Katy Perry wants to get married in a church, femalefirst.co.uk reports.


The singer — whose parents Mary and Keith Hudson are both Christian pastors — reportedly told her fiancé, British comedian Russell Brand, she wanted to tie the knot at a location close to her Los Angeles home, but turned down his suggestion of a recording studio at the Sunset Marquis hotel.


“Russell has been visiting the hotel for years and it is steeped in rock ’n’ roll history,” a source told the Daily Mirror newspaper.


“It’s in the middle of West Hollywood, but it has beautiful gardens and you feel like you are in some kind of tranquil paradise.


“Katy was keen, but when it was suggested they could have their blessing in one of the recording studios, she put her foot down.”

Although his request was rejected, 34-year-old Russell — who originally wanted to marry in India, where they got engaged on New Year’s Eve — was not too upset and has told Katy, 25, he is willing to go along with her ideas for her dream day.
