Nick had a special performance planned for Priyanka Chopra, their wedding photographer says it was an ‘amazing sangeet ceremony’ Priyanka and Nick’s Christian wedding is scheduled for Saturday
Like Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, it appears that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have also requested the guests at their Jodhpur wedding to not share pictures from the festivities on social media. However, tidbits from Priyanka and Nick’s sangeet ceremony on Friday night have hit the Internet. A guest from the grand wedding told DNA that Priyanka wore an embellished outfit with a kundan and diamond jewellery for the ceremony and the 36-year-old actress also dedicated a special dance performance to Nick, who in turn had a surprise planned for his fiancée. As per the source, Priyanka was emotional after Nicks’ special performance.
The photos shared in the post are ones from Chopra’s mehendi (or mehndi) ceremony, a celebratory pre-wedding tradition in many South Asian cultures involving the elaborate application of henna on the bride-to-be. There, Chopra wore a beautiful Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla gown while partying with friends and family.
The couple told Vogue that they’re marrying at Umaid Bhawan Palace, a pink sandstone-and-marble palace in Rajasthan. They will have two ceremonies — a traditional Indian wedding and a Christian service officiated by Jonas’ pastor father — that will take place in different spaces within the palace.
Jonas, Chopra and their families have embraced each other’s backgrounds with wide open arms. Chopra told Vogue that, during the pair’s August roka ceremony, a traditional engagement celebration, Jonas led the prayers.
“It was such an incredible coming-together of two really ancient cultures and religions,” Chopra said of the event. “Nick did the Hindu prayers. … Even I can’t say them. But he did it in Sanskrit. The Indians were so impressed with their National Jiju.”
As for wedding attire, Ralph Lauren confirmed in a tweet that the couple, along with their wedding party, will wear custom-made Ralph Lauren pieces. Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra wore Ralph Lauren designs on several occasions, including to the 2017 Met Gala. After announcing their engagement, the couple also attended Ralph Lauren’s 50th anniversary celebration together during New York Fashion Week in September.
