Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Tie The Knot!

Celebrity favourites Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra married in India at the weekend, and the lavish celebrations certainly lived up to everyone’s expectations!

After a four month engagement, the much talked about wedding between Nick Jonas, 26, and Priyanka Chopra, 36, took place last weekend in a magnificent three day celebration in Chopra’s home country of India.

Celebrations started on Friday, with the Christian ceremony being officiated by Jonas’ father, a pastor, on Saturday 1st December, and the Hindu ceremony taking place on Sunday 2nd December.

Chopra wrote on her Instagram ‘one of the most special things that 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 of the pre wedding rituals for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.’

Mehendi is the application of henna tattoos to a bride’s feet and hands; the couple also took part in Haldi ceremonies, where they were cleansed with turmeric to wash their pasts clean, allowing them to restart together.

Another pre-wedding celebration that took place was the Sangneet (musical evening). Writing on Instagram again, Chopra wrote ‘and what a performance is was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends.’

What did they wear?

Chopra and Jonas both wore traditional dress for both ceremonies. Jonas was dressed like royalty, as is customary for a Hindu ceremony, and rode in on an elephant, while Chopra wore a customised Ralph Lauren gown for the Christian ceremony.

Chopra also joked with Vogue saying people will need a vacation after the three-day celebrations!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
