Gorgeous couple Katy Perry and Russell Brand have married at the Ranthambore wildlife sanctuary in North Rajasthan, India, in a traditional Hindu ceremony on Saturday, October 23.
A Hindu priest conducted the ceremony, which was attended by family and close friends of the couple. (this information was given by a hotel official who wanted to remain anonymous)
Security has been stringent with private security guards stationed at the resort and other nearby hotels where guests and the couple are staying for the six-day wedding celebration.
Photographers and media reporters were not allowed into the Aman-e-Khas wildlife retreat. The couple have given the exclusive coverage rights to a London magazine, and no other photographers or journalists will be allowed into the resort.
Husband and wife both wore traditional Indian clothes. Perry donned a sari, as did a number of other female guests at the ceremony. On Friday, at a prenuptial celebration, Perry had henna designs applied on her palms and hands.
Meanwhile, a four-member committee had been set up to check noise pollution from the wedding celebration and ensure that animals in the wildlife reserve in India’s Rajasthan state are not disturbed.
The Ranthambhore National Park, where the resort is located, is home to a host of wildlife species including tigers, leopards, wild boars, hyenas and sloth bears.

Press Trust of India news agency said 21 camels, elephants and horses formed part of Brand’s wedding procession. The procession was accompanied by traditional Indian dancers and musicians.
Brand proposed to Perry in the historic Indian city of Jaipur over New Year’s Eve, and the couple decided to get married in India.
