Jodhpur: Actress and former Miss World Priyanka Chopra married American singer Nick Jonas in a traditional Hindu ceremony here, after three days of wedding celebrations which included a colourful mehendi ceremony, a friendly cricket match and a power-packed 'desi' musical evening.

Chopra looked "breathtaking in her traditional red Indian wedding outfit", a source told E! News about the Hindu ceremony on Sunday.

"Nick did a beautiful job following the customs of a Hindu ceremony. It was lovely seeing how they honoured both of their heritages," the insider added.

From their 'roka' ceremony in August to their wedding, Nick has embraced Indian traditions whole-heartedly. Priyanka also ensured an occasion like Thanksgiving Day was celebrated like it's meant to be with Nick's family.

"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 amazing," Priyanka and Nick wrote on their respective Instagram page on December 1 when they shared glimpses of their 'mehendi' revelry.

Representatives for the couple were not reachable for comment. The venue of the wedding, the Umaid Bhavan Palace in the Indian city of Jodhpur, has been cordoned off to outsiders and no media were allowed near.

Local police on Saturday had to intervene after the couple’s security men had an altercation with photographers who were trying to take pictures of the venue, a witness said.

The palace is the home of the Jodhpur royal family, but part of it has been converted into a hotel with peacocks roaming 26 acres of landscaped gardens.
