Many more tourists may choose to get married in Goa in the future.

With its religious heritage and beautiful beaches Goa makes for an ideal place to hold a wedding.

Now, authorities are looking at removing some of the boundaries that are currently preventing tourists from holding their marriage ceremony in the state.

Speaking at the founding day of the Travel and Tourism Association of Goa, president Francis Braganza told IANS that wedding tourism in Goa can only really take off when the marriage registration laws have been changed.

The Goa Tourism Development Corp (GTDC) states that for Rps 4 lakh (£4,500) tourists can have a very lavish ceremony under the India sun. The great package would include and an all-inclusive cocktail party, the traditional wedding lunch and an after ceremony dinner. Not only this, but the price also includes wedding transport and accommodation in Goa.

“Wedding tourism is a new and upcoming segment. The potential is huge, so is the challenge. Smaller groups of 70-100 people make the event more exclusive,” GTDC general manager LC Kavlekar said
