British model and actress Elizabeth Hurley has already married her fiance, Indian businessman Arun Nayar and today's star-studded event at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire would just be a "blessing," a report here claimed.

41-year-old Hurley and 42-year-old Nayar wed in a civil service at the Castle yesterday with two witnesses, the Daily Mirror claimed.

Quoting an unnamed insider, the tabloid said "They wanted their wedding alone".

Today's event has attracted massive media interest, with the couple reportedly having sold the exclusive rights for the ceremony to Hello! Magazine.

Singer Elton John, designer Donatella Versace, England soccer star David Beckham and a host of celebrities are among the invitees to the Castle, which belongs to the family of Hurley's close friend, Henry Dent-Brocklehurst.

Dent-Brocklehurst is godfather to her four-year-old son, Damian.

But the tabloid, in a front-page and two-page inside story said guests would instead be attending a glitzy party. "They wanted to enjoy their wedding night alone," it quoted an unnamed source. Only half a dozen people were present at the civil wedding.

"She lives her life in a goldfish bowl and this was a very precious moment. Now they are having a big, public blessing with all their celebrity friends."

Hurley, the former partner of British actor Hugh Grant, and Nayar are to travel to Mumbai straight after today's bash for the Indian leg of the wedding at the Umaid Bhawan palace in Jodhpur.
