The welcome speech was delivered by Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa. The President, while listening to the speech quipped, “Speaker of Parliament is also the speaker in our family.”
What was notable at the ceremony was that alcohol was not served and the wedding feast consisted of local cuisine. The ceremony that started at 10:30 in the morning lasted till 3:30 in the afternoon. Then the couple departed in an antique Volkswagen to the Hilton Hotel to spend their honeymoon.
Below photos were taken at their engagement.
