When it comes to magical beach weddings in Sri Lanka, the idyllic coastal city of Kalutara is one of the best places to choose; here are some of the highlights for those planning to tie the knot.
The beach itself makes an ideal setting to host events in Kalutara, especially weddings. The soft golden sands, swaying palm trees and the glistening Indian Ocean combine to provide the perfect backdrop; of course, if you hold your ceremony in the evening, look forward to a spellbinding sunset too!
Sri Lankan Charm
While you can have a western-themed wedding, beachside properties like Anantara Kalutara Resort also offer traditional Sri Lankan ceremonies with Kandyan drummers and dancers too. Such resorts do offer personal wedding coordinators as well as floral décor, wedding cake, bridal bouquets and more. Local blog sites such as Travel Kalutara provide more insights into planning your wedding here.
The Wedding Night
After your beach wedding you can look forward to spending more time on the sand; while you can take a romantic walk, hand in hand along the shore, a beachfront dinner is a great way to celebrate as well. Of course, you can also choose to stay at a luxurious villa with ocean views and have an in-room champagne breakfast the next morning.
Those getting married on the beach in Kalutara can spend the honeymoon there too! Depending on the resort you can also indulge in special couples’ spa treatments, take a cooking class together and engage in thrilling water sports too.
