I'm looking for information concerning Victorian Honeymoon's during the Raj. My characters are an English Army Captain and an upper middle-class Anglo-Indian (modern interpretation) woman who is being fostered by an Army General with East India Company connections.
While I've founds heaps of information about Victorian Weddings -
and Interracial marriage -
Marriage in British India
I've yet to find anything on where the British newlywed went on Honeymoon while in India. My characters are on a Captain's salary, after all, and I just can't seem to find out where they might go - Bombay(Mumbai), Lucknow, Srinigar, Madras, Calcutta, Lahore? Given this wedding takes place in 1857, where such marriages were pretty frowned upon, would they even go to a major city, or just go to say, Simla? Oh, my bride has been brought up as a Christian, though I'm not yet sure what variety of Christian.
Thank you for any advice or sources you may have at hand.
