Ranveer, Deepika get married in Italy
After their very private wedding ceremonies, the couple will have a reception each in Bengaluru and Mumbai on November 21 and 28, respectively
Padukone on November 14 tied the knot as per Konkani traditions in a dreamy Lake Como setting in Italy amidst a tight circle of family and friends, culminating a six year-long love story in a 'happily ever after'. The ceremony began at 8 a m, and ended around 1:30 p m as per local time in Italy, those in the know of developments said.
Deepika wore a red and gold lehenga, and Ranveer was dressed in white, with most guests dressed in pastels, keeping with the subtle and classy vibe of the upscale wedding venue. Northern Italy's Lombardy region, a resort area known for its spectacular scenery, served as the perfect backdrop for Deepika and Ranveer's wedding. While fans and the media yearned for pictures from the wedding celebrations on social media, only a few wide angle shots of the venue gave a hint of the elaborate set-up, decorated with the choicest of flowers. The Konkani style wedding was followed by a traditional Anand Karaj ceremony on Thursday.
Deepika, 32, daughter of badminton ace Prakash Padukone wore a Sabyasachi ensemble for the Anand Karaj. Fondly called as DeepVeer by their fans, the star couple have together worked in films such as Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat.
They exchanged rings recently, and a more 'desi' touch to the celebrations came in with the 'mehendi' function later, followed by a music-filled 'sangeet' the same evening. For the mehendi, Deepika wore a Sabyasachi Mukherjee creation and the couple was colour co-ordinated. Singer Harshdeep Kaur, along with Sanjoy Das, Bobby Pathak and Firoz Khan performed at the ceremony.
"We thank you for all the love you have showered upon us over the years and seek your blessings as we embark on this incredible journey of love, loyalty friendship and togetherness," they said in the announcement. After their very private wedding ceremonies, the couple will have a reception each in Bengaluru and Mumbai on November 21 and 28, respectively.They have urged their guests to direct gifts in the form of a donation to Deepika's The Live Love Laugh Foundation, which works towards spreading awareness on mental health.
