Priyanka and Nick tie the knot


IT WAS the most awaited wed­ding in Bol­ly­wood by far and Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas de­liv­ered mas­sively!

The cou­ple took to so­cial me­dia to share cap­tured mo­ments from their se­ries of pre-wed­ding and wed­ding cel­e­bra­tions.

The Mehendi and Sangeet took place on Fri­day, while they were of­fi­cially mar­ried on Satur­day in a Chris­tian cer­e­mony at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodh­pur.

The for­mal­i­ties were of­fi­ci­ated by, Kevin Jonas sr (Nick’s fa­ther) who is also a pas­tor.

Shar­ing pho­tos of her Mehendi, Priyanka wrote: “An im­por­tant part 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.” (sic)

Com­ment­ing on the Sangeet, she said: “It all be­gan as a fierce song & dance com­pe­ti­tion be­tween the fam­i­lies but ended, as al­ways, as a huge cel­e­bra­tion of love. Nick and I were look­ing for­ward to the Sangeet (mu­si­cal evening), another pre-wed­ding rit­ual… and to see what each side had put to­gether.

“And what a per­for­mance it 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.” (sic)


Priyanka wore Abu Jani San­deep Khosla Cou­ture for her Mehendi – 48-mul­ti­pan­elled or­gandy sher­wani em­bel­lished in silk de­tail­ing and con­tain­ing two or­ganza lay­ered drapes.

The Sangeet was a blend of West­ern and Bol­ly­wood dances with the cou­ple and their loved ones, with Nick show­ing off his Bolly dance skills, above.

The Daily Mail re­ported that one of Priyanka’s ex­trav­a­gant wed­ding gifts – a pair of ear­ings worth close on $80 000, just over R1 mil­lion – was gifted to her by her mother-in-law Denise Jonas. They are ap­par­ently by French lux­ury jew­eller Van Cleef & Ar­pels.
