Is Folarin And Nazanin’s Wedding The Most Lavish Wedding Ever?

With a surprise performance from Robin Thickle, 1 million live roses and a 12 feet cake decorated with ornate white roses, Folarin Alakija and  Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifa’s wedding might just be one of the most, if not the most lavish wedding ever.

Folarin Alakija, who is the son of Folorunsho Alakija, the richest black woman in the world, married Iranian beauty Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifar in a lavish bash at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire over the weekend

His mother, Folorunsho Alakija, being the richest black woman in the world, spared no expenses as their extravagant bash was held at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire over the weekend, which is estimated to have cost around £5m.

Wedding planners believe the Woodstock venue, which is the ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill, 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 on top. Pop star Robin Thicke comes at an estimated cost of £150,000.

Elaine Coles was the celebrant who performed the ceremony. Elaine, of UK Ceremonies, told MailOnline: 'It was a pleasure to hand write a bespoke and personalised ceremony for the couple'

Searcys are the approved caterer for the Orangery at Blenheim palace and three course meals start at £52 per head – excluding alcohol – but it’s believed they had a much more expensive bespoke package with catering company, rhubarb.

The breathtaking flowers were the work of Jeff Leatham, who is known for his elaborate decorating of the Kardashian’s homes.

Bringing over 30 staff members to the UK for the ceremony, Jeff adorned every inch of the venue with copious amounts of roses and white orchids.

 The event was planned by Sade Awe of The Bridal Circle. Sade’s impeccable taste and selective eye for the exquisite make her a trusted resource for an elite clientele

All the other items for the big day, including the dress, on top, the wedding will have no doubt cost more than £1million and potentially several million more.

The lavish bash was attending by the most glamorous society guests and their Nigerian friends and family who flew over

Folarin makes his money as an entrepreneur, investor and cinematographer and his wife is a model.

The father-of-one is in his late 30s and lost his first wife to cancer.
