Indian weddings are lavish affairs and the celebrations can last for nearly a month, making the newlyweds desperately seeking a vacation. Perhaps, that’s why honeymoons came into existence. However, today’s career-driven generation, especially in Bangalore, hardly gets enough leaves to accommodate both wedding and a long relaxing honeymoon. Often they need to compromise on the later to get back to their busy schedule.
If you are also one of the busy couples who cannot go for a long vacation in a faraway location due to time constraint, we suggest you to explore the following beautiful places near Bangalore. These localities will not only charm you with their unadulterated exoticness but also will offer a perfect backdrop for some breathtaking photos, which can enhance your Wedding Photography album by several notches.
