There were a lot of celebrities, lots of dancing, and mostly — lots of love.

You might have missed the countless headlines about a small wedding that happened in Italy involving this Bollywood actress and a cricketer.

So, here I am to help you out and break down EVERYTHING that happened at what is being touted as the "Wedding of the Decade":


4. They exchanged rings while Ed Sheeran's hit romantic number, "Thinking Out Loud", played in the background, and shared a genuinely heart-melting moment after.

5. And, of course, it being an Indian wedding — someone from the crowd shouted, "DAAL DE", just as Virat was about to put the ring on.

8. Virat's haldi ceremony also looked like a lot of fun, with some ribbing from his fam.

12. Anushka made her entry to the mandap with Jasleen Royal's version of "Din Shagna Da", and we were all a weeping mess.

This version of the song was also used in Anushka's home production, Phillauri.


13. At the mandap, some of Anushka's girlfriends lifted her up so that she could hang the varmala around Virat's neck.

14. Unlike most brides weeping at their bidaai, Anushka left smiling from ear-to-ear and looking like a million bucks.

15. During the afterparty, Virat serenaded Anushka with "Mere Mehboob Qayamat Hogi" from Mr. X In Bombay.

16. They then THREW IT DOWNNNN.

17. At some point after the festivities wrapped in Italy, they shared this moment.

19. The next leg of their nuptials began with these little saplings they sent as invites for their reception.

They made it ! Our heartiest congratulations to Anushka & Virat. We pray that this love story goes on forever and e…


25. The PM actually made it to the reception and brought them... one rose each. Anushka had a pretty hearty laugh about it too.

For those cribbing about the gift, I would like them to note that the PM's presence was a present (or I'm sure he would have liked us to think so).

26. Later that night, Virat dedicated this dance to his mom.

27. Anushka made it rain and danced with some money in her mouth.

28. They did a little jig together while Gurdas Mann performed.

29. At some point, Mann even made some jokes about Anushka's expensive clothes, making her laugh out loud.

30. Anushka also danced to "Mauja Hi Mauja" with Shikhar Dhawan.

32. Virat himself just took the baby to dance with Shikhar Dhawan and Gurdas Mann.

37. But, they later jammed to "Chaiyya Chaiyya", so all was good.

38. Kangana Ranaut, Rekha, and Madhuri Dixit-Nene shared some #GirlLove before the party.


44. The cricketers joined the couple on the dance floor.

45. In fact, Hardik Pandya and his brother Krunal even headlined a special performance for the couple.

48. The couple danced even after the party was over, and I don't blame them because dammit I want to hold on to this as long as possible too.
