On Nov 23, Momente Weddings organized a 3-day wedding at the 64-room Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, one of the world's largest private residences.

The spectacular 26-acre venue is infused with unmatched delights at every turn, exquisite dining experiences, the attentive service of palace butlers, spectacular themed evenings exuding royal tradition and more!

The varmala was held at the Rotunda of the palace, with the bride and her father entering the venue along with six shankh pandits lining the path blowing the conch to announce their arrival.
