Katy Perry and Russell Brand set for a colourful Indian wedding

The couple are already in India; guests begin to arrive

American singer Katy Perry and British comedian Russell Brand are at the Aman-e-Khas luxury resort in Ranthambore, Rajasthan, for a colourful Indian wedding, which will reportedly take place on October 23 at Rambagh Palace.

Though all the details about the wedding are being kept secret, the buzz is that some of the rituals at the wedding would conform to Indian tradition. For instance, Brand will put red bangles - typical of Indian brides - on Perry’s wrists.

“Brand will produce a box of red wedding bangles, which he will wash in milk and then place on Perry’s wrists. Afterwards, there will be a band and fireworks,” according to a report in British tabloid Daily Mail.

For her wedding, Katy will wear a bridal dress designed by Lebanese designer Reem Acra. Indian jewellery designer Hanut Singh has helped in designing the wedding rings. Renowned wedding planner Mindy Weiss is reported to be hired by Perry and Brand for a perfect wedding.

Meanwhile, the guests have already started arriving in Rajasthan for the wedding. Katy’s parents and the members of her music band were the first to arrive at Jaipur and then drive for three hours to Aman-e-Khas which is close to the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. In fact, the guests will also be taken to a safari in the jungles of Ranthambore.
