If you don't know that Bollywood's biggest stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh got married last night then probably you are living under a rock. After dating for six long years, their love story finally turned into a fairytale because their wedding was LIT AF! The lavish wedding ceremonies were organised in an Italian resort overlooking the gorgeous Lake Como.
On Thursday, the newlyweds took the time out and shared pictures from the wedding on their respective social media accounts. While the November 14 wedding was done in Konkani style, the November 15 ceremony followed the North Indian tradition.
Apparently the couple fell in love on the sets of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali blockbuster Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela in 2013 and they announced their wedding dates on Twitter. The wedding card read, “With the blessings of our families, it gives us immense joy in sharing that our wedding is set to take place on the 14th and 15th November 2018. 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.”
So without further ado, let's have a look at their beautiful journey.
Dressed in a beautiful saffrom suit by Sabysachi, Deepika looked beautiful as she smiled and posed with her near and dear ones during the puja.
Soon, Ranveer Singh was spotted dancing in his Mumbai residence with haldi on his face and hands.

Flying to Italy
Just a few days later, Deepika and Ranveer were spotted in all-white avatar at the Mumbai airport heading for their destination wedding in Italy. The wedding was held at Villa del Balbianello at Lake Como, Italy.
The Big Wedding!
If you've missed any update from the big day then don't worry. The wedding was a close-knit family affair with only 40 guests in attendance. The guests weren’t allowed to take photos and the festivities were performed under strict vigilance with three levels of security. Also, each guest was received personally by the couples with handwritten notes. In Italy, celebrations kicked off with an engagement ceremony and according to reports, Ranveer went down on one knee to ask for Deepika’s hand in marriage. Following this, the actor made an emotional speech which moved Deepika to tears. The two then matched steps, dressed in black and white.
The engagement ceremony was followed by the mehendi ritual, where the couple donned beautiful creations by ace designer Sabyasachi. inger Harshdeep Kaur performed at Deepika and Ranveer’s sangeet. According to a report by IANS, the guests were told not to bring any gifts and to donate to their hearts’ desire to Deepika’s The Live Love Laugh foundation.
According to other reports, the Konkani wedding went on for four hours. South Indian chefs were flown in for the big day and the food was later served on banana leaves. Basically, the whole thing was a sweet and intimate affair, with close friends and family in attendance.
The wedding is done and now it's time to celebrate with the entire world, which is why, the couple will be hosting two wedding receptions. The first wedding reception will be held in Bengaluru on November 21. The reception will be held in The Leela Palace from 5 pm onwards. The second reception will be held in Mumbai on November 28. The celebration will begin in The Grand Hyatt.
Here's wishing the beautiful couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, a lifetime of happiness and togetherness!
