We are The Joshi family. Three siblings. At Darshan we pride ourselves on a family tradition that spans the last three generations of providing Hindu prayers that are creative, enjoyable and an experience worth taking part in.
Faith is an integral and important part of most lives and prayer is a personal reflection of time and meditation. Our philosophy is to bring that faith to people in an appropriate, dignified and ethical manner. In order to do this we need to be allowed to practice our faith freely and conduct ceremonies as we have been taught.
Preachers are invited guests. When you come to us we accept your decision to marry. During any ceremony we try and talk through what it is you are doing and why, both in Gujarati and English. Shlokas are in Sanskrit. Of course, prior to the event/s we will help you plan your day an understanding of what it's like on the inside; the common pitfalls and the joys.
We hope you find all the resources you need from auspicious times, to the samaghri list here. Please do take a little time to digest the information on all the pages. You will also find images from weddings we have conducted. These images give a sense of the type of ceremony we try to perform.
Daskhina is reflective of the meeting time beforehand, assistance and guidance, time taken for preparation, travel time on event days and travel costs; inclusive of the costs of risks associated with travel.
If you are genuine and seriously considering inviting us to conduct prayers then: (1) Please do view the content of the pages thoroughly and then feel free to contact via phone or email. (2) Please note no provisional invitations will be accepted. Contact times and contact details are available on the last page. Please adhere to these. Confirmed invitations are taken and on a first come first served basis. Thank you.
