Last weekend in England, Folarin & Naza’s Alakija’s white wedding was celebrated with a lavish bash at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
The thousands of pounds Folarin, who is one of Mrs Folorunsho Alakija’s four sons, & his Iranian beauty wife Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifa spent to have a fairytale wedding has been revealed.
Folarin’s mum, Folorunsho Alakija is one of the richest black women in the world so it’s little surprise that Folarin Alakija’s wedding was a fairytale affair.
It has emerged that Folarin & Naza’s wedding which held at Blenheim Palace had one million roses which were done by Jeff Leatham.
Jeff commands up to £250,000 (N114million) for flowers and has worked for Madonna, Oprah and Tina Turner. Jeff was also the man behind the flowers at Eva Longoria and Tony Parker’s wedding.
The cost of hiring the whole Woodstock wedding venue, which is the ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill, is only on application but hiring just the palace and state rooms costs £33,000 (N15million).
The cake, which was adorned with hundreds of roses and ornate doves, was created by Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium.
Prices start at £300 per tier and Elizabeth’s clients include British, European and Middle Eastern Royalty, celebrities and high net worth individuals.
Guests were also serenaded with a surprise performance from Robin Thicke, a performance reported to cost about £150,000(N68.2million).
