Russian couple marry in one of the most expensive ceremonies ever

A Russian oil tycoon gave out his daughter's hand in marriage in a grand, opulent ceremony held in Moscow.

This Russian is one of the most expensive ever

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.

According to Daily Mail UK, The layered gown was made with silver embroidery, organza petals, and hundreds of pearls and Swarovski crystals.

Guests convened for the wedding reception at the Radisson Royal Congress Park hotel in Moscow, Russia.

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.

A remarkable white cake of up to 10 feet, made by celebrity cake maker and former boxer Renat Agzamov, was brought in to celebrate the union.

An estimate of the money spent for the reception alone, according to Life! is said to be £388,000.

Prior to the wedding itself, the bride and her friends flew to Spain on a private jet for her hen party.

Add that to the cake, the dress, the venue of the wedding and this surely paints the picture of one of the most glamorous weddings ever.
