The wedding day is undeniably one of the most significant days in a person’s life, and so is the journey leading up to it. This journey must be captured and cherished, wouldn’t you agree? Sometimes, all you need is simply, gorgeous, tucked-away locations and a sprinkle of magic with the camera. Some of those are exotic locales like Jim Corbett National Park or maybe the sands of Rajasthan. But often even in a concrete jungle like Bangalore, there are small islands of charming secret beauty. Here are some of the best pre-wedding photoshoot locations in Bangalore.
