Nick and Priyanka, who won the Miss World title aged 17, have been enjoying several days of parties and events. The Indian wedding will reportedly follow a Christian ceremony.

A traditional Indian wedding typically involves about three days of activities, beginning with the ganesh puja. There is then the mehndi ceremony, in which the bride and the female members of her family and friends get henna on their hands and feet. 

That is followed by the sangeet, in which the couples’ families are introduced. A party in its own right, there is usually a meal, dancing, and performances, and every wedding guest is invited. 

Finally, there is the main ceremony, the cocktail hour, and the reception.
