Actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have tied the knot in a dreamy Lake Como setting in Italy amidst a tight circle of family and friends, reported Pinkvilla. The duo got married in a traditional Kokani ceremony.
The couple exchanged rings on Monday evening, and a more desi touch to the celebrations came in with the mehendi function on Tuesday afternoon, followed by a music-filled sangeet the same evening.
The actors, adored for their on-screen chemistry in movies like Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela and Bajirao Mastani, as much as for their off-screen chemistry, left for the wedding revelry to Italy last week.
According to IANS, there are only about 40 guests for the celebrations, and fans of the couple on social media have been pinning to get a glimpse of the pre-wedding galas.
But due to strict security instructions, there are sadly no pictures yet since because mobile phones are not allowed outside people's rooms. They are in Northern Italy's Lombardy region, an upscale resort area known for its spectacular scenery.
For the mehendi, Deepika wore a Sabyasachi Mukherjee creation and the couple was colour co-ordinated.
The wedding spans two days of ceremonies. On Wednesday, they will marry according to Konkani customs, while on the following day, they will have a traditional Anand Karaj ceremony.
Deepika, daughter of badminton ace Prakash Padukone, is likely to wear a Sabyasachi ensemble for the Anand Karaj.
Poles apart from each other in personality, Deepika and Ranveer's love story began on the sets of Ram-Leela. Their off-screen camaraderie gave enough hints to their fans, the media and the film fraternity that love was brewing.
But they never confirmed their relationship until recently. They put to rest months of speculation about their nuptials with a social media announcement in October of their wedding dates.
"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.
