And the photos are really pretty! They are both super smilely and happy looking, which is how I like my wedding photos, instead of stressed and distressed looking.
As was rumored to be the plan, they got married in Italy. Which is also where Rani and Aditya had their small wedding 4 years ago. I wonder why? I understand the general idea between being to go to a non-desi dominated country as the only way to get totally away from the pressure of their fame. So I know why you couldn’t go to Sri Lanka or London or New York. But why Italy instead of Portugal or Brazil or something? It’s a mystery! Unless there is some legal thing I don’t know about.
Anyway, Anushka and Virat and a few family and friends as yet unidentified fly out of India to Italy, along with the family Pandit (who must have been thrilled to get a free trip to Italy!), they got married, and then posted an official announcement and photos on twitter. Check out the cute cute photos:
And supposedly the plan is to have a grand reception when they get back to Bombay. Which is how Preity Zinta did it, and Saif and Kareena, keeping the wedding semi-private but going all out for the reception. Also, coincidentally, my parents! Private wedding, and then big big reception for all the family friends and stuff that you HAD to invite. I fully approve of this plan.
EXCEPT!!!! They are planning to have the reception on December 26th which is SO TACKY. Because of course, that is Salman’s birthday. So everyone is going to have to pick between their wedding and Salman’s party and it will be a whole thing. Unless they were really stuck with Virat’s playing schedule and that was the only day free, and they called up and asked Salman and he volunteered to cancel any big plans and of course show up at their party to celebrate with them. Which, now that I think about it, is probably likely what happened. So I am okay with it all again. Salman can have a little family party, and then go party all night at a wedding reception, because he loves wedding receptions.
