ICONIC CITY WEDDINGS AND BANQUETS
A wedding that your heart desires: The grandest locations, the most lavish banquets, and the choicest wine lists.
The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai
A Mumbai wedding just has to be at The Taj Mahal Palace. And who better to host it than the city's own grand dame?
It is, after all, the palace that took its place in history 21 years before the Gateway of India. It is the dome that features in every artist’s etchings of the Mumbai harbour. It is the first hotel in India to have had electricity. It is the hotel that housed India’s first ever licensed bar.
It is where Hussain, Jahangir Sabavala, Ara and V.S. Gaitonde hang their works in a manner that can only be described as matter-of-fact. It is the place where the old Palace Wing still makes you speak a little softer once you enter its hallowed corridors. It is the Taj.
And as for the romance that surrounds it? How would you like to be married in a place where Lennon and Yoko Ono spent five days in a suite without stepping out for even a minute? Or where the Beatles could have composed a love song?
for the experiences that The Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai, offers, we recommend a wedding night at our heritage Rajput Suite – where a single-touch button lights up this carefully restored suite that is distinguished by an antique swing. Or an intimate dinner at Chef Hemant Oberoi's signature Chef Studio – where ambrosial food decorates Versace, designed Rosenthal crockery and wine is drunk in Riedel goblets as a toast to the beginning of your life together.
Ballroom And Crystal Room - True to tradition, the Ballroom and the Crystal Rooms still echo with the sounds of lavish feasts being served on pure silver salvers. Making them the perfect venue for glittering wedding events such as yours.
In the 1920s, it was where the Maharajahs entertained lavishly as guests vied with each other for a repeat invitation. In the 1930s, it was the first place in India to witness the birth of jazz, cabaret and the tango. In the 1940s, it was the first air-conditioned ballroom. In 1980, it was the first to bring down Michelin-star chefs and change the palates of the country forever.
Today you'll find that these versatile rooms are still reminiscent of the twelve-bar blues. They still tell tales of sit-down dinners, when Mumbai was Bombay and Bombay ended at Bandra. They still tell tales of how they were resplendent with the bejewelled turbans of the Maharajahs. The three Crystal Rooms - Central, North and South - with their imposing carved pillars and late 19th century chandeliers remember tradition while functioning as a modern gathering space. The rooms can be used on their own or combined as one room, with the North and South Rooms serving as adjunct rooms for cocktails and dinner.
