"Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever."
At long last, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma have now married! On 11th December 2017, the much-loved couple tied the knot in a romantic wedding.
Their ceremony took place near the idyllic city of Tuscany, in an 800-year-old restored village called Borga Finocchieto.
While reports first revealed the news, Virat and Anushka made the official announcement on Twitter. With heartwarming messages and stunning pictures, they both said:
“Today we have promised each other to be bound in love forever. We are truly blessed to share the news with you.”
Anushka shared an image of herself and her new husband, both with huge smiles.
Anuska opted away from traditional red to a peach attire, wearing a dazzling, light gown. She also wore glamourous jewellery; a shimmering choker necklace, accompanied with flowers and maang tikka.
