In a surprising turn of events, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli tied the knot last evening in Tuscany. Usually when a “secret wedding” is planned in Bollywood, you always get a whiff of it. Well, this has got to be that ‘Break The Internet’ moment of 2017, because not only did anyone expect this, tbh, I didn’t even know they were engaged!
So since my entire feed was filled with the Virushka Wedding, I stalked to my heart’s content and found out pretty much everything a girl could about her hair, makeup, jewellery and both their outfits. Because really, wedding outfit inspiration is something I can keep collecting all day, everyday.
Here’s what I found out, and I’ll keep updating it as soon as I see more:
Both the bride and groom wore Sabyasachi for the wedding
Anushka wore “a pale pink lehenga with Renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads“. While on Virat we saw, “an ivory raw silk sherwani hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern and signature House buttons with an old Rose silk Kota safa.”
Her wedding jewellery was also crafted by Sabyasachi
She wore a Sabyasachi uncut diamond and spinel choker, earrings and mathapatti. While the jewels look stunning, how gorgeous are the fresh flowers in her hair?!
She picked Sabyasachi for the Mehendi as well
Here’s how Sabyasachi describes the look, “Anushka 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.”
There was an engagement ceremony held in Tuscany, and (surprise surprise!) Anushka wore Sabyasachi
“Anushka 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.”
We don’t have a full look of her burgundy number, but there are videos and with those red roses in her hair, Anushka looks like perfection!
They were styled by Allia Al Rufai while Puneet B Saini was responsible for Anushka’s gorgeous makeup and Gabriel Georgiou was the hairstylist.
