"We just love each other and we want to get married in front of our friends and family and keep it very normal," usmagazine.com quoted Brand as saying. "It ain't about selling the pictures, it ain't about doing no pre-nup, it's just a normal thing," he added.
Insiders have revealed that the marriage will culminate in a traditional Indian ceremony in Rajasthan Oct 23. Guests will be flown out via private jets and they will sleep in "pimped out" tents.
Brand is mum on details. "I'm trying to preserve it, to keep it a beautiful thing. I think people get the wrong idea on how we want the wedding to play out. Love between two people is the most spectacular yet ordinary thing in the world," he said.
While the date of the wedding is not known, the event is expected to take place at the Rambagh Palace -- where Brand proposed to Perry over New Year.
If reports are to be believed, Brand will ride a decorated horse and get an escort of camels and elephants when he marries Perry.
