Katy Perry and Russell Brand are getting married this weekend in India!
The American pop star and British comediain are staying at a luxury resort outside the Ranthambhore tiger sanctuary in the Indian state of Rajasthan, a local tour operator said Thursday.
Their six-day celebration begins Saturday with a Hindu wedding ceremony conducted by a local priest at the Sher Bagh resort.
“This would be a colorful Rajasthan wedding, and both Brand and Perry would be attired in Indian wedding attires,” said Rajasthan Tours manager Mohan Singh, whose company is one of several involved in organizing the event.
Katy and Russell have hired 13 vehicles to take some of their 80 or so guests on tours of the wildlife sanctuary in the days after the wedding, Singh said.
The Ranthambore National Park is one of northern India’s largest sanctuaries, boasting 27 tigers as well as leopards, wild boars, hyenas and sloth bears. The sanctuary is about 80 miles southeast of the city of Jaipur, offering lakes and a 10th-century fort.
The couple will be staying in a luxury tent at the Aman-i-Khas resort which is just outside the sanctuary. Guests will be staying at the nearby Vanyavilas and Sher Bagh resorts.
Private security has already been stationed at the hotels, which have refused to discuss the event with media. Local police said they had not been informed of these weekend’s nuptials.
Katy and Russell are hoping to keep the event details secret. They sent out wedding invitations saying simply that they were getting married in India and the celebrations would last for up to a week.
Katy Perry’s Twitter page also contains a plea for privacy: “TWIT BREAK: Greatest gift you can give us is respect and love during this private time. No use wasting our time with STOLEN or FALSE info. Thank you for this.”
Well I guess there’s hope for keeping the details secret!
Congratulations to the Katy and Russell!
