On 11th December 2017, acclaimed actress and producer Anushka Sharma tied the knot with her boyfriend of four years, the captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli.
It was a Tuscan wedding for the couple at the luxury heritage hotel Borgo Finocchieto, Tuscany, Italy. The wedding was kept a private affair attended only by family members and close friends of the couple.
The couple’s attire for their special day was put together by courtier Sabyasachi Mukherjee. The bride wore a pale pink lehenga of the Renaissance style, adorned with vintage english colours, an embellishment of silver and gold metal threads. The jewellery was an elaborate ensemble of Japanese cultured pearls, uncut diamonds, and a spinel matching the lehenga. The groom, on the other hand, wore an ivory raw silk sherwani in a banarasi pattern and a Kota Safa matching the bride’s lehenga.
Shaadi Squad were the appointed wedding planners. The ceremonies ranged from a mehndi function to the engagement party. The decor throughout was kept to a minimum and whispered elegance.
A few hours after their wedding, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli took to Twitter to announce their wedding. The message read,
“Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you. This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans & well-wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey.”
Following the wedding, a reception will be hosted for relatives on December 21 in Delhi at Durbar Hall in the Taj Diplomatic Enclave and another for industry friends and cricketers in Mumbai on December 26.
