Amazeballs! When you have Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias perform at a wedding, you know it’s no ordinary wedding. Moscow stood still last Saturday for the World’s first billion dollar wedding between Russian energy tycoon Mikhail Gutseriev’s son Said Gutseriev(28) and his girlfriend Khadija Uzhakhovs(20). The glamourous wedding which took place on the 26th of march 2016 was said to have cost $1,000,000,000.
The groom’s father who is said to be worth $US6.2 billion made from his chains of companies in real estate and oil fields spent some eye-popping amount of money even though the couple hosted only 600 guests. Most of the guests arrived the venue in their luxury cars mostly Rolls Royce and Bentleys and were warmly welcomed by Billionaire Mr Gutseriev who gave them an exotic souvenir. The Souvenirs were gold boxes bearing the couple’s names.
They partied in the Moscow banqueting venue Safisa. The walls were decorated with fresh flowers, there were fireworks and the cake was a nine-tier pink and white cake topped with a crescent and star to symbolize their Muslim faith.
The bride’s 11kg Elie Saab haute couture creation wedding gown was imported from Paris and cost about $1 million. It had a floor-length veil and a jewel to match handbag, made of beads. The gown was said to be so heavy that the bride required assistance while walking. Her tiara is also speculated to be worth $7 million.
Enrique Iglesias performed first, followed by Jennifer Lopez whom we hear made 3 costume changes during her performance before Sting wrapped the nightt up with his ” Desert Rose”. JLo is rumoured to have been paid a whooping $1,000,000 for her private performance that likely lasted less than an hour.
Reports say that the celebration is not yet over as the Groom’s father is planning a more elaborate party, this time strictly for family and few close friends. Beyonce and John Elton are expected to grace the London occasion.
