Wedding planning with a multi-million pound budget takes weddings to a whole new level!
The average cost of a UK wediing is approximately £24-30’000 according to a recent survey by Brides Magazine. But if you’re the son of a billionaire Russian Oligarch then a multi-million-pound budget will do!
Yes, this weekend, Said Gutseriev, 28, married student Khadija Uxhakhovs in a truly extravagant wedding! The lavish reception was held at one of the finest restaurants in Moscow with a second celebration expected in London. The 600 guests were treated to performances by J-Lo, Sting and Enrique Inglesias – now that’s what you call musical entertainment!
The venue, Safira, was dripping in fairy lights and decorated with stunning floor to ceiling flowers.
The wedding cake featured a huge NINE tiers! Decorated with white and pink flowers, it was topped with a star and crescent moon as a show of the couple’s Muslim faith.
The Bride wore a show stopping bridal gown! Heavily beaded and with a billowing skirt and flowing train, it was designed by Elie Saab and reported to have cost close to $1 million USD!
Weighing a hefty 25lbs, it’s not surprising that the Bride needed help to carry her dress to enable her to walk and manoeuvre herself more easily. Her accessories included a matching bag, stunning diamond tiara, a large diamond drop necklace and matching diamond drop earrings!
