The wedding of the year took place in a lavish resort, Borgo Finocchieto, arguably the second most expensive in the world, in Tuscany, Italy with only close friends and family members in attendance.

Engagement

For her engagement, Anushka picked up a Sabyasachi velvet saree, which was made in their signature Gulkand Burgundy. It was hand-embroidered using miniature pearls and the finest quality zardosi and marori. She paired it with a stunning uncut diamond and pearl choker with matching studs. The entire look was complemented with kohl-rimmed eyes, red roses and Sabya’s now iconic micro dot bindi.

Mehendi

Virat opted for a signature khadi kurta churidaar with Sabyasachi’s classic fuchsia pink textured silk Nehru jacket detailed with the Sabyasachi House blazer buttons. A custom tan leather jutti with a zardosi crest was created especially for the ensemble.

Anushka chose to go for a boho look full of bright colors and picked a graphic lehenga in fuchsia pink and Indian orange. It was hand-printed by the famed Calcutta block printers and hand-embroidered with gota and marori. Artists from The Sabyasachi Art Foundation rendered a beautiful sixties pop print and it was silk screen printed, hand woven Indian silk. Anushka accessorised herself with earrings from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection, a stunning pair of jhumkas crafted in 22k gold with Iranian turquoise, tourmalines, uncut diamonds and Japanese cultured pearls. Custom juttis in hand woven brocade and zardosi helped complete her look.

Pheras

For the decor, Anushka wanted something that symbolised prosperity and growth. A beautiful overgrown garden of love was created especially for the couple in ash rose and lavender.

Virat went for an ivory raw silk sherwani hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern and signature house buttons with an old rose silk kota safa by Sabyasachi.

A pale pink lehenga with renaissance embroidery in vintage English colors, embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads was what Anushka’s bridal outfit was made up of. Her bridal jewelry was handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls by the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection. But the hero was the lush Tuscan hydrangeas! The prettiest pink and white peonies covered her hair bun and complemented the pink hues in her lehenga and jewelry.

Anushka and Virat said in a joint statement, “Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share this wonderful news with you. This beautiful day will be made more special with the love and support of our family of fans and well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey.” How cute is that?!

The couple will be hosting a reception in New Delhi for their relatives on 21st December which will be followed by a reception for industry friends and cricketers in Mumbai on December 26.

We wish them a long and successful married life!!
