Actress Elizabeth Hurley, Indian Businessman Wed

British actress Elizabeth Hurley and Indian businessman Arun Nayar hosted a lavish wedding celebration Saturday at a castle in western England.

Local county officials have confirmed that the couple secretly wed Friday in a private ceremony at Sudeley Castle.

Spectators descended upon the area in hopes of catching a glimpse of the party's celebrity guests.

British tabloid reports say the couple will next travel to Rajasthan, India, for traditional Indian wedding festivities.

Hurley is a British model and actress, perhaps best known for her role in two "Austin Powers" comedies. She also had a highly publicized long-term romance with movie star Hugh Grant.

Nayar is a wealthy businessman and heir to a fortune from his family's textile company in Mumbai. He was previously married to an Italian fashion model.

It is the first marriage for Hurley, who has a four-year-old son from a previous relationship.
