Year’s Most Awaited Wedding, Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma tie the knot in Italy

Virat and Anushka Wedding

Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli tied the knot with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma in a private ceremony in Italy on Monday, 11 December 2017.

Kohli tweeted the announcement late on Monday night. “Today we have promised each other to be bound in love for ever. 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,” he tweeted.

Sharma too tweeted the announcement.

The cricketer had previously denied rumours of an engagement in January this year, saying, “We aren’t getting engaged and if we were going to, we wouldn’t hide it. Simple… Since news channels cant resist selling false rumours & keeping you confused, we are just ending the confusion.”

The couple will be hosting a reception in New Delhi for their relatives on December 21, followed by a reception for industry friends and cricketers in Mumbai on December 26, 2017.

The bride Anushka wore a pale pink lehenga with Renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads. The bridal jewellery, handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls, was by the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection.

The groom looked smart in an ivory raw silk sherwani hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern, with an old rose silk kota safa. The couple, who has been together for four years, is said to have chosen a luxury heritage resort Borgo Finocchieto, a little over 100 km away from here, for their nuptials. They appointed boutique wedding planning and production experts Shaadi Squad to ensure their celebrations were special and classy.

The world’s second most-expensive holiday destination played host to Virat and Anushka’s Tuscan wedding. It is a resort called Borgo Finocchieto, just 34 kms from the Siena station and an hour’s drive from Tuscany.

The invitation card is tastefully designed with pale silver embossments on an ivory back ground. The writing is in golden with the names of Anushka and Virat written in a heritage-themed font.
