The 'wedding of the year' finally took place on 11 December and the internet is having a meltdown.

Yes, Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli and Bollywood biggie Anushka Sharma (FINALLY) got married (To each other. In Italy. With only their close friends and family. With that panditji we have all come to know and love. In a 'typical Punjabi wedding ceremony'. In a Tuscan resort that had 'tight security and access through invite only'). Yes, it was all true.

This is not a drill. We repeat, this is not a drill.

So here are some real, non-speculative, factual details about the dreamy (and super private) affair which were shared with the media by spokespersons of the couple.

We all know that the news was broken on the internet (and consequently spread like wildfire) like this —

Sharma and Kohli got married in a private ceremony in a Tuscan resort in Italy on Monday. The list of attendees were only close family and friends as the couple wanted the wedding to be a small, cozy affair. The shaadi was as per Hindu rituals. Here are some inside snippets from all the ceremonies that took place.

The ensembles of the couple for each and every ceremony were designed by ace fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

The mehendi outfits looked something like this 

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 A post shared by Sabyasachi Mukherjee (@sabyasachiofficial) on
