Billionaire son of Mikhail Gutseriev, a Kazakh-born oil and media tycoon, Said Gutseriev, 28, who graduated from Harrow and Oxford University, married 20-year-old Dental student Khadija Uzhakhova in Moscow this past weekend in a very lavish ceremony that reportedly cost up to $1 billion. The wedding took place at the luxury Moscow restaurant and banqueting venue Safisa, which was decked out in wall-to-wall fresh flowers.
According to Daily Mail, the wedding dress was a beaded Elie Saab gown which cost about $25,000.
Her dress was imported from Paris and reportedly weighed 25lb because of the huge train and heavy embellishment. She needed the assistance of several people to carry her train and help her walk up the stairs
Khadija’s look was completed with a diamond tiara and a huge diamond pendant around her neck.
Meanwhile, the father of the groom personally received all 600 guests who attended the nuptials. Many guests travelled to the grand nuptials in a fleet of luxury cars including Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Maybachs etc. which were seen lined up outside the venue ahead of the ceremony.
The entertainment also did not come cheap, with Sting, Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias who all provided entertainment for the guests.
