In the year 2000, when an 18 year old Priyanka Chopra won the Miss World title, little did people know what she was going to achieve in the years to come. Stepping into Bollywood seemed like the obvious choice and that is what she did, but with her talent, good looks and an incredible amount of hard work, Priyanka soon emerged as a force to reckon with, in the Indian movie industry. She was not scared to take on any types of roles and was willing to go the extra distance to bring a sense of realism to every character she portrayed.
However, her talent was not one that would be limited to the borders of India and very soon, she become a household name in the international entertainment world too. By landing the lead role of Alex Parrish in the American television show, Quantico, Priyanka made her first foray into the global entertainment industry and soon she was to share screen space with the likes of Dwyane Johnson and Zac Efron in the movie Baywatch.
But little did Priyanka herself know that with all this fame would come the much elusive love into her life. Little did she know that a whirlwind romance awaited her in the form of Disney star and musical prodigy Nick Jonas. Although Nick knew from the very minute he met her in person that this was the woman for him, Priyanka took a little more time, but she was soon to be swept off her feet by the charming Nick and within a few months of courtship, they were both ready to say I do to each other.
The big fat Indian style wedding was held in Udaipur, and the three ceremonies had Priyanka looking like the true blushing bride. Her wedding was the talk of the town and people were a lot more interested in how she looked and what she wore.
For her mehendi, she chose to wear a vibrant outfit, created especially for her by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. The flared outfit had shades of yellow, pink and green and was the perfect choice for a simple, yet stunning look for the mehendi ceremony.
Next to follow was the Christian ceremony, for which Priyanka chose to look every bit the Christian bride. Dressed in a stunning white gown, it was her veil that stole the spotlight – the 75 foot long train looking incredible. The wedding gown was created in about 1900 hours by the designers at Ralph Lauren. The sheer gown had long sleeves and had floral and scroll motifs all over them, along with about 24,00,000 mother of pearl sequins.
The next ceremony to follow was a traditional Indian wedding, for which, yet again Priyanka chose to go traditional. This intricately designed crimson red outfit was created by renowned Indian designer Sabyasachi. The lehenga had hand cut organza flowers and Siam red crystals and took the efforts of 110 embroiders, who spent close to 3700 hours to complete this creation.
Next on the itinerary was the Delhi reception, where Priyanka chose to wear a champagne coloured lehenga choli with an intricate net dupatta. This outfit was created by Falguni Shane Peacock, and had intricate embroidery and beading work. The short choli was covered with elaborate embroidery, which is perhaps why the dupatta was kept on the lighter side.
