Katy Perry becomes Mrs Brand in 'private ceremony'

Monday October 25, 2010

Brit comic Russell Brand has wed his American singer love Katy Perry – real name Katheryn Hudson – at a luxury resort in India.

"[The service] was performed by a Christian minister and long time friend of the Hudson Family," said a spokesman for the couple.

"The backdrop was the inspirational and majestic countryside of northern India".

Following an Indian custom, the bridegroom and his relatives went to meet Katy in a procession featuring elephants.

Russell's gift to his bride – who turns 26 on Monday – was reportedly one of the Ranthambhore sanctuary's rare female tigers.

Named Machli, she will stay in her jungle home, with the thousands paid invested in her welfare and the park's conservation projects.
