The couple was blessed by a Hindu priest yesterday while 40 of their guests went on a tiger safari. Russell, 35, and Katy, 25, last night threw a Bollywood-style feast to kick off their four-day celebrations - with dancers, snake-charmers and fires at the luxury Aman-i-Khas resort in Rajasthan.
Insiders say Russell will arrive at the wedding on an elephant or white horse - in keeping with Hindu tradition. He will be welcomed to join the gathering, set to include celebs David Baddiel, Jonathan Ross and Rihanna, after knocking on the door with his sword.
"They are very much keeping to Indian tradition. There will be feasting and dancing. And Katy will be painted head-to-toe in henna tattoos," the Sun quoted a source as saying.
