More Information

If you’re hoping for an intimate and beautiful wedding, look no further than Saman Villas. Nestled along the stunning southern coast of Sri Lanka, the views of the sparkling Indian Ocean and sugary sand beach is the perfect backdrop for a destination wedding.

Classic Wedding – This package is ideal for those hoping for beauty and elegance. Say your vows under a gorgeous canopy set on four carved timber columns, which are decorated on the sides with your choice of chic drapes, and held with picturesque floral arrangements. The views of the Indian Ocean add a wonderfully romantic touch, and your ceremony can be done with either your own vows, or traditional vows by a Kapuwa – a ceremonial wedding officiate.

Premier & Luxury Weddings – For an even more indulgent wedding, this package includes your pretty canopy being set on the pristine sands of Bentota beach. With an abundance of vibrant flowers and the soft sound of waves lapping on the shore, this is a truly idyllic setting for saying “I do”. You can choose between saying your own personal vows, having a religious ceremony, or a traditional Sri Lanka wedding complete with dancers and drummers with vows by a Kapuwa.

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.
