Hot pink is the new red, if the awesomeness at Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s wedding is any indication. Virushka, one of India’s most coveted couples recently tied the knot in a classy Tuscan resort in Italy donning strikingly amazing ensembles by celebrated couturier Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Meanwhile, it is all ‘wonderful’ for the designer to have worked with the couple.
A timeless aura about the clothes and accessories for the bride and groom…
Artists from The Sabyasachi Art Foundation rendered a beautiful sixties pop print and it was silk screen printed, hand woven Indian silk. The groom looked smart in an ivory raw silk sherwani hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern, with an old rose silk kota safa. Take a better look.
For the D-day, Anushka wore a pale pink lehenga with Renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads.
"Hot pink was her favourite,” said the celebrated designer. “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."
Anushka accessorised the bright look with collection from recently launched Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry. The bridal jewellery was handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls.
A pair of jhumkas crafted in 22 carat gold with Iranian turquoise, tourmalines, uncut diamonds and Japanese cultured pearls, custom juttis in hand woven brocade and zardosi completed the look.
From engagement to mehendi and sangeet to the wedding and post-wedding dinner, the team designed the clothes for both bride and groom.
The cricketer went for a signature khadi kurta churidaar with a 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.
The designer ensured Anushka sported a different look at every function. For her mehendi ceremony, Mukherjee says she wanted a boho look full of bright colours. Anushka went for a velvet sari for the engagement in the label's signature Gulkand Burgundy.
"It was hand-embroidered using miniature pearls and the finest quality zardosi and marori. She wore a uncut diamond and pearl choker with matching studs," Mukherjee described. Her look was complemented with kohl-rimmed eyes, red roses and the label's iconic micro-dot bindi.

The newlyweds also took to their social media accounts to celebrate the moment with their fans. "Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you," they wrote. They also shared their wedding photographs.
A string of congratulatory messages from the film and sports fraternity followed the official announcement. The wedding was solemnised with the bride and groom looking resplendent in these exclusive ensembles.
