Russell Brand Marries Longtime Girlfriend Laura Gallacher
By Elizabeth Stanton
Congrats to the newlyweds!
Comedian Russell Brand married his girlfriend, Laura Gallacher, on Saturday near their home in England. Brand announced the news on his Radio X podcast, saying, "I'm living a married life now...domestic."
The British tabloid also published photos showing a relatively small service and the beaming bride and groom. The one lavish element? A New Orleans style paddle steamer that transferred guests after the ceremony, including singer Noel Gallagher and fellow presenter Jonathan Ross.
Brand's big day comes just before his ex-wife, Katy Perry, is set to host the MTV VMAs on Sunday. The two were married in 2010, but divorced 14 months later. The split was not initially the friendliest, but in recent months, both have complimented each other.
On her Witness livestream event, Perry called Brand (and fellow ex John Mayer), "beautiful in their own right." And during an appearance on John Bishop: In Conversation With, the 41-year-old said he "still feels very warm towards" his ex.
