Nilushika and Lakmal | Sri lankan Wedding

Nilushika and Lakmal | Sri lankan Wedding

I was very lucky to photograph Nilushika’s and Lakmal’s traditional Sri Lankan buddhist wedding.

Of the many traditional events that take place during a Buddhist wedding, the ‘Poruwa’ ceremony is the most important. ‘Poruwa’ is a beautifully decorated wooden platform on which the traditional Buddhist marriage ceremony takes place. Therefore this event is called the ‘Poruwa Siritha’ (Ceremony)
