A wedding witnessed by the sound of crashing waves, blessed by Lord Jagannath and soaked in the warmth of the holy sun — you know we are bringing Odisha as your dream wedding.
The sun is known to shine bright with history in this holy city that holds testimony to shrines and monumental structures built with the most powerful entity in this world — belief. Odisha is filled with colours of rich heritage, warm people and the most famous rath yatra.
We bring you an arch of three places to host your intimate wedding festivities that promise to add the perfect flavour of spiritual and historical treasures. The golden triangle of Odisha begins with its capital city Bhubaneswar, proceeds to Puri and completes at Konark.
The capital city’s temple architecture has been magnetising travellers from the world across. Known as the temple city of India, Bhubaneswar has been a diverse town cradling the mammoth industries of the modern world in one arm and history in the other. Begin your wedding celebrations with your sagan-sangeet ceremony at the LEED Platinum Certified Welcomhotel By ITC Hotels, Bhubaneswar. The five-star property offers four banquets, curated culinary experiences, and specialised spa and wellness services, among others. The 107 architecturally rich rooms and suites that are considered a modern ode to the ancient city add to your guests’ pleasurable stay.
The place is best to kick start wedding celebrations at the three banquets that combine to give you a capacity of 300 guests. The hotel promises to offer inimitable hospitality and delectable flavours of their much-awarded indigenous cuisines served at their signature Peshawri, Swizzle, WelcomCafe and the Sunbean Café. You can also book temple visits and sightseeing tours right from here, including those to the famous shiva dedication – Lingaraja Temple.
Puri & Konark
Bow down to the holy city of Puri, the home of siblings Lord Jagannath, Goddess Subhadra and Lord Balrama. Otherwise known synonymously for its famous ratha yatra, the city is symbolic of one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. So pristine is the combination of a bed of flowers, gleaming sand and the gushing sea that we chose this city for your beach-wedding destination.
The two Mayfair hotels – Mayfair Heritage and Mayfair Waves at Niladri beach can be your destination with a combined stay capacity of 68 luxury rooms and suites. Located opposite each other overlooking the beach, the hotels offer a completely private entourage for your guests. While The Shacks at the poolside in the new Mayfair Waves can host your bachelor celebrations with drinks, mouth-watering snacks and tapping shoes, haldi and tel can be celebrated at the sandstone-coloured poolside exteriors of Mayfair Heritage with an accommodation of 200-300 family and friends. For your perfect wedding blessed by the sea waves, Mayfair Heritage’s lush lawns can take the lead.
The two hotels offer Samudra, Two States By Kanika and The Verandah for a memorable culinary experience. Special temple bookings for Shree Jagannath Temple Puri, are taken here for added ease for your guests and family.
No one can comprehend how long the temples of the east date back in history. The famous sun-temple or the Konark Temple is situated 35 km from Puri and is visual to behold. The grandiosity of the monument and its mysterious history is a treat to any visitor. Today it stands in beautiful ruins, foretelling a history lost to its holy air. Apart from a sun-down visit to the temple, a pre-booked sound and light show can offer a great experience to your guests.
As our special addition to the Golden Triangle Of The East, we bring Gopalpur as your wedding reception destination. The land of calming vibes is perfect for welcoming your family and guests. Spread over serene 12-acres greenery and pale teal corridors lit by the sun, the five-star luxury resort is your answer for an opulent post-wedding celebration.
Stunning views overlook the banquets, rooms and suites from every corner of this place. Fresh garden and sea picks set the dining experience another notch up at this palm beach resort. Self-appointed 45 luxury rooms, suites and villas open to blue skies and a serene sand-sea experience.
The resort is a wildered combination of greenery and sea waves amidst a dining experience that is specially curated for its guests by the kitchens of 1914 Dining Room, Lighthouse Bar, Varandah, Pool Bar and Beach Bar. The banquet can effortlessly host up to 200 guests, while the open-air venue can host grand celebrations for up to 1500 attendees.
