Katy Perry gets married to Russell Brand in India

Katy Perry with new hubby Russell Brand - before they got married!

Congratulations to Katy Perry - the pop star has married her fiance Russell Brand in a private wedding in India.

The couple said they were "overjoyed" to tie the knot on Saturday in front of family and friends at a luxury hotel near a tiger sanctuary.

It's reported the event was attended by 21 camels, elephants and horses, as well as Indian dancers and musicians.

The "spiritual" ceremony was performed by a Christian minister who's an old friend of Katy's family.

The couple got engaged last New Year's Eve after Russell popped the question while they were on holiday in India.

They met at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles in September 2009, which Russell was hosting.

Birthday

The celebrations don't stop there for Katy - it's her 26th birthday on Monday and her latest single Firework is already number five in the charts, even though it's not officially released for another three weeks!
