These stunning pictures of Lake Como Deepika-Ranveer wedding destination prove it’s as perfect as the couple itself – Bollywood’s beloved couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are getting hitched tomorrow and we can hardly contain our excitement! The nuptials are taking place on 14th and 15th November at the most picturesque location of Lake Como, Italy. It looks like Italy has become the most favourite spot to walk down the aisle for Bollywood celebs. Last year, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli had tied the knot secretly in Tuscany in Italy away from the glare of the paparazzi. Now, Bollywood’s Bajirao and Mastani are all set to seal their relationship in Villa del Balbianello, which is close to Lake Como.
Set in the shadow of the snow-covered Rhaetian Alps and hemmed in on both sides by steep wooded hills, Lake Como (aka Lake Lario) is the most spectacular of the region’s three major lakes. Shaped like an upside-down Y (or an armless wanderer), its winding shoreline is dotted with ancient villages and exquisite villas. The couple will take vows at the Villa del Balbianello originally built in the 18th century for a powerful cardinal, Angelo Maria Durini. The stunning corner of Europe has attracted everyone from showbiz like David Bowie and George Clooney. Even the most famous Bond movie Casino Royale was shot here! The dreamy mansion is just perfect for weddings.
The wedding celebrations kick-started at Deepika Padukone’s Bengaluru home with a Nandi Puja with close friends and family. Ranveer’s family functions begun with Haldi, after which the couple flew to Italy. The duo is said to have two wedding ceremonies one according to South Indian rituals on 14th November and one according to Sindhi traditions on 15th November. There’s likely to be a Sangeet ceremony to be held on 13th November after which the couple will host full-fledged reception in Bengaluru and in Mumbai.
