Ace cricketer Virat Kohli and Bollywood diva Anushka Sharma’s wedding in Italy was straight out of a fairy-tale. While people can’t get enough of the beautiful wedding pics doing rounds on social media, not many know that this hush-hush wedding was designed by a Lucknowi girl, Devika Narain.
Devika was the wedding planner for Virushka’s wedding and her husband Joseph Radhik was the official shutterbug for the event. The overwhelmed couple, who had kept the wedding a secret for all this while, finally took to social media to share their happiness.
“Some days, the whole world conspires to make things right. Thank you @virat.kohli and @anushkasharma, it has been an absolute honour and privilege to be a part of your journey,” Devika posted on her Instagram account.
Devika had been so tight lipped about the Wedding that even her parents were not aware of it. Devika’s father Pradeep Narain was quoted saying, “Devika and Joseph had visited Italy about three to four times in the past six months but it was only after the wedding pictures were released that we knew.”
Devika who has been born and brought up in Lucknow, completed her schooling from Loreto Convent Intermediate College. Later she moved to Delhi where she did her English honors from Delhi’s Lady Shri Ram College.She worked with several wedding planners before setting up her own company.
‘Born and brought up Lucknow, growing up I could never have imagined that I would be leading a team of young designers in an attempt to change the landscape of the wedding industry,’ Narain says on her website.
Devika also took to company’s official Facebook account and posted, “It’s finally all settling in, the cold is seeping back in and at this point I’m an odd mix of relief and immense excitement. We’ve been keeping a secret for a couple of months now and all of it has come to life today, in a beautiful tuscan village, where Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma got married.”
“We’re overwhelmed to have been chosen to be a part of such a special day. It means a lot to us to have had their trust, not just in keeping all of this a secret but to create a setting for their big day! Congratulations and thank you! #virushka, she added.
Devika has also planned wedding of Dinesh Kartik and Robin Utthappa and we wish her all the success in her future endeavors.
Lucknow is proud of you Devika!
