Although Russell Brand and Katy Perry’s marriage existed for only 14 months long, fans across the globe celebrated their togetherness. The former couple also enjoyed a lot of romance, which started when they met at a music award show that Russell hosted and Perry performed there. After nine months when they both visited India, Russell proposed to Katy on New Year’s Eve in front of Taj Mahal.

The couple got married after a year in a lavish fashion in Rajasthan near the Ranthambhore tiger sanctuary. Inspired by the majestic countryside of northern India, the marriage ceremony reportedly had 21 camels, elephants, and horses, which included in Russell’s wedding procession. Their reception took place at Taj Rambagh Palace with the theme ‘East meets West’
3. Their couple tattoos in Sanskirt:
Rusell and Katy Perry both got matching tattoos on the inside of their respective right arms and that too in Sanskrit. The tattoo read Anuugacchati Pravaha which meant ‘go with the flow’.
