Lankarus Marriage in Sri Lanka
The wedding ceremony is an exotic, fantastic and unforgettable event that is more than real in Sri Lanka! Lankarus
is proud to present the highest level of organization of wedding ceremonies on the territory of its hotel properties, primarily in Turtle Bay Boutique Hotel
and in The Islander Villa
We can organize a traditional platform «Poruwa», beautifully decorated with coconut leaves and flowers. This scene will be installed on the beach or in the garden.
The bride will leave the hotel room with an orchestra of drummers and accompanied by dancers in national Sri Lankan suits. Cheerfully and solemnly they will accompany the bride to Poruwa on the beach or in the garden. There the bride will have to wait for the bride.
On the Poruwa platform, the master of ceremonies will perform the vows exchange ceremony, accompanied by traditional mantras and prayers. A bundle of betel leaves on the index fingers of the brothers are tied together. The hands of the bride and groom will be washed from a jug of water, while young girls dressed in beautiful saris, to the sound of songs, will bring you traditional Sri Lankan dishes with dishes.
Soon after the ceremony, the bride and groom will be invited to light the lamp, as a symbol of the beginning of family life and a home. Then the celebration of the registration of marriage will continue for a beautiful, exquisitely decorated table. To the sound of toast, you will enjoy the taste of a wedding cake with champagne. You will also be served traditional Sri Lankan sweets and rice cooked with coconut milk.
