Madina Shokirova, daughter of a Russian oil tycoon, Ilkhom Shokirova, recently tied the knot with her groom, Sador.

The ceremony would probably have gone unnoticed if not for the way it actually went down - it was a really glamorous affair.

Glamour, of course, comes with a price. The bride's gown alone, a heavily jewelled flowing gown, costs £517, 000 and there were 900 guests to witness her waltz across the room in the majestic dress made by British fashion house Ralph & Russo.

As if the dress and the venue of the wedding ceremony and the number of guests were not enough to thrill everyone present [and us, reading about it], there was also a huge cake to mark the occasion.
