Liz Hurley and new husband Arun Nayar arrived in India yesterday for the next stage of their lavish wedding celebrations. The couple - who tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Gloucestershire on Friday - flew to Mumbai for a traditional Indian ceremony. Liz, 41, and Arun, 42, are expected to attend a formal black-tie party tonight, hosted by Indian socialite Parmeshwar Godrej, before travelling to Jodphur tomorrow where festivities will continue at the Mehrangarh Fort. A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "There will be Bollywood songs and dancing. The men will be in formal dress and change into traditional costume for the wedding after that."
Liz will be 'cleansed' with a turmeric, milk and cream paste before the wedding. Arun will arrive on a white horse, and the couple will walk around a sacred fire seven times. Guests include Sir Elton John, Janet Street Porter and Liz's ex Hugh Grant - who did not attend the low-key civil service in England on Friday.
Liz, who wore a white Versace wedding dress for the English ceremony, will wear outfits created by Indian designer Rohit Bal in India. Bal revealed Liz will change her clothes at least three times a day during her stay. He said: "It's not every day you get married - and it's not every day you get married to Liz Hurley."
