Pomegranate is synonymous for its urbane and artful approach to design. The interiors of Ritz are influenced by French renaissance and late gothic architecture. The colour scheme is a neutral white and grey tone.
Stunning tall gothic pillars and ceiling artistry is indicative of the era. It is built on the elegant lines of a chateaux, less ornate, but perfectly proportioned and elegantly executed. The simple lines and lack of excessive decoration make this easily transformable as per client brief.
The landscaping around the space is done in a signature French chateaux style similar to those found at palace of Versailles. A staircase leads to the upper deck, which gives the attendees a beautiful view of the golf course adjacent to the venue.
The upper deck also looks over the grand mandap below it which is a large wrought iron structure inspired by French fountains dating back to the 18th century, and undoubtedly brings back the charm of France to Ritz.
The dining is fanciful and medieval in character. The dining has impressive flooring and arches adorning it. The ceiling of the dining is adorned with wrought iron chandeliers and crystal chandeliers. The entrance of Ritz makes for a great photo op for couples as it has a large number of vintage lampposts arranged to create a forest of light.
Gayatri has played with different vintage furnishings and layering of textures and materials in the lounge sitting of Ritz. The whole concept is centered on atmosphere, character, and texture bringing a sense of harmony to the space. The interiors of Ritz are striking in tone and contrast and characteristically different.
The couple’s stage has an intricate lace pattern design. Lace has been hugely trending at events this year and has found its way into home ware and interiors as well! Lace was incorporated into the backdrop of the stage along with a wall of flowers to give an ethereal timeless look.
The performance stage at the Ritz has a panoramic picture of the Eiffel tower as the backdrop and a structure that enables the most sophisticated set ups in terms of sound, projection, lighting etc.
Ritz is now amongst the most sought-after venues to celebrate luxurious weddings as it features simple but elegant décor and carries through a wide array of facilities.
