Rajasthan has a rich and royal cultural heritage. The palaces in Rajasthan are an epitome of luxury thus an ideal destination for extravagant and illustrious weddings. If you have always dreamed of exchanging vows with your beloved in a ravishing royal palace with a lavish décor and rose petals showering from the sky, celebrate your wedding with royalty and grandness in the palaces of Rajasthan.
A popular celebrity wedding destination, Jagmandir Palace is unrivaled in exclusivity, as it is located in the middle of a lake. The Garden Courtyard is ideal for entertaining celebratory events hosting large groups, and can be customised with floral and traditional lighting arrangements. The venue is famed for its Kunwarpada Chowk landscaped garden, created for wedding ceremonies, an auspicious location for wedding rites and rituals. The incredibly spacious Palace Lawns can host cocktails, buffets, dinners and there is a dais for performers and DJs.
Named after Maharaja Umaid Singh, grandfather of the present Maharaja of Jodhpur, the palace is famed for being one of the largest private residences in the world. The golden-yellow sandstone monument turned heritage hotel is located on the highest point of Jodhpur. Of note is the Maharaja Suite (Maharajah Umaid Singh’s former chambers) which features art furnishings, dining area, a bar, spa therapy room and a large veranda. The traditional itinerary is a poolside cocktail dinner, a wedding/reception at the Baradari Lawns and possibly another ceremony at the nearby Mehrangarh Fort.
Spanning a 427 acre area, Rambagh Palace was India’s first palace hotel (converted in 1957). The property still features all the trappings of a royal era, from courtyards with fountains to butlers roaming in the palace to respond to your every need. The terrace, garden and lawn areas can host a vibrant Rajasthani Cultural Night for approximately 3000 guests. Outdoor experiences for guests include croquet, mini golf and polo (on request). Spacious suites use the finest fabrics, feature a four-poster bed, walk-in wardrobes, combined with Rajasthani artwork including motifs and mirror/stonework on marble inlay pillars.
The Oberoi Udaivilas represent Mewari legacy, with spacious courtyards, gentle rippling fountains, reflection pools and verdant gardens that find prominence among domes and pavilions. Decor embellishments include hand painted frescoes and mirror work on pillars. The in-house chef serves a fine selection of international cuisine or authentic Rajasthani food from locally sourced ingredients. Guests can relax at the luxurious spa with a pool facing the lake. The festivities begin with a boat ride across Lake Pichola to reach the resort, where you are welcomed in ceremonial style. Each of the 89 rooms and suites is an experience in itself – terrace rooms feature semi-private swimming pools, while exclusive suites feature private swimming pools and outdoor dining. The venue is best for small, intimate weddings that take place across the small lawns, the promenade and the Chandra Mahal.
