About Me

Raj Dharar: Secret Wedding Blog

Hiya! My name is Raj and it’s lovely to meet you! I hope you enjoy your time here. Shall we dig into the story behind the blog?

In early 2013 I would browse a number wedding blogs and found them fascinating. They shared the most beautiful weddings but nothing I could relate to. It was primarily English weddings or Asian weddings but I knew I didn’t fit into either category due to my own interfaith relationship. Thinking about my own wedding (in the long distant future) I knew I’d want to have something that combined these two together.

In May 2013 I decided to set up a wedding blog focused primarily on Multicultural weddings, Fusion weddings or Interfaith weddings. This was to inspire couples planning their own wedding who are interested in combining two or more cultures, faiths or traditions.

I receive many emails from individuals seeking advice on interfaith relationships and weddings. I am happy to offer advice when and where I can. A popular post, that offers advice from my own father, is How to tell your parents about your interfaith relationship.

Please check out the FAQs page before contacting me.

    I’m dealing with that situation currently I’m Italian & my fiance is Punjabi so it’s pretty confusing cause I want 2 please his family & my family. Which my wedding is going 2 take place in India. So it’s hard cause I want 2 wear a white wedding dress but I don’t want 2 disappoint his family so I figure have my dress made that respect both our cultures & I’m happy as well on my special day.

    Nice blog you have here. Thanks for setting up this multicultural wedding blog – is not easy to have multicultural relationship, and/or long distance relationship.

    Absolutely loved stumbling across this blog. Although we are both punjabi my partner is Sikh and I am Christian. We recently got engaged and we have been struggling to decide on sequence of events and other intricacies. Really nice to read that others have managed to overcome these challenges!
