We have all gotten used to the opulent and outstanding weddings that celebrities have, but the wedding of Folorunso Alakija’s son, a Nigerian oil billionaire, surpasses every imagination. The fairytale-styled event took place at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, and the pictures are nothing short of amazing.
Folorunso Alakija, vice chair of Famfa Oil, a Nigerian oil company, is one of the richest black women in the world, with an estimated fortune of £2.1 billion ($1.68 billion). It is thus obvious that she spared no expense for the wedding of her son, Folarin Alakija, to Iranian model Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifar.
According to Daily Mail, the wedding cost around £5 million and featured a million white roses, a live performance from pop star Robin Thicke and an astonishing 12-foot cake.
