Millions of quids worth of flowers, thousands of bottles of Cristal and a busload of nannies are par for the course at a celebrity wedding. Check out the five most extravagant nuptials of recent times.
1. Petra Ecclestone
Music can make or break a wedding so we’re sure Petra Ecclestone’s nuptials to James Stunt in 2011 was stadium-worthy. Billionaire Dad Bernie hired Andrea Bocelli, The Black Eyes Peas and DJ David Guetta for the three-day celebration with a total price tag of £12 million.

The jewellery she wore on the day was worth £160K, the cake cost £7K whilst security set dad Bill back a further £130,000. Even the porcelain portable loos weren’t cheap at 10K. Talk about spending a penny…
