Wednesday 05th December 2018 02:14 EST

Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas tied the knot in a Hindu ceremony at Jodhpur's Umaid Bhawan Palace, on Sunday. The couple had earlier exchanged vows in a Christian wedding on December 1. The groom's father Paul Kevin Jonas Sr had officiated the wedding.

According to various sources, Priyanka has locked down the venue for a week putting in a little over Rs 10 crore. Various international celebrities graced the event including Johnathan Tucker, Elizabeth Chambers, her sister-in-law Sophie Turner, Lily Singh aka Superwoman and many more. While pictures of the main wedding ceremonies are yet to be revealed, the couple shared first photos from her mehendi and sangeet ceremonies. In a joint social media post, they wrote, “One of the most special things that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each others 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 afternoon that kicked of the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.”

The theme of the sangeet ceremony was ‘boys vs girls’. The ceremony saw Priyanka perform with her mother, Madhu Chopra, on the song 'Ram Chahe Leela' from the film 'Goliyon Ki Raasleela' - Ram Leela'. The song 'Gallan Goodiyan' from Priyanka’s film 'Dil Dhadakne Do' was also a big hit.

At the Christian ceremony, their traditional first dance was on Roberta Flack’s The First Time I Saw Your Face, after which they left the venue in a classic red car, owned by the hotel. A fireworks display was organised, followed by a multi-cuisine dinner.

Nick and Priyanka flew out of Jodhpur on Monday, for Delhi, where they hosted a wedding reception on Tuesday. Another reception for their industry friends is being planned for a later date.
