A Russian bride whose father is an oil tycoon has had one of the most lavish weddings of all time after sparing no expense for the fairy tale union.
Madina Shokirova, daughter of oligarch Ilkhom Shokirov, wore a jewel-studded dress made by British designers that was worth nearly £520,000.
Around 900 guests attending the event – including family members, friends and other members of Russia’s elite – as Madina tied the knot with a man only identified as Sador.
The fancy wedding reception took place at Moscow’s luxurious Radisson Royal Congress Park hotel, which features an opulent £4,500-a-night presidential suite.
Madina – whose new husband is reportedly related to Uzbekistan’s president – looked stunning in a haute couture dress by British fashion house Ralph & Russo.
The bride chose the less prominent brand, dismissing a wedding gown from one of the leading haute couture houses of Zuhair Murad.
The gorgeous layered lacy gown was decorated with silver embroidery, organza petals, and hundreds of pearls and Swarovski crystals.
The wedding organizers also wowed everyone present with a giant nine-tier cake – around 10ft tall – made by celebrity cake maker and former boxer Renat Agzamov.
The room was decorated with fresh flowers and the bride’s father reportedly spent nearly £386,000 on entertainment alone.
Prior the wedding, Madina spent her hen party at the Spanish resort town of Marbella.
She flew in with her girlfriends on a private jet and they partied in the sun on an expensive yacht.
Despite the bride’s family trying to stay out of the media spotlight, it was reported that Ilkhom Shokirov is the owner of the most luxurious hotel located in the capital city of Tashkent in north-eastern Uzbekistan.
In addition, he owns 65 per cent of the shares in one of the largest shopping centers called Demir in Uzbekistan and a couple of hotels in western Russia’s Moscow region.
