Why is there a need to identify the best pre-wedding shoot location you can find? Well, after scavenging through the entire Chandni Chowk (Delhi), Aminabad Bazaar in (Lucknow), Dhalgarwad market (Gujarat) for the original copy of a Manish Malhotra bridal lehenga, no, you cannot have your pre-wedding shoot in a studio with a cheesy silk curtain as your backdrop.

And no, you cannot do a “Tujhe Dekha To Ye Jana Sanam” with your would-be in a studio. No!

Weddings are no small affair, then how can your pre-wedding photoshoots be. Everything about weddings is miraculous, nothing short of magical. But before you walk down the aisle, before you reach the altar, before you say, “Yes, I do!” take the hand of your would-be and have a Suraj Hua Maddham-Esque pre-wedding photoshoot and please, backyards and terraces won’t do, especially, when some of the best pre-wedding shoot locations are in India only.

Weddings are meant to be special and so do pre-wedding shoots. Because in both cases, you are not going to have another one, so better choose your pre-wedding shoot locations wisely. Here’s a list of some hand-curated pre-wedding shoot locations in India that are not only romantic but absolutely #instaworthy.

Taj Mahal, Agra

Taj Mahal Agra

And what could be a better pre-wedding shoot location than the ‘Symbol of Love’ itself? This grand mausoleum made of white marble was built by Emporer Shahan Jahan in remembrance of his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal. Taj Mahal is the finest example of Mughal architecture and an eternal symbol of love. Now, imagine this exquisite monument as the backdrop of your pre-wedding photoshoot. Absolutely magnificent!

Chand Baori, Abhaneri, Rajasthan

Chand Baori Abhaneri Rajasthan

Just one stepwell photoshoot and you are all done. Nothing can beat a stepwell shoot and this very fact makes Chand Baori in Abhaneri, Rajasthan, one of the best pre-wedding shoot locations in India. All you need is a little creativity and a lot of colour in your shoot, and you are all set to nail a grand Bollywood style photoshoot with your would-be. Chand Baori is one of the popular pre-wedding shoot places in India so you might have to schedule your shoot keeping the availability in consideration. Our advice would be to go for winters. The weather would be pleasant and you can very well pull off a bohemian themed pre-wed or you can go for a colourful one if you want. Either way, you are going to have some pretty aesthetic memories here.

French Colonies, Pondicherry

French Colonies Pondicherry

With one yellow wall and a thousand pre-wedding photoshoot ideas, French Colonies in Pondicherry is one of the best places for a pre-wedding shoot. From elegant wedding gowns to traditional lehengas, from a classic three-piece suit to contemporary indo-western sherwani, these walls can turn any pre-wed dreamy. Who needs Santorini when you have the French quarters?! This White Town area is amongst the best locations for pre-wedding shoot in India. Couples from all over India throng this area in the wedding season. And that is why; visiting here in the off-season would allow you to have a peaceful pre-wedding photoshoot.

Rushikonda, Visakhapatnam

Rushikonda Visakhapatnam

Are we keeping the beaches out? No one can do. A beach pre-wed is a dream-come-true for many. However, Goa and Gokarna are too popular and too overdone. Here, Rushikonda, in Visakhapatnam is a hidden gem, fairly fresh and not that crowded because people haven’t really discovered the wholesome beauty of this place. Surrounded by green valleys, emerald waters lapping at the clean sandy beaches, your photoshoots will be as magical as you want them to be sans the crowd. With just the mesmerizingly peaceful ocean as your backdrop, Rushikonda, Visakhapatnam is one of the best pre-wedding shoot places in India that hasn’t been discovered by all yet.

Gulmarg, Jammu and Kashmir

Gulmarg Jammu And Kashmir

Ye haseen vaadiyan ye khula aasman… and no other pre-wedding shoot location can turn your pre-wed shoot as ethereal as Gulmarg. Surrounded by majestic valleys, the expanse of the flowery meadow of Gulmarg makes it one of the best pre-wedding shoot places in India, and not just pre-wedding. Gulmarg has been classified as one of the best places in India for photography. You may found quite many shutterbugs, trying their best to capture the heavenly beauty of Gulmarg in their lenses. Counted amongst the best photoshoot places in India, Gulmarg is also very popular for professional photoshoots as well. And mark our words, no matter what season you visit Gulmarg, your pre-wed shoot will have that magical feel to it.

Dal Lake, Srinagar

Dal Lake Srinagar

After stepwells, beaches, and valleys, one place that outshines all is a lake and when it is Dal Lake, nothing can come even closer. The best place for photography in India, Dal Lake in Srinagar is one of the most sought-after tourist destinations. With the calm waters of the lake, the majestic valleys, and cute little shikaras, Dal Lake looks right out of a fairytale. Dal Lake is more than just a beautiful pre-wedding shoot location; it is a place where you may fall in love with your beloved would-be. An evening ride in the shikara, faint folk Kashmiri songs flowing in the air, the sky painted in the hues of the lake, and just you two, Dal Lake perfect for the lovers, for the people in love. A pre-wedding shoot can be your excuse to know your would-be better and have some memorable moment with each other.

Hauz Khas Village, Delhi

Hauz Khas Village Delhi

Last not the least, Hauz Khas Village in Delhi is one of the most popular pre-wedding shoot locations in India. Open throughout the year, Hauz Khas Village boasts of a wide expanse of green cover with a beautiful lake right in the middle of it. A haven for photography enthusiasts, Hauz Khas Village happens to be one of the best pre-wedding shoot locations in India. Along with a monument and a good range of flora and fauna to be a part of your pre-wedding shoot, one can find an eclectic range of cafés and lounges in Hauz Khas that allow pre-wed photoshoots. When you wish to have a stylish pre-wed without spending a moolah, Hauz Khas Village is your go-to place.

Weddings are a one-time thing and so is pre-wedding shoots. There are so many pre-wedding shoot places in India; you just need to find one that suits your taste and preference. It is all about creating memories; pre-weddings are just here to add a dash of magic to those memories.
