Our top pick of the most expensive weddings ever

David and Victoria Beckham

Estimated cost: £525,000 in 1999

Wedding dress: Victoria looked like the queen of her castle, wearing a champagne-coloured silk ivory strapless Vera Wang gown with a 20-foot train and a gold diamond-encrusted crown fit for a queen. 

The wedding: Football ace David Beckham wed former Spice Girl Victoria Adams at Luttrellstown Castle near Dublin in July 1999. The duo played the part of king and queen, sitting on gilded red velvet thrones in the castle where they chose to celebrate their nuptials, and later spending their wedding night in the royal suite of Luttrellstown Castle.  The 250 guests - instructed to wear black or white - were greeted by trumpeters and entertained by Elton John. The fairytale wedding was completed at the end of the night with a fireworks display.
