For her engagement ceremony, Anushka wore Sabyasachi's signature Gulkand Burgundy saree, hand-embroidered using miniature pearls and the finest quality zardosi and marori accessorised with a stunning uncut diamond and pearl choker with matching studs. Virat opted for royal blue and black three piece suit for this ceremony. For the mehendi, Anushka went with a graphic lehenga in fuchsia pink and Indian orange, hand-printed by Calcutta's block printers and hand-embroidered with gota and marori. She accessorised the look 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 kept it simple in a white kurta-pajama with a red jacket. But the wedding look took the cake. Anushka’s pale pink lehenga with Renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads perfectly complemented Virat's ivory raw silk sherwani hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern and signature House buttons with an old Rose silk Kota safa. She paired the outfit with jewellery handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls. It was such a exquisitely designed trousseau that will make you want to steal it.
Put a ring on it
While Anushka Sharma, as Sejal, spent a wonderful time with Harry, in real life her Prince Charming did all the hard work for her. It took him three months to customise the best wedding ring for his bride. Turns out Virat was very particular about the kind of ring he was looking for his sweetheart as a source close to the couple exclusively revealed to us, “He’s picked a very rare diamond ring for Anushka that has been specially crafted by an ace designer from Austria. The design is unimaginably beautiful and reflects surprising elements, every time you see it from different angles. It costs about Rs 1 crore but it’s totally worth the money because whoever will see it, definitely wouldn’t be able to take their eyes off it.”
A wedding in the vineyards
Both Virat and Anushka have expensive taste and you couldn't have expected them to settle for anything ordinary really. So Virushka, as their fans fondly call them, were hitched at the Borgo Finocchieto, where the Obamas - Barack and Michelle - had stayed during their Italian sojourn. The property is located a four-hour drive away from Milan and has provision for 44 people only at a time. This explains why the star couple chose this place. An intimate affair by the vineyards does seem ideal doesn't it. In fact, a few years ago, in a chat with Harper's Bazaar Bride, Anushka had admitted that if she went for a destination wedding, it would be in a vineyard. That explains it. And their choice of venue is not just famous, it is also quite beautiful, as is evident from the backdrop of the pictures that we are seeing.
The jaymaala jam
For the jaymaala ceremony, Anushka made her entry to the song 'Din Shagna Da' from her own production, Phillauri. Truly, what could have been a more appropriate song than that for her special day! And singer Jasleen Royal could not be happier. She has sung the number and it spells love.
And now, we have been seeing pictures of the two enjoying a DJ party at the venue, which probably took place after the day wedding wrapped up. Post the traditional ceremony, it sure must have been wonderful to unwind to some good music. And today, we saw yet another picture of the newly married couple enjoying the views of the Tuscan countryside. Rumour also has it that the couple have taken off for a Roman holiday. What place better than the romantic Rome for the ideal honeymoon after that high on love wedding!
Well, their happily ever after has just begun and we wish the couple a lifetime of ever-increasing love and happiness. Now, to wait for their grand Indian reception parties in Delhi and Mumbai once they return.
