Arranged marriages have been the tradition in Indian society for centuries. Even today an overwhelming majority of Indians in India have their marriages planned by their parents.
Both the parents and the young people feel that since they were older and wiser than their children, they would be able to find a suitable match for their children with more prudence than the latter.
Shekhar and Sonika have always known that they will marry according to the old tradition. They only met a day before the wedding although they did get to know each other before taking the big step. The wedding was fantastic. We have seen many different kinds of weddings in India but this one was again a surprise. Arrangements were up to the mark, the best kind of people, warm welcome by the Jaipur City. Thank you Shekhar and Sonika for letting us be there with you.
