If you are planning a destination shoot, then take a look here. One of these spots could be right near you!

1. Munnar

Munnar is essentially the most popular resort town in Kerala. Studded with picturesque towns, sprawling tea plantations, winding roads and a misty climate, this beautiful town is our top choice as a wedding photography destination.

2. Varkala

Varkala is referred to as “the hidden treasure of Kerala.” It is truly one of the most underrated wedding photography destinations. It is a mini-Goa inside Kerala, with its hippie culture, amazing shacks and cafes, pristine beaches, cliffs, lakes, lighthouses and so much more. 

3. Alleppey (Alappuzha)

Known as “the Venice of the East,” Alleppey is famous for its huge network of inland waterways and the thousands of houseboats that run those waters. The laidback canals, lush greenery, the lakes and the beaches will be perfect for your wedding shoot.

4. Wayanad

Dotted with innumerous tourist attractions, Wayanad offers you untouched woods, misty mountains, and long spread plantations. The dams, wildlife reserves and national parks can give your photos a heavenly edge. 

5. Kochi

Kochi is the busiest city in Kerala and is often called its financial capital. Having said that, what makes it interesting for us are the same things that have been drawing people from all over the world to its shores for over 600 years. An unlikely blend of medieval Portugal and Holland and an English village grafted onto the tropical Malabar Coast.

6. Kumarakom

Kumarakom is another backwater destination that is dotted with luxuriant vegetation and paddy fields. It is a cluster of islands on the Vembanad Lake, the largest lake in South India. The lake and the nearby waterfalls and rubber plantations offer a unique photography experience. 

7. Bekal

Bekal is a small town in the district of Kasargod. It is most famous for the Bekal fort which has made an appearance in a countless number of movies. The fort is shaped like a giant keyhole and is surrounded by the Arabian sea on three sides. Magical is the word you’re looking for right now.

8. Ponmudi

A tiny hill station that is cradled amidst alluring valleys that is covered in mist most of the year. The name ‘Ponmudi’ itself means ‘Golden Crown,’ signifying the celestial beauty that it is. 

9. Vagamon

Vagamon is your perfect photoshoot destination if you are an adventure loving couple. It offers activities such as trekking, rock climbing, paragliding and cycling through the mountains.  Also, the tea garden, pine forests, waterfalls, mesmerising meadows are some other major attractions of this place.

10. Ottappalam

Ottapalam is a famous town in Palakkad, but has been a lesser known wedding photography destination. It is home to numerous places of worship and colourful festivals. Also, the ever famous Varikkasseri Mana, where Malayalam films are shot almost round the year, is located here.

11. Thekkady

Thekkady is yet another natural getaway to plan your ideal photoshoot in the green lushy splendour. Quaint little hamlets in the middle of nowhere and wildlife sanctuaries featuring majestic elephants and fearsome tigers are the major attractions.
