Priyanka and Nick Unveil First Official Shots from their Three-Day Wedding
Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra's first official wedding photos have been unveiled by Hello! Magazine, showing the happy couple at both their Christian and Hindu ceremonies in Jodhpur over the weekend.
The Christian ceremony, which took part on Saturday, saw the bride walk down the aisle in a custom Ralph Lauren gown, which took a total of 1,826 hours to complete and featured two million mother of pearl sequins, with her groom, 26, matching in a suit from the same US designer.
A day later Priyanaka, 36, stunned in a deep red lehenga - a traditional Indian outfit by noted designer Sabyasachi Mukherji, adding Western-inspired twists.
Taking an incredible 1,826 hours to create, the custom dress was hand beaded and hand embroidered with Swarovski crystals and two million mother of pearl sequins, while a 75 feet long tulle veil completed her look.
Priyanka's is only the fourth wedding gown Lauren has designed, with the others all for family members.
Sewn into the embroidery of Chopra's dress were also eight moving messages, People report: 'Nicholas Jerry Jonas' (her husband's full name), '1st December 2018' (their wedding date), 'Madhu & Ashok' (the names of her parents), 'Om Namah Shivay' (a Hindu mantra invoking Lord Shiva), 'Family,' 'Hope,' 'Compassion,' and 'Love.'
As a string quartet played, the bride was escorted down the aisle by her mother (she lost her father to cancer in 2013), with both the bide and groom admitting to People.com that emotions were running high.
'It was all tears. All tears. I could not hold it in. I think I was nervous and scared. But as soon as the curtains opened, and I saw his face it was just like everything settled and I knew I was making the best decision of my life.'
As for Nick, 'the emotions were running high during the ceremonies, I think especially during the Western wedding for me,' he said. 'You know you think your whole life about that moment. Honestly, I could not have imagined it would be as perfect as it was. It was highly emotional.
The couple continued celebrating their nuptials on Tuesday with an elaborate wedding reception in New Delhi, India.
The Bollywood star and American singer married in a Christian ceremony presided over by the groom's pastor father before Hindu celebrations on Sunday, inviting 225 guests to their epic weekend.
Priyanka told People: 'I love that our wedding was a religious mash-up. We took beautiful traditions that we both grew up with and personalised them in a way that made sense for us. It's been incredible to find the commonalities between our beliefs and figuring out how to blend them in a respectful and meaningful way.'
After the Christian ceremony on Friday came a chockablock Saturday, with the Mehendi during the day followed by a traditional Sangeet party that is held the night before an Indian wedding.
The couple got engaged after Nick proposed to Priyanka just after her 36th birthday in Crete in July after a whirlwind romance.
