Many a lingering courtship has hurried its decision to tie the knot at a romantic Neemrana ‘non-hotel’ Hotel. In beautiful natural or historical sites the cosmos naturally connives to bless you. Several of them have actually gone on to marry in one of our properties – depending how public or private they wanted their wedding to be. You can charter full properties from 60 to 6 rooms. Besides the grand royal weddings, we arrange memorable private ones: on a candle lit beach of the Ganges, on torch-lit sand dunes, by a garden pool, on a rampart or a sea beach, or in a sprawling garden-forest. You spell it – and the rest just seems to unfold like magic before your eyes.
Neemrana’s first wedding was a London-Singapore affair in 1992, with a chartered plane. A chapel was created with a thousand candles. White and orange Oriental lillies hung from baskets in the central court. A black tie dinner followed – not stiff upper-lipped, but with laughter and champagne. The second was a Punjabi marriage with much festivity, drums, dancing, strings of marigolds and showers of rose petals. The 15th-century Fort-Palace adapted well to both. Since then, Neemrana has married many Indians to westerners. Rudyard Kipling’s ballad ‘Oh, East is East and West is West and never the twain shall meet’ seems to ring untrue: the twain do indeed meet and ‘mate’!
Those who try and be the impresarios at their own weddings end up being too tired even to kiss ! Once you choose a Neemrana wedding, you can decide how far you want to go: rose petals can automatically be showered from the skies. Or fireworks celebrate with the cosmos, as embers of silver and golden rain cascade over the façade. Stringed tuberoses fill the air with fragrance, netting the sky in floral lace. Court after court, the Fort-Palace changes colours with the day, enchanting the participants.
Drummers, dancers, classical music performances can entertain your guests as they stroll in the hanging gardens in wonder. Indian and continental delicacies are laid out on different terraces and rooftop gardens.
