Modi attends Kohli, Anushka's Delhi reception

Posted December 24, 2017

Mumbai: Till their official confirmation on Twitter, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma had successfully managed to keep their wedding under wraps.

The ethereal couple tied the knot at a picturesque location in Italy on December 11 and looked celestial in Sabyasachi ensembles. Commencing with a reception in New Delhi, the guest list included everyone from Virat's family and friends to cricketers and politicians. The newlyweds Virat and Anushka had personally handed the invitation card to Prime Minister Modi.

Anushka was all smiles as she looked every bit of the newly married bride donning a red sari. The Prime Minister's Office tweeted a picture of the two with Modi as the couple handed over the invite to him. Kohli's close friends and team members like Suresh Raina, and Gautam Gambhir and Shikhar Dhawan attended the party. It was like a typical Punjabi wedding reception. Sabyasachi said, "I don't think Indian brides feel complete without wearing the colour red in one of their functions".

She chose to accessorise the beauty with heritage uncut diamond choker and Jhumkas from the Sabyasachi Bridal Jewellery Collection, which pulled out all the stops for her reception in Open Garden in Taj palace on Thursday night. "The red bindi, the sindoor and the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful".

The colour of the venue was kept a subtle combination of pink and silver and tastefully used crystal and candles lit the reception hall creating a handsome aura.

Kohli on the other hand complemented her in black textured bandhgala with silk kurta and hand embroidered pashmina shawl.

Virat and Anushka will be hosting a second reception in Mumbai on 26 December.
