The couple tied the knot on Saturday (23.10.10) at the luxury Aman-i-Khas resort in Rajasthan, India, located near the Ranthambore National Park and the ceremony was performed by a friend of Katy's Christian minister parents, Keith and Mary Hudson.
A statement released by the newlyweds said: "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.
