One of the most popular locations for weddings in India is the southern region of Kerala, whose tropical backwaters, stunning beaches and epic mountain ranges offer a romantic paradise for couples who are looking for a destination wedding with a difference.
Authentic India Tours new wedding portfolio offers couples the option to get married in an array of different ways. Choose from a traditional Keralan temple, or opt for a traditional Hindu style wedding at a resort. Alternatively a local priest can conduct vows in a small church in one of the local villages.
Post ceremony receptions can take place on board the deck of a luxury Keralan houseboat while cruising the exotic backwaters, with the finest fresh seafood served to guests on banana leaves. Or party the night away with the sand between your toes at a luxury coastal resort. And following the wedding celebrations couples can enjoy a bespoke honeymoon in the beautiful and diverse Kerala region.
For those who want to take it easy, they can enjoy some serious one on one time in a beach villa complete with private pool, or take a cruise on a fully crewed private houseboat.
Or for those who wish to explore, why not stay at the 19th century King’s Residence Chittoor Kottaram in Cochin, a private single key hotel with spectacular views and historical interiors. Relax in a treehouse in the Wayanad mountains, or a private retreat on one of Kerala’s secret backwater islands. Spend your days with elephants at a peaceful hilltop plantation spa hotel, and if you’re feeling adventurous take to the hills of Meesapulimalai, Top Valley or Chokkarmudi for a day of trekking or mountain biking.
