The couple has shred first photos from their Mehendi ceremony. A Mehendi is a Hindu wedding ritual in which “the women in the bride and groom’s families, along with close friends, gather together while the bride has elaborate henna designs applied to her hands and feet.” For the ceremony, the actress wore an Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla gown, with jewelry also created by the design.
A source told People magazine earlier this week: “It is super important to Priyanka to have an Indian ceremony that honors her heritage and culture, just as it’s important to also have a Western ceremony that honors Nick’s Christian upbringing, They are doing both.”
They both shared on their social media accounts that the wedding has taken place today in India. They wrote: “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 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.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
