OOP Digital Desk: It was one of the most closely guarded events in recent times. Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, and leading Bollywood actress and producer Anushka Sharma, had a fairytale wedding at Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany, Italy, beating the hounding paparazzi back home. The entire event was planned and executed by Devika Narain, while her husband Joseph Radhik was the official photographer.
Devika is a celebrity event planner and Joseph an award winning photographer.
Devika’s father Pradeep Narain told the media that her daughter had kept the entire Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma wedding a secret. It was only on 11 December that Joseph telephoned Pradeep and asked him to congratulate Devika for handling the assignment. It was then we learnt about it, Pradeep said.
The first photographs of the Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma wedding were tweeted after Joseph spoke to Pradeep.
The Lucknow-born Devika schooled at Loreto Convent and later attended Delhi’s Lady Shri Ram College.
Pradeep said, Joseph and Devika visited Italy several times over the past few months, but we had no idea for what purpose.
Devika tweeted about her assignment after everything was over.
We've been keeping a secret for a couple of months now and all of it has come to life today where @imVkohli and @AnushkaSharma got married.We're overwhelmed to have been chosen to be a part of such a special day.
Congratulations and thank you! pic.twitter.com/w6o0FHq5L6
