Shivam Tyagi and Arya Nair, both civil servants, decided to have a low-key wedding in Kerala in the presence of family members and close friends and decided to use the money they would have spent for a lavish wedding to sponsor the education of 20 orphan children.
This noble gesture of the couple is going viral on social media and they are getting a lot of appreciation from all quarters.
Their marriage was held at a sub-registrar office in Pampady under the Special Marriages Act and the couple had a difficult time to convince their parents who finally agreed to their wish.
While Shivam Tyagi, a native of Delhi is posted as the superintendent of the Indian Postal Service in Ahmedabad, Arya is training for Indian Revenue Service in Nagpur. Both of them have rejoined work following the wedding.
