The most talked-about weddings in India make an impression due to their style, locations, grandeur, and most importantly, gastronomy. In a country as diverse as India, where food is firmly rooted in our culture and integrated into our celebrations, our love for different regional cuisines unites us. We believe in the saying ‘Athithi Devo Bhava’ where guests are considered equivalent to God. So in order to help you please their taste buds, Taj pulls out all stops giving them a memorable gourmet experience along with it’s impeccable hospitality.
Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
This iconic hotel has played host to more weddings than one can count over the last century, but what has made them a favorite through the ages is the banqueting team’s passion to constantly reinvent itself and stay on top of their game. Taj Mahal Palace is known to invest special attention in the creation of unique menus that complement the hotel’s many stunning locations and the latest additions to their indulgences is their sit-down, Japanese dinner Wasabi By Morimoto. A truly exceptional experience that will surprise most guests, it includes circulatory appetizers which are an assortment of delicious cold canapés. In addition, they also serve pre-plated on-table bites like Artichoke Wasabi Taco and Gold-Leaf-Tipped as well as Fresh Raspberry Goat Cheese on Walnut Foot that will prep your taste buds for what is to follow. The 5-course meal starts with White Asparagus & Truffle Cappuccino in Short Cup with Toasted Brioche, as well as favorites from Wasabi like the signature Perigord, Avocado & Cream Cheese Sushi Roll with Spicy Mayo, accompanied with Champagne, Lychee and Gari Sorbet palate-cleansers to delight your senses. Save space for dessert – choose from a Bitter Semi-sweet Chocolate Fondant with Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream and Sea Salt, Chocolate Chip Crumble or a Strawberry Carpaccio with Rose Snow.
Taj Lake Palace, Udaipur
This mesmerizing 18th-century palace set on a 4-acre island in the middle of Lake Pichola is a dream wedding location for many. It boasts a host of luxurious interconnected venues overlooking the City Palace, Aravalli Hills, and Jag Mandir, which can accommodate up to 700 guests.

Each delicacy is inspired by age-old recipes from the kitchens of royalty, painstakingly prepared and presented in the traditional service set called ‘thaals’ and ‘handis’.

Guest favourites include Sarson Jhinga (prawns marinated in mustard seeds and coriander), Baplabati (bread “churma” served with lentils and butter), Nalli Gosht (succulent lamb shanks marinated in onions and spices) and of course, delectable desserts like Malai Ghewar (fried honeycomb pastry topped with reduced pistachio flavoured milk), Jalebi- Rabdi and Badam Ka Halwa (ground almond cooked in butter and milk).
Taj Falaknuma Palace, Hyderabad
Perched 2,000 feet above the twinkling City of Pearls, Taj Falaknuma Palace is famed for more than just its enchanting, opulent architecture and rich history. Within its fabled walls, this palace houses the legendary 101 Dining Hall where, it is said, the Nizam of Hyderabad frequently entertained royal guests. The venue serves a scrumptious spread for one hundred guests upon its 108-feet long, masterfully crafted dining table, fulfilling any couple’s fantasies of hosting a wedding that makes a luxurious statement but is also known for royalty. Leave your guests awestruck as they feast their eyes upon the Baroque grandeur of gold-gilded pilasters and Belgian chandeliers, whilst they indulging in the expert chefs’ specially crafted Hyderabadi delicacies. Add a touch of long-lost grandeur to your special day as Taj Falaknuma Palace recreates cherished, lavish state dining that is presented along with specially concocted beverages that say ‘nosh farmaiye’.
Taj Madikeri, Coorg
As you wed amidst the wilderness, surrounded by acres of lush rainforest and the splendor of traditional Kodagu architecture, indulge in a delectable, indigenous wedding feast like no other. Perfect for the nature-loving, down-to-earth couple, the kitchens of Nellaki are famed for their traditional Coorgi delicacies which are presented in the resort’s ballroom that overlooks the forest. Treat your wedding party to the signature local preparations that use salt brine instead of oil and the off-beat flavors of mushrooms, jackfruit, tender fern and more. However, if your palate leans away from these flavors, you can always opt to cater from Ferntree or the Poolside Grill, both of which offer delectable multi-cuisine and fresh-grilled masterpieces.
Every Indian celebration is incomplete without the perfect feast to suit the occasion. Famed for their highly trained and internationally acclaimed team of chefs, The Taj Hotels specialize in crafting the sumptuous spread to match your dream celebration.
