Reverend Shobha Hughes

Ordained Interfaith Minister

Wedding Officiant







Dear Reverend Shobha, Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding ceremony. We had a good feeling from the moment we met you and those feelings were confirmed with all that has happened since then. Everyone involved in the wedding has complimented us on what a beautiful ceremony it was and the wonderful experience they had that day. We also managed to have a good time despite the last minute planning and hectic schedule. I don’t know what we would have done without you. Robert and I really feel that your ceremony has helped us to realize that marriage is a spiritual experience and we believe that this experience will continue in the coming years. Thank you so much and we love you.                                                                                     –  Patricia & Robert,  Moorestown, N.J.


As you can imagine it has been a bit of a whirlwind since getting home and telling everyone about our news whilst also settling into married life! Now that we have finally managed to relax a bit, we wanted to thank you for the time, thoughtfulness and sensitivity that you brought to our wedding ceremony.  It genuinely could not have been as special a day as it was without you. As we retell the story to our friends and family it sinks in how much you were able to grasp who we were on that day and how best to celebrate it. Thank you again Shobha!

When we decided to get married in New York, we initially did not know where to turn to find someone to give us the private and intimate service that we wanted. Fortunately we contacted Shobha by e-mail and were delighted when we received a phone call from her.  All of the other officiants only e-mailed us and it was immediately obvious on talking to her that she was the perfect minister for our needs.

In the weeks leading up to the ceremony the contact with Shobha was excellent and she explored our needs and wishes making helpful suggestions where appropriate, but never trying to take over our plans. It was great to know that if we had a question it would be answered swiftly and we always felt that our special day was being given the consideration we would have wanted.

On our wedding day, everything went according to plan. It was a lovely ceremony, tailored according to our wishes and held in a beautiful location in Central Park. It was everything we could have wished for and exceeded our expectations. Shobha’s husband, Chris happens to be an events photographer and took some lovely photos of our special occasion. All in all, I cannot recommend Chris & Shobha enough for your special day.

We are a mature couple and would highly recommend Shobha to be your wedding officiant. If you want someone who takes a personal interest in you as individuals and as a couple, Shobha is the one for you. In our phone calls and e-mail exchanges, she was warm, kind, and listened to our concerns - even if they seemed trifling or silly. She radiates "calm." Shobha also understood the anxieties we were going through planning the wedding and taking the next step towards being a married couple. Even our families were touched by the intimate ceremony she performed. We couldn't have been more delighted with our Saturday afternoon wedding.

Dear Shobha, We thought you did a fantastic job of conducting our wedding ceremony. It was exactly what we were looking for, both pace and material. Thanks again for all that you have done and your blessings.                                                    – Janet & Yiu Wing,  Alexandria, Va.


We just returned from our honeymoon and I wanted to thank you again for our beautiful wedding day. We loved the ceremony you wrote for us. It was so beautiful that I would recommend your services without hesitation. Our family was very moved by the ceremony. We have very fond memories of you and our wedding day. Thanks again

Thank God we found you. As you know we had a very complicated family situation and you helped us through it. You were more than a wedding officiant, you became a guide and a friend. We would recommend you to anyone. Your the best!
