Sri Lanka Destination Wedding Photography
Azra & Dominics Wedding Ceremony in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka its just stunning, the country, the people, the food, its easy to see why Azra & Dominic fell so in love with Sri Lanka…. and so did we x

Destination wedding photography is always so exciting, going to new places, meeting and making new friends and more importantly making & capturing new memories.

Our journey first took us to Colombo where we had a great few days with Azra & Dominic before the rest of their family & friends flew out to Sri Lanka for the wedding at Trincomalee in the north east of Sri Lanka.

Their wedding was a two part wedding to take place at Trinco Blu by Cinnamon Hotels, the first being a traditional Sri Lankan Pourwa ceremony in the morning and then a western style wedding on the beach in the afternoon, well it did get to well over 30 degrees at midday so made total sense.

‘David & Jane are award winning photographers and we knew that for our special day we couldn’t risk not having the best in the game to capture the moments’.

There is always something extra special about weddings abroad, well apart from that all the guests where in the pool just before the ceremony, there is an excitement thats hard to describe but you can just feel that its going to be a special day and boy Azra & Dominics family & friends where here to enjoy their day.

Azra and her bridesmaids always seemed to be laughing whilst they got ready as Jane grabbed documentary style photos with David photographing Dominic in his beachfront suite and the pre ceremony events.

A very proud father walked Azra to meet Dominic and on the white sandy beach with the glistening Bay of Bengal as the backdrop the wedding ceremony took place and yes it was a truly beautiful wedding.

With cocktails on the beach all served by the ever smiling Trinco Blu waiters and the sound of laughter the early evening sun softened and we grabbed a few photos on the beach (yes this is a job) of the gorgeous new Mr & Mrs

So much was planned into this day, the styling by Magical Moments was exceptional we had tradition drummers, dancers, firebreathers, cake cutting on the beach, sparklers, open air dancing to a great band…. the list goes on

‘David and Jane were fantastic and not only did they capture the perfect shots but they also helped make us feel at ease and their ability to keep everyone laughing and smiling was very much appreciated by all’

Its always surreal when you receive the call to photograph any wedding abroad but Sri Lanka really was a dream destination for us and we are so glad that we where the destination wedding photographers for Azra & Dominics wedding, our everlasting memory of our time in Sri Lanka will not only be the stunning locations we visited around this beautiful island but all the new Sri Lankan & UK friends that we made and hope to see again one day xx

heres a few of our favourite images from Azra & Dominics wedding, enjoy. D&Jxx

Azra & Dominic’s Poruwa Wedding in Sri Lanka Pt 1

sri lanka destination wedding photographers stanbury photography

Traditional Poruwa Wedding Photography
Azra & Dominics Poruwa Wedding Ceremony in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is described as ‘One of the most exotic & beautiful islands in the world’ and from our experience we totally agree.

With its stunning landscape, unique culture and genuinely warm and hospitable people its easy to see why Azra & Dominic fell so in love with Sri Lanka, it is just beautiful.

So the question for Azra and Dominic was a traditional Poruwa Ceremony or a western style ceremony, easy answer….. both.

A Poruwa ceremony is a traditional Sinhalese wedding ceremony that takes place on a “Poruwa”, a beautifully decorated, traditional wooden platform. The ceremony involves a series of rituals performed by the bride and groom, and their families.

The ceremony ends with the brother breaking a coconut (the cleaner the break the longer the marriage) so a long marriage for these guy xx

The temperature was 30 degrees plus, not unusual for Sri Lanka but this was 10am and with the Bay of Bengal in the background it seemed only right that we grabbed a few images on the gorgeous white sands at Trinco Blu by Cinnamon Hotels at Trincomalee, Sri Lanka.

As the title of this blog states this was wedding part 1 as the midday saw temperatures soar well over 30 degrees so the western style ceremony was to take place at 4pm in the afternoon so now it was time to chill, relax with family & friends and just enjoy this paradise location.

‘David & Jane are award winning photographers and we knew that for our special day we couldn’t risk not having the best in the game to capture the moments’.

Its always surreal when you receive the call to photograph any wedding abroad but Sri Lanka really was a dream destination for us and we are so glad that we where the destination wedding photographers for Azra & Dominics wedding in Sri Lanka, heres a few of our favourite images fro their stunning Poruwa wedding, enjoy.
