If you're after a destination to get married abroad that is full of ancient traditions, rich in culture, and also has some stunning scenery to boot, then perhaps you should consider Sri Lanka. This lovely tropical island sitting at the toe of India has a diverse landscape of mountains, beaches, thick jungle and mile after mile of sandy beaches all of which make some incredible natural backdrops for your wedding photography. You can embrace the culture and include it in a traditional wedding complete with elephants, dancers and bands, or you may prefer a more intimate and romantic exchanging of vows of a moonlit beach. Whatever type of wedding you fancy, weddings abroad in Sri Lanka can cater for all tastes and budgets, and with so much to do and see in Sri Lanka, why not extend your stay to include a honeymoon too.
A couple can send their paperwork from home. This includes proof that they are single, photocopies of their birth certificates, details of their full names, address and profession, together with the same information for both sets of parents, and an affidavit from a solicitor confirming their marital status. In addition, if they have been divorced or widowed, then documents to this effect need sending. The documents need to arrive at least 2 months before the wedding date and the couple need to arrive on the island with their original documents at least 5 days before the wedding.
