Priyanka and Nick too happy to feel tired!

Khaleej Times - City Times - - FRONT PAGE -

AFTER A “FAIRY­TALE” wed­ding with Amer­i­can singer Nick Jonas, Priyanka Cho­pra is beam­ing with seam­less joy.

“On a scale of 1 to 10 in hap­pi­ness, I’m on 12,” Priyanka said on stage at her wed­ding re­cep­tion at the Taj Palace Ho­tel on Tues­day night, as Nick smiled away.

“I’m a fan of In­dian wed- dings,” said Nick, who has em­braced In­dian tra­di­tions since his roka cer­e­mony with Priyanka in Mum­bai in Au­gust.

There was no trace of tired­ness on the newly mar­ried cou­ple’s face de­spite al­most a week full of cel­e­bra­tions. But like Priyanka said, “It’s all merry time... No time to be tired.”

Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi at­tended the re­cep­tion to con­grat­u­late the new­ly­mar­ried cou­ple. He was es­corted on stage by Priyanka’s mother Madhu Cho­pra, and re­mained on stage for about 10 min­utes, meet­ing Nick and Priyanka’s fam­i­lies with folded hands and ex­chang­ing pleas­antries.

For the re­cep­tion, Priyanka daz­zled in an el­e­gant and shim­mer­ing Fal­guni and Shane Pea­cock en­sem­ble with a multi-lay­ered di­a­mond neck­lace and ear­rings, with her hair neatly tied in a bun com­plete with white roses. She flaunted the “choora” - tra­di­tional red ban­gles worn by a Pun­jabi bride - and sported ver­mil­lion. Nick was dressed in a vel­vet din­ner jacket and com­pleted the look with a bow tie.

The cou­ple of the night posed with panache, but also en­gaged in ban­ter through­out the party even as guests queued up to meet them one after an­other.

The venue, the Dur­bar Hall at the Taj Ho­tel, was done up el­e­gantly with ex­otic white and soft pink flow­ers. There was also an el­e­ment of quirk with a vin­tage car which read “Just Mar­ried”, apart from ex­otic flower ar­range­ments adorn­ing the hall.
