Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were surrounded by loved ones when they tied the knot at a stunning Indian wedding ceremony on Sunday. The newlyweds, who married after a seven-month relationship, enjoyed a weekend of lavish festivities at the five-star Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. The stunning nuptials centered on the respect and celebration of each other’s backgrounds, faith and culture. The wedding itself was split into two – a Christian ceremony and a Hindu ceremony the following day.
During the first part, the Bollywood beauty looked incredible in an exquisite custom Ralph Lauren gown, which featured floral and scroll motifs and lace-effect tulle appliqués with scalloped sleeves and a high-neck collar. The look was topped off by a 75 feet long tulle veil. Her groom wore a custom Ralph Lauren label six-button double breasted black and custom patent lace up dress shoes. Inside of the purple lapel of the tuxedo, he added a small piece of lace from the bride’s dress embroidered with the Urdu words “My Jaan” which translates to “My Life”.
Adding a special touch, the wedding dress boasted eight words in hand-stitched embroidery, specially chosen by the bride. In addition, Priyanka had a piece of her mother-in-law’s lace wedding dress sewn into her dress.
“When Ralph Lauren approached us (they’re so much a part of our love story for obvious reasons) and I learned that Ralph has only designed three wedding dresses in 50 years – one for his daughter, his daughter in law, and his niece – I was blown,” the bride exclusively told HELLO!
For the Hindu ceremony, Priyanka looked every inch the beautiful bride in a traditional Indian outfit by noted designer Sabyasachi Mukherji. She stunned in a deep red lehenga. The striking garment featured heavy detailing of intricate embroidery and fine jewels as well as sequin work. The stunning bridal garment was teamed with traditional gold jewellery and a flower garland. Meanwhile, Priyanka’s new husband also looked handsome in an Indian ensemble.
