Firstly we had the awful task of locating a venue without the opportunity to see it first hand as we both were out of the country for almost a year before our wedding. Making everything much harder than it already was. After looking at dozens of venues online up and down in the outskirts of Chennai, we came across this venue on google and then checked out their Instagram page too! The pictures looked incredible, such a beautiful venue.
We both fell in love with the look and feel of the venue over pictures alone, but not being too naive we also wanted to have some sort of look around the place. This is where the banquet team at Kalyan Grand came in, we contacted them and they were so lovely. They made arrangements for us to have an online Skype viewing where they took us around the venue and explained the different areas. They took us through a general run through of what most couples do on their day but let us know they were very open to any creative ideas we had to make things a little different for our day. They really put our minds at rest and we knew even though we hadn’t seen the venue it was definitely the right place for us.
We obviously had so many questions and requests through not being able to be there physically, but they were there to quickly respond to all our emails and give helpful friendly advice for everything.
When we actually got to see the venue (the day before the wedding!) we were absolutely happy. They have Suites which are beautiful for the bride to get ready with her bridesmaids and for the couple to stay the night of their wedding.
People often ask us, what was the best part about our wedding day, for both of us the best part about the day was that we didn’t worry about anything. The hotel banquet team work very closely with the vendors they recommend and for good reason. Their operation is smooth and slick, the co-ordination they have with their staff and vendors is amazing and we have both worked in the hospitality industry for years. It was an incredible feeling to know that we could relax and enjoy our day knowing everything was going smoothly and our guests were all enjoying themselves.
If we had any advice to couples looking to plan their wedding. I think we would both advice that preparation goes such a long way. Always listen to the advice the venue has to offer, they will know best! They’ve seen many weddings so they know what will work and what may not come off as well as you’re thinking. Ever After gave us so many recommendations and we’re so glad we took them!
We highly recommend Kalan Grand all the staff! From the start they worked with us to accommodate our unconventional circumstances. Everything felt so personal and dedicated to us, devoted to making our day as incredible as it could be. They worked with us to create something that fit into our budget, giving us multiple options and never pressured into something we felt uncomfortable with.
From the moment we first made contact with Kalyan Grand, through to leaving the day after our wedding everything was a joy. The venue is stunning and so incredibly peaceful! We truly experienced a fairy-tale wedding at Ever After!
Thank you team Kalyan Grand, you made our day the most special day of our lives.”
