Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh’s wedding: A perfect blend of North and South at DeepVeer’s nuptials
Bollywood’s ‘it’ couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh solemnised their relationship amidst much fanfare at The CastaDiva Resort and Spa overlooking Lake Como in Italy.
THE NORTH-INDIAN WEDDING
RANVEER DANCED ALL ALONG
For the Anand Karaj yesterday morning, the Padukones reached the venue early to welcome the groom and baaraatis. True to a North Indian-style wedding, the ceremony was a lot of fun. Ranveer and his baaraatis arrived dancing to dhol and music.
The ladkewaale made a dashing entry, grooving to Anil Kapoor and Govinda’s chartbuster tracks. Ranveer was in his element, jiving to Meri Pant Bhi Sexy, Tamma Tamma and My Name Is Lakhan playing out loud in the background.
MATCHING OUTFITS FOR THE BRIDE AND GROOM
The lovebirds complemented each other and wore shades of the same colour. While DP picked a beautiful red Sabyasachi outfit for the occasion, hubby Ranveer matched her dress sporting a pinkish red Indian ensemble by the same designer. The two families were also dressed in shades of red and pink. The ladkewaale sported pink turbans. The Padmaavat actor’s friend and photographer Rohan Shrestha along with director Nitya Mehra (of Baar Baar Dekho fame) were among the 40 guests that were present at the occasion.
THE SINDHI PLATTER
The Bhavnanis planned a lavish buffet for the guests at the ceremony. The menu included popular Sindhi delicacies like dal pakwan, sindhi kadhi-chawal, sev barfi and others.
THE SOUTH-INDIAN WEDDING
KEEPING IT CLASSY
For the traditional Konkani-style wedding on November 14, which started at 8 am and concluded at 2 pm, Ranveer’s family wore white-and-ivory outfits while the groom was dressed in a mundu (a traditional outfit) in the same shades. Meanwhile, Dippy’s side sported the traditional red-and-gold combination. The actress looked resplendent in an ethnic red, white and gold sari.
As per tradition, the bride had to walk from her villa to the mandap where the rituals were being performed. “While Deepika was doing so, songstress Shubha Mudgal delivered a live performance. DP looked like a vision in her bridal attire and Shubha’s booming voice lent a surreal feel to the proceedings,” says our source.
COLOUR CODES FOR THE GUESTS
Reportedly, the couple gave their guests different colour codes for all the ceremonies. While the actress is known for her drop-dead gorgeous looks, the guests were heard saying that they hadn’t seen a more beautiful bride than Deepika. “Even though the atmosphere was of complete joy and happiness all around, there were several moments when Deepika got emotional,” adds our source.
