Waskaduwa Beach

Who’s to say that your destination wedding beach has to be different from your wedding photo shoot location?

Gangaramaya Park

Gangaramaya Park

Situated right smack dab in the middle of Beira Lake in the bustling heart of Colombo, Gangaramaya Park is quite the unique urban retreat. The small islet in the lake is connected by way of a quaint little walkway that is just the perfect photo op on your special day. The small retreat is a welcome change from the hectic frenzy of Colombo, but the Colombo skyline is sure to be an impressive backdrop for any photo set here.

Independence Square

Located in the prestigious Cinnamon Gardens area of Colombo’s busy center, Independence Square offers a respite from the frenetic pace of the city. Home to the Independence Memorial Hall, built to commemorate Sri Lanka’s independence from British rule, Independence Square is an iconic and popular stop on many an itinerary. If street-style wedding photo shoots are your cup of tea, look no further as the daily foot traffic in the heart of Sri Lanka’s commercial hub will ensure that your photos have their own unique flair.


Seethawaka Gardens

Located in Avissawella and curated by the Department of National Botanic Gardens in Sri Lanka, Seethawaka Gardens has only been open to the public since 2014. With the stream that traces its ways through the Gardens, and the flowers that line it, this botanical garden spreads over quite a large area, giving you no shortage of options for the perfect shot. With its open-air environs, there is absolutely no reason for you to miss out on having your wedding photo shoot right in the middle of this beautiful site of nature.


Hikkaduwa Beach

Hikkaduwa Beach

One of Sri Lanka’s more famous beaches, Hikkaduwa boasts quite a large number of beachfront hotels, many of which has its own private slice of beach. Internationally lauded for its surf-friendly waves and coral reefs, there is perhaps no beach more iconic in Sri Lanka than Hikkaduwa Beach. If you’re getting married on the beaches in Hikkaduwa, there is no reason for you not to snap your wedding photo here either.


Dutch Hospital

Considered the oldest building in the Colombo Fort area and situated right in front of Colombo’s World Trade Center, there could be no better melding of old and new. Once a hospital built by the Dutch, it is now home to a bustling shopping and dining precinct that comes alive at night. With its quaint 17th century colonial architecture faithfully restored, the inner courtyard of the Dutch Hospital is as unique a setting for a wedding photo shoot as you’ll ever get.
