Lankan joy: Standing 3ft tall at own wedding

Height no barrier for newly married couple

Marriages are made in heaven and it has become a reality for two short people who are now standing tall although they are just three feet in height.

Having met through a mutual friend, the couple entered into wedlock at a ceremony held in a hotel in Moratuwa in Colombo recently.

The groom Don Dharmasiri Premalal, 35, is from Diyagama, Galpatha in the Kalutara District and his bride Dilini Iroshini Senaratne, 26, is from Soysapura in Moratuwa.

It was a dream come true for Premalal, the shortest member of a family of seven. But he was strong of heart.

Having followed a course in mobile phone and watch repair in a training centre in Tangalle, he built his own two-storey house in a land gifted by his father.

As time passed he felt lonely since all his siblings got married and went their ways.

However, as fate would have it, a friend Dharmasiri told him there was a suitable match for him just when he had given up hope of finding a life partner.

Relatives of both parties met and the marriage date was fixed. Dharmasiri’s dream girl is the only daughter in a family of two.

Dilini’s father who is employed abroad had decided to hold the wedding reception in a grand way.

“The astrologer who read the horoscope had forecast that my daughter will find her husband soon. I am hopeful that they will lead a successful married life,” he told Daily Mirror.
