Introducing The New Mr & Mrs Jonas
Priyanka Chopra, 36 and Nick Jonas, 26 married at the weekend in a lavish three day celebration, merging two very different families together.
The fun kicked off with a Sangneet on the Friday night, with both sides of the families taking part in a dance off that told the story of Chopra and Jonas’ love story. Writing on her Instagram, Chopra shared it was a night they will never forget and will cherish forever.
Two ceremonies took place at the weekend, in the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace, with the happy couple wanting to respect the faiths of each family. On Saturday, a Christian ceremony took place with Jonas’ father, who is a pastor, officiating. Then on Sunday, Chopra took part in Mehendi, the application of henna tattoos on the bride before meeting Jonas, who was culturally and handsomely dressed like royalty for the Hindu ceremony.
For the Western ceremony, Chopra looked drop-dead gorgeous in a custom made Ralph Lauren sheer wedding dress that was decorated with jaw-dropping two million mother of pearl sequins and a 75-foot long veil. Jonas also wore Ralph Lauren, they both wore Ralph Lauren at the Met Gala 2018, which was their first official appearance together, so it was only fitting they wore the same on their wedding day. Only four other brides have ever worn a Ralph Lauren wedding dress and they were family members, making Chopra’s dress even more special!
For the Hindu ceremony, Chopra wore a red lehenga by designer Sabyasachi Mukherji, the traditional colour for the bride and Jonas looked handsome dressed as a royal in a turban and sherwani! Both bride and groom took a ride on an elephant and had a 40-foot long floral canopy called a mandap. Nick rode in on a horse, as is custom, with his loved ones dancing and a live band.
On Monday, the happy newlyweds were spotted kicking off their new life together at Jodhpur airport, and it seems they could be heading on their honeymoon. If it’s anything like their wedding, it’ll be lavish and unforgettable!
The happy bride wore a turquoise and gold sari by Sabayasachi, accessorising with Celine sunglasses and her handsome new husband on her arm. Jonas complimented her look in a khaki jacket and trousers by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture with Westward Leaning shades.
The red streak in her hair, vermilion, indicates that she is now a married woman and she was still wearing her ceremonial bangles.
Their honeymoon plans are yet to be revealed yet, but we’ll be keeping a close eye on their Instagram for you, we’re not jealous at all!
On Tuesday, the newlyweds hosted another reception in New Delhi where the blushing bride wore a layered traditional gown alongside her handsome husband, and they were joined by family and friends, including Joe Jonas’ fiance, the actress Sophie Turner, who looked beautiful in a traditional Indian dress.
