There are times when a regular wedding in Goa just won’t do. How many have had weddings in five-star hotels, had a swarm of guests they can’t keep track of and ended the night so exhausted the only thought is to sleep? How about an Off-beat destination wedding in Goa that is not just different, but memorable for you and your guests? It’ll be the wedding they speak of through the years as being refreshingly unusual and simply unforgettable not just because it was at a Fort.
Choosing Fort Tiracol Heritage Hotel to host your oFF-Bdestination wedding in Goa means you have the best of everything the sunshine state has to offer – gorgeous location with a stunning view, a quiet beach without the crowds, fabulous fresh food and an absolutely relaxed state of mind. The management has tremendous experience in world-class hospitality so you can have weddings of any religious denomination you like, or none at all if that’s what you prefer!
Hindu destination weddings in Goa are incomplete without a gorgeous mandap tastefully decorated with fragrant flowers, lights, and shells if you want to add in that beach-side element. You can opt to have pretty chairs on the mandap, tatami mats or thick mattresses covered in a stark white that puts the spotlight on the bridal trousseau.
Surrounding the mandap, gorgeous wrought-iron chairs daintily decorated with matching mandap flowers can be set out for guests. This beautifully intimate setting makes your friends and families so much more a part of your wedding ceremony than having them watch you on a huge stage from afar.
For Catholic destination weddings in Goa, look no further than the church of St Anthony of Padua smack bang in the center of the fort. St Anthony is one of Goa’s favourite saints and is known as the ‘marriage saint’ in Portugal, Spain, and Brazil. So you need look no further for the most ideal church to start this new chapter in your lives.
The church at Fort Tiracol Heritage Hotel, though old (it was built in the 1700s), combines heritage and contemporary with ease. It is large, airy, and has a beautiful altar from which the celebrant can lead the nuptial proceedings. A vine full of flowers draped across the doorway of the church makes for a gorgeous entrance, while pews decorated with swathes of shimmery or dainty fabric add a fairytale touch to your Catholic destination wedding in Goa.
You could choose any of the locations in and around Fort Tiracol Heritage Hotel for Christian destination weddings in Goa, or even nuptials that don’t conform to any religious belief. On wind-swept cliffs overlooking the azure Arabian Sea, a simple archway decorated with ribbons and flowers offers an almost movie-like frame for wedding photographs.
If you choose sunset as the time of day to exchange vows, be assured of a spectacular celestial display that changes with the moment. The 180-degree view of the sea from a cliff surrounded by rich greenery has few equals in India, and this could be the perfect location for your Christian destination wedding in Goa.
For the reception and other events, the ramparts, berms and other spaces offer excellent venues to celebrate. The large turrets present an innovative intimate option for smaller functions such as rehearsal dinners, sunset mehendi sessions, sangeets and tilak ceremonies.
Wedding decorators have created enchanting ambiances with natural or wrought-iron furniture, pretty ornaments, table décor and lighting that enhances the entire setting.
You’ll find that choosing Fort Tiracol Heritage Hotel for your destination wedding in Goa gives you the opportunity to host a classy affair that stands apart from the norm, a celebration that will go down in the books as one to remember.
