The day is finally here! Nick Jonas and his bride-to-be Priyanka Chopra have arrived at Jodhpur for their four-day wedding extravaganza, and so have the celebrity guests.
As we already know, Chopra and Jonas' wedding is set to take place at the Taj Umaid Bhavan Place hotel in Jodhpur, India. The couple have booked the entire hotel for their wedding festivities, and even the adjoining museum has closed its doors to tourists from November 29 to December 3 to avoid any unwanted paparazzi within the palace premises.
The couple arrived at Jodhpur airport at 9:15 am, looking adorable as usual. The couple exited the airport premises with Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner and her fiance Joe Jonas in tow. Chopra and Jonas looked quite the lovebirds as they made their entry while holding hands all the way to the car.
Dressed in a striped white kurti and palazzo, paired with a colorful dupatta, the bride-to-be was all smiles as she was spotted with her beau who wore casuals and added a tan jacket to go with it. With the wedding preparations about to begin, other guests invited to the festivities have also started to pour in, beginning with the couple's family.
Shortly after Chopra and Jonas made their exit, the 'Baywatch' actress' sister, Parineeti Chopra, was seen getting out of the airport, all smiles for her sister's wedding. She was soon followed by Siddharth Chopra, the bride's brother.
The bride's mother arrived in full gusto as she waltzed through the airport beaming the prospect of her daughter's impending wedding. Even the groom's family arrived at the airport in style, which included both his mother Denise and father Paul.
Mama and papa Jonas were also smiling all the way to their car, which was kept ready to take them to the lavish hilltop venue. Kevin Jonas and his wife Danielle arrived soon after, and they had nothing but happiness on their faces for the awaiting paparazzi.
Other celebrity guests who formed the wedding band and were spotted at the airport were Bollywood actor Karan Kundra and his girlfriend, actress, and VJ, Anusha Dandekar. Ganesh Hegde, who is rumored to be the Bollywood choreographer roped in for the couple's sangeet, was seen exiting the Jodhpur airport and so was Superwoman Lilly Singh.
Meanwhile, the Taj Umaid Bhavan Palace hotel is readying itself for what could be called the 'wedding of the year'. Lights and decorations have been set up for the couple's sangeet celebrations which will take place on Thursday, November 29, in the evening, where Jonas is set to perform a medley of his songs while the bride performs a few of her hit dance numbers.
Thursday morning will mostly see the couple engage in the ritual of mehendi (a pre-wedding ceremony where red-orange henna is applied to the bride). And, the haldi ceremony on Friday, November 30 (where turmeric is applied to the bride and groom before their wedding) will be followed by a cocktail party for friends and family on Saturday, December 1.
The couple is scheduled to get married on December 2 where the morning will see the duo get hitched in a Christian ceremony, followed by a traditional Indian wedding in the evening at the same venue. The couple is rumored to have sent out their wedding invitations at the last moment, and only the guests carrying their invitations physically are allowed entry into the hotel premises for the festivities.
It was earlier reported that the sangeet ceremony (the singing and dancing event before the marriage) would take place in Mehrangarh Fort (around 6 km from the wedding venue), but it is now slated to take place at Umaid Bhavan Palace itself due to security issues.
