We decided to marry in Sri Lanka as this is our common culture; however, as we both are not very traditional,  we wanted to stray away from a conventional Sri Lankan wedding.  We wanted some where intimate and fun where our closest friends and family could celebrate our special day  .  The actual island was completely my partner’s pick and what a fantastic job he did!  It is such a surreal and impossibly romantic place.  There is a single villa on the island which was built in the 1920’s which still retains much of its old-world ambience.   The best part is that the island is only accessible by wading through knee deep water which adds to the mystery and magic! I came across Jonas Peterson’s work more than 5 years ago way before even thinking about my own wedding but from the moment I saw his photography, it was “love at first sight”. I had never imagined that I would have him capturing my own wedding but when I discovered that he was based in Australia, I knew it meant to be.

This wedding pictures are really stunning, and the Sri Lanka landscape couldn’t be more beautiful! The table setting is amazing, I love the lamps and the candles everywhere… another great idea is the way you’ve wrapped the menus around the napkins, so Chic!, I haven’t seen that anywhere before and I think is a smart idea if the wedding is outdoors and there’s a chance that the menus to blow away!
