Seven Palaces For Seven Vows

A traditional wedding at the Samode Palace. The hotel takes pride in organising traditional Indian weddings complete with elephant processions and traditional tikka and garlanding ceremonies hosted under showers of flower petals. They have a Darbar hall for the banquet, while the wedding ceremony itself can be held in the courtyard, giving your guests a good view of the fireworks they set off at the end.
