WINCHCOMBE, England (AP) - Elizabeth Hurley married an Indian
businessman in a private civil ceremony at a 15-century castle, and
photographers and spectators descended Saturday on this quiet town
in western England to catch a glimpse of their lavish wedding
Gloucestershire County Council confirmed that Hurley and Arun
Nayar married Friday at Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe, 125 miles
west of London. The pair planned to hold a blessing and party at
the castle later Saturday, with guests including Elton John, Kate
Moss and Hurley's ex, Hugh Grant.
Security guards on Saturday patrolled the castle grounds, set
amid the Cotswold hills of western England. A large tent had been
erected in the grounds, and a covered walkway led from the gardens
to the building.
Hurley, 41, and Nayar, 42, reportedly have signed a lucrative
deal with Hello! magazine for exclusive rights to images of the
event. Hurley made appearances in the "Austin Powers" movies and
"Bedazzled" and for several years was the international face of
Estee Lauder cosmetics.
Several shopfronts in the picturesque town were adorned with
signs and notices wishing the couple good luck.
"Obviously, people are out celebrity spotting - I don't think
they'll see any but they are out at the thought - and it's just a
lot of excitement for the small town of Winchcombe," said butcher
