Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have reportedly tied the knot in a Western ceremony in India, according to PEOPLE. 

And with guests teasing at the exciting nuptials at the $60k a night Umaid Bhawan Palace over the last few days, the publications goes on to detail the grandeur of their first big ceremony, which was said to have been officiated by the singer’s pastor father, Paul Kevin Jonas Sr on Saturday night in Jodhpur. 

The bride, 36, was said to have stunned in a custom Ralph Lauren gown, while Nick, 26, also chose the same designer for their big day – where the former Miss.World’s brother Siddharth Chopra and the American star’s three brothers, Kevin, Joe and Frankie, served as groomsmen. 

They’re MARRIED! The grandeur of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ Western ceremony in Jodhpur on Saturday night, which was said to have been officiated by the singer’s father, Paul Kevin Jonas Sr, has been extensively detailed

A source told PEOPLE earlier this week: ‘It is super important to Priyanka to have an Indian ceremony that honours her heritage and culture, just as it’s important to also have a Western ceremony that honors Nick’s Christian upbringing. They are doing both.’

Meanwhile, with Ralph Lauren Collection being their choice for the 2017 Met Gala that occurred at the start of their romance, it’s no surprise the entire wedding party was kitted out in the designer gear. 

Ralph Lauren has previously only designed and made wedding gowns for family members including his daughter, daughter-in-law and his niece – but made an exception for the TV-and-movie star.

Although it is normally the bride that makes a show-stopping entrance, Nick admitted during an interview with Vogue that he will be following Indian custom and arriving on horseback ‘dressed like a king’, wearing a turban and holding a sword.

During the interview Chopra suddenly thought to check that her fiance was comfortable riding horses, but he was quick to reassure her that he couldn’t wait to make his grand arrival.

The couple got engaged after Nick proposed to Priyanka on her 36th birthday in London in July after just a few months of dating. The star proposed with a diamond ring from Tiffany’s.

Priyanka and Nick’s love story actually began way before, when the Jonas Brothers star first slid into the actresses DMs in 2016.

Priyanka’s best friend, The Duchess Of Sussex. According to an Us Weekly source, the Duchess will not be travelling to India due to her pregnancy.

The pair have been friends since January 2016 when they met at the Elle Women in Television event and hit it off from there. ‘Priyanka is unbelievable,’ Meghan told the Press Trust Of India in July that same year.

‘She has become a really good friend. ELLE in the US hosted a dinner celebrating Women in TV, and we met that night – turns out she really likes Suits.’

Priyanka’s parents, father Ashok and mother Madhu, were both physicians in the Indian Army. Priyanka’s father sadly passed away in 2013. The family is considered by many to be the most powerful family in the Hindi movie industry.

Because of their jobs, Priyanka moved a lot while growing up, and attended several schools including La Martiniere Girls’ School in Lucknow and St. Maria Goretti College in Bareilly.

When she was 13, though, they sent her to the US to live with her aunt, who also moved quite a bit and sent her to school in Newton, Massachusetts; Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Queens, New York.

She finally moved back to India for her senior year of high school at the Army Public School in Bareilly after being bullied in America.

It was during her senior year that Priyanka won a local beauty pageant, and her mother entered her in the Femina Miss India. She went on to win Femina Miss India World, Miss World 2000 and Miss World Continental Queen of Beauty—Asia & Oceania at the Millennium Dome in 2000.

It was after her pageant wins that she started getting Bollywood film offers, which she spun into a lucrative Hollywood career

Meanwhile, ahead of the weekend countless boxes of fireworks driven in from neighbouring Mumbai, were seen piled in a field.  

Meanwhile in the sprawling gardens, silver stage scenery was being constructed for the alfresco afterparty, indicating singer Nick will possibly take to the stage to serenade his bride with a musical performance.

Palace employees were seen milling around the gardens as they prepared for the ceremony.

Guests began arriving at the palace on Thursday afternoon and it’s thought they will be staying there for the remainder of the week.
