Experience a Dream Wedding at Taj Fisherman's Cove!


The Vivanta Taj Fisherman's Cove Wedding

Are you dreaming of a wedding that is both beautiful and unforgettable? Look no further than Taj Fisherman's Cove! Located in the picturesque beach town of Mahabalipuram, just outside of Chennai, this destination resort offers the perfect venue for your special day.

A lovely double wedding by the beach happened at Vivanta Taj Fisherman's Cove in March 2017. We were planning it for over 6 months; you can pick up lots of decor inspirations from this post. Who wouldn't get excited about a beach wedding or a destination wedding? It gets more interesting when it is two Tambrahm brides who are getting married on the same day, at the same venue?! It was quite a visual treat and an unique personal experience for the entire Marriage Colours team.

Imagine exchanging vows on a stunning beach, with the sound of crashing waves and the gentle touch of sea breeze creating an enchanting ambiance. The bride, radiant in her traditional Indian attire, walks with her radiant smile, down the aisle towards her groom. The groom, waiting expectantly, receives her with a wide grin, love and anticipation overflowing from his eyes. As they stand together under a beautifully decorated stage, surrounded by their loved ones, the ceremony begins. It was a wonderful celebration of their love and the start of their journey as a married couple.

Wedding, Day 1

The day began when the guests started landing, beginning early morning and our travel desk team was ready in anticipation. One team was at the airport and another at the venue to receive the guests. The Taj Fisherman's Cove team was incredibly helpful with the getting the rooms ready on time.

They made sure that the rooms were ready, for the guests to comfortably and seamlessly check in. Needless to say the travel desk activity had to begin a couple of months before. Chasing guests for their travel details, visa documents and also planning their additional travel plans, was a tedious task well done. It seemed like a never ending task though, for Mahesh (Marriage Colours) and Gautham (Fish Cove).

We planned for a holi party with some Gujarati live music, dhol and dandiya dancers to entertain the guests checking in, the function extending till 5:00 pm. Renjith and Vijna along with their troupe welcomed the evening with Seetha kalyanam, meanwhile we had the destination sangeet set up ready for late evening - honestly one of the best beach sangeet we have planned; with short round tables, divans, Moroccan style lanterns, great family numbers by the guests and it went till late in the night.

In a Taj Fisherman's Cove Wedding, every detail is carefully curated to ensure that your wedding day is nothing short of perfect. You only need to choose this resort as your wedding destination. From that moment on, the resort's dedicated team will work closely with you, to bring your vision to life. Whether you prefer a vibrant and colorful theme or a more traditional and elegant decor, they have the expertise to make it happen.

Wedding, Day 2

Kick start day 2, with the both the grooms entering the Machan, Taj Fisherman's Cove in style. While their respective best men pedalled the Marigold decorated rickshaws, the accompaniment was the boisterous Chenda Melam drummers of Kerala. We had an amazing Oonjal ceremony right on the beach, followed by beach wedding and sumptuous south Indian plantain leaf lunch. Majority of guests were from the UK and other parts of the world and many were having south Indian lunch for the first time. The Taj Fisherman's Cove team made sure they all enjoyed their lunch to the fullest.

The team lead by Venkat and Joe was busy flawlessly executing the decor happening at the New beach lawn. At the same time, Parithi and Prem made sure that the muhurtham, banquet and return gifts were taken care of seamlessly.

In the evening, we had lounge style casual seating with bulbs hanging all over the top. The entire clan was waiting in anticipation, as the bride and the groom, in their brightly painted auto, put-putted through the decorated light tunnel! It was an awesome sight to behold. Staccato, the Chennai based band known for their contemporary classic numbers, played some brilliant number to sooth the guests and there was a surprise campfire for all the guests late into the night and the guests spent their time singing and chatting by the sea next to the new beach lawn. Taj Fisherman's Cove is truly an amazing choice for destination wedding cum beach wedding in Chennai.

Without a doubt, the Taj Fisherman's Cove offers a breathtaking venue for your wedding ceremony. On the other hand, it also offers a range of services to enhance your wedding experience. Treat yourself to a pre-wedding spa session at their luxurious spa, where you can relax and rejuvenate before the big day. Their talented team can also assist in planning other events such as sangeet performances or family functions. They ensure that nothing is left out and every aspect of your celebration is taken care of.

Wedding, Day 3

In our experience of managing lots of weddings and guided tours, we always have guests showing up late. But this time, they were all on time in spite of two long and tiring days. We had lined up 15 odd Tempos and some cars for the guests. And, every tempo was full, in fact even the local guests went to Mahabalipuram bearing the heat. Ram and team ensured that lunch served at the Adyar Ananda Bhavan left none of the guests out.

Destination wedding beach cricket

Most of the guests were in Mahabs, both the grooms were planning for beach cricket. There were about 8 teams altogether. Playing with tennis balls, we pitched 4 wickets; with additional stumps and bats. It was a colourful sight to behold, at the beach; luckily the climate was also pretty cool. We had the final game planned with some Caribbean style music, water melons and coconuts. Chilled beer was also there for the asking, at the beach near the new beach lawn of Fish cove.

While this was happening, Venkat and Joe were planning for the final day's decoration. The last session was the reception celebrations for the second couple. For this event, the entire lighting was changed to create a mood for the evening. Also, name cards on the tables created a feel of importance for all the guests. As the guests watched over, the groom made a grand entry in an epic Contessa classic (the groom is a fan of Muscle cars). As a topping on the cake, we also unveiled the couple's portrait in Bollywood style with pyros to boot!!

The night went even wilder with DJ Karan spinning his tunes and the action went till the wee hours of the morning.

Choosing Taj Fisherman's Cove as your wedding destination is not just about having a beautiful setting. It is about creating memories that will last a lifetime. They have this impeccable service, attention to detail, and commitment to making your dream wedding come true. This attitude makes this resort truly stands out as the best choice for couples looking to tie the knot in India.

Taj Fisherman's Cove Wedding Cost

Once you have decided to have a grand destination wedding in Chennai, the wedding cost should not be a dampener. However, for the purpose of satisfying our curiosity, room costs start from 15000 INR plus taxes approximately.

The resort may offer a buyout if you need to have the entire resort to yourselves for your grand wedding.
