Strike A Pose: The Best Pre-Wedding Shoot Locations In Mumbai

Ten-Second Takeaway

We all look at friends’ Facebook profiles {whether we like it or not} where pre-wedding shoots take them to exotic locations at home and abroad. Suprisingly, Mumbai with all its chaos, offers many places too.

Sure your Facebook friend hired a wedding planner and decided to go to Udaipur to shoot her pre-wedding shoot, go to Phuket for her bachelorette party, and then had a big fat wedding in some country whose name you probably couldn’t pronounce.  A little exorbitant we think, but then, to each their own.

When you actually look at it, Mumbai has its own charm and several spots across the city that can make your pre-wedding shoot perfect.

Outside Asiatic Library

The old gigantic building is an architectural marvel. Think of the perfect pose as the photographer shoots at an incline making it appear that the roof is actually the peak or summit. Quite romantic!

The Tip Of Marine Drive

With the waves colliding onto the rocks as your background, this shoot will be quite fun, even though your photographer will have to take necessary precautions to ensure her/his camera doesn’t get damaged by the water! Mist-kissed and happy in love – it’s one spot that really brings out the best feelings once could have.

Sanjay Gandhi National Park

Amidst the greenery; if you’re lucky you may even have a deer in the background. But think about a shoot at Sanjay Gandhi National Park. It’s quiet and there aren’t many people around. Ah, the perfect recipe for a jungle romance.

Hanging Gardens

Another destination in south Mumbai, Hanging Gardens offers you the chance to pose alongside plant sculptures and the giant boot you’ve probably had childhood memories of, just to add to the drama of the shoot.

Bonus: Stop over at Nepean Sea Road for that old-world charm of forgotten Bombay.

    Bandra Bandstand

    With the Bandra-Worli Sealink in the background, this is a spot that signifies the city and how much it means to a Mumbaikar. It’s the perfect setting for your perfect romance.

    Gateway of India

    Although at the southernmost tip of the city, it is the heart that defines Mumbai. Imagine an early morning shoot here. The sunlight rising from the east, its golden hues bathing you, gentle sea sprays kissing your face and the view – perfection. Seriously, could it get any better than this?

      Do check with your photographer for permissions at these places. It’d require a few days, so plan in advance.
