London: After making best efforts to keep her wedding preparations under wraps and dodging the media, Katy Perry and Russell brand were spotted at the Mumbai airport yesterday. And despite all the measures taken by the bride-to-be Katy to hide her traditional Indian nose ring, the ‘nath’ was visible to one and all as the couple waited for a flight to Jaipur.

Staying at the luxury Aman-I-Khas desert "wilderness" resort, the couple is busy with their marriage celebrations. Just hours before the couple arrived, Katy’s parents, Keith and Mary Hudson, arrived at the complex where guests sleep in 600 pounds-a-night tents.

As for their celebrity guests, Jonathan Ross, David Walliams and Rihanna were due to arrive last night. Sources also claim the couple asked for a Hindu priest to bless them "in true Indian style".

There will be four days of celebrations ahead of the wedding, including a tiger safari and feast. As for Katy’s wedding dress, it’s being designed by Lebanese designer Reem Acra who is known for dressing celebs like Angelina Jolie.

Indian designer duo Falguni and Shane have also been approached by Katy’s stylist to prepare her trousseau. As for her fans, there is only one thing that Katy has asked as a wedding gift and it’s the couple’s ‘privacy’ during their wedding in India.
