Katy Perry and Russell Brand have got married.

The couple tied the knot in on Saturday (23.10.10) at the luxury Aman-i-Khas resort in Rajasthan, India, which is located near the Ranthambore National Park - which is the country's leading tiger park and also home to other wildlife including leopards, deer and exotic birds.

A representative for the newlyweds released a statement saying: "Russell Brand and Katy Perry are overjoyed to confirm that they were pronounced Mr. and Mrs. Brand on Saturday, October 23. The very private and spiritual ceremony, attended by the couples' closest family and friends was performed by a Christian minister and long-time friend of the Hudson Family. The backdrop was the inspirational and majestic countryside of Northern India."

Guests are believed to include Katy's close friend Rihanna, and British comedian David Baddiel and his wife Morwenna Banks.

Heavy security guarded the location of the nuptials and local police officers surrounded the adjacent fields and the resort's walls.
