A traditional Sinhala-Buddhist marriage ceremony is known as the poruwa siritha or poruwa ceremony.

The poruwa itself is a decorated wooden platform that represents the house that the couple will share and is symbolic of their marriage and the start of a new life.

Willows Cricket Club in New Zealand were the main sponsors for the trip but the Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes again showed its commitment to supporting all kinds of junior cricket initiatives by making up the shortfall in funding.

Bunchuai, Cher and Chanchai had been invited by the Cricket Live Foundation based in Moratuwa just to the south of the capital to play, train and coach but their trip began with a memorable day at the famous R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo where they watched the first One-Day International between Sri Lanka and England.

It was a fantastic occasion for the boys to watch international cricket for the first time and as the Sri Lankan crowd was in high spirits.

Bunchuai, Cher and Chanchai were accompanied by Richard Cowles and girl friend Pern as well as their Lamphun coach Chris Dodd who as usual recorded the trip with his camera.

Though Sinhala-Buddhist wedding ceremonies have been subject to change over the decades, some of the key features, such as observing the nekath and the poruwa siritha, remain unchanged.

The Nekath, or the auspicious time, is a very important part of Buddhist wedding ceremonies.

The date and the nekatha that the wedding ceremony should begin are decided by an astrologer after consulting the horoscopes of the bride and the groom.
