Russell Brand And Katy Perry Get Married
Pair wed in traditional Hindu ceremony...
The couple married on Saturday, 23 October at a luxury Indian resort in Ranthambore National Park, in the heart of a wild animal reserve.
The ceremony started with an elaborate wedding procession which included 21 camels, elephants and horses, with the groom riding into the venue on an elephant. Russell was dressed in white; his bride wore a traditional sari.
The lovebirds worshipped at a statue of elephant-headed Hindu God Lord Ganesh before sitting on ornate thrones in front of a Hindu priest, as a select group of friends and family watched on. They then followed traditional rituals such as walking around a sacred fire seven times and trying a scarf together to symbolise their unity.
The wedding is the centre of six days of celebrations which included a Bollywood-themed party on Friday night with Russell, Katy and all their guests wearing traditional costumes. The party will continue until after Katy’s 26th birthday on 25 October.
The newlyweds chose a Hindu wedding because the comedian proposed to Katy in Jaipur on New Year’s Eve.
