Deepak & Jo: Bound in Love

Harbinger of Joy to parent (Prem and Shobha Gogia)

For Deepak & Jo Gogia, life has only just started to get back to normal following their wedding last August.

After meeting at a charity fashion show through mutual friends in 2004 it quickly became clear to them that they had met somebody special. Deepak proposed to Jo on Brighton beach 6 months later. A month after becoming engaged, Jo moved to Harrow to live with Deepak and his parents to begin the exciting task of planning their wedding and beginning their lives together.

Deepak and Jo were lucky enough to be able to have an Indian ceremony which took place on the 13th August at the Millennium Mayfair with Ravi Sharma as the Pundit. Jo said “Ravi was fantastic because he was able to explain the vows clearly and made the ceremony accessible to every guest.” Deepak and Jo wanted to make sure that their guests had a day to remember and were treated to food by Laguna and entertainment from Tony Patti. Contemporary Indians dancers and a Dhol player added to the entertainment and atmosphere.

A week later, a civil ceremony was held at Moreton Hall in Warwickshire. Deepak and Jo wanted to make the most of the venue’s great gardens and had an Indian inspired marquee in the grounds. Deepak said “The first time we saw the venue we knew we would be able to have the dream wedding we wished for and we weren’t disappointed – the venue and staff were fantastic on the day – luckily, so was the weather. A lot of the day was photographed by Mark, Jo’s brother who captured the essence of another perfect day.

Deepak and Jo jetted off to Greece for a week after the ‘weddings’ and completed their wedding adventure with a trip to New York in January 2007.
