Katy Perry gazes lovingly at fiancé Orlando Bloom in idyllic desert snaps as she celebrates her 35th birthday by flying 64 pals to Egypt
Katy Perry celebrated her 35th birthday in spectacular fashion by flying 64 of her closest friends to Egypt for a lavish desert getaway.
The singer marked the occasion with a fun-filled 10-day cruise down the River Nile, riding camels through the desert and enjoying the stunning sunset over the pyramids, all of which was captured in a slew of social media snaps.
Among the guests was her fiancé Orlando Bloom, 42, who took to Instagram to share several snaps from the outing including one of a romantic embrace with his wife-to-be with the stunning sunset behind him.

In Orlando’s snaps from the stunning desert break, the actor couldn’t hide his love for his beautiful wife as they gazed at one another.
Dressed in a beautiful blue mint green dress with a matching striped headband, the California Girls hitmaker looked beautiful among the jaw-dropping setting.
As Orlando also shared snaps overlooking the desert, he wrote that both Katy and his beloved mother Sonia were celebrating their birthday together.

In a poetic caption he penned: ‘It’s like looking out over the entire cosmos – Egyptian magic got my heart open to a download of love for my Scorpio’s wonder women both celebrating their #birthday.’
Meanwhile one of Katy’s pals also took to social media to post a barrage of group snaps, clearly showing the vast size of the party that jetted to Egypt to mark the hitmaker’s birthday.
The birthday clan included actress Shannon Woodward, Katy’s stylist Jamie Schneider and hubby Nico Mizrahi, alongside designer Johnny Wujek and even Bloom’s mom Sonia Copeland, according to Page Six.

In one snap Katy’s pals proudly posed in front of one of the iconic Sphinx of Giza, and wrote in an lengthy caption: ‘How to build a powerful bond in 10 days. Get 64 people hand picked by a musical goddess Katy Perry to live on a boat down the Nile with only ONE request…
‘That each of us step out of our comfort zones and for every meal sit with someone different.’
Katy celebrated her actual birthday on 25th October by enjoying a lavish dinner at the temple in Edfu, which is a city located to the West of the Nile River.
The group then finished their celebrations by riding camels through the night.

Katy and Orlando announced their engagement in February, after he popped the question on Valentine’s Day.
The songstress and the Hollywood heartthrob are planning to marry in December, according to Us Weekly, sometime after her concerts in LA and Chicago on December 6-7.
‘He’s the kindest soul. He is the kindest man I’ve ever met and he shows up and he is such an encouragement spiritually, emotionally, and physically,’ Katy said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September.
Katy and Orlando were first linked in January 2016 – rekindled their romance last year after ‘taking a respectful, loving space’ apart from each other in February 2017.
It will also be the second time down the aisle for both as Orlando divorced Australian model Miranda Kerr in 2013 and Katy divorced English comedian Russell Brand in 2012.
