Deepika and Ranveer wedding
Two of Bollywood’s biggest stars Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have finally tied the knot after 6 years of courting each other. We are dying to see the pictures of the married couple or even know slightest detail about the celebrations taking place in Villa del Balvianello at Lake Como, Italy. The wedding took place in Konkani style on the 14th of November.
The wedding festivities are taking place at the villa that sits right at the end of a peninsula and offers some stunning views of Lake Como.
People have been keeping a sharp eye out for pictures that may be shared by careless guests on their social media accounts – the couple had reportedly banned guests from posting anything about their wedding. They have also been told to tape their camera lenses on their phones. Tight security measures included drone interceptors in the sky and guests being made to wear special wrist bands and scan unique QR codes on their phones to gain entry. Pictures have been hard to come by.
The never-ending wait for Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding photos have been best summed up by Smriti Irani.
Though we may not know much , we have got know some details from the mehendi and wedding ceremony that took place on the 13th and 14th November respectively.
A source who attended the mehendi ceremony reveals, “Songs of Ranveer and Deepika like Laal Ishq, Lahu Muh Lag Gaya and more were played on the guitar during the mehendi ceremony. Ranveer and Deepika who were extremely happy, slow danced to these songs.” While we didn’t get a glimpse of the mehendi, we can surely picture this amazing couple dance to the tunes of their songs.
Another source reveals that Ranveer went down on one knee asking Deepika to marry him and gave impassioned speech to his beloved. It was also revealed that Deepika was very emotional during the whole mehendi ceremony and teared up during Ranveer’s speech.
Singer Harshdeep Kaur, who reportedly performed at the sangeet ceremony Tuesday, had to take down a picture from social media, that showed her and her husband standing near the picturesque lake. But the screenshot of the now deleted photo is already viral on social media.
