A Wedding Ceremony

Our staff in Colombo branch had a wedding ceremony.
We would like to write of the wedding ceremony which is a different style from Japanese one.

We would like to show firstly about dresses. The wedding dress is Saree (as traditional cloth in Sri Lanka) which colored stark white and spun golden, and long veil.

We felt that a wedding reception banquet had larger difference than the wedding ceremony.
Because of that there is no seating list, guests chose their favorite table on a first come first served basis. Although opening time had been set, guests came to the reception banquet whenever they want. We can see Sri Lanka’s culture in such a slow current of the times.


The bridal couple had appeared without announcement by MC and music, and proceeded to a wedding cake. A scenery that the bridal couple cut cake surrounded by family impressed us strong bond as a family
Dinner is buffet style; we are surprised the bride wearing the wedding dress was taking meals for herself..
Upon the bridal couple leaved the hall for getting a makeover, a dance party was begun.
Everyone, old and young people enjoyed it.


The wedding ceremony and the wedding reception had been held for 6 hours.
