It’s official! Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are now married. The celeb power couple tied the knot in a lavish, multi-faith, multi-day celebration in Jodhpur, India over the weekend. Teasing a few photos from the mehendi ceremony and the sangeet (musical evening), the couple has yet to post any photos from their Christian or Hindu ceremonies, which took place at the Umaid Bhawan Palace on Saturday and Sunday. It is reported that the couple had a strict no cell phone policy for their guests, so we’ll have to wait until the couple reveals the photos themselves. However, many details from the weekend’s events have been revealed, and we’ve rounded up what we know so far.
The mehendi party

One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other's faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part of the pre wedding rituals for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed. @nickjonas
Chopra and Jonas took to social media to release photos from the mehendi party, a traditional pre-wedding ritual in which the bride has elaborate henna designs painted on her hands. Chopra, wearing a bright, multi-coloured organdy sherwani by Khosla Jani, can be seen dancing in one photo, and laughing with the guests including future sister-in-law actress Sophie Turner, who is engaged to Jonas’s brother Joe, as well as her mother-in-law Denise Jonas. Jonas was also pictured posing with his love, wearing a pale green Banarasi cotton Bhakiya kurta, also by Khosla Jani.
The sangeet celebration

It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love. Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends…#grateful @nickjonas 📹/📷: @calebjordanlee @josevilla @josephradhik
The sangeet is a musical event in which the bride, groom and their guests perform songs and dance routines. We have no doubt that Jonas and Chopra’s sangeet evening was highly anticipated, given their musical backgrounds. The couple’s videos and photos show that it was a high-energy, fun-filled event with all their guests participating. Chopra included a touching caption alongside her post on Instagram. “It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love,” she wrote. “Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together.” Several clips include Jonas leaping and dancing across the stage, as well as Joe Jonas taking to the mic to perform. In one photo, Chopra can be seen dancing alongside her mother, Madhu Chopra.

The bride and groom exchanged vows in a Christian ceremony officiated by Nick’s father, Kevin Jonas Sr., who is a pastor. We love that the couple wore custom outfits made by Ralph Lauren, a special nod to the designed who created their outfits when they first stepped out in public together at the 2017 Met Gala. In fact, Ralph Lauren has previously only designed gowns for family members, making the couple a rare exception to this rule. Ralph Lauren also designed the attire for the groomsmen—Jonas’s three brothers, Kevin, Joe and Frankie along with Chopra’s brother, Siddharth. According to E! News, the couple wed under a white canopy with pastel flowers, and Chopra wore a long veil as part of her attire.
The OTT fireworks
After the ceremony, the sky above the Umaid Bhawan Palace was alit with an elaborate fireworks display, a festive way to mark the start of the couple’s journey as husband and wife and to end the day’s festivities.

On Sunday the couple were married in a traditional Hindu ceremony. In an interview with Vogue, Jonas confirmed he would be wearing traditional attire, including a turban and a sword. He is also said to have ridden into the ceremony on a horse, as per tradition, and him and Chopra rode an elephant before exchanging floral garlands in the varmala ritual, according to the India Times. Chopra is said to have worn an ensemble by Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
The celebrations are still ongoing…
The newlyweds, as well as their family and guests, were seen arriving at the airport in New Delhi, where it is reported that the couple will have a wedding reception on Tuesday. “People will need vacations after this wedding,” Chopra told Vogue.
