Mumbai: After a dream wedding in Tuscany, Italy on December 11, a Finland honeymoon and a grand reception in New Delhi on December 21, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma are set to host a lavish wedding reception in Mumbai on Tuesday.
The newlyweds landed in the Maximum City from the national capital on Friday and are gearing up for a big bash before Virat Kohli-led Indian side leaves for a gruelling South Africa series where Team India will play three Tests, six ODIs and three Twenty20s.
However, before that, here are all the details – from invitees, invitation card to the venue – of the Virushka wedding reception in Mumbai.
The wedding reception in Mumbai will take place on December 26 at the St Regis hotel, situated in Lower Parel.
The lavish Astor Ballroom of the hotel, which boasts of 23-foot-high ceiling and crystal chandeliers will host the wedding reception.
The Ballroom is located on the ninth floor of the hotel and can accommodate around 300 people at one point of a time. Considering the wedding reception is expected to be attended by who’s who of the Mumbai celebrity circuits – from Bollywood stars, industrialists and the Indian cricket team members – the humongous 6,433 square feet-ballroom is divided into three parts - pre-function area, Central Ballroom and the Astor terrace, allowing free movement for the people who will attend the function.
The floor-to-ceiling glass windows at the Astor terrace ensure ample sunlight and moonlight at the Ballroom and keep the venue airy.
While their wedding card was beautiful and the invitation card for the New Delhi wedding reception won quite a few plaudits, the invitation card for the Mumbai wedding reception is equally stunning. Have a look:
