The ‘Rock of Ages’ actor ties the knot with his fiancee in an intimate ceremony and celebrates it with family and friends in an indian-themed party.
Russell Brand is married for the second time. The 42-year-old British actor/comedian exchanged wedding vows with his 30-year-old fiancee Laura Gallacher over the weekend in an intimate ceremony at Remenham Church near their home in Henley-on-Thames, Oxon.
After the intimate service at the church, the newlyweds boarded a New Orleans style paddle steamer along with the guests to an Indian-themed reception. They were joined by staff wearing saris. Russell reportedly spent almost $3,000 to rent the boat.
“They wanted a very small, personal affair, with their daughter Mabel, family and close friends rather than a circus. It was a lovely occasion. Mabel was guest of honour,” a source said.
Russell Brand and Laura Gallacher, a lifestyle blogger, have dated on and off since 2007. The couple started to get serious in 2015. Mabel, their first child, was born in November 2016.
“I feel lit up by the idea. I’m very excited about becoming a dad and I’m preparing myself,” he said of fatherhood in an interview with Evening Standard. “I am just getting ready to be with a new little person and see what it is they want.”
He gave up partying for domestic life with his new family. “It is very calm. I look at the chickens, they hatch some eggs. Basically I’m like a village idiot – just looking at livestock,” he revealed. “I’m so much happier over the course of the day to see one or two people and a few chickens, that’s a good way of living.”
Russell was previously married to U.S. singer Katy Perry. They got engaged in India and married in a Hindu ceremony in the country. He dumped her via a text message after a year of marriage. They have no child together.
