Katy Perry flown in as wedding singer
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2012 -- When it comes to “happily ever after” there are many different concepts regarding the beginning of that statement. Some have small and simple dreams that lead to happiness. For others, however, happiness is found in lavishness and pomp, which can only be attained through monetary means. When you spend $3.4 million on your big day, it is safe to say you fall into the latter category.
Holly Valance is such a persona, and her wedding with husband Nick Candy was quite the spectacle.
The event was over-the-top lavish, outrageously expensive, and all can be encapsulated with the an ivory and grey J’Aton Couture gown, with cascading flow and pigeon-colored frou-frou on the hem. The piece was even complete with a 15-foot train.
Some guests were heard complaining that the dress showed a bit too much cleavage. Others remarked the dress was a bit bland and uninspired in its color choice. The cost of the dress was reported to be somewhere in the ballpark of $50,000. One would assume the train took up at least $10,000 of that price tag.
The Groom, while note dazzling in anything in particular, hired Katy Perry as the wedding singer, which fetched a cost of around $1.5 million for the 45-minute set.
The man of the day also footed a $82,000 bill for the flowers, including a bouquet of ‘black magic’ calla lilies.
The real cost, however, was felt in the celebration that followed the ceremony. Thousands of canapés, piles of sushi, and pre-parties as well as barbecues were enjoyed over a three-day festival of sorts. The groom flew in the cast of Valance’s favorite musical, Jersey Boys.
The list of guests was a mixture of A-listers and friends. Simon Cowell, Sir Elton John, as well as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie were among the larger names. Dancy Dell-Olio, Tracey Emim, Bruno Tonioli (of Strictly Come Dancing), and Philip Treacy were among the 300 invited to the event.
The event was said to cost an estimated $5 million.
