A public announcement, two weddings and a long tease later, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh released the first pictures as a married couple on Thursday.
The two-part wedding, one of the most awaited events in Bollywood calendar, was an intensely private and synchronised affair at scenic Lake Como's Villa del Balbianello, where the couple honoured their South Indian and North Indian origins.
Both Deepika and Ranveer shared the photographs simultaneously on their respective social media accounts.
In the South Indian style wedding, Ranveer can be seen wearing a cream-white kurta-dhoti, while Deepika looked gorgeous in what appears to be a maroon Kanjeevaram sari. The couple is seen sharing a hearty laugh in the picture.
In the second wedding Thursday, the couple twinned in red and gold outfits. Deepika's dupatta has the blessing 'Sada Saubhagyavati bhavah' inscribed in golden letters. This picture has the couple engaged in a deep conversation.
Deepika's favourite couturier Sabyasachi designed the outfits for both the couple. The bride, for once, managed to force Ranveer to mellow down from his quirky, flamboyant style.
Media, both national and international, was stationed outside the venue but could only manage a series of grainy images and videos, mostly of the guests and family members, doing little to quench the thirst of the stars' fans.
The delay in pictures had kept the fans and the media on tenterhooks as the only updates were available through the duo's publicists until Ranveer posted the pictures on the internet.
