And finally their official pictures are here! Ranveer and Deepika have taken to their social media handles to release the official wedding pictures from both the weddings i.e. Sindhi and Konkani style and captioned it with a heart. They both look stunning and right out from a fairy-tale!

Sharing the above pictures, Nitasha captioned them as, "Presenting the newly minted Mrs & Mr Ranveer Singh Bhavnani." And then, she also shared the pic on her Instagram stories and wrote, "Ye Dewani to Bhavnani ho gayi" atop it. Wow! That's such a cute revelation, right? To know the first words spoken by a father-in-law to his bahu?
Earlier, the pre-wedding functions started on October 13, 2018, with a rocking mehendi and sangeet ceremony took place earlier. In fact, there was a moment when Deepika broke down and got emotional, and Ranveer hugged her and made her smile again. This is what happened, “Shubha Mudgal was performing a thumri when Deepika Padukone got emotional and was in tears. When she broke down, Ranveer, who could understand her emotional state, walked up to her and hugged her tight and consoled his lady love. He ensured she was smiling again with all his crazy love antics.”
Earlier, the mehendi and sangeet ceremonies were heavily fun-filled. As per a report, “The ambience at the event was electric. Ranveer Singh has enjoyed the most at the Mehendi ceremony. He danced his heart out while his lady love was busy getting the Mehendi done. Old songs were being played. First Shubha Mudgal performed, followed by Harshdeep Kaur. Romantic songs, ghazals and sufi songs were performed. Followed by a performance by Ranveer. He also danced on the beats of dhol.”
Deepika and Ranveer’s wedding was a two-day affair owing to their different origins and cultures. A report suggested earlier, “Since Deepika is a South Indian and Ranveer is of Sindhi-Punjabi origin, the two families decided to follow customs practised by both communities. A South Indian wedding has been planned for November 14, complete with Kannadiga rituals. The next day will see the couple solemnise their relationship as per the customs of a North Indian wedding.”
One of the most unique thing about DeeVeer's wedding was that their gifts that they received. Deepika and Ranveer have asked their wedding guests to donate the gifts to her NGO- The Live Love Laugh Foundation. Mid-Day quoted a source stating, “The bride and groom have requested the guests to not shower them with gifts. If they wish to give them anything, they've requested that donations be made to Deepika's foundation that actively works towards creating awareness and removing the stigma around depression. Both Ranveer and Deepika are deeply committed to the cause and want to involve all their guests in the good deed.”
