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.

The following documents should be apostilled by your Secretary of State Office. An apostille is an authentication issued on official documents in order to ensure their international validity.

You are also required to obtain a Business Visa before travel to enable you to have your wedding in Sri Lanka.  The visa needs to be applied for no more than 30 days before travel and takes approx. 4 working days to process.

Guests marrying at hotels in Sri Lanka will need to send photocopies of the documents listed to us at least 12 weeks before the date of travel.

In Resort:

Once you have married in Sri Lanka, you must get 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.

All original documents to be taken with you.

Translation of documents

All legal documents must be in English or legally translated into English. All translated documents must be from a legal translator with letterhead, stamp and seal from the translator's office or notarised by a Notary Public. 

The Wedding Ceremony

In most destinations, your wedding ceremony will be conducted Monday to Friday (excluding local holidays).  In some destinations, local festivals and holidays will determine available wedding dates.  Generally, your wedding will take place in the grounds of the hotel unless otherwise specified.  Many hotels offer wedding gazebos for extra privacy.  Some hotels may offer more than one wedding per day with the first wedding taking place at around 10am with the last wedding at 4pm.  The majority of our weddings are conducted by a marriage officer whose title varies depending on the resort.  Where it is possible to be married by a Minister, the ceremony will be non-denominational unless otherwise stated and will be a Civil wedding.

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

•        Born in the US

•        Have a valid US passport (with some months 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.  All prices and legal requirements correct as of May 2014.
