In an intimate wedding with just family and friends in Italy, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma finally got hitched on December 11, 2017.
The three day extravaganza was not the end of the celebrations. The couple went for honeymoon to Rome and have planned for a grand reception in Mumbai on December 26 for their Bollywood and cricket friends. Another reception is planned in Virat’s hometown, Delhi on December 21.
The box of the Mumbai reception card is in pastel green shade with flower bunches printed on it. The card has a sapling attached with each box of invitation. The theme of the card is an extension of the floral theme of the Italian wedding. Virat has reportedly sent his first invite to Sachin Tendulkar and Anushka has sent hers first to Shah Rukh Khan.
The invite of their Delhi reception is in ivory and silver shade. The couple has started sending cards to the family and friends. Their families have started the second round of celebration after landing in India in the wee hours of Thursday.
Their wedding took place at a heritage resort in Italy. Anushka wore a soft pink Sabyasachi lehenga and Virat chose an ivory sherwani by the same designer. All the outfits and jewellery that Anushka wore for the wedding were exclusively designed by Sabyasachi.
We live for tiny moments like these. The light on this day was stunning on the couple, and we hope our photos can show you that. That lovely background is courtesy @naraindevika.

For her engagement, Anushka @anushkasharma wanted to wear a Sabyasachi velvet saree. And we made it in our signature Gulkand Burgundy. It was hand-embroidered using miniature pearls and the finest quality zardosi and marori. She wore a stunning uncut diamond and pearl choker with matching studs. The entire look was complemented with kohl-rimmed eyes, red roses and our now iconic micro dot bindi.

For her mehendi, Anushka @anushkasharma wanted a boho look full of bright colours. Hot pink was her favourite. We created 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 completed the look. Virat @virat.kohli opted for a signature khadi kurta churidaar with our 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 for the ensemble. #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #SabyasachiJewelry #AnushkaSharma #ViratKohli @bridesofsabyasachi @groomsofsabyasachi
