky weddings have no jurisdiction over hotels/resorts/venues/legal requirements and their charges, we cannot be responsible for any increases or changes to these wedding arrangements.  We will, however, endeavour to advise you of changes as soon as we are made aware of them.
