Pic­tures from the wed­ding al­bum of Priyanka Cho­pra and Nick Jonas were fi­nally un­veiled Tues­day, af­ter days of an­tic­i­pa­tion by fans and me­dia alike, with Peo­ple mag­a­zine car­ry­ing im­ages of the cou­ple who tied the knot in Jodh­pur ear­lier this week.

The five-day fes­tiv­i­ties cul­mi­nated in a two-day rit­ual, start­ing with a Chris­tian wed­ding that saw both Cho­pra and Jonas dressed in Ralph Lau­ren.

In a video that ac­com­pa­nied Peo­ple’s story,

Cho­pra is seen walk­ing down the aisle in a 75-foot long veil that re­quired five peo­ple to carry it as she made her way to the al­tar.

Later, in an In­sta­gram post, Lau­ren stated the strap­less col­umn dress worn by Cho­pra was em­bel­lished with pearles­cent se­quins and over­laid with a hand-em­broi­dered, high-neck coat and satin-cov­ered but­tons.

“The em­broi­dery in­cluded eight sig­nif­i­cant words and phrases se­lected by the bride, in­clud­ing ‘Fam­ily’, ‘Hope’ and ‘Com­pas­sion,” wrote Lau­ren.

Dressed in pow­der blue, her mother Madhu Cho­pra gave her away; the bride’s father Ashok Cho­pra died of can­cer in 2013. Jonas is also seen walk­ing down the aisle arm-in-arm with his mother Denise Miller-Jonas, dressed in a Lau­ren de­signed dou­ble-breasted tux with a piece of the bride’s dress han­dem­broi­dered with the words, ‘My Jaan’ (My Life) at his lapel and over his heart.

The fol­low­ing day, the cou­ple ex­changed vows once again, with Cho­pra dressed in a red Sabyasachi Mukher­jee de­signed lehenga (tra­di­tional skirt and blouse). He also shared de­tails of the out­fit, de­scrib­ing her hand-em­broi­dered cus­tom-made en­sem­ble cov­ered with hand-cut or­ganza flow­ers, Siam-red crys­tals and thread­work that took over 100 em­broi­ders work­ing more than 3,720 hours in Kolkata to get it ready for the big day.

Her jew­ellery, also by the de­signer, saw Cho­pra wear­ing Mughal-styled pieces of un­cut di­a­monds and emer­alds and Ja­panese pearls. Mean­while, Jonas wore a hand em­broi­dered sher­wani (tra­di­tional In­dian at­tire) de­signed by Sabyasachi, ac­com­pa­nied by a Chan­deri tis­sue safa or tur­ban. The wed­ding fes­tiv­i­ties con­cluded with a tra­di­tional bidaai or de­par­ture where Cho­pra for­mally left her mother’s home. Held at Umaid Bhawan Palace, the wed­ding saw 225 guests in at­ten­dance, in­clud­ing Game of Thrones ac­tress and fi­ance to Joe Jonas, So­phie Turner, along with Cho­pra’s cousin and ac­tress Pari­neeti Cho­pra. The cer­e­monies kicked off on Novem­ber 30.

“I love that our wed­ding was a reli­gious mash-up,” the ac­tress said in her Peo­ple in­ter­view. “We took beau­ti­ful tra­di­tions that we both grew up with and per­son­alised them in a way that made sense for us.”
