On one hand, SEVEN days of celebration for a wedding seems like a bit much, but that’s what Katy Perry and Russell Brand reportedly have planned. I guess if guests have to fly all the way to India for the wedding, you need to make it worth the trip!
People.com has some details about what their wedding guests have been doing, from visits to a wild life sanctuary to shopping in a bazaar.
Though the area is known for its tiger population, according to one wildlife guard, the group who went out early Thursday morning (which did not include the singer, 25, or the actor, 35) “saw baby deer, spotted deer, blue bulls, jackals, and jungle cats.” Still, the source says, “They were thrilled.”
Thursday, a small bazaar was set up inside the resort – an Indian wedding tradition – where guests could buy textiles, jewelry and Indian handicrafts, or have their fortune told – by a parrot. (He picks a card based on the Indian cosmic system.)
That evening the guests were entertained by 40 folk musicians and dancers.
“Everyone was relaxing by the pool and drinking and eating Indian snacks while we performed,” said Lalit Tiwari, who had brought the troupe into Ranthambhore from New Delhi. “Towards the end, some of them came towards the stage and started dancing during the ‘bhangra’ (an energetic dance from the rural area of Punjab).”
And that was just Thursday! On Friday, Katy and Russell joined their guests for a safari, and last night they reportedly held a mehndi ceremony: an Indian pre-wedding ritual.
It sounds like this will be a memorable occasion for everyone :). In the thumbnails are pictures of Katy’s parents enjoying camel rides on the safari.
