Nisha & Jason | Ceylon Tea Trails Elopement

Tea Trails Sri Lanka Wedding

Nisha and Jason chose Summerville Bungalow, Ceylon Tea Trails, for their amazing Sri Lanka wedding elopement. The couple’s private abode for the day was the Hatton Bungalow, and they exchanged vows in a Sri Lanka wedding ceremony.
After arriving in Colombo, we went to Hatton for their wedding day. We took a serene boat ride across the tranquil Castlereagh Lake in the morning. Then, we stopped for a beautiful photo session in the picturesque countryside.
Ceylon Tea Trails bungalows lie in the scenic hills of Bogawantalawa, the premier region for high-quality Ceylon teas. Thriving tea bushes surrounding Bogawantalawa, known as “The Golden Valley,” produce a wide range of teas. This region celebrates its status as the birthplace of Ceylon tea. It was one of the first areas to undergo cultivation after the shift from coffee to tea in the 1870s.

Summerville Bungalow

The Summerville Bungalow is a lavish estate in the Ceylon Tea Trails, Sri Lanka. Surrounded by scenic tea plantations, the bungalows offer a wedding retreat in natural beauty. Next to the bungalow lies a tranquil lake, perfect for Sri Lanka Wedding Photos!
The early 1900s saw renovations and refurbishments to the Summerville Bungalow. It retains its original charm and has captivating vistas of the picturesque surroundings.
The interior decor of Summerville Bungalow reflects the cultural significance of the region. Antique furnishings, artwork, and decorative accents embellish the expansive living spaces. I loved the bungalow’s veranda with its breathtaking panoramic views.

Kosgoda & Bentota

A few years after I was their Sri Lanka Wedding Photographer, Nisha, and Jason contacted me to inquire about capturing some family photos. I accepted the opportunity to revisit the breathtaking Sri Lanka once more!
During their return trip to Sri Lanka, we arranged a photoshoot on Kosgoda Beach in Ahungalla, Galle. The beach is well-known for the Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project, adding to the beauty of the location. We then went to Bentota, a famous resort town on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. Bentota Beach stretches along the coastline to a sandy stretch called Paradise Island.
It was delightful to see the family again and meet their two boys. I can’t wait for my next visit as a Sri Lanka wedding photographer!
