The wedding of the year is complete. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have finally tied the knot after 3 years of will they-won't they. The couple were married in a traditional Punjabi ceremony in Tuscany, Italy on 11 December, Monday. While the marriage was a quiet, family-only event, the pictures and videos from the ceremony have inevitably made their way to social media. Needless to say, the internet is abuzz with it.

The pictures of the jaimala, haldi and the wedding ceremonies were shared online by several guests of the couple. Donning Sabyasachi couture, the couple were dressed to the nines for their special event.
Kohli even sang at the sangeet, with his wife-to-be watched him in the audience.
While Kohli's teammates and several members of the Hindi film fraternities were absent from the wedding, it did not stop the boisterous cricketer from enjoying it to the fullest. Dressed in his kurta, the captain got footloose during his haldi ceremony.
For her side, Anushka Sharma spared no effort to look the part on a special day. The actress wore a colourful 'boho look' for her mehendi ceremony designed by Sabyasachi, while Virat sported a pink Nehru jacket and kurta to go with it. Writing on his Instagram post, designer Sabyasachi mentioned that 'hot pink was her favourite'.
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
But it was her wedding lehenga that truly earned the envy of women across the world. The actress walked down the aisle in style to the romantic wedding song from her film Phillauri.

You can be an actress, a politician or a corporate power broker, but every bride succumbs to age old traditions on their wedding day! Fashion can come and go but we at Sabyasachi believe that tradition is timeless and forever! Sometimes the way forward lies in revisiting the past.

This was followed by a traditional 'vidaai' (farewell) given to the bride by her family. Sharma certainly looked the part, having played it in films like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (2008).
Needless to say, the event made up in style what it lacked in star presence. The wedding took place at the Borgo Finochhietto heritage hotel in Tuscany. The hotel is set in an 800-year old village that has been restored by the owners of the hotel. The place costs a whopping Rs13.5 lakh rupees per night.
The reception saw the two exchange rings. Despite the attention being showered on them, from the videos it looks like the two had eyes only for each other. Sharma wore a burgundy velvet saree while Kohli stuck to the traditional suit.
The couple are expected to hold a lavish reception in New Delhi on the 21 December, and another one five days later in Mumbai. Post these events, Kohli is expected to join the Indian cricket team in South Africa, and will return alongwith Sharma to India only in the new year.
