Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli mark their first anniversary with new wedding photographs

All kinds of cute

By ELLE team  December 11th, 2018

On this day, last year, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli got married. The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Tuscany, Italy, in the presence of family and close friends — no media, no intrusive paps, no social media pressure. It was only after they got married that they simultaneously released pictures from the pastel-dipped wedding function — a certified celebrity wedding trend now. 

Today, as the happy couple celebrates their first anniversary, they have once again posted previously unseen pictures from their fairytale wedding, as well as the official film that was shot by The Wedding Filmer. In this video, posted by Anushka Sharma on Instagram, Virat says, “My wife… can I say it again? My wife.” In a speech, he also says, “I feel like I was a child till morning and now I’ve grown up suddenly”.

It’s heaven, when you don’t sense time passing by … It’s heaven, when you marry a good ‘man’ …

7 times Virat Kohli was living proof of the modern day husband every woman dreams of:

5. He makes sure the world knows he's on her side, no matter what.

The most retweeted post of 2016 was Virat Kohli's defence of his lady love, when trolls blamed her for his inconsistent performance on the cricket field. "Shame on people for trolling non-stop. Have some compassion. She has always only given me positivity." But this wasn't the first time that Virat let the world know that he derives strength from Anushka and there's no way he's going to let anybody take potshots at her. 



2. He makes sure they share the same interests

Anushka is a self-confessed dog lover, and the multiple pictures on her Instagram are enough proof to substantiate that. Meanwhile, Virat's devoted to his pet dog Bruno. Having similar interests as your partner helps develop a stronger bond.

3. He wears her ring around his neck

Ladies, if you're looking for a sign, this is it — if your man chooses to wear your ring around his neck, he wants you to know that his heart belongs to you. Forevz.

7. He takes out time for her, no matter what

After their wedding in December, Virat had to travel to South Africa for to prepare for his upcoming series. And instead of leaving his wife alone in Mumbai, he took her along with him and made work into a fun trip. We saw pictures of the two travelling, shopping and enjoying the scenic views of Cape Town. Need we say more?

4. If you're twinning, you're winning

Are you even a power couple if you don't share a great (matching) sense of style? Virat and Anushka are clearly rubbing off on each other — and in the best way possible. Notice how the couple is complementing each other's athleisure style. Matching sneakers, check. Matching backpacks, check. Matching sunglasses, check. Relationship goals, check.

1. He celebrates her, every day

23 million followers and counting, and Virat's not a tad bit shy to express his deep feelings for his lady love. Scroll through his Instagram, and you will find a pattern — Anushka, cricket and staying fit — that explains his priorities in life.

6. In fact, he's a self-professed feminist

Virat Kohli isn't just protective of his wife, he's been happy to show off his feminist leanings time and time again. In a 2015 interview with the Hindu, he made his stand clear, saying, "“It comes from the kind of society that we have built over the years where women have always been known to be treated as inferiors. How can this be done? This mentality is disturbing and needs to be condemned.”

He followed that up with a Women's Day campaign earlier this year where he encouraged his overwhelmingly male following to celebrate the women in their lives.
