12 MARCH 2007

Nine days after becoming Mr and Mrs, Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar have left India for their honeymoon in the Maldives. On Saturday the couple bade a fond farewell to Jodhpur, which had hosted their spectacular Indian nuptials. Crowds of well-wishers gathered at the city's airport to give the newlyweds and Elizabeth's son Damian a warm send-off as they headed to Mumbai for one last dinner party.

The swimwear designer and Estee Lauder model, who made a colourful impression in her bright yellow sundress, was still sporting intricate henna designs on her hands and feet. And her four-year-old son was also dressed in vibrant style in a traditional orange ensemble. Despite a week of celebrations that lasted well into the early hours most days, the trio looked relaxed and remarkable fresh-faced.

Elizabeth and her new husband will, however, no doubt be looking forward to some down-time on their honeymoon when they can look back on the festivities that began English-style at Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire and ended in a lavish banquet at the majestic Meherangarh Fort overlooking Jodhpur.
