15 Best Kept Secrets From The Deepika Padukone Ranveer Singh Wedding
15 Best Kept Secrets From The Deepika Padukone Ranveer Singh Wedding
22 nd Nov 2018

Bollywood’s most awaited wedding is finally underway and it’s no surprise that fans can’t wait to get a glimpse of their favourite couple in their wedding finery. However it seems that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are determined to teach everyone the virtue of patience because not one picture of the couple has still emerged.

DeepVeer as they’re affectionately coined in the media have taken a page out of the Virushka (Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma) wedding book and have decided to maintain the utmost privacy around their nuptials.

Friends and family have strictly been instructed not to post any pictures of themselves or the couple on their social media. So much so that the wedding singer Harshdeep Kaur was asked to delete the picture she posted to her own social media account because it gave away a glimpse of the wedding venue. Some might consider that a bit excessive but nothing is too major for the reigning king and queen of Bollywood who want to reveal everything to their admirers on their own terms and with their own timeline.

Naturally the more they make an entire nation wait, the more anxiety builds up towards the final reveal of the coveted wedding pictures. The paparazzi have gone into overdrive trying to get even a small hint of the couples’ wedding looks but to no avail. There is speculation that the couple themselves will make some photos public very soon but until then here are a few juicy tid-bits of information that have made it down the grapevine.

  1. The Venue

A wedding of this scale with this level of confidentiality could only have been conducted outside India so DeepVeer again took some inspiration from Virushka and chose to tie the knot in Italy. Everything took place around the picturesque and romantic Lake Como. There was a lavish sangeet ceremony at Casta Diva a luxury resort in the pretty village of Blevio. Deepika and Ranveer were also residing at the property with their families. The wedding or weddings in this case took place at Villa Del Balbianello.

  1. The Weddings?

Yes, the plural version of the word wedding correctly describes the DeepVeer nuptials because there will indeed be two different weddings. Since both of them belong to different communities, they decided to pay homage to rituals from each of their cultures by having two different ceremonies. A Konkani Brahmin style wedding took place on 14th November at 7am while another Sindhi style wedding took place on 15th November.

  1. The Décor

The venue Villa Del Balbianello was a vision in white for the first Konkani style wedding on 14th November. The same setting was then totally overhauled for the Sindhi style wedding the next day, with all the décor changing to red. Florists have been specially flown in from Italy to decorate the venue and we’re sure the final result it nothing short of breath-taking.

  1. The Designer

Obviously the question of WHO will dress the couple has been on every Indian fashionista’s mind ever since the duo announced their wedding dates. It’s none other than maestro of all things ethnic Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Many agree the choice was a no brainer considering Deepika has been the designer’s muse multiple times. She reportedly wore a gold and white saree for the Kokani wedding and a red embroidered lehenga for the Sindhi wedding. Ranveer is said to have worn a delicately embroidered kanjeervaram sherwani. We can’t wait to feast out eyes on these outfits!

  1. The Receptions

Again, this too is plural because the couple hail from different cities in India. The Leela Palace Hotel has been booked on November 21st for a grand reception in Deepika’s hometown of Bengaluru. Following which the couple will have an extravagant celebration with the Bollywood fraternity in Mumbai on November 28th at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.

  1. The Pre-Wedding Festivities

It wouldn’t be an Indian wedding without the mandatory song and dance routine and the henna ceremony. A combined Mehendi and Sangeet ceremony was held prior to the weddings on 13th November. It was a fun filled and eclectic bash with lots of dancing to Bollywood numbers, a traditional Phool Muddi ceremony to welcome the groom and lastly a ring exchange between the couple.

  1. The Proposal

It might not be a proposal in the strictest sense but Ranveer went down on one knee at the sangeet to serenade his lady love with a song and asked for her hand in marriage before exchange rings.

  1. The Guestlist

While the guest list at both receptions is likely to be extensive just like any big fat Indian wedding that is certainly not the case for the events in Italy. Reportedly only 30-40 guests have been invited to the prestigious weddings and other functions in Lake Como. The limited guest list has been kept decidedly intimate and close especially considering how the couple don’t want any details slipping out until they’re ready to announce the news themselves.

  1. The Privacy

Quite a lot has been written already about the level of security and concealment DeepVeer want at their wedding but some of these requests can only be expected from Bollywood’s top couple. Guests and staff were made to cover their camera phone lenses with stickers to prevent any pictures being taken. The boat authorities in the small Italian area have been instructed not to rent out boats to anyone who isn’t a resident. And if that isn’t enough, special security boats have been patrolling around the venue to keep any over eager paparazzi at bay.

  1. The Wedding Video

DeepVeer plan to release a snapshot of their wedding video to fans very soon through their own social media accounts. Esteemed videographers The Wedding Filmer who also did the Virushka wedding have been roped in to shoot the stunning nuptials.

  1. The Food

There was a bountiful spread throughout the festivities with the best of the best catering each event. Renowned Indian chefs rustled up some authentic ethnic fare in addition to other cuisines while expert Swiss bakers served up delectable desserts.

  1. The Last Minute Switch

Unverified reports claim that due to the possibility of rain there was a possibility of switching the wedding venue to Casta Diva from Villa Del Balbianello. Whether that’s true or not, we’ll only find out when the pictures finally emerge.

  1. Ranveer Arrived By Seaplane

It’s no secret that Ranveer Singh is as flamboyant as they come so we wouldn’t put this one past him. Rumours suggest that the charismatic actor might have made a grand entry to his wedding on a seaplane while the other guests would arrive by luxury yachts.

  1. The Humanitarian Angle

Most high profile couples often forget about those less fortunate amongst the glitz and glamour of their weddings but DeepVeer are refreshingly different. The couple have requested all guests at the Mumbai reception not bring them any gifts but to make a donation to Deepika’s non-profit organisation instead. The Live Love Laugh Foundation aims to create awareness about mental illnesses while also educating people to reduce the stigma around them. A truly noble gesture especially since both Deepika and Ranveer have openly spoken about their battle with depression and their struggle to overcome the condition.

  1. The Pictures!

Don’t be mad…..we haven’t been stringing you along just to reveal the pictures you’re dying to see right at the end. There are no pictures of the couple yet or even of any part of the ceremonies. But here are a few shots of the guests and bits of the venue to keep you entertained while waiting for the real thing.
