Priyanka and Nick too happy to feel tired!
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.
