The chuppah (pronounced KOO-PAH, also spelled huppah and pronounced HOO-PAH) is traditionally the canopy under which a Jewish wedding ceremony occurs.
Today however, the chuppah has been embraced by couples of all other faiths.
Commonly referred to by Barbadians as a 'four poster arch', in Indian weddings it may be a referred to as a mandap. Those with no particular religious affiliation request it because of its contemporary look and versatility.
For as many times as we have set up the chuppah, believe it or not, no two weddings have had the same look.
