Russell Brand and Katy Perry wed in India

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.

    I think the fact that they had a normal, private wedding without all the Hollywood trappings shows that they are going into the marriage as two level-headed people with realistic expectations. I hope they make it in the long run. The press is undoubtedly going to be hounding them.

    Carol, Its a well known fact that Gays in the US are committing suicide at an alarming rate, and that all Muslims are terrorists, all Blacks are criminals, and all Hispanics are either gardeners or drug mules.
    The only perplexing matter at hand is whether you are an idiot or a moron.

    Raj: It's a well known fact in Christian circles that Christians have often been killed in India. This just seems to be one of those stories that isn't talked about in the media because they are also antichristian.

      Have you ever met an Indian who hates christians?

      India has a thriving, secular, proud christian community. All chritian excesses (e.g. portuguese inquisition in goa, etc) are forgiven in the land of the mahatma.

      Here's hoping that you visit India.

      Carol, have you heard of 'scorched earth' war tactics? These have been used against innocent people by Christians and Muslims throughout hte ages. India has one of the most peaceful historical heritages -despite being attached by the Kubla Khans and then ruled by the British for around 200 years (where by the way, incidents of General Dyer, a Christian ordering the massacre of a peaceful rally of women, children and men were far too common), the way India got her freedom from Britian is not through violence but non-violence. In very recent times, some people have done acts which are clearly not in line with Hinduism but then this is kali yug (the 4th and last stage of life on Earth) which is to be characterized by chaos, leadership and rule by fools and tyrants (Bush and Gadaffi?), normal human beings indulging in unimaginable cruelty (Concentration camps by Nazis and the British in the Boer wars)...

      Totally agree.....what's wrong with this world that you can't simply be happy for two people. For the lot of you who made negative and somewhat childish comments – take a long look in the mirror and try to find the good in yourself and maybe you can find good in others.

    Z #15 Like Where's Waldo, where praytell are all these alleged 'intellectuals'? We live in a country of 'sheep' who are more than happy being TOLD WHAT TO DO, rather than actually engaging the grey matter that still manages to reside in the head that sits on the shoulders. The only times ppl. seem to slightly use their heads is if it involves the realllllly little one, just barely dangling btw. their legs. (NO offense to actual sheep, sweet, gentle little loves, save for the rams).

    • Really?

      Public displays of affection are considered impolite in lots of countries, not just in India. But what does this have to do with their marriage!?! Does the geographic location of a kiss determine the strength of a relationship? Just out of curiosity, what's the divorce rate in America? Not 100% sure but I think PDA is pretty big here...just saying.

      where did that come from? There is no law against that. However, Indians are very conservative about showing affection in public.

      And Carol, just visit India and then start to make comments. You make yourself look very stupid

      Goodness, she's wearing A LOT of make-up in that picture. Whenever singers get married or have children, their record sales usually drop significantly. Look at Christina Aguilera. She's trying to re-invent herself at the wrong time. Lady Gaga has already cornered the market on what Christina's trying to do. Actually, Gaga has made most pop stars completely irrelevant in terms of style and performance quality.
