We can easily call 2018 the year of high profile celebrity weddings.
From Bollywood, several couples took their marriage vows including Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas, and Sonam Kapoor-Anand Ahuja.
While some celebrities suddenly announced the news others decided to involve the social media and of course, shared lovely photos.

Sonam Kapoor, well known as a fashionista, chose Anuradha Vakil as the designer for her wedding attire. She wore a captivating traditional red lehenga for the wedding. The wedding photos were shared by all from Karan Johar to Karishma Kapoor on Twitter and Instagram.
Priyanka Chopra and her beau Nick Jonas were married in December 2018. It was a superb coming together of two cultures. The wedding took place at the gorgeous Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, on December 2 and 3.
They celebrated with two beautiful wedding ceremonies – a Hindu ceremony and a Christian ceremony. For their Christian wedding, the couple and their families wore suits tailored by Ralph Lauren. Social networks went crazy over Priyanka’s long veil.
The Hindu wedding took place in the Umaid Bhawan Palace, with the fort of Mehrangarh in the background. Chopra wore a lehenga made by Sabyasachi.
After four films and six years of dating, Deep-Veer had the most extravagant celebrity wedding of the year. The actual marriage of Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh was a private ceremony.
