For generations, Indian families have met and married at the Taj. We follow preparations for Rittika and Parth’s wedding – an event that is part of their family heritage as the groom’s parents had an arranged marriage at the hotel 28 years earlier. We’re with Mehr, the youngest ever head of food and beverages as she obsessively presides over menus, table settings and canapes. We meet Indian socialite Shoba Dei who was first proposed to in the Sea Lounge as a teenager and we follow jazz singer Dana Gillespie who sang with the likes of David Bowie in the sixties and has been performing in the hotel for the last 30 years
