An absolutely beautiful place with a characteristic rustic charm, The Peacock grove, our wedding venue, is still being talked about amongst our family and friends even after a month of our wedding celebrations. My husband jokes that I chose the venue first and then chose to marry him!! Well, I couldn’t help falling in love with an architecturally poetic and serene property in the midst of the city’s hustle and bustle. I had always hoped to have an intimate, eco-friendly wedding. Thanks to the Covid pandemic, the wedding ceremony remained intimate but having a green wedding wasn’t entirely possible. However, this outdoor venue with its ample lighting and natural beauty helped us reduce the energy expenditure to some extent, due to decreased requirement of electricity, lightings and décor. Mr.Anupam and Mrs.Swananda, the couple who own the property were very approachable and accommodating. They helped us find different vendors and were also flexible with the check-in and check-out timings. The venue has additional cottages which can be rented for extra charges and this makes it convenient to accommodate family and friends, considering that it’s close to the Forest reserve area and there are not many options available nearby. The approach road to the place is littered with garbage and that leaves behind an unpleasant vision, but I must really appreciate the personal effort that the owners themselves put in to get the area cleaned although it’s completely out of their purview. Couple of suggestions to the owners: Please look at feasibility of provision for drinking water in the area meant for accommodation and a small pantry for basic needs of people staying over. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and I wish I had more time at The Peacock Grove to capture all the memorable moments..
