Eden Resort & Spa, the 5-star Beach Resort located on the Golden Mile of Beruwela, successfully hosted its 50th foreign wedding ceremony for the year 2011. This being the highest number of foreign weddings held at a hotel located in the area, the 50th foreign wedding ceremony was held in grand style on the 15th of September 2011.
The lucky couple, Mr. Ian Walker and Ms. Stacey Heycock hailing from England, chose Eden as their dream wedding destination in Sri Lanka. The couple accompanied by their relatives and friends, enjoyed a traditional wedding ceremony at the resort’s beach front with its pristine, golden sandy beach and the clear blue ocean completing a romantic setting.
During the recent past, Eden has conducted many foreign weddings and has gained a high reputation for its elegant wedding arrangements. One of the most attractive features popular among foreigners have been the Elephant Ride and the traditional dance rituals conducted by a highly trained, professional team of dancers and drummers from the area.
Apart from many services and facilities available for weddings at Eden, other facilities include Registration, Photography and Videography services, Cake, Food and Drinks, Special Dinners, Boat Rides, etc.
Commenting, Mr. Kapila Jayawardena, Chairman of the LOLC Leisure Group said, “At a time when Sri Lanka is experiencing high numbers of tourist arrivals, making their stay in the island a life-long memorable experience is of extreme importance. Most foreign couples have chosen Sri Lanka as an exotic, dream destination to celebrate their weddings because of its scenic beauty and rich history infused with age-old traditions and cultures. Eden Resort & Spa have always been at the forefront often going beyond measures to provide its guests a truly memorable 5 star experience.”
In June last year, Eden also had the opportunity to host the wedding ceremony of Ms. Katrina Hodge -who was crowned Miss England at their Beauty Pageant held in UK last year- to Mr. Neil Simpson.
