The multi-day festivities — dubbed India's "wedding of the year" — continue on Sunday with a Hindu ceremony for the US singer Nick Jonas and "Quantico" actor Priyanka Chopra .
Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas have tied the knot at a lavish ceremony in a royal Indian palace before friends and family.
Fireworks lit up the sky as the celebrity couple exchanged vows on Saturday in a Christian ceremony at the opulent Umaid Bhawan palace in Jodhpur, in the western desert state of Rajasthan.
They were joined in the fabled "Blue City" by their families, including Jonas's brother Joe Jonas and his fiancee, British actor and "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner.
The multi-day festivities — dubbed India's "wedding of the year" — continue on Sunday with a Hindu ceremony for Chopra, 36, and Jonas, 26.
"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," Chopra posted on her Instagram account on Saturday.

It all began as a fierce song & dance competition between the families but ended, as always, as a huge celebration of love. Nick and I were looking forward to the Sangeet (musical evening), another pre wedding ritual.. and to see what each side had put together. And what a performance it was. Each family telling our stories through song and dance, filled with lots of laughter and love. We were both filled with gratitude for the effort, the love and the laughter and will carry the memories of this special evening for the rest of our lives. It is an amazing start to a lifetime of togetherness for our families and friends.. #grateful
The couple got engaged in August, sharing photos on social media showing them performing a prayer ritual in traditional Indian garb.
For their star-studded nuptials, keenly followed by Bollywood devotees and celebrity watchers, fashion designer Ralph Lauren created bespoke outfits.
"Ralph Lauren is honoured to have dressed the couple as well as the members of their wedding party," the designer posted on Twitter on Saturday.

The wedding celebrations commenced with a traditional Indian "mehndi" ceremony, with Chopra's arms and legs intricately painted with henna dyes.
Chopra wore vibrant Indian colours while Jonas was dressed in an embroidered 'kurta', an elaborate tunic.
Chopra, who won the Miss World pageant in 2000, is one of Bollywood's most identifiable stars and one of the few to have achieved success in the West.
She starred in the ABC thriller series "Quantico" and has released songs with US chart-toppers including Pitbull and The Chainsmokers.
Jonas first found success as a child, as the frontman of The Jonas Brothers with his two siblings.
The brothers hailed from a deeply devout Christian family and presented a wholesome image, including wearing purity rings to promote chastity.
In recent years, Jonas remodelled himself with a more mature and edgy image, and has also turned to acting.
