In a perfect meeting of East and West, Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas took marriage vows in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, Dec. 1.
Bucking the trend of foreign weddings, Priyanka decided to get married in India at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace, touted to be one of the most luxurious wedding venues in the world.
According to the Peoplemagazine, groom’s father, Paul Kevin Jonas Sr, officiated the Christian ceremony, where the couple exchanged wedding bands by famed jeweler, Chopard.
The bride, groom and the members of their wedding party were dressed in Ralph Lauren.
Priyanka wore a custom-made wedding gown from the designer, while Nick wore a custom Purple Label tuxedo.
“Congratulations to @PriyankaChopra and @NickJonas on the occasion of their wedding in Jodhpur, India, this weekend. Ralph Lauren is honored to have dressed the couple Priyanka in a custom Ralph Lauren gown and Nick in a custom Purple Label tuxedo as well as the members of their wedding party,” read a message posted on the Ralph Lauren Instagram page.
Priyanka also became the first actor to be dressed by Ralph Lauren on her wedding. Prior to this, the designer has created bridal gowns only for close family members including his daughter, daughter-in-law and niece.
The label, in a way, is said to have played cupid because Priyanka and Nick, 26, attended the 2017 Met Gala dressed in Ralph Lauren, which took place one week after their unofficial first date.
Priyanka and Jonas, who reached the Blue City of Rajasthan, Nov. 29, are having a dual wedding. A Christian wedding, followed by a grand Hindu traditional ceremony on Dec. 2.
The respective families of the bride and the groom including Priyanka’s mother Madhu Chopra, brother Siddharth and cousins Parineeti and Mannara Chopra and Nick’s parents Paul Kevin Sr and Denise, brother Kevin and his wife Danielle, and brother Joe and his fiancé “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner arrived the same day.
The entire luxury hotel was booked for the wedding guests.
Though Priyanka and Nick have not shied away from documenting their love on social media, the wedding, in typical celebrity traditions, was a strictly private affair, away from prying camera eyes.
With a strict ‘no mobile phones’ policy and exclusive entry, Priyanka and Nick ensured that the wedding pictures come out when they want. Fans, meanwhile, have to keep an eye on their social media accounts for the pictures.
Apart from the family members, Mukesh Ambani with his wife Nita, daughter Isha and sons Akash and Anant attended the wedding.
YouTuber Lilly Singh aka Superwomen, Elizabeth Chambers, wife of actor Armie Hammer, British singer and actor Jasmin Walia were present at the ceremony. Salman Khan’s sister Arpita also attended the wedding.
Bollywood’s favorite wedding couturier Sabyasachi was also spotted among the guests.
Weeks before, Priyanka celebrated her bachelorette party in Amsterdam and the bridal shower in New York City.
Nick proposed to Priyanka on her 36thbirthday and then they flew down to India for a traditional ‘roka’ ceremony.
