Why you should be Planning an Indian Wedding in Barcelona
Wedding Planner: Barcelona Brides
Wedding Photographer: Ed Pereira
Planning an Indian wedding is certainly no simple and easy feat, wherever the destination! It must be rich in detail, authenticity and be able to relate seamlessly to the very culture itself! It’s important that the planning must incorporate all the traditions and intricacies at the heart of an Indian wedding to be truly authentic. If done correctly, the ceremony and celebrations around it will fully embrace proper Indian culture.
Barcelona is a fantastic destination for an Indian wedding. A well-known fact is that Indian weddings are huge; full of lively celebrations, with extensive family and guests all loving a good party. Barcelona has plenty to offer, with more than enough space, culture and architecture to stand up to this! Speaking as a wedding planner in Barcelona, I can say without a doubt this stunning city has a beautiful selection of venues, large and small, catering to all preferences, styles and tastes.
A Slice of Luxury
The Dolce Sitges is a stunning example of such a venue. This hotel is truly a one-stop shop for anyone planning large Indian wedding celebrations. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and Catalonian mountains, the views are breath-taking and perfect for setting-up a traditional Mandap in all its glory, in the lush, expansive grounds.
The main building houses a striking ballroom style function suite, overlooking the grounds. An excellent place to host the joyful Sangeet and Mehndi event. Perfect, even for the main wedding reception, with spectacular lighting effects, large guest capacity and state of the art entertainment equipment. Plenty of space for traditional Indian dancing! Take a look at our beautiful Gujarati couple, Tina and Jayant’s wedding. These guys wanted to incorporate Catalan and Indian wedding traditions together. So, we helped to make that possible, from their décor, right through to Jayant’s fantastic Baraat entrance in a vintage Barcelona SEAT car!
If you are looking for something slightly different, however, the Palau Requesens is definitely the place to go! Beautiful, but with an ancient glamour, this palace with a 350-guest capacity, exudes just the right amount of gothic beauty for planning a magical Indian wedding celebration. Why not indulge in their spectacular fire show as part of the wedding reception?

Lastly, there is the wonderous Castell de Caramany, an elegant, rural, castle in the town of Corçà. Steeped in Catalonian history and just outside of the city of Barcelona, this castle will ignite the true sense of an authentic Indian wedding. Vast and luscious grounds can be seen for miles, again, perfect for a Mandap, or even for the groom’s procession on his white horse with his family and friends to the altar.
