Virat and Anushka married according to Hindu rites, said a statement released on behalf of the actress. The wedding venue was a countryside resort in Tuscany where security had been massively stepped up for the nuptials. Entry to the resort was strictly by invitation. A video of what appeared to be wedding preparations being made at the resort went viral over the weekend.
Both bride and groom were dressed in Sabyasachi. Anushka’s wedding lehenga was pale pink with silver-gold embroidery. Virat’s ivory raw silk sherwani was embroidered in a vintage pattern. Sabyasachi also posted pictures of the Mehendi, with Anushka wearing a brightly coloured lehenga in pink, orange and teal:
