BRITISH comedian Russell Brand and singer Katy Perry traveled to the Maldives to begin their honeymoon, Us Magazine reported.
Showbiz's most celebrated pair of newlyweds headed to the Indian Ocean island for some much-needed rest and relaxation after marrying in a traditional Hindu wedding service witnessed by around 80 guests in northwestern India.
Saturday's ceremony saw Brand, 35, and Perry, 26, joined by a wedding procession of 21 camels, elephants and horses to exchange vows in front of celebrity friends including singer Rihanna and rap mogul P. Diddy.
The couple wore traditional Indian clothes and observed Hindu rituals such as walking around a sacred fire seven times while reciting Sanskrit mantras.
A day after getting hitched, they posted a message to fans on Twitter, saying, "WE DID!"
