This couple always kept their mum whenever paparazzi asked them if they were dating. Perhaps, they did it only to drop it as a big surprise to all fans by announcing their marriage on social media on October 21, 2018. The world went in for a momentary frenzy when two Instagram messages (one from Deepika and the other from Ranveer) popped-up on their Instagram feed.
Have you forgotten the golden words that were written on their official statement? The same could be read as, “With the blessings of our families, it gives us immense joy in sharing that our wedding is set to take place on the 14th and 15th of November 2018. 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. Lots of love, Deepika and Ranveer.”
And today (November 28, 2018), the couple was seen all decked-up in an ivory and gold avatar and needless to say, DeepVeer looked as if they walked straight out of heaven! Donning herself in designer duo Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla outfits, the designer duo captioned Deepika and Ranveer’s Mumbai reception picture as, “ETHEREAL ROMANCE @deepikapadukone is an absolute dream in this gorgeous Ivory and Gold Chikankari ensemble. Jewellery by @sabooatajsk.” Here’s a picture:
As soon as Deepika and Ranveer appeared in front of the paparazzi, shutterbugs immediately started grabbing most of this wonderful sight. Both Ranveer and Deepika, who seem to have a very good rapport with the media were suddenly seen breaking into jitters of laughter. Why? All the cameramen stationed outside DeepVeer’s wedding venue, started calling Deepika ‘Bhabhiji’ as soon as they spot her! This made the beautiful couple almost go all ‘rolling on the floor laughing’! Here’s the video:
Looks like Deepika and Ranveer are indeed giving their fans some serious wedding goals, aren’t they? Post their return from their Italy wedding, DeepVeer (as their fans fondly call them) had a reception in Deepika’s hometown in Bangalore. Prior to their wedding, a source had revealed intricate details about the couple’s Bangalore reception and was quoted as saying, “The biggest reason why Deepika chose to have the reception at the Leela, Bangalore was renowned Italian restaurant of New York, Le Cirque which goes by the name Le Cirque Signature. DP loves the restaurant in NYC and their franchise in Bengaluru drew Deepika to The Leela. Her mother has also gone food tasting 2-3 times. The food will be pre-dominantly South Indian though. They will check into the hotel on 20th and check out on 22nd." Here is a picture from their Bangalore reception:
On November 24, 2018, Ranveer’s sister, Ritika Bhavnani hosted another wedding reception for the newly-weds. Ranveer, who always looks like he is in complete ‘awww’ of Deepika, left no stone unturned to make Deepika blush. Welcoming all guests, the Simbaa actor was heard saying, “Guys, we are really, really happy to all of you together here tonight. It's going to be an epic, epic night because there's so many of you. All our lovers and friends under one roof. The dance looks too empty to me. We are here to celebrate for the epic future to you and me."
The couple will host another star-studded wedding reception in Mumbai for their industry friends on December 01, 2018 and that will surely be the one to watch out for! For all the uninitiated Deepika Padukone fans, the gorgeous Chennai Express star is very fond of water lilies. Hence, as per an India Today report, 12 florists from Florence had flown off to Italy to decorate the wedding venue! No wonder we got such amazing pictures of the backdrop!
In an interview with Rajdeep Sardesai on India Today India Tomorrow, Deepika, at length had spoken about her wedding and shared, “I'm excited in the same way as I'm excited about signing my next film. Marriage is something that I've always looked forward to in my life, as would any other girl." Further speaking about her inspiration towards a happy marriage, the Happy New Year star stated, “I've seen my parents do it so well and so successfully and I think for me, that's the way I would like my married life to be as well. My parents have a beautiful relationship. The way they have managed their professional life as well as being together as a family. They have set such amazing benchmarks that both I and my sister (Anisha Padukone) would like to follow."
Remember how Ranveer had said sometime back in an interview that he will be shouting from the rooftops if there were any wedding announcements in the future? Well, with some energy like his, we can totally imagine Ranveer doing that and he surely did! This is what he had said in the interview sometime back when fans were speculating a marriage soon, “It is the function of speculation – to exist. Nothing is official till it is made official and I am not a seer. I cannot say this will happen on this date in the future. Right now, we are both extremely busy working. Besides, she is also recuperating from back problems. So, we are quite occupied and distracted. So, if there is any announcement in the future, you will be hearing me shouting from the rooftops”.
And we totally heard Ranveer shouting from ‘stage tops’, didn’t we? (*wink wink*)
