Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra and US singer Nick Jonas are marrying in a Hindu ceremony, a day after exchanging vows according to Christian tradition.
The couple are celebrating their nuptials with friends and family at the lavish Umaid Bhavan Palace in the Rajasthani city of Jodhpur.
Chopra was dressed in a bright multi-colored Indian dress for the Saturday morning ritual.
On social media, they said their wedding was an “amalgamation” of their families, faiths and culture.
They shared pictures of the traditional mehendi ceremony, in which Chopra had her hands and feet decorated with henna by the women of both families.
There was also a cricket match between Team Priyanka and Team Nick ahead of the wedding.
On Saturday, Jonas posted photos of the couple enjoying the traditional Indian Mehendi ritual, where the bride applies henna on her hands as a sign of matrimony.

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 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.
“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 culture. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so amazing,” Jonas said Saturday on Instagram.
That evening saw a glittering event with dance and musical performances by friends and family, including the couple. The evening ended with a starry fireworks display.
“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,” Chopra posted on Instagram.”And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laugher and love.”
