Most expensive wedding yet? This lavish $1billion wedding has shut down the internet (photos)

A BILLIONAIRE oligarch threw his son the world’s most lavish wedding – with performances by J Lo, Sting and Enrique Iglesias, an £18,000 wedding dress and a fleet of Rolls-Royces.

Mikhael Gutseriev, the oil and media tycoon worth £4.3 billion ($6.2 billion), splashed out on an extravagant reception for 600 guests at a luxury Moscow restaurant.

The walls were covered in fresh flowers, there was a nine tiered cake and a spectacular fireworks display.

Held at the luxury Moscow restaurant and banqueting venue Safisa, which was dripping with fairy lights and decked with wall-to-wall fresh flowers, the wedding set a new bar for extravagance.

According to The Sun, the young bride arrived in a beaded gown with a billowing skirt by Elie Saab, whose wedding dresses range from £5,000-£18,000.

Her dress was imported from Paris and reportedly weighed 25 lbs (almost two stone) because of the huge train and heavy embellishment and the bride needed the assistance of several people to carry her train and help her walk upstairs.
Meanwhile, guests travelled to the grand nuptials in a fleet of luxury cars including Rolls Royces which were seen lined up outside the venue ahead of the ceremony.

The singer, who performed her hits If You Had My Love, Dance Again and Get Right went through several outfit changes including a black tailored suit and a bejewelled leotard – not to mention a sparkly silver jumpsuit.
