The Grounds Of Sydeley Castle

A posse of photographers and scores of spectators descended Saturday on a quiet town in western England where actress Elizabeth Hurley reportedly is to marry her fiance. Media reports said Hurley, 41, and businessman Arun Nayar, 42, would tie the knot at Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe, 125 miles west of London, in front of guests including Elton John, Kate Moss and Hurley's ex, Hugh Grant. The Daily Mirror newspaper, however, reported that the pair had married Friday in front of two witnesses, and Saturday's ceremony would be a celebration of the nuptials. Security guards on Saturday patrolled the grounds of the 15th-century castle. A large tent had been erected in the grounds, and a covered walkway led from the gardens to the building. Hurley and Nayar reportedly have signed a lucrative deal with Hello! magazine for exclusive rights to images of the event. According to reports, the couple will fly to India for celebrations in Mumbai and Rajasthan next week. People in the Cotswolds town of Winchcombe cashed in yesterday as Liz Hurley celebrated her wedding to Indian businessman Arun Nayar at Sudeley Castle, Gloucestershire. Members of the toddler and baby club dressed up as brides to sell cakes in the high street. Shops put up balloons and signs to wish the newlyweds well. Security guards surrounded a marquee in the castle's grounds as celebrities, including Sir Elton John and Donatella Versace, were expected to arrive. The couple fly to India this week to continue their celebrations. Hurley's spokesman has declined to comment on the wedding reports.
