Anushka and Virat chose a countryside vintage resort in Tuscany for taking vows, and the security was tightened further because of high profile wedding. It is speculated that since the place is far from media limelight, the couple chose this as their preferred place for wedding.

As per a report, the resort is having 22 rooms and only 44 people can stay in the resort at a time.


Check out some of the most beautiful images shared on various social media platforms since the news broke.

Both Virat and Anushka decided to go for a Sabyasachi outfit for this stunning photoshoot!


And here, the celebrated designer himself explained how he designed the gorgeous outfit for the bride.


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
