It has been called the most high-profile wedding yet the most hush-hush wedding that she has done so far. But wedding planner Devika Narain couldn't tell anyone that she had landed the wedding of the year.
'It's finally all settling in,' Narain finally said on Facebook yesterday. '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 and Anushka were 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.'
Known for helming big fat weddings, she has helped with the Dinesh Karthik and Robin Uthappa's weddings.
'Growing up in a family that was always looking for an excuse to celebrate was a blast! Reasons like "because we're family" or "cos we just won a match" were always enough. Now I'm finding excuses to bring people together and bring back the happiness that has always been a part of celebrations.'
She operates under her brand - Devika Narain and Company, which was born on the dining table of a small rented apartment with a simple concept of creating fantasies from paper to reality.
