Where: Gairatpur Bas Village, Tikli, Gurgaon

Price: Packages start at INR 11,000 for a day

Contact: +91 9818039382, 0124 2766556

In the by lanes of Lodhi Colony are a bunch of brightly painted, colourful walls that provide the perfect backdrop for a pre-wedding shoot that has a bit of character. The best part—since this is public property, it’s free for use. We love how photographer Shiv Sharma used these for a pre-wedding shoot recently.

Where: Meherchand Market, Lodhi Road

Price: Free

Dusit Devarana

HKV is home to a host of things you could use—the lake, the fort, the deer park right behind it {which, if you are quiet enough, you can utilise without too many people noticing you}, and the by lanes that can give that busy, worn out vibe that looks great in photos.

Where: Hauz Khas

Price: Free

Connaught Place

This may seem like an odd choice for a pre-wedding shoot venue, but we love how the team at The Creative Lens made use of the location by incorporating vintage, minimalist elements for a shoot that looks like it has come straight out of a seventies movie.

Price: Free

Don’t worry; we thought this was weird when we first heard this suggestion, but then we saw some absolutely stunning, old-school shots with vintage Maharaja trains in the background and it didn’t t take too long to fall in love with this setting.

Where: Shanti Path, Chanakyapuri

Price: Free
