Could the union between heir to a billion-dollar empire, Folarin Alakija and Iranian model, Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifar, already be the wedding of the year? We certainly think so! Here are all the details of the couple’s lavish N2 billion wedding.
In case we didn’t say it already, it cost a ton
The marriage ceremony was held at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire over the weekend, which is estimated to have cost around £5m (an estimated N2 billion).
It was a celebrity affair
The couple tied the knot in the presence of friends, family and celebrities, including Victoria’s Secret Angel, Shanina Shaik.
They took floral decorations to a new height
The Woodstock venue, which is the ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill, was adorned with one million white roses. The florist was Jeff Leatham, who is known for his elaborate decorations, having decked out the Kardashian’s homes and Eva Longoria’s wedding, and worked for Oprah, Tina Turner and Madonna.
The wedding cake cost more than your first car
The couple’s 12-feet tall wedding cake reportedly cost £10,000, comprising eight tiers with flowers donning it.
It was top to tail bespoke
The venue was exclusively hired at a cost of £150,000, with the bespoke marquee and bespoke marble floor with their initials etched in gold costing around £200,000.
Robin Thicke was there, people
Guests were also treated to a surprise performance from singer Robin Thicke.
