"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.

Their wedding celebrations were in tune with the majestic venue - the royal Umaid Bhawan Palace, situated atop a hill in this 'Blue City' in Rajasthan.

Priyanka, 36, and Nick, 26, first exchanged vows in a Christian ceremony officiated by the groom's father on December 1. They wore custom-made Ralph Lauren ensembles - a good fit as the two stars had shared the spotlight for the first time as guests of the designer at the 2017 Met Gala.

Their fans were swooning over some of the tidbits they shared of the #NickYanka pre-wedding ceremonies.

Priyanka sported a multi-hued folksy Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla lehenga at the mehendi, channelling the desi look, while Nick sported an aqua kurta by the same designers. They also incorporated a friendly cricket match, competing as "team bride vs team groom".

As for the sangeet, a video and photographs shared by Priyanka suggest it was no less than a Bollywood awards night complete with a stage, elaborate light set-up and props as well as energetic performances.

Priyanka's cousin and actor Parineeti Chopra, who performed on stage, welcomed Nick warmly to her family and is all praise for her jiju (brother-in-law).
