Social media went berserk with the photos and videos of the duo from Italy. After some candid clicks from the D-day came a series of pictures from their wedding functions. The couple’s clothes for the wedding were designed by one and only ace designer Sabyasachi. Let’s take a look at all the pictures:
This is how their wedding invitation looked like:
The couple had the engagement ceremony on the 9th of December where Anushka looked hot in a red velvet saree while Virat wore a three-piece blue suit.
The mehendi ceremony was held on 10th December, where Anushka Sharma was seen wearing a graphic lehenga in fuchsia pink and Indian orange while Virat opted for a fuchsia pink Nehru jacket with a white kurta pyjama.
The Haldi ceremony gave us the feels of a Punjabi wedding with loud Punjabi songs in the background, though the wedding took place in Italy, the feel of it was quite Bollywood. Virat is seen blushing as his relatives are applying Haldi on his face.
Virushka’s wedding was held on the 11th December where the couple looked like a dream. The wedding venue and the outfits of the couple and everything else was colour coordinated with shades of pink. The pastel pink outfits were beyond perfect! Anushka’s wedding lehenga was pale pink with silver-gold embroidery. Virat’s ivory raw silk sherwani was embroidered in a vintage pattern. The ceremony was performed according to Hindu rituals.
