Your wedding is, no doubt, going to be one of the happiest days of your life, so why not make it the best it can be by bringing a touch of royalty. Imagine tying the knot not at a five star hotel, but at a palace. A palace that has stood the test of time for centuries. Fortunately, you don’t just have to imagine anymore because we bring you five of the finest palaces India has to offer for the most opulent wedding you could ever wish for.
Umaid Bhawan Palace is a magnificent piece of Rajasthan’s heritage, and a symbol of new Jodhpur. Home of the erstwhile Jodhpur royal family and currently the world’s sixth-largest private residence. Palace butlers are trained as knowledgeable hosts, taking care of royalty. They guarantee unforgettable moments at the palace and in the city. Anything you desire is tailor-made for a personalised guest experience.
The Samode Palace in Rajasthan is an ode to true royalty. It is the perfect heritage experience for a wedding ceremony. Flawless service meets breathtaking decor. Modern amenities meet an era gone by. A stunning courtyard meets a jaw dropping durbar hall. And you meet what is arguably the finest wedding venue you will ever see. This truly is romance the kind of which we rarely ever get to see anymore.
Between Delhi and Jaipur lies a piece of history so gorgeous, it would be folly to not have it right at the top of this list. This 15th century palace oozes luxury from its every corner. And within its many walls, royalty comes alive. From a large grand wedding in a garden forest to an intimate ceremony on torch-lit sand dunes, the Neemrana Fort Palace has everything for your big night.
The light of dawn. There are few names given to palaces that are more romantic than this one. And for good reason. One view at the Noor-us-Sabah Palace in Bhopal will have you falling in love all over again. First, there’s food right from the Nawabi Era to seduce your tastebuds. Then the panoramic view of the lake to take your breath away. And finally, the Diwan-e-Khas, impeccably manicured gardens that overlook the lake as you take your vows. If that’s not old school love, we don’t know what is!
Diggi Palace in Rajasthan truly is a slice of royalty. A vast palatial structure, it offers a wedding not even the royals themselves could refuse. Picture an alfresco dinner in the sprawling Hathi Chaughan Lawn, or an entirely awe-inspiring reception in the ornate Durbar Mahal. Picture driving away with your love in a specially arranged vintage car, moments after you’ve enjoyed the traditional entertainment from the locals. You’ve just pictured perfection! Perfection that could be your wedding.
