The wedding was solemnised as per Hindu rituals, with the bride and groom looking resplendent in ensembles by celebrated couturier Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
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. The bridal jewellery, handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls, was designed by the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection.
The groom looked smart in an ivory raw silk sherwani, hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern with a gold Chanderi safa.
