The Wedding Ceremony

Couples can choose a non-denominational civil service conducted by a Celebrant, with or without a Registrar for the leagalisation, and/or a traditional Buddhist ‘Poruwa’ ceremony. The more colourful ‘Poruwa’ ceremony can be tailored to your requirements. Note: You cannot have a formal Christian wedding ceremony in a garden in Sri Lanka, only civil services or Buddhist ceremony. You can have a Christian blessing by a clergyman; however you will need to be in Sri Lanka months prior to meet with the minister.

Services conducted by a Celebrant take approximately 25 minutes with spoken Vows and readings, and traditional Buddhist ceremonies take up to 45 minutes. The choice is entirely yours.

Weddings can be conducted from Monday to Saturday excluding bank holidays. The couple must be 18 years or over. There is a minimum residency of 5 days i.e. couples must be in Sri Lanka at least 3 days prior to the wedding day. Parental consent is required if under 21.

Important Information

  • If someone is making this application on your behalf, they will need a letter of authority – see “Letter of Authority” attached – signature on letter of Authority should be the same as on Passport.

After approval from the Ministry of External Affairs in Colombo, it is then required that your paperwork be taken to the Consular/Embassy of the country that has issued your passport, for further verification.
