It was Devika’s father who confirmed that the wedding ceremony of Virat and Anushka get designed by Devika’s wedding planning company.
“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 official got married,” a Facebook post said on Devika’s company’s profile.
“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!” they further wrote.
Devika’s family revealed her assignment was kept as a secret and she told the news to her family only on Monday evening after their marriage. Her family also disclosed she had made frequent visits to Italy in the past four months.
“In recent past, Devika made frequent trips to Italy. But, she never disclosed it to us. Sometimes she said she was moving to Rome, sometimes to Paris. It was only on Monday evening when she broke the news to her grandmother confirming that they designed the grand wedding that we came to know about it,” said Pradeep, a local promoter of SPIC MACAY.
Her father revealed that Devika joining the wedding planning industry was just by chance, as her first aspiration was to be a journalist.
“After completing her schooling from Loreto Convent Intermediate College, Lucknow in 2006, she went to Lady Shri Ram College and did English honours,” he said.
