Ranveer and Deepika Tie the Knot in Extravagant Indian Wedding
Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone tied the knot in a traditional Indian style wedding on November 14th. The wedding was held at the Villa Balbienello in northern Italy, with multiple Bollywood celebrities attending.

  The newlyweds wanted to keep the nuptials private, not allowing any pictures to be taken by the guests. High-profile celebrities traveled to India for the occasion, such as Mana Shetty and Prakash Padukone, Deepika’s father.

  For the Konkani wedding—a north Indian style ceremony—the bride wore a red and gold sari with the groom wearing a traditional dhoti-kurta. They continued the wedding celebrations in their homeland, India, where the couple matched in silky gold at a reception in Bengaluru.

  The couple received a lot of praise for their attire with fans, like Dhriti Veeramacheni (10), commenting, “Deepika Padukone looked elegant in the sari and Ranveer’s clothes were iconic. Even though there were limited pictures, the clothes they wore really circulated the internet.”

  The couple celebrated their afterparty that Ranveer’s sister, Ritika Bhavnani, had organized for them in Mumbai at Grand Hyatt. Deepika wore a Sabyasachi designed Dil Guldasta Lehenga, which was made with intricate embroidery. The dress had peacocks trimmed at the bottom and Sabyasachi added a Sada Saubhagyavati Raho dupatta to complete the attire. Ranveer joined in a colorful suit made by Manish Arora.

  Ranveer entered with Deepika on stage, proudly saying, “I married the most beautiful girl in the world… We are here to celebrate what will be an epic future.”

  The party continued with a DJ, drinks, and a dance floor for the last celebration. Followers of the couple took to social media to congratulate them.

  Ansh Kumar (10) has been a follower of Bollywood couples and commented, “The wedding seemed really nice from pictures on Instagram. I am sure they will have a successful marriage as well.”

  The couple is planning to skip the honeymoon due to Ranveer’s schedule being packed with the upcoming promotion of his new blockbuster Simmba. Nevertheless, the couple is starting off the new chapter of their lives by buying a home and settling down near Ranveer’s family in Mumbai.
