Russell Brand and Katy Perry got married Saturday (Oct. 23) in India.
The "Get Him to the Greek" star and the chart-topping singer exchanged vows at the Aman-i-Khas resort near Jaipur, India -- the same place where Brand proposed to Perry last December. About 80 family members and friends were in attendance, Us Weekly reports.
Perry and Brand planned a traditional Indian ceremony for their nuptials. She was spotted wearing a bridal nose ring, which the groom removes on the wedding night, and the couple was to sit on a pair of gilded chairs during the ceremony. (Less traditional: Brand had a henna tattoo applied to his hand, a custom usually reserved for the bride.)
Depending on which reports you read, Brand, 35, was going to make his entrance on an elephant or on a horse with elephants flanking him.
Brand and Perry, 26, met on the set of "Get Him to the Greek" last year (she had a cameo in the movie that didn't make the final cut). Despite the trappings of their wedding, Brand says he wants to have a "normal" marriage.
"We just love each other and we want to get married in front of our friends and family and keep it very normal," he said at a New York Times "Times Talks" appearance recently. "It ain't about selling the pictures, it ain't about doing no pre-nup. ...
"I'm trying to preserve it, to keep it a beautiful thing. I think people get the wrong idea on how we want the wedding to play out. Love between two people is the most spectacular, yet ordinary thing in the world."
