Top 10 Places To Bookmark For Your Pre Wedding Shoot In India

By Sonali Vij .

Well, pretty much soon after the pandemic COVID-19, couples will start planning their pre-wedding shoot and honeymoon destinations. Let’s keep talking about the suitable honeymoon destinations for another time but this time around, it is all about several destinations in India ideal for your pre-wedding photo-shoot to make your pictures look straight out of a Bollywood Blockbuster.

1. Agra

For a world-famous symbol of love, posing in front of the Taj Mahal truly would make for timeless pictures. Also, if you are looking for more options in Agra itself, then check out Agra Fort, Mehtab Bagh or even 60 km away from Agra – Fatehpur Sikri which too houses several locations. Much has always been talked about the architecture during the Mughal era, then why not gift oneself pictures against such intricate backdrops?

2. Rajasthan

Eyeing on posing before the palace, anyone? Well, feel royal as you feel loved posing for your pre-wedding snaps. Needless to say that the state’s culture and heritage are rather rich and vibrant so head to any of the cities and soak yourself into romance, grandeur, and beauty. You could even plan a quick getaway with friends here and have them photo-bomb your pictures!!!

Pro-tip: Getting clicked in the company of sand dunes may just make for some jaw-dropping pictures!

3. Delhi

The capital city has it all in terms of iconic monuments, beautiful gardens & lakes, and bustling yet colourful streets. While you must check on permissions at some of these spots and may also want to start the shoot early for the best weather and least crowd but Delhi as a photo backdrop wouldn’t disappoint you! Also, a plush farmhouse in Delhi could be considered especially if someone known to you owns it. Lastly, if you want to skip any hard work and just land up to get ready and get clicked in front of a picturesque setting, then do explore Photo Paradise in Qutabgarh and The Perfect Location in Faridabad.

4. Kerala

There is a reason why it is also referred to as, “God’s own Country”! Alleppey is extremely popular with couples as pictures on a houseboat do come with some bragging rights! Also, if you are looking at giving a gorgeously green twist to your pictures, then get clicked at the tea gardens in Munnar and if that’s not it- there is also Bekal which is known for its fort, beach, backwaters and hilly sites making it a complete venue for your pre-wedding shoot!

5. Ladakh

Most of those who have been here can vouch that they are yet to come across a more picture-perfect location! With Ladakh as an option, stress less on worrying about the perfect backdrop for those fairy-tale images amidst the mountains and lakes. However, plan your shoot well with your photographer so you make the most of the sunlight, avoid the touristy spots and don’t forget to make some room for rest time to get acclimatized to the altitude.

6. Goa

Are both you and your fiancé water babies? Then Goa may just make for the best choice of venue! After all, your pre-wedding shoot in all ways possible should be reflective of your personalities. Goa shall also give you both the option of wearing fun and hassle-free clothing for your shoot! There is Sun, Sand and the Sea so now the camera is just calling out for your Smiles!!!

7. Hyderabad

The “City of Nizams is a beautiful amalgamation of Old World Charm and modern living. To begin with, the most gorgeous backdrop would be Taj Falaknuma, a heritage hotel. Its beauty is unmatched, however, you may have to seek prior permission for the photo-shoot as well as find out on the spots permitted. Fancy the idea of a night click amidst the hustle and bustle of the city? Then head towards Charminar! Lastly, whether either of you is a golfer or not, for breath-taking views, head to Boulder Hills Golf & Country Club to pose against the boulders, greenery, and much more!

P.S. Don’t miss out on exploring Ramoji Film City for unique pictures.

8. Andaman Islands

Want your pre-wedding shoot to be the talk of the town? (or at least social media) Then how about Andaman Islands?  Time to get cozy and get clicked maybe over a romantic candlelight dinner by the sea or how about an adventurous twist with some underwater pictures?

9. Pondicherry

Well, India’s little France is well known for its colourful and vibrant vibe. Hence, pictures here shall truly make for unique captures. So, think less and explore the likes of Rock Beach, Windows, and Doors through the streets and gorgeous resorts located in Pondicherry.

10. Rishikesh

There are umpteen scenic spots and getting clicked in the lap of nature would be such a blessing! Why not have a “calm” photo-shoot before the much craziness that awaits during the wedding festivities? Some of the popular spots for the shoot could be LakshmanJhulaShivpuri, and Triveni Ghat. Already visualizing some breath-taking and romantic imagery amidst serene surroundings? Then circle in on this one!!!
