Lake Como in Italy was dancing to Indian music tunes this past week as Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh had their big fat Italian wedding. The wedding was attended by their closest friends and families and the photos reveal it was a time of fun, love and laughs.
The two stars, reportedly started dating on the sets of the 2013 Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Ram-Leela but have always been very tight-lipped about their relationship. Nicknamed Deepveer by their adoring fans, the two had a fun lavish wedding with traditional ceremonies like mehendi and sangeet.
Sabyasachi Mukherjee, who designed the various wedding looks for both bride and groom was also in Italy for the wedding. He shared an Instagram story of the couple from their Chooda ceremony where Ranveer could be seen wearing a silk, bottle green kurta churidaar, jacket with embroidery and white sneakers. Deepika wore an intricately embroidered kurta pyjama and paired it with a mojari.
The happy couple opted for two traditional wedding ceremonies, one with Konkani and other with Punjabi rituals. For her Konkani wedding, Deepika wore an gold and orange silk saree, traditional maatha patti, a tiny bindi, heavy traditional jewellery and a colour coordinated dupatta. Ranveer complemented her in white kurta and dhoti. For the punjabi ceremony, the couple went with red as colour scheme. Ranveer wore a red-sherwani and a leheriya safa while Deepika opted for an embroidered lehenga. Her intricately embroidered dupatta had the words ‘sada saubhagyawati bhava’ woven on it.
The guests were given an exclusive photo frame, and a personalised ‘Thank You’ note at the wedding. Both are expected to make their first appearance as a married couple in a few days at their Bengaluru and Mumbai wedding receptions.
