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.
