While we are almost around the end of the year 2017, what’s better way to bid bye to the year than the biggest wedding of the year that we just witnessed? We are sure you have already guessed which celeb wedding we are talking about. It’s is none other than the beautiful celeb couple, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma.
A lot of conjectures were buzzing around and literally, everyone was keeping a tab on the social media platform about their wedding news from the time, Virat wanted a break in December from his captain duties as he mentioned he needs rest. On the other hand, Anushka flew to Italy with pandit and later, even Virat followed. Since then, there were speculations about the two getting married.
On Monday evening (December 11, 2017), the social media was flooded with photos, videos and tweets after the two made the official announcement to let the world know that they tied the nuptial knot in Tuscany, Italy in a private ceremony.
Thereafter, Virushka was trending on the social media and it seems like the world collectively is cheering and congratulating the dazzling pair. What is commendable is how they successfully guarded this news until they were mister and missus. Being one of the most famous celeb couples, being zipped from the media about such big news like their wedding is itself a difficult or we can say, next to impossible task. Unlike other celebs, the duo kept the news secretive and later gave us more than we expected, is something really appreciating.
But how they planned and what made them turn from will they-won't they to they finally did?
As per the reports by India Today, the two families met and discussed about their wedding in Sri Lanka while Virushka kept the entire world busy by flooding their gardening photos on social media. As per their family priest, December was the ideal time and hence, the preparation began.
The duo kept the news secretive whenever they spoke about each other. In one of the interviews, when asked about her personal life, Anushka had mentioned that she wants to focus on her work and not her personal life. On the other hand, Virat’s post about his to-be-wife kept the media busy with his adorable words. Such a smart way to keep the world busy, without putting the limelight on their wedding preparation, right?
On the day of the wedding (December 11, 2017), Yash Raj Films revealed to the world that the wedding has taken place and that the media was misguided as the couple wanted to keep it a private affair. He was quoted as saying:
“We are very happy to announce that Ms. Anushka Sharma and Mr. Virat Kohli got married at a private ceremony in Italy, today. The wedding was attended by close family and a few friends as they wished their wedding to be a very private affair. The wedding was performed as per Hindu rituals. Top fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee has designed the wedding ensemble for both the bride and the groom. Virat and Anushka will now start inviting all industry friends and colleagues for the celebrations that are set to happen in Mumbai.”
Later, the couple themselves took to their official Instagram handle and shared the news with the world by sharing this aww-dorable wedding picture:
And sweetly captioned it as:
“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 and well wishers. Thank you for being such an important part of our journey.”
Nevertheless, the secrecy and privacy didn’t daunt Virat and Anushka and they put up a remarkable show where they nailed it in everything they did. Everything from the gestures by the duo after exchanging rings to wedding looks, from Anushka’s grand bridal entry to the décor and not to miss, their royal looking classic outfits, everything scored high, making it a super-exclusive wedding of the year.
The designer Sabyasachi designed the couple’s entire outfits.This is what he said:
“We designed the clothes for both bride and groom for all the functions. From engagement to mehendi and sangeet, for the wedding and post-wedding dinner.”
The dashing groom looked suave in a light-coloured ivory raw silk sherwani with hand-embroidery in a vintage benarasi pattern and to complete the look, an old rose silk kota safa made him look the most handsome dulha.
The pretty actress looked like one of the gorgeous brides, wearing a Sabyasachi light pink-coloured lehenga with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads. Other than her outfit, her heavy jewellery and minimal make up added charisma to her look.
As per the reports by the leading tabloid, India Today, Chef Ritu Dalmia was in charge of the catering of the wedding. There was a mix of Indian and Italian delicacies being served which included everything from porcini mushrooms wrapped in bikaneri roti to stuffed ravioli with paneer kurchan. While the complete wedding menu was customised, it had an extensive variety of south Indian food to Indian desserts like rabdi and a lot more.
All in all, the spectacular grand wedding was nothing less than a dream destination fairy tale wedding and for sure, the happily married Virat and Anushka are giving major couple goals to all the to-be-weds and an inspiration to all, that love is above all and it binds one together!
Until now, the social media is flooded with their wedding pictures and videos. And now that their union is officially announced, as per the reports, the couple will be hosting a grand reception party on December 21 for their families and for their industry and cricket world friends on December 26. Their first reception is scheduled to be held in Delhi of which even the invitation card is revealed. Going by it, the reception will take place at the Durbar Hall–the largest venue at Taj Enclave, with the capacity to accommodate 1,000 guests.
Here's is a look at the simple yet elegant reception invite:

While we wonder what the next plan is in their newly married life, as per the sources, the couple will be travelling to South Africa where the cricketer, Virat will start his preparation for his upcoming series and the newbie wife, Anushka will spend her New Year’s Eve with her newbie husband. She will then be back to the bay, in the first week of January to begin her shooting for her next film with SRK. She will be seen promoting her production, Pari, which will be released on February 9, 2018.
