By  | 

We at weddingsOnlineIndia love fusion weddings. Naturally, we were delighted to receive this beautiful temple-church Indian wedding sent in by Arvind Shenoy.

Read the delightful story behind Nishita and Rahul’s orange-white themed temple wedding followed by an elegant Church wedding in St. Patrick’s Church, Bangalore.

Bride & Groom: Nishita Tambakad and Rahul Fernandes- both lawyers working in Mangalore.

Their story: Nishita has travelled extensively for education and work. When in Mangalore, she made a lot of friends, Rahul being one of them. Nishita believes that happiness is a choice and she chooses to surround herself with the people and things that make her the happiest in life. She loves animals and has two little pugs, June and Caesar. Rahul , contrary to his legal background, is a ‘fun loving dude’ who loves playing and watching cricket.

Engagement date and venue: 23rd February, 2013  Jungle Lodges & Resorts, Dubare, Coorg

Temple wedding: The temple wedding took place on the 20th October, 2013 at the  Bhoganandishwara Temple, Nandi Hills, Bangalore. The couple chose this 1000 year old Shiva-Parvati  temple because of the fact that it was a perfect weekend getaway for their guests amidst the beautiful backdrop of pristine hills and forests, including the historic fort built by Tipu Sultan. Additionally, they thought this a romantic place to tie the knot in, since the temple itself is highly symbolic of the union between Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati as  depicted by their many wedding scenes on the Uma-Maheshwara temple.
