Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma tied the knot in Tuscany yesterday. While some exclusive pictures of the couple have surfaced, everyone is wondering what went into getting the blushing bride and groom ready for their big day.
From clothes and jewelery designed by Sabyasachi to makeup by Puneet B Saini, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma had the crème-dela-crème at their beck and call.
The wedding took place in at a resort housed in a restored 13th century Tuscan village. Sabyasachi said that he was delighted at the opportunity to work with Virat and Anushka, and added that considering the ambience of a romantic place like Tuscany, the bride and the groom had to be dressed traditionally and still and Mukherjee ensured there was a timeless aura about the clothes and accessories for the bride and groom.

"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, and heritage jewellery from recently launched Sabyasachi label. "It was wonderful to work with the couple. From the House of Sabyasachi, we wish Anushka and Virat a very happy married life," Mukherjee told IANS.
As he shared pictures of the couple and their attire on Instagram he said, ‘You can be an actress, a politician or a corporate power broker, but every bride succumbs to age old traditions on their wedding day! Fashion can come and go but we at Sabyasachi believe that tradition is timeless and forever! Sometimes the way forward lies in revisiting the past.’

The designer ensured Anushka sported a different look at every function. For her mehendi ceremony, he says she 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," Mukherjee shared in an Instagram post.

As for Virat’s look, Sabyasachi took to Instagram saying, “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.”
