Receive a special blessing – Burma & India

Receive a special blessing – Burma & India

You’ve exchanged rings, said ‘I do’, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still add a bit more ceremony to proceedings

Stay at Burma's Inle Princess Resort, which lazes on the banks of Inle Lake among blue-hued mountains and paddy fields, and you can receive a Shan-style wedding blessing from a Buddhist monk. While you're there, shop at the local floating market, try your hand at pottery and paper-making, and visit Nga Hpe Kyaung, known locally as 'the Jumping Cat Monastery'.

"You could also do this on the backwaters in Kerala," says Amrit Singh of TransIndus (www.transindus.co.uk). "Dress in local style (a mundu sarong for men, sari for women), and take a romantic canoe cruise to a temple, where you'll be greeted by an elephant and drums, for a ceremony. Have some Ayurveda massages in the evenings too."
