Actress and former Miss World Priyanka Chopra married American singer Nick Jonas in a traditional Hindu ceremony in Jodhpur, after three days of wedding celebrations which included a colourful mehendi ceremony, a friendly cricket match and a power-packed 'desi' musical evening.
Priyanka looked "breathtaking in her traditional red Indian wedding outfit", a source told E! News about the Hindu ceremony on Sunday. "Nick did a beautiful job following the customs of a Hindu ceremony. It was lovely seeing how they honoured both of their heritages," the insider added.
