Bollywood Bride Deepika Padukone
Bollywood bride, Deepika Padukone married Ranveer Singh in November 2018 in the beautiful setting of Lake Como. We witnessed a string of events and celebrations allowing for a showcase of Indian fashion at its finest.
Pre-wedding celebrations and outfits
The wedding festivities began with a Puja ceremony. As Deepika’s favourite Indian fashion designer, Sabyasachi Mukherjee was responsible for the vibrant orange suit she wore. Although the design was simplistic, it was brought to life with the oversized ear-rings from Shaleena Nathani.

A very traditional Indian mehendi in Como. From the clothes to the divine music to the absolutely spectacular food! Some things are meant to be and hence the sun came out shining in all its glory, after two days of rain. @deepikapadukone @ranveersingh Photo Courtesy: @errikosandreouphoto #Sabyasachi #BridesOfSabyasachi #SabyasachiBride #GroomsOfSabyasachi #SabyasachiGroom #DeepVeer #DeepVeerKiShaadi #DeepVeerWedding #DeepikaPadukone #RanveerSingh #DreamWedding #DestinationWedding #LakeComo #TheWeddingDesignCompany @theweddingdesigncompany #TheWorldOfSabyasachi @bridesofsabyasachi @groomsofsabyasachi
At the Mehendi ceremony the bride looked radiant in a luxurious fusion outfit. The blushed-pink bridal lehenga, again a Sabyasachi piece, was positively striking in its Italian setting. The thread-work involved was intricate and was offset with the bright red shawl as well as the matching dupatta.
The Konkani wedding
At the Konkani wedding, the bride wore an outfit gifted to her by her mother, Ujjala Padukone. The minimalistic, but beautiful red and golden silk saree came from Angadi Galleria. She paired the outfit with a statement matha patti and choker, which complimented the traditional feel to the outfit.
Traditional bridal lehenga
The luscious red bridal lehenga was both traditional and timeless. Deepika Padukone kept the classic style but also customised it by having a personalised dupatta. The embroidery on this read ‘Sada Saubhagyawati Bhava’ which translates to mean ‘stay happily married forever’.

The wedding reception
Leaving Lake Como and back in Bangalore, the newlyweds held a lavish first reception party. The gold saree was breathtakingly opulent, gifted to Deepika Padukone by her mother once more, this time from the House of Angadi. As would be expected of Deepika and her renowned sense of style and colour, she added a splash of contrast with a striking emerald choker combined with a pearl haar.
Moving away from the more traditional looks, the bride diverged to something quite different for the post-wedding celebration party. Sabyasachi created an intense and memorable floral red lehenga.
At the ‘after’ party she diverged from traditional Indian fashion even further, wearing a velvet jacket and pantsuit, still with increasingly bold make-up.
And another two receptions
The next wedding reception saw Deepika in a traditional ivory, gold and champagne look, inspired by Pakistani wedding fashion. The long veil looked resplendent combined with chikankari details. This time it was Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla who designed the heavily embroidered saree and long dupatta.
Once again breaking with tradition, the Deepika Padukone Bollywood reception had tones of Moulin Rouge with hot reds and tuxes for the men. The Zuhair Murad gown was an intense red which balanced a side slit and a long trail. Once again we saw smoky and heavy eye make-up. Clearly the outfit here was picked not just for looks but dancing practicalities! It wasn’t long before Deepika opted to don some trainers for the dance floor
Bridal lehengas and wedding inspiration

The Deepika Padukone wedding may have been held in secret, without so much as a mobile phone snap from guests allowed, but once we saw the images we were really treated to a catwalk of style. Indeed, once Sabyasachi started revealing images of their designs on social media, we quickly gathered just how elaborate the outfits were whilst balancing traditional looks and modern elegance.
