The ceremony took place on the lower terrace of the Villa del Balbianello in Italy’s Lake Como, the same place where the couple tied the knot on Wednesday. The lower terrace and the mandap were decorated with red roses, with Ranveer’s favourite Bollywood songs playing.

The baraatis arrived dancing to Bollywood songs and most male members of the family were seen in red pagris. The female relatives all wore shares of red and pink to the wedding.
The security measures at the wedding have been compared to that provided for world leaders, with drone interceptors in the sky and guests being made to wear special wrist bands and scan unique QR codes on their phones to gain entry. Therefore, pictures from the ceremony have been hard to come by.
Earlier, Associated Press shared a video that showed the two at the villa’s patio with their families. The video also showed the guests arriving for the wedding in boats.
