It couldn’t have been a better wedding anniversary present for Virat Kohli in Australia. Just a day before he celebrates arguably the biggest day of his life with wifey Anushka Sharma, his team conquered the hosts and in the process, relieved the pressure off the captain’s shoulder.
It was on December 11, 2017, that this power couple decided to tie the nuptial knot in Tuscany, Italy. Dressing up in Sabyasachi, the bride had every eye upon her on the day when she turned up in a lovely pale pink lehenga. Kohli, on the other hand, was on the level term with his raw silk sherwani being the headline of following day’s tabloids.
It is really crazy how fast time flies and how things progress. Now, that the couple has completed their one year of love, we here take a look at their best moments:
Honeymoon in Finland:
For their first wedding trip, the couple chose the Land of a Thousand Lakes, Finland, as their destination. Rovaniemi – also known as the official home of Santa Claus – to be precise. And visiting the place in mid-December was a perfect time, to say the least. Rovaniemi is known for its alluring view of Northern Lights, which is visible for almost 200 nights in a year.
Taking to Instagram, Anushka Sharma wrote, “In heaven, literally” and we can sense why.
New Year Celebration:
As captain Virat Kohli had his international duty to take care of against the Proteas, the couple decided to spend their new year’s eve in “The Rainbow Nation”, South Africa. Sharing a lovely picture together, Anushka wrote, “Wishing you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year! Love and light to all” And as it turns out, the presence of the lady luck worked wonders for Kohli as India won the ODI as well as the T20I series.
First birthday for Anushka post-marriage:
Anushka celebrates her birthday on May 1 and this year’s celebration was the first occasion she celebrated the day as Virat’s wife. And guess what, the Indian captain left no stones unturned in the celebration and made it big with rose petals, cakes and candles. Sharing the picture on Instagram, the actress wrote a lovely message. “Best birthday with the bestest, kindest, bravest man in the world. Love you for making it so special my love”.
Enjoying a little time off in England:
India had a forgettable time in England this year, as they lost out the ODI as well as the Test series to the hosts, but managed to keep their heads high after winning the T20I series. In the midst though, many players managed to get some time off and this couple of one of them. Also accompanied by Shikhar Dhawan and wife Ayesha Dhawan, the couple enjoyed their time and shared a glimpse of their tour with their fans.
Celebrating first Karwa Chauth:
Like many other occasions, October 28 was their first Karwa Chauth together and they made sure their fans get what they were waiting for all day long. Showering love, Kohli took to Twitter and wrote, “My life. My universe. Karvachauth” while wife Anushka Sharma said, “My moon, my sun, my star, my everything Happy karva chauth to all.” They just can’t get enough of each other, do they?
Celebrating Virat’s birthday:
Indian captain Virat Kohli celebrated his 30th birthday on November 5 this year and the couple decided to celebrate the occasion in Haridwar. Sharing a glimpse of their lovely time together, Anushka’s message for her man was simple and subtle; “Thank God for his birth ❤️✨”.
First Diwali together:
Unlike many, Virat and Anushka decided to celebrate their first Diwali together away from fireworks. While the former styled himself in churidar-kurta, the latter stunned the fans in a beige-coloured saree while also donning a heavy neck piece. Sharing a picture, the actress wrote, “Happy Diwali from our home ✨ May you all find the light in you this Diwali.”
There is no word which can describe the intensity and the love you share with your partner. Virat, however, tried his best and expressed his love by saying, “can’t believe it’s been a year already because it feels like it happened just yesterday. Time has truly flown by. Happy anniversary to my best friend and my soulmate.Mine forever.”
We wish the lovely couple a very happy anniversary and wish them every success in the future.
