For those who can’t travel south for March Break, here’s a little taste of the sun.
Toronto couple Shaweta Sharma and Sundeep Gosain wanted to host a destination wedding for 40 of their closest family and friends. Here’s the catch: It was a destination Hindu wedding, which is chalk full of detailed traditions.
Foreseeing that there would be many tricky logistics, Shaweta and Sundeep sought the help of destination wedding planner Jennifer Borgh. The couple wanted to give its guests a unique experience incorporating a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony with a Caribbean vacation.
With Jennifer’s help, Shaweta and Sundeep chose Jamaica as their destination. In the end, the wedding came together quite easily, given that there’s a strong community of Indo-Jamaicans in the country — especially in the city of Kingston. Here Jennifer sourced a priest and Henna artist, and she even managed to track down a white horse for the groom to ride as he approached the ceremony.
