Weddings are increasingly moving out of the places of worship and into scenic destinations. The wedding proceedings remain the same of course, with a priest of choice presiding over the union of two loving hearts and accompanied with the blessings of close friends and family.
Also known as destination weddings, Kerala is fast becoming a favorite destination for beach weddings. Acclaimed as one of the ‘10 Paradises of the World’ by the National Geographic Traveler, Kerala is a land of verdant greenery sandwiched between the glistening Arabian Sea and the amazing Western Ghats in southern India. It has a long coastline extending over 500km with numerous unforgettable beaches along the way.
Beaches with their gently swaying palm trees have a calming and serene aura that is so timeless and beautiful, just like a wedding should be. A beach wedding under the open skies of a tropical paradise like Kerala coupled with the rhythmic rolling of the waves as two heartbeats becoming one will surely become the best memory of a lifetime.
A Kerala beach wedding is truly a magical experience and has the grandeur of an amazing holiday along with an unforgettable wedding. The best part is that you can have the wedding and honeymoon at the same destination! Aside from becoming easy on the pocket, your guests will also have an enjoyable holiday post-wedding as there are lots of things to see and experience here.
The scenic Kollam Beach, well-known for its charming beauty and rich heritage offers a great wedding destination. You can go for a western-style wedding or a full-blown Indian wedding here replete with the groom arriving astride a horse or elephant and the beautiful bride arriving in a traditional ‘palki’. There are a number of prestigious hotels and resorts in Kollam that can take care of all the wedding arrangements including decoration, flowers, music, and delectable Indian and continental food.

What’s more, this resort also offers you numerous lake-facing rooms to house your guests as well as honeymoon suites to pamper you during your stay.
