Most Awesome Destination Wedding Locations in India
1. GOA – THE MOST AWESOME DESTINATION WEDDING LOCATION IN INDIA
Photographing a wedding in Goa is always a treat. It’s a mixed bag of Breathtaking sunsets, Beautiful resorts, Churches, Portuguese architecture, Old monuments, Beaches, Greens, Mountains, Unpredictable skies, rain and the freedom to be away from the crowds – all at one place. It helps me create a variety of pictures – from Fun pre-wedding pictures at the beach, to some postcards around the monuments & resorts and some really mushy-romantic pictures at sunset. Being in Goa, at a beach resort also makes sure your traditional ceremonies get a fabulous tropical-look in the background.
2. MUSSOORIE – SAY ‘I DO’ ATOP OF THE QUEEN OF HILLS
Mussoorie is the place where Hill station post cards are made! Beautiful tree-covered hills looking down the Doon valley, the surreal view of the Himalayas at sunset, and clear skies giving you a brilliant display of twinkling stars of the milky way & the flickering lights in the valley. It has a wonderful romantic air to it. Long Pines, Canals, Beautiful Orchids, Waterfalls and beautiful architecture makes it a heaven for pre-wedding pictures. The beautiful Sunsets also make sure that you get really awesome ceremony pictures for those early evening functions.It’s a great get-away in Summer months, especially for folks who stay in Metros without an access to a nearby Hill-station. The wedding can be a refreshing change & quite out-of-the-box.
3. UDAIPUR – THE CITY OF LAKES & A HOT SPOT FOR BIG FAT INDIAN WEDDINGS
Udaipur is well connected by air with Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and other major cities. You can choose to have a quaint wedding in the most beautiful property in the middle of Lake Pichhola – Taj Lake Palace. It has about 75 rooms & suites, and is perfect for a close-family wedding.
For Bigger wedding parties, You can choose to have two hotels – say Leela Palace & the Trident to host about 350 guests, and have separate ceremonies at different venues. It adds to the Flavor of being around the lake – when you use the Boats to hop from one resort to the other – the mere 5-10minutes on the lake are both picturesque and relaxing!
4. HYDERABAD – GET SPOILT IN THE CITY OF PEARLS & THE HOME OF THE NIZAM
Falaknuma – meaning ‘mirror of the sky’ is an iconic all marble palace built in 1893 by Nawab Vaqar-ul-Umra, the Nizam’s prime minister, before it was taken over by the Nizam VI. The palace is full of VO monograms after its first resident. An English architect combined Italian and Tudor architecture to give Falaknuma its unique look. Its stained glass windows throw a spectrum of colour into the rooms. The famed 101 seat dining table is treat in itself. Burroughs and Watts from England designed two identical tables, one of which is in Buckingham Palace and the other in the Falaknuma palace. The palace has the largest collection of Venetian chandeliers & the most unique Jade collection in the world. Its rare treasures including painting, statues, manuscripts, books, carved balustrades, photographs and even electrical systems and switchboards – are a magnificent part of history which you can be a part of.
If this is not enough to convince you about Falaknuma, Salman Khan’s sister Arpita tied the know with Aayush Sharma at this Palace. Salman Khan is believed to pay 2Cr rupees for the two-day celebration, booking the entire property including the 60 rooms & the Nizam Suite – and making sure nobody gate-crashes the party.

Jaipur – the largest city of Rajasthan is the ideal tourist location. It is a quintessential part of India’s Golden Triangle – a must-do city in the International Tourists’ list, coming a close second only to Agra – because of the Taj Mahal.
