Folarin & Naza Alakija's White Wedding: Huge Amount Of Money Spent (Photos) by ObiOmaMu: 2:28pm On Jun 12, 2017
Last weekend in England, Folarin & Naza's Alakija's white wedding was celebrated with a lavish bash at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

Their story has made it to DailyMail and 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 also revealed.

Folarin’s mum, Folorunsho Alakija is one of the richest black woman 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).

Prices start at £300 per tier and Elizabeth's clients include British, European and Middle Eastern Royalty, celebrities and high net worth individuals.

With eight tiers on their cake, the base price Folarin & Naza would have paid for their magnificent cake would be around £2,400 (N1.1million) - and that's excluding the elaborate iced flowers and doves.

Guests at the wedding were also treated to a surprise performance from Blurred Lines singer Robin Thicke, who reportedly costs around £150,000(N68.2million) to hire.

Apart from the magnificent firework display in the hotel grounds later in the evening,  the A-list guestlist included amongst many, Victoria's Secret Angel, Shanina Shaik.
The cake, which was adorned with hundreds of roses and ornate doves, was created by Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium.

Father-of-one Folarin Alakija is an entrepreneur, investor and cinematographer who lost his first wife to cancer.

Folarin's new wife studied Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Manchester, has a graduate Diploma in Law and has also worked as a model and marketing consultant.

She stunned in a traditional strapless white gown with lace embellishment as she was walked down the aisle by her father. She accessorised her look with a dazzling diamond necklace and white Manolo Blahniks.

She later changed into a racier, floor length white gown with sheer panelling. She let her hair down as she danced the night away with her new husband and glamorous wedding guests.

The pair became engaged last year and had a traditional Nigerian wedding in Lagos in November.

Forbes ranked Mrs Folorunsho Alakija as the 14th richest woman in Africa and number 80 on its Power Women list; she overtook Oprah Winfrey as the richest woman of African descent in the world in 2014.

Wow bawo ? Happy for the couple but it's still not clear how this woman from being a fashion designer got oil blocks. I'm not hating but we can't move forward unless we start asking serious questions about suspicious activities in the oil industry that have enriched the likes of Danjuma,Ndimi,tonye Cole,igho sanomi,kola aluko,otedola,ifeanyi ubah ,alakija and so many others.

I weep for Nigeria ........Nigeria really a jungle and it sad to watch

Imagine if this oil block was done probably , opened as a company and employed hardworking Nigerians ..... There would be less unemployed people in the street and More talents could have been developed within the company leading to growth and enhancement in Nigeria


Instead one family is milking what was natural blessed to Nigerians, offcourse spending it Abroad and yet we clap hand and glorify this nonsense
