Katy Perry, 25, and Russell Brand, 35, exchanged wedding vows on Saturday night in India. The traditional Hindu ceremony was held at luxury resort Aman-i-Khas in Rajasthan, the same location where the couple got engaged in December.
A Christian minister conducted the ceremony. Both Brand and Perry wore traditional Indian clothing to the wedding. The bride wore a sari, as did a number of other female members of the wedding party. Animals, including 21 camels, elephants and horses were used in Brand’s wedding procession, along with Indian dancers and musicians.
Last week Brand told the ladies of The View: “I’m trying to preserve it, to keep it a beautiful thing. I think people get the wrong idea on how we want the wedding to play out. Love between two people is the most spectacular, yet ordinary thing in the world.” Check it out on video after the jump.
Their 80 guests arrived several days prior to the nuptials and were treated to song and dance performances and a safari. Security has been tight at the resort, which has been lit with colorful lamps to illuminate the trees during the six day wedding celebration.
Brand hired 13 vehicles to take the wedding guest on a tour of the tiger sanctuary following the ceremony.
Their rep issued this statement: “Russell Brand and Katy Perry are overjoyed to confirm that they were pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Brand on Saturday, October 23. The very private and spiritual ceremony was attended by the couples’ closest family and friends. The backdrop was the inspirational and majestic countryside of Northern India.”
