55 Outdoor Wedding Venues in Sri Lanka

Updated: May 17

There’s something special about the outdoors. Two people coming together in a natural space just feels right. At Kay Deane, we’re big advocates of outdoor weddings for aesthetic reasons and also because it allows the couple and the guests to celebrate the union of love in an unrestricted setting. Perhaps you’re considering the outdoor route for your upcoming nuptials. We assure you that it is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make! It will give your wedding an added touch of romance and class, and it is infinitely better (and less stuffy and boring) than the cliché banquet hall option that many of us go for. To help a little with your wedding planning process, we’ve compiled a list of some great outdoor venues across the island. They’ve been listed under the categories beachside, lakeside, garden & hill country, to make it simple to find exactly what you like!
