They’ve made everyone believe in Love again!
As the wedding photographs and videos from the Virushka wedding in Tuscany, Italy have flooded the internet the unanimous verdict is romance and magic couldn’t have had better representation!

Karan Johar probably summed it the best with his tweet this morning –

And what has caught everyone’s fancy is the gorgeous ‘Royal’ look sported by the couple of the moment – Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli.

Throwing light on what went behind their dreamy ethereal looks, Sabyasachi Mukherjee who designed all the looks for the couple from their haldi, to their engagement and to wedding ceremony had this to say in a statement released on his Instagram handle –

“Anushka had to get married in Florence and her lehenga just had to fit in. So we chose a color that would blend in with the whimsical Tuscan surrounding rather than stand out. It was blush pink with tropical flora and fauna, hand embroidered in silk floss. Exotic birds and butterflies were rendered with the finest quality needle craft. It took 67 karigars, 32 days to complete the ensemble. To complement her lehenga, beautiful jadau was handcrafted in uncut diamonds, pearls and pale pink spinel.

Virat wore ivory. A classic Sabyasachi hand embroidered sherwani with an ivory tussar stole and a custom woven gold Chanderi safa.

We at Sabyasachi wish ‘Virushka’ a great new innings.”

In fact, every look by the couple at this magical wedding was explained in great detail by the ace designer:

For her mehendi, 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.

Virat 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.

For her engagement, 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. The entire look was complemented with kohl-rimmed eyes, red roses and our now iconic micro dot bindi.

For her engagement, Anushka wore a stunning uncut diamond and pearl choker with matching studs from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection.

And finally decoding the entire bridal look, Sabyasachi’s official handle gave out these details:

Wow!!! We simply cant stop gushing at how classy and ethereal this new age Royal couple looked on their special day. Feast your eyes a little longer…
