Couples and photographers in Chennai, planning a pre-wedding shoot? Well your search ends here. From traditional cottages to scenic beaches and even monuments, here’s your guide to some offbeat shooting spots in the city before you say “I do”!
Pre-Wedding Shoot Locations In & Around Chennai Made For That Perfect Shot
This museum of art and architecture provides beautiful heritage houses as the backdrop for your pre-wedding photo shoot. Pose in front of gorgeous traditional homes from Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu! If you’re looking for a lovely ethnic theme to your shoot, then DakshinaChitra’s Chettinad pillars and well-crafted doors are picture-perfect!
Price: INR 100 entry fee. Pay an additional INR 50 for using an SLR camera and INR 75 for a video camera
We are sure at some point in life, you fancied posing against rustic engines and vacant railway tracks. Well here’s your chance to do exactly that! Take a left before the Royapuram bridge and you’ll walk into this rare location for your shoot. Explore this undiscovered corner and get your filmy shots done against their colourful parked trains.
This out-of-a-movie spot, is just a 45 minute drive from the city. The pathway on the sea along the Ennore beach is filled with rocks on both the sides and is a breezy spot for your shoot. Reminding us of Pondicherry and even Marine Drive, the Ennore beach is even better during pleasant and light shower evenings (this is for an off-shoot day, of course). We would say, right before sunset is the best time to head here and get your shots clicked.
Green Meadows Resort
This ECR resort filled with traditional cottages and lush greenery, is the spot for an out and out pre-wedding shoot. Get both your cliche and candid shots photographed against their artistic villas. You could also consider their boutique halls for your wedding!
Price: You can pre-book your shoot at INR 5,000 plus tax
Our favourite getaway from the city is full of chill spots to capture memories of a lifetime. For chic and uber cool shots by the bay, head to the beach next to the Santana restaurant. This beach has rocks by the waters, colourful boats, local fishing nets and the beautiful Shore Temple to fill the frame.
Another favourite spot for shoots at Mahabs, is definitely the Shore Temple. With a minimal entry free, get some awesome shots at this classic monument by the sea.
Everyone loves some sun and sand for their shoots. And Chennai’s East Coast Road has the prettiest and cleaner beaches for couples hunting for sun-kissed spots. Two of the most recommended locations are the VGP & Juhu Beach. Flaunt your white gowns, suits and flowery dresses by clear waters and blue skies at these beaches. On the other side are also a row of trees and walls to get more memorable shots and amazing silhouette pictures.
