Set a high benchmark right at the entrance, so your guests are prepared for all the fun and excitement that awaits for them on shore.
Keep your wedding theme constant throughout every element. Think nautical!

In Twilight, when Edward and Bella said “I Do” in a forest setting, our hearts almost skipped a beat. That stunning forest ceremonial site filled with hanging flowers and then the magical wedding reception. WOW! Still can’t get over it!

Wedding Table Setting – Where Wood Dominates
Were you mesmerized looking at Deepika and Ranbir romance around a cave in Italy on the song “Khuda Jaane”? Then, how about celebrating your wedding indoors in an unusual outdoor setting? Sounds confusing and contradictory?! Well, what can we say - it’s meant to be weird, at the same time super exciting!
Old Indian Civilization has blessed us with many manmade and natural caves that you can find and host an unusual wedding at. For instance, Cheerapunji, Kurnool and Pachmari could be great considerations.
The summer camp site in Kuch Kuch Hota is as close as it can get to this unusual outdoor wedding venue idea. All we can think of with camp weddings is the adventurous trip you will have while getting hitched at such as location. Think - dance or ceremonial tents (as seen in Harry Potter – remember the wedding scene of William Weasley and Fleur Delacour), bonfire and the enumerable games you can host at your pre-wedding festivities. A cool way to to break the ice and build and bond with a new family.
You can host one such amazing camp wedding at Kumbalgarh Safari Camp.
Guest Accommodation – Tents!
