A Glimpse Inside Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma’s Fairytale Wedding in Italy
Confirming the rumors and speculations that have been making rounds in the tabloids for weeks now, Anushka and Virat tweeted on Monday “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.”
And what a journey it has been. The two started dating in 2013 when they worked together on a shampoo advertisement. Though both of them were not overly public about their relationship, they didn’t try too hard to hide it either. They visited each other during shoots and tours. Virat even blew a kiss towards Anushka when he celebrated his test hundred in Melbourne and when he got a half-century in the match against Sri Lanka in 2014.
The couple tied the knot in one of the most expensive holiday properties in the world – a countryside resort in Italy. From the pictures, it all looks very dreamlike.
Stunning in Sabyasachi
Anushka has always had a great fashion sense and even has her own signature apparel line ‘Nush’. For all events in Italy, ‘Virushka’ were dressed by Sabyasachi who wanted to give the couple different looks for every function.
Looking bright and vibrant, Anushka wore a graphic lehenga in orange and fuchsia pink for her mehendi. The blouse was blue with yellow, green and pink flowers. The gota and marori hand embroidery was done by the famous Calcutta block printers. Virat wore a simple khadi kurta churidaar with a fuchsia pink textured silk Nehru jacket.
For the engagement, Anushka wore a Sabyasachi velvet saree in Gulkand Burgundy. The embroidery was done by hand and included miniature pearls, zardosi and marori. She teamed it up with a choker and studs with uncut diamonds. Virat looked striking in a blue suit.
For the wedding she wore a gorgeous pale pink lehenga with multicolour floral motif, hand embroidered in silk floss. The lehenga itself took 32 days to complete. For jewelry she wore a jadau set handcrafted in pearls, uncut diamonds and pale pink spinel. Virat wore an ivory-colored, hand-embroidered sherwani and a tussar stole.
