Preparations are in full swing at the plush Villa del Balbianello in Italy's Lake Como Bollywood power couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh's wedding. The couple, who have left for Italy on Saturday night, will be tying the knot on November 14th and 15th. 

Deepika and Ranveer announced their wedding dates in October and since then have maintained a stoic silence on the wedding details. They may not have confirmed the venue, but a photo of the alleged venue- Villa del Balbianello at Lake Como - has been doing the rounds of the internet, which fans of the couple, state, is the location of the wedding. In the photo preparations for an event can be seen being made at the venue.

Surrounded by family and selective friends - including Shah Rukh Khan, Farah Khan and Sanjay Leela Bhansali - the two stunning young Bollywood stars will tie the knot in two separate ceremonies; a Konkani ceremony in celebration of Deepika`s Kannada heritage and a second Sindhi do in tribute to Ranveer`s family.Also see: Why Lake Como became the chosen venue for the couple

Security is, understandably, almost water-tight. However, the villa was open to the public until late on Sunday when it was put on lockdown for the remainder of the week.

The bride and groom left Mumbai along with Ranveer's family in the wee hours of Sunday. Deepika and Ranveer colour coordinated their outfits in white and smiled at the camera even as they were mobbed by the paparazzi while entering Mumbai's international airport.

Deepika's team of stylists are also headed to Lake Como. Amit Thakur, who works as Deepika's stylist, has also flown into Lake Como while stylist Karishma Prakash is already in Milan. Also see: Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh visit Sanjay Leela Bhansali's home to invite him for wedding

Celebrations started earlier this month with a ceremonial Puja in Deepika's hometown Bengaluru- photos of the ceremony were shared by Deepika's stylist. 

Ranveer hosted a Haldi ceremony at his residence a few days later- picture of the event went viral on social media soon after. 

The bride and her family are reportedly going to wear Sabyasachi Mukherjee designed outfits. It is not known yet which designer Ranveer has chosen for his wedding.
