Archit's Vratham

8:00 am

Avani Kalutara Resort
Kalutara, WP 12000, Sri Lanka

Traditional Indian

A Vedic ceremony, the Vratham (or fast) invokes the blessings of the Gods and our ancestors through chants and prayers. It heralds the start of a new life for the groom. Bye bye bachelor life!

Nayanika's Haldi

As the groom recites prayers, the bride gets her glow on! Marking the commencement of the wedding festivities and the start of a new chapter in her life, the bride is smeared with turmeric by her closest family members and friends. The turmeric (or haldi) represents a happy and prosperous new beginning

Mehendi & Sangeet Sundowner

6:00 pm

Festive Indian / Western

Traditionally applied by the bride to signify the bond of matrimony, we're giving the mehendi (or henna) ceremony an upgrade to honour the relationships we cherish - in the midst of those we love. Get your mehendi done under the stars before an evening of fun, frolic, dance and drama, and mark your spot as part of the NayaHit family!
