HELLO! confirmed that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas married in a lavish Jodphur ceremony on Saturday, which will be covered exclusively by HELLO! in the issue out Monday 10 December. Here are all the details about the three-day celebrations.
The pre-wedding party
Priyanka dazzled in a traditional Indian rainbow gown by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla and Nick also took the traditional approach by wearing a kurta by the same designer. The lovebirds looked happy and relaxed at their mehendi ceremony, which is a Hindu wedding ritual that takes place one or two days before the wedding. Taking to Instagram, Priyanka wrote: "One of the most special things our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other’s faiths and cultures and so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi." She added: "Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed."
Priyanka enjoyed getting henna on her hands and arms, her friends wore saris and she joined in with the traditional dancing. She and Nick also took a casual approach by wearing sunglasses to the outdoors ceremony. Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner - who is engaged to Nick's older brother Joe - also joined in the fun while wearing a beautiful black lehenga.
The wedding day
The wedding took place at the luxury five-star Umaid Bhawan Palace the following day, with a Western Christian ceremony which was officiated by the groom's father Paul Kevin Jonas Sr. The pair tied the knot amid much speculation following a seven-month relationship. The star-studded nuptials were attended by the couple's nearest and dearest, including Nick's brothers Kevin, Joe and Frankie Jonas. The groom's parents Paul and Denise joined Priyanka's mother Madhu Chopra and her cousin Parineeti Chopra
