New Delhi: After their big fat Indian wedding, popstar Katy Perry and British actor Russell Brand will let their hair down in a `East meets West` themed reception which will see performances by rap mogul P Diddy and Indian classical dancers.

The A-list couple will tie the knot in a Hindu ceremony at the luxurious Aman-i-Khas resort in Ranthambore and the gala reception will take place on Sunday at the Rambagh Palace hotel in Jaipur, according to sources.

Another highlight of the event will be a special performance by celebrated choreographer Sandip Soparrkar and his supermodel wife Jesse Randhawa.

"Sandip and Jesse had performed at Madonna`s birthday and everyone loved it. So there will be a special performance by them. The piece will combine Kathak and Bharatnatyam with Tango and Paso doble," said the source.

The couple`s nuptials will have all the elements of a big fat Indian wedding, band, `baraat` (wedding procession) and fireworks.

Perry, 25 got engaged to the `Arthur` star in Jaipur over New Year`s eve and decided to tie the knot Indian style.

The bride and groom will don Indian finery for their big day and Perry was photographed at the airport wearing a traditional Indian `nath` (nosepin).

The British comedian will ride a bedecked horse, escorted by a procession of elephants and dancers.

"The procession will start at the gate of the hotel, with the bridegroom sitting on a beautifully decorated horse that is escorted by camels and elephants.

"Folk dancers then welcome the couple with a traditional routine, fireworks and a special buggi (horse-driven cart) ushering them into the main garden for the wedding," said the source.

After getting married in India, the couple will still need to have a civil ceremony in the US for their union to be recognised there.

The guests includes the who`s who of Hollywood, including Perry`s best friend, pop princess Rihanna.

While the `Rude Boy` hitmaker has revealed that she will wear a Stella McCartney creation, many of the invited friends and family will be decked up in Indian fashion with henna tattoos and bindis.
