Indula & James

We are so happy that we went with Shrigley Photography & Film to capture the special moments on our wedding day. It was a pleasure to work with Lou and Paul and from the start of the planning process they were so friendly, professional and efficient! We did our pre-engagement shoot with Lou who made us feel at ease and the photos were amazing. On the wedding day itself the photos and videos were captured so well and everything was done in a time efficient way. The end products have been beyond stunning! We love the beautiful natural photos and the videos are so perfect too (With amazing drone shots!). We would highly recommend them to anyone :)

Offley Place Wedding Photographer | Indula & James

This Offley Place Fusion Wedding was such an incredible experience!

Being an Offley Place Wedding Photographer it was a pleasure to be part of this day for James and Indula.

Indula first got in touch with me and said they were planning a wedding where the first half of the day would include a Sri Lankan Poruwa ceremony and then would be a civil ceremony British style.

With Indula’s family being Sri Lankan and James’s being English, they wanted to have two wedding ceremonies to celebrate both cultures!

Offley Place is a fairy-tale wedding venue with a historic past and a modern present. A place to celebrate love.  Embracing all races and cultures for one common reason and that is love. Celebrating couples from different backgrounds: AsianBritishGreekJewishCaribbean and so much more!

The moring was the Sri-Lankan part of their celebrations and the girls got ready together in a large bridal room at Offley. They dressed in traditional Sri-Lankan saris with Indula in white and her bridesmaids in light blue.

It was a mild weathered October day at Offley Place and luckily the ceremony was inside as there was a chill in the air. The Poruwa Ceremony is named due to the stage they marry on.

James entered the Poruwa being led by traditional Sri-Lankan drummers and dancers, it was an incredible entrance! Then Indula entered with her family following the same drummers and dancers.

The ceremony was beautiful and traditional, with them having their fingers tied together to symbolise unity and sealed with water.

The afternoon brought the civil ceremony, speeches, dinner and plenty of dancing! They danced for hours and the vibe was electric! It was such an incredible day!


Indula and James – How they met……

We met both working on the same ward at Basildon hospital as two junior doctors. Initially good friends then after some time (lockdown!) actually went on a date (2 years later!). It’s been smooth sailing ever since :) The proposal was in a beautiful hotel apartment facing tower bridge – some of the photos are on our instagrams! James told Indula they were having a day out for Christmas with his family and ended up surprising her! Then went for a lovely meal at Aqua Nueva afterwards :) The next day James had planned a surprise party with both our families coming down to celebrate. We love doing most things together – mainly cooking, exploring new restaurants and places and binging TV shows.
