Over the past few days, Priyanka Chopra‘s been drip-feeding her Instagram followers snippets of her wedding weekend and glimpses of the colourful ensembles she wore. But, finally, the first photos of the star’s white wedding dress have been released.
The custom gown, which took 1,826 hours to complete, features floral and scroll motifs in addition to scalloped sleeves, beads, embroidery and a high-neck collar.
The sheer gown was worn over a strapless column dress made up of over two million mother of pearl sequins.
But it was 36-year-old Priyanka’s 75-foot veil that stole the show. Five people were needed to hold it up as she walked down the aisle.
Meanwhile, the actress’ husband, singer Nick Jonas, also wore Ralph Lauren: a six-button, double-breasted black tuxedo paired with custom patent lace-up dress shoes.
In a loving tribute to his bride, he added a small piece of lace from her dress stitched with the Urdu words ‘My Jaan’ – ‘My Life’.
For the Hindu ceremony, Priyanka wore a traditional Indian outfit by designer Sabyasachi Mukherji, with the photos taken by photographer Jose Villa, again being featured in Hello!.
The two-piece ensemble consisted of a skirt and matching top, peppered with fine jewels, sequin and embroidery.
“I always knew I wanted a red traditional silhouette for my wedding but Sabya brought in incredible French embroidery to the mix and with incredible jewelry and western inspired veil it was just such an amalgamation of who I am!” she told Hello!.
An elaborate Chopard necklace featured 184.50-carats of pear-shared diamonds set in 18k ethical white gold.
Nick, too, wore a traditional Indian outfit for the Hindu ceremony.
The pair tied the knot during a three-day affair at Jodhpur’s Umaid Bhawan Palace.
