Exotic Pre-Wedding Photoshoot Destinations You Won’t Believe Are In India!
Countless goofy selfies don’t stand a chance against professionally shot pre-wedding pictures of you, lovebirds! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you surely must be familiar with this latest trend.
It might just be a romantic undertaking to get a few socially sanctioned lovey-dovey pictures or something helping build a rapport with your wedding photographer and prepare yourselves for a photo marathon on the d-day, or maybe just to get some informal shots without all the heavy dresses and jewellery, pre-wedding photoshoots cater to all of your needs.
It is pretty amusing when we come to realise how inexplicably influenced and obsessed we are with everything “angrezi”; specially, when it comes to wedding destinations and photoshoot locations. Just about minimal brainstorming or a vague internet search yields so many beautiful desi results that are as good as the foreign ones. Here we compile a list of places within the country that are similar to the exotic ones abroad down to a T.
The first entrant on this list shouldn’t come as a surprise- the valley is as close to “paradise on earth” as it can get. And corroborating are the n number of Indian cinemas that have been shot here and the favourite wedding destination of tons of celebrities.
The “jewel in the crown”, Dal Lake, in Srinagar is a must visit given its serenity through beautiful gardens that line the lake and the surrounding snowcapped mountains. Another breathtaking location is ladakh, an adventurous destination with majestic mountains, for you to full bollywood ishtyle.
Okay, okay! This definitely is not a surprise at all and you wouldn’t want me preaching anything about this destination anyway. We know it from all those cancelled Goa trips that always seem like they will happen, just to fall apart at the right moment because of that one mummy that won’t send her kid.
Brazil is very much exotic (PS. read Samba), making for a very exciting seaside getaway. But enjoy similar idyllic beaches at Goa, closer home. The rustic charm, the picturesque churches, hippie market, unlimited beach fun or the party vibe- what the place has got is incomparable- making it not only a perfect place for photoshoots but also a favourite honeymoon destination.
And an added bonus, is another spectacular destination practically just around the corner- Gokarna, known for its clean beaches, fresh environment and is also less crowded.
Well what could be more romantic than having your pictures taken in front of the world’s most celebrated symbol of love, The Taj?
The UNESCO World Heritage Site and one amongst the Seven Wonders of the World draws tourists, desi and videsi alike, to Agra like moths to wondrous flame around the year. The elegant, green lawns and the pristine white marble make for stunning visuals- immortalising your love in through our pictures.
Couple looking for opulent charm and grandeur in your pictures, look no further. There is no dearth of splendid spots for romantic clicks in this royal city, most recently proven by celebrity weddings! The regal surroundings, artificial lakes, vintage props, all coupled with the magnificent city’s old world charm will make your pictures look no less than a royal portrait.
It is a city that is more than just its ruins- the glorious architecture, the rich history, breathtaking temple complexes, artistic structures, and the ancient carvings- all add to its otherworldly quality. Much like Goa, hampi also attracts tourists, Indians and foreigners alike all round the year. Its rocky terrain sprinkled with the ruins of a once glorious empire stand witness to changing, evolving times and provide a great backdrop to scintillating pictures. The closely located Badami and Aihole are also equally charming places to opt for.
