Divine Destinations (Part Two)

In this second instalment of the search for the ultimate wedding destination, Black Pearl Weddings are taking our attention over to the exotic continent of Asia; specifically, we are focusing on a special location inside the beautiful country of India – the magnificent Taj Mahal.

Situated Agra, Uttar Pradesh, this marble wonder is classed as a World Heritage site. A collaboration of traditional Mughal style and Persian architecture, the Taj Mahal dates back to the 1630’s, built in tribute to the memory of the then emperor Shah Jahan beloved wife died. A symbol of absolute love, the Taj Mahal is truly a romantic location, echoing a message of devotion through the centuries, for the whole world to see.

Moving from India across to Thailand, Black Pearl Weddings now find our focus on a much more recent construction, the inimitable Wat Rong Khun. Known outside of Thailand as the “White Temple”, construction actually began in the late 1990’s and is estimated to take another 90 years until the vision is completely realised! However, even at this stage, there are few architectural equivalents of this awe-inspiring temple. You could even become a part of history by having a ceremony here…

Moving South-East Black Pearl Weddings are now contemplating an Antipodean venue. Home to some of the greatest shows on earth, stylish design, and surrounded by the Royal Botanic Gardens and Sydney Harbour, this venue could comfortably house a ceremony of any size. Additionally, sourcing live music would probably not take too much effort!

Themes and designs would look truly incredible with this building as your canvas.

Our penultimate selection here truly embodies the heart of mystique and extravagance. Spanning the corners of both Asia and Africa, it is truly one of the most amazing places on the globe. Home to the only remaining member of the Seven Wonders of the World, The Great Pyramid of Giza, among a number of other splendours, it is of course, Egypt.

As opposed to our previous selections, Black Pearl Weddings would suggest that this could be a breath taking location for an outdoor ceremony. We feel that the ultimate backdrop to your day would be the mysterious sphinx, alongside the 3 pyramids outside of Cairo. Assuming you can take the heat, this could be a ceremony fit for a pharaoh, in a setting that has truly stood the test of time, spanning over 5 millennia.

Drawing our blog search to a close, Black Pearl Weddings have selected two places we feel are jointly suited to housing a truly romantic outdoor occasion. The first is the Maldives, a small republic located in the Indian Ocean.  Coupled up white sands and crystal blue ocean, with tropical palms and magical underwater restaurants, with views of oceanic life passing by, the Maldives would certainly set the mood for a relaxing and loving honeymoon like no other.

And finally, in contrast to the previous selection, we look at Iceland. With volcanic springs, the indulgent blue lagoon, and one of nature’s greatest phenomena, the Northern Lights, Iceland truly has an array of gorgeous features to suit your special day.
