Guests arrive for Katy, Russell's wedding
Ranthambhore National Park - Guests were arriving on Saturday at a luxury resort in a tiger reserve in northwest India to attend the Indian-style wedding of British comedian Russell Brand and American pop singer Katy Perry.
More than a dozen cars were seen ferrying guests into the wildlife resort where Brand and Perry are scheduled to get married later on Saturday.
Security has been stringent with private security guards stationed at the resort and other nearby hotels where guests and the couple are staying for the six-day wedding celebration.
Photographers and media reporters were not allowed into the Aman-e-Khas wildlife retreat. The couple have given the exclusive coverage rights to a London magazine, and no other photographers or journalists will be allowed into the resort.
Meanwhile, a local administrator said a four-member committee had been set up to check noise pollution from the wedding celebration and ensure that animals in the wildlife reserve in India's Rajasthan state are not disturbed, Press Trust of India news agency said.
The Ranthambhore National Park, where the resort is located, is home to a host of wildlife species including tigers, leopards, wild boars, hyenas and sloth bears.
PTI said 21 camels, elephants and horses would form part of Brand's wedding procession from Sher Bagh, another nearby luxury resort, to the Aman-e-Khas. The procession would be accompanied by traditional Indian dancers and musicians.
Brand proposed to Perry in the historic Indian city of Jaipur over New Year's Eve, and the couple decided to get married in India.
