Katy Perry, Russell Brand Married in India
Pop star Katy Perry is now officially Mrs. Brand. Perry and British comedian Russell Brand tied the knot on Saturday at a luxury resort inside the Ranthambhore National Park, a tiger reserve, in Northwestern India.
Perry and several other guests wore sari, while Brand was also garbed in traditional Indian clothes. The ceremony was presided by a Christian minister and a friend of Perry’s family, reports said. Security at the resort has been tight since guests started arriving on Friday. The wedding celebration will reportedly last for six days. Perry and Brand had been engaged since January, when the British comic proposed to the American singer on New Year’s Eve in Jaipur, also in India.
Meanwhile, the celebrity wedding was not spared controversy when several people complained that noise from the party could disturb the animals in the reserve, where tigers, leopards, and hyenas, among others, are kept. The local government has reportedly created a committee that would monitor the noise level at the six-day celebration.
