Russell Brand and Katy Perry tied the knot in on Saturday (23.10.10) at the luxury Aman-i-Khas resort in Rajasthan, India, which is located near the Ranthambore National Park. 

A representative for the newlyweds released a statement saying: “Russell Brand and Katy Perry are overjoyed to confirm that they were pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Brand on Saturday, October 23. The very private and spiritual ceremony, attended by the couples’ closest family and friends was performed by a Christian minister and long-time friend of the Hudson Family. The backdrop was the inspirational and majestic countryside of Northern India.” 

The wedding venue was decorated with lamps, colourful lights and flower garlands while two elephants named Laxmi and Mala were also part of the wedding ceremony.

 A source said: “Mala is a bit skittish and hates crowds but she managed to behave herself.

Guests are believed to include British comedian David Baddiel and his wife Morwenna Banks, although apparently Katy’s BFF, Rihanna, didn’t make the ceremony due to work commitments. However I doubt the wedding planners banked on gategrashers turning up as rumours are that the wedding was interrupted by an unexpected guest… a local tiger! The tiger has apparently killed before so it’s a good thing Guards were on call to help!

Admittedly, it may have just been Russell’s gift to Katie just popping in to make an appearance as he reportedly forked out thousands on Machli, a female Bengal tiger who lives in the Ranthambore National Park. However according to the Mail On Sunday, Russell -who chose the big cat because she is known as the “epitome of beauty” by park rangers and reminds him of his new bride – plans to leave the tiger in India and will pay for her welfare on Katy’s behalf.

The festivities are expected to continue today (25.10.10) at the five-star Taj Rambagh Palace Hotel, where rap star P.Diddy is rumoured to be performing.
