'We made it our own' - Priyanka Chopra shares first pictures from inside wedding to Nick Jonas
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have shared a glimpse behind the scenes of their wedding celebrations.
The couple posted pictures from their Mehendi ceremony in Chopra’s native India – a pre-wedding ritual which sees family and friends gather as the bride has henna designs drawn on her hands and feet.
In identical posts on social media, Chopra, 36, and Jonas, 26, said the festivities had “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 cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so so amazing. An important part of the pre wedding rituals 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. @nickjonas

The pair are said to have gone on to tie the knot in a Christian ceremony on Saturday.
