Like any man about to walk down the aisle, Boston restauranteur Shingara Singh had some last minute jitters before his wedding ceremony.

“My whole family go through same; I want to do same thing too,” Singh said.

Unlike the majority of grooms-to-be, however, Singh had never seen or spoken to his fiancée until the wedding day. The 42-year-old relied on friends and family members to find him a soul mate through the Indian custom of arranged marriage.

Singh and his 25-year-old bride, Sarbjit Kaur, were wed in Milford on Saturday, three days after Kaur arrived in the country. The 25-year-old moved from the Philippines, where she lived with her parents, to be with Singh in Massachusetts.
