One of the places where Richa and Ali Fazal’s pre-wedding celebrations will take place is an exclusive club in Delhi, in fact it is one of the oldest clubs in India. Founded in 1913, the club is one of the national capital’s most sought-after venues: the Delhi Gymkhana Club. Ali and Richa will be holding one of their pre-wedding ceremonies at the historic site.
Delhi Gymkhana Club reportedly moved to its current location on July 3, 1913. It was then called the Imperial Delhi Gymkhana. In 1947, when India gained independence, the word ‘Imperial’ was dropped and it was simply known as Delhi Gymkhana Club or simply Gymkhana club. According to the club’s official website, the history of the origin of the Delhi Gymkhana Club is not well documented and it was not until after 1927 that the history of the club was recorded.
The architecture of the Delhi Gymkhana Club has both colonial and modern features and is an ideal location for those who have long envisioned a fairytale wedding. The interiors, with their soaring ceilings, dazzling lamps and chandeliers, and picturesque gardens and lawns, are great for both indoor and outdoor parties. The place has private rooms, huge banquet hall, library, ballroom, indoor pool and billiard tables and much more.
According to a report in ETimes, Richa and Ali’s pre-wedding celebrations will begin in late September and last until October 2 in Delhi, the wedding will take place on October 6 and the reception on October 7 in Mumbai.
