He kissed a girl - and made it official. Comedian Russell Brand and singer Katy Perry became man and wife in a traditional Indian-themed wedding over the weekend.
The quirky duo exchanged vows on Saturday night at the Aman-i-Khas luxury resort in Rajastan, India, where Brand, 35, proposed to Perry - who was born Katy Hudson and turns 26 today - last New Year's Eve.
A rep for the couple confirms to CNN, "The very private and spiritual ceremony, attended by the couples' closest family and friends, was performed by a Christian minister and longtime friend of the Hudson Family. The backdrop was the inspirational and majestic countryside of Northern India."
In keeping with tradition, Brand arrived via elephant to the wedding site, where he greeted his bride, who, Us Weekly reports, wore a dove gray Elie Saab gown.
After the newlyweds sealed the deal, cheering, chanting, and Rajasthani folk music could be heard throughout the resort, according to People.
