Your search for a unique destination wedding in India ends here. Neemrana has 18 properties that date back to forts and palaces from the 14th century onwards, built by Rajput and Sikh rulers. They also have grand mansions built by the Marathas, Danes, Portuguese, British, Scottish, and the Dutch.
You can choose your century across 700 years and make a truly historic wedding.
Neemrana Fort-Palace is more amazing than its photographs can describe! There are medieval, rustic parts ideal for outdoor garden settings, making it a great destination wedding in India, just as the interiors are ideal for a palatial royal wedding.
Neemrana’s first royal wedding was a London-Singapore affair in 1992, with guests in a chartered plane. A chapel was illuminated with a thousand candles. White and orange Oriental lilies 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 royal wedding, held in this fort, with much festivity, drums, dancing, strings of marigolds and showers of rose petals. The 15th Century Fort-Palace, our heritage hotel in Jaipur, adapted well to both the royal weddings. Neemrana has also married many Indians to Westerners, making it a preferred alternative to a destination wedding in Jaipur and much closer too, being halfway to Jaipur ! 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’!
Now with a Roman amphitheatre which seats some 200 people, hanging gardens, as well as Uncha Bagh and varied other locations for the day and night functions, this venue is a apt for all those looking to have or host a destination wedding in India but minus the city noise. Neemrana is the favourite venue for extravagant royal weddings within the National Capital Region of Delhi. It’s hard to find a match for such magic.
Neemrana 'non-hotels' also offer some of India's oldest fort palace hotels in India which have been restored and revitalized to offer all modern facilities. Hill Fort – Kesroli and its rooftop gardens overlook mustard fields that change their hues with the seasons. Its wide pool deck is truly memorable where open-to-sky, starlit weddings take place.
If you seek an even more exotic royal wedding, there is The Baradari Palace in Patiala, a heritage hotel in Patiala. A destination wedding in India there makes a lot of sense with unique shopping experiences by the Qila Mubarak bazaars.
