            On Saturday, October 23, Katy Perry, 26 years old, and Russell Brand, 35 yeas old, exchanged vows. Perry and Brand are both widely known throughout the entertainment business. Perry is best known for her music and image. Some of her more popular songs consist of “I Kissed a Girl” and “Hot n’ Cold.” Brand, on the other hand, is a comedian and actor. Brand has appeared in movies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek. The two celebrities began dating in September of 2009, and have been engaged since New Year’s Eve of that same year.

            As the wedding date began to creep closer and closer, Perry became worried. The couple was spending a lot of time apart due to their busy lives. Brand was spending 14 hours a day working on a movie set, and Perry was in Europe and Australia working on other things.  “It’s been really bad timing for the couple. With only a few weeks to go until the big day, they have been spending more time apart than ever before,” a source told Daily Mirror, a UK newspaper. Perry came up with an organized plan for the two to communicate. They would each call their therapist and speak to one another for about an hour at a time.

            The couple’s wedding was set to be held at a luxury resort in India. The two wanted to have a traditional Indian-themed wedding. However, Hindu leaders feared that the celebrities would fail to take the rituals of the ceremony seriously. The President of the Universal Society of Hinduism stated that marriage is among the most vital sacraments. He claimed that the couple would be an example of worship and participation in the social and cultural arts.

            As the day of the wedding arrived, Perry and Brand made their last preparations before walking down the aisle. As part of Hindu tradition, Brand later arrived riding upon the back of an elephant to where the wedding was to be held. According to the Us Weekly reporters, Perry made her way down the aisle in a dove gray Elie Saab gown.

            On Monday, the couple boarded a helicopter to make their way to the Maldives for their honeymoon. The two began their trip by going to the Ranthambhore National Park, where the helicopter was located. They were then flown to the city of Jaipur where their chartered flight awaited them.

            The Maldives is a group of tiny “coral” islands in the Indian Ocean known for its high-end resorts. The two celebrities set out to enjoy a week of down time and peace before returning to the real world.
