The much-anticipated wedding of Bollywood superstars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh finally took place on Wednesday, November 14 in Lake Como, Italy.
Padukone, 32, and Singh, 33, maintained a strict social media policy with their guests, but even so, tidbits from their wedding day still managed to make its way to the eyes and ears of eager fans. (One early slip-up, however, came from singer Harshdeep Kaur, who posted a photo of herself with her wedding date at the venue before hastily taking it down.)
In footage shot by The Associated Press, guests are seen arriving at the stunning wedding site by boat, with the ceremony itself held on a high balcony of the Villa del Balbianello, the gorgeous estate where the wedding was held.
According to News 18, the pair held a traditional Konkani ceremony there in the early morning, around 7 a.m., and A-list guests in attendance included Bollywood celebrities such as Karan Johar, Nimrat Kaur and Ronit Roy. A second wedding ceremony, reportedly as per North Indian rituals, will be held at a later date.
Other details from the day, including the fact that Singh reportedly got down on one knee to make an impassioned speech to his future wife, or that the couple has asked guests to donate to Padukone’s mental wellness foundation in lieu of wedding gifts, have also been circulating among rumor mills.
The pair have been dating for approximately six years, and have starred in three major Bollywood films together, though they have largely kept their personal lives under wraps. It wasn’t until earlier this year that they confirmed their relationship on social media.
