Netflix’s The Big Day, produced by Condé Nast India, was released on the platform on February 14th and is fast becoming the second most popular show on Netflix right now. The six-part documentary series examines modern relationships through the lens of Indian weddings. Presented in full color, it’s a visual delight. Two Indian forts / palaces that have been converted into grand palace hotels – Alila Fort Bishangarh and Tijara Fort Palace – set the scene in the first episode of The Big Day. Let’s step into it.
In the royal wedding venues featured on Netflix’s The Big Day
1. Alila Fort Bishangarh
Have you ever imagined a Fort Palace hotel with an infinity pool? Take a look at this picture first and then let’s go into the details of the spellbinding property.
The infinity pool at Alila Fort Bishangarh
Alila Fort Bishangarh makes the most of its architectural heritage. Alila Fort Bishangarh is one of the best locations for your wedding in the whole country and can be yours for 1.5 billion rupees for a three day all inclusive wedding party on the site. The fort is built on top of a small hill and offers great views from the pool, the room or even the sun beds of your choice.
2. Tijara Fort Palace
The 40-room Aam Khas Mardana Mahal and the 23-room Rani Mahal for a more compact group are two options to choose from for your large event at the Tijara Fort Palace. The scenic venue in Rajasthan offers expansive views of mustard fields and hanging gardens that populate the fort on all sides. The 19th century property is the perfect blend of beautiful historic buildings (think high ceilings, round pillars and wide hallways) and modern conveniences. Check out this video made by Neemrana Hotels who have held authority over the property since it was converted to a palace hotel.
