As DeepVeer tie the knot the Sindhi way, a look back at their ‘have it all’ Konkani wedding

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hile Deepika Padukone chose a peach sari, Ranveer wore a long cream coloured kurta for their Konkani wedding on Wednesday. To ensure they were not photographed at the wedding venue, they were surrounded by black umbrellas as they boarded the boat and headed to Casta Diva resort, where they are staying, from the wedding venue.
Today (November 15) the couple got married as per Sindhi traditions.

Man and wife

With the chant of ‘Har Har Mahadev’ and ‘Ab yeh vivah sampann hua’, at 1.05 PM Italian time on Wednesday, Ranveer and Deepika were declared man and wife at the beautiful Villa Del Balbianello overlooking Lake Como in northern Italy. According to a report in Mid-Day, singer Shubha Mudgal performed live as the actor walked down the aisle.
As per reports, the newlyweds will host two wedding receptions in Mumbai and one in Bengaluru. While the reception in Bengaluru will take place on November 21, the Mumbai events will take place on November 28 and December 1.
Deepveer’s wedding had it all — two love birds in a dream-like venue surrounded with loving family and friends. The glamour quotient was of course one of the highlights of the foreign destination, but what’s more filmy was a boat ride-chase by journalists in attempt to catch a glimpse of the celebrity couple.

No sight of Deepveer

As the first day of Deepika and Ranveer’s two-day wedding extravaganza in Lake Como came to an end, the newlyweds emerged from the confines of the villa accompanied by their closest family.

A vintage EURO 500,000 Riva Tritone luxury boat waited for the couple to take them to CastaDiva resort where they and their family and friends are staying. The captain of the vessel told the media that he would be taking the couple back to CastaDiva in ultimate Italian luxury and style.

Their entourage proceeded to cover up the couple in a number of black umbrellas as they boarded and settled into the boat.

The boat-chase

As they took off, the journalists’ boats began following the couple only to be repeatedly blocked by security boats that cut in front and attempted to tip the chasing boats over. In a separate boat, a number of photographers who had appeared with the couple began chasing the journalists’ boats and taking photographs.

It was a show of extraordinary security as small powerboats manned by beefy security guards sailed round and round the smaller boat filled with journalists in order to unsettle and potentially tip them over. It was not a pleasant feeling to be rocked by the waves created by the security boats said journalists present on the boat, said a ANI report.

Celebrities congratulate the newly-weds:

Shah Rukh Khan, who co-starred in Deepika’s debut film Om Shanti Om, is currently promoting his upcoming film Zero. His alter-ego Bauua (protagonist of Zero) tweeted his dismay as Deepika got hitched to her boyfriend of six years, Ranveer.

The celebrity couple made it very clear that they do not want gifts from guests, rather they suggested them to make donations to Deepika’s charity, The Live Love Laugh Foundation, that works toward spreading awareness about mental health.

Filmmaker Farah Khan, however, prepared a special present for the newlyweds – personalised hand impressions made by artist Bhavna Jasra.
