Nisha & Jason | Ceylon Tea Trails Elopement

Tea Trails Sri Lanka Wedding

Nisha and Jason chose Summerville Bungalow, Tea Trails Sri Lanka, as the idyllic setting for their gorgeous Sri Lanka wedding elopement. The couple’s private abode for the day was the Hatton Bungalow, where they exchanged vows in a Sri Lanka wedding ceremony held on the bungalow’s intimate lawn. After arriving in Colombo, we made our way to Hatton to begin capturing their special day. In the morning, we embarked on a serene boat ride across the tranquil Castlereagh Lake for a breathtaking photo session amidst the picturesque countryside.
The Tea Trails bungalows are situated amidst the scenic hills of the Bogawantalawa region in the Dimbula district of south-central Sri Lanka. This is the premier region for high-quality Ceylon teas, with the “high-grown” varieties renowned for their delicate aroma and flavor. Bogawantalawa is nicknamed “The Golden Valley” due to the thriving tea bushes that produce a wide range of teas, from full-bodied to light and fragrant, throughout the year. This region is celebrated as the birthplace of Ceylon tea and was one of the first areas to be cultivated after the shift from coffee to tea in the 1870s.
The Bogawantalawa region encompasses the expansive western slopes of the tea plantations in Sri Lanka. The five Tea Trails bungalows are situated at varying distances from each other, ranging from 2 km to 15 km. The picturesque surroundings provide the perfect terrain for adventurous activities such as trekking and biking, where visitors can immerse themselves in the stunning vistas of the mountains, lakes, winding roads, and waterfalls.

Summerville Bungalow

The Summerville Bungalow is a lavish estate bungalow located within the Ceylon Tea Trails, a prestigious resort situated in the misty hills of Sri Lanka. Enveloped by verdant hills and surrounded by scenic tea plantations, the bungalow offers a serene retreat amidst breathtaking natural beauty. Adjacent to the bungalow lies a tranquil lake, providing an idyllic sanctuary away from the chaotic routine of daily life, perfect for a Sri Lanka Wedding.
Summerville Bungalow, originally constructed in the early 1900s, has been meticulously renovated and refurbished to retain its original charm and historical significance. The bungalow features modern amenities and comforts that are seamlessly integrated into its timeless elegance. The four generously sized bedrooms are tastefully decorated and offer guests captivating vistas of picturesque surroundings.
The interior decor of Summerville Bungalow pays homage to the cultural and historical significance of the region, with antique furnishings, artwork, and decorative accents embellishing the expansive living spaces. The veranda of the bungalow serves as a serene vantage point to unwind and revel in the breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding vistas.

Kosgoda & Bentota

A few years after their Sri Lanka Wedding, Nisha and Jason unexpectedly reached out to me to inquire about capturing some family photos during their return trip to Sri Lanka. I eagerly accepted the opportunity to revisit the breathtaking country once more.
During their return trip to Sri Lanka, we arranged a photoshoot on Kosgoda Beach, which was conveniently located near their accommodation in Ahungalla, Galle. The beach is well-known for the Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project, adding to the scenic beauty of the location. We then made our way to Bentota, a popular resort town on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. Bentota Beach stretches along the coastline, culminating in a sandy stretch called Paradise Island.
It was delightful to see the family again and meet their two boys. I can hardly wait for my next visit to Sri Lanka!
