Most expensive wedding
Vanisha Mittal and Amit Bhatia
55000000 US dollar(s)
France (Versailles)

The wedding of Vanisha Mittal, daughter of billionaire Lakshmi Mittal, to investment banker Amit Bhatia was the most expensive wedding in the world. The six-day event, held in Versailles in 2004, included a re-enactment of the happy couple’s courtship and an engagement ceremony at the Palace of Versailles — the only private function ever to have been held in the palace. Guests at the wedding reception were entertained by a number of world famous performers, including Shah Rukh Khan and Kylie Minogue. And the bill picked up by the bride's father? A mere $55 million (then over £28 million).
