Katy Perry and Russell Brand were married Saturday in India, and we have details of the exotic, fairytale wedding!
An ET source on the ground reports that the high-profile pair chose to ditch the Hollywood glamour and exchanged vows in a traditional Hindu ceremony at the Aman-i-Khas resort in the heart of Rajasthan’s countryside.
The wedding reportedly began at approximately 7 p.m. with the singer and her movie-star hubby-to-be in two separate camps. Tabla drum and sitar players entertained guests before Russell entered in grand style on an elephant (in a traditional wedding procession called a baraat).
At 8:15 p.m. loud cheers and claps could be heard, and then guests reportedly danced under a brightly colored tent erected inside the resort, with trees draped with fairy lights. Earlier in the day, sound tests could be heard blaring a mix of classical, Indian and pop music. A doctor was also reportedly called to the camp after one of the guests, rumored to be Katy herself, fell sick.
Security was stepped up for the event, especially since Russell's bodyguards reportedly got into a fight with local photographers on Friday. Guards were stationed 10 meters apart around the mud wall perimeter and police were spotted guarding the neighboring fields.
