My daughter Renuka married Nick Compton on Thursday 6th January 2011. The wedding with sixty invitees – mainly immediate family and close friends – was held at Villa Bentota in Sri Lanka.
The overseas guests arrived at the Villa on the 5th and a simple dinner with Sri Lankan specialties was held at a restaurant in Bentota.
The Ceremony was outdoors and guests had cocktails and relaxed on the beach to watch the sunset. A traditional Sri Lankan group played classic local melodies in the courtyard while the wedding guests continued to enjoy sundowners. Local fire-dancers entertained during dinner. Dancing was by the pool. Hot air lanterns were floated out into the night sky before the pool party and late supper at midnight. The party continued till the morning.
A beach BQ was held for the remaining 35 or so guests the next day at Serendib beach hotel.
