Sunny & Julius

Traditional Homecoming Celebration at Hunting Lodge

This was Sunny & Julius’s Homecoming. While the wedding is orchestrated by the brides family the homecoming which follows the honeymoon, is hosted by the grooms family. It’s a traditional Sri Lankan ceremony that welcomes the new bride into the grooms family as she leaves her own. It starts with the newlyweds entering with the wife’s family and being presented to the husband’s. They light a traditional Sri Lankan oil lamp which is done before any ceremony to welcome good fortune, because light will always rid the darkness. Then they cut the cake and enter together as one united family.
