Comedian Russell Brand and pop star Katy Perry have been married in north western India, the couple confirmed in a statement.

A Christian minister and long-time friend of Perry's family performed a "private and spiritual ceremony", which was attended by family members and close friends, said the statement released by the couple's representatives.

"The backdrop was the inspirational and majestic countryside of Northern India," said the statement, which did not provide any further details on the ceremony.

The wedding was held at the Aman-e-Khas luxury resort in a tiger reserve in Ranthambhore National Park, a hotel official said on condition of anonymity.

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 were allowed into the resort.

The wedding venue was lit with lamps, colourful lights illuminated the trees and flower garlands festooned the luxury tents at the resort, the hotel official said.

Both Brand and Perry wore traditional Indian clothes to the wedding, the hotel official said.

Perry donned a sari, as did a number of other female guests at the ceremony. Yesterday, at a prenuptial celebration, Perry, like a typical Indian bride, had henna designs applied on her palms and hands.
