{GB} Destination Weddings: Getting Married in India


Whether you want a beach wedding at sunset, a palatial ceremony, the Taj Mahal in your wedding photos or you want to say ‘I Do’ on a hilltop, when it comes to getting married in India, your options are limited only by your imagination.

Think Bollywood, bright colours, dazzling jewellery, spices, elephants, fire eaters and showers of rose petals. If you find cheap flights to India you could have the wedding of your wildest dreams.

Take a look at our guide for tips on the best places to get hitched in incredible India.


The most popular time of year for tying the knot in India is from October to February, when the weather is dry and sunny. The peak months of December and January are the busiest with people escaping to the sun in winter time. Avoid these months is you don’t want to pay more for hotels and flights.



Goa is the perfect place for your dream beach wedding. You can arrange your wedding weither through a wedding planner or through a luxury hotel. The Leela Hotel, on secluded Morbor beach, and the Taj Exotica, on quiet Varca beach in south Goa are two of the most beautiful and secluded destinations to tie the knot. If you dream of your special day being lit by a spectacular, fiery orange sunset, as you stroll through soft white sand and brilliant blue waters, then Goa is beach wedding heaven.


Known as the city of lakes and palaces, Udaipur really is one of the most romantic and enchanting places in India. There are so many stunning regal palaces and buildings that you can choose to get married in, this really could be your very own royal wedding (at a fraction of the cost!). in Udaipur you are guaranteed a wedding venue that is historical, unique and captivating and will give a fairy-tale quality to your special day. If you want contemporary luxury in a palatial setting why not opt for Devi Gargh which is a beautiful, rambling 18th century fort just 45 minutes from Udaipur.


The ‘pink city’ of Jaipur offers a huge range of wedding styles from ornate palace ceremonies to ancient mansions that your guests can stay in. The Raj Palace, Rambagh Palace and the Jai mahal Palace are some of the most beautiful. Those looking for a less costly option will find one of Jaipur’s old mansions like Alsisar Haveli and Mandawa Haveli the perfect choice.

One hour from Udaipur is Samode Palace which is built into the Aravali Ranges offers a more secluded setting and shimmers at night with twinkling lights that make it a wonderfully romantic venue for a wedding.


If you’d love a hilltop wedding then the Umaid Bhawan palace hotel, overlooking the “blue city” of Jodhpur, is astonishing and even today is still used by the royal family of Jodhpur. If you have a slightly smaller budget to play with then two other heritage locations are Ranbanka Palace and Ajit Bhawan.


Relatively unknown as a wedding destination, Kerala is still an unspoilt, tropical and picture perfect place for those who crave a quiet wedding. Get hitched along the banks of a lake or palm fringed canal, with food served on banana leaves. The lovely Zuri Kumarakom, near Alleppey, will help you make this happen. Kerala is also a wonderful place to continue on to your honeymoon, perhaps on a traditional houseboat? If you’re feeling adventurous, Kerala is the place to wed if you’d like your groom to arrive at the ceremony on the back of an elephant. Yes, in India, anything is possible!
