Is This The Most Lavish Wedding EVER? Son Of The World's Richest Black Woman Folarin One Of Folorunsho Alakija's Four Sons, Married Iranian Beauty Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifa At Blenheim Palace London - Had One Million Roses & Surprise Performance From Robin Thicke

The stunning bride, who has worked as a model, changed outfits for the reception and the pair were seen enjoying their first dance as man and wife in the lavish surroundings 
His mother is one of the richest women in the world so it's little surprise that Folarin Alakija's wedding was a fairytale affair. 
Folarin, who is one of oil tycoon Folorunsho Alakija's four sons, married Iranian beauty Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifar in a lavish bash at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire over the weekend.
No expense was spared as the father-of-one, who lost his first wife to cancer, tied the knot to his stunning wife in front of friends, family and celebrities, including Victoria's Secret Angel, Shanina Shaik.

Folarin, an entrepreneur, investor and cinematographer, is the son of Nigerian oil tycoon Folorunsho Alakija, 66, who is the richest black woman in the world with an estimated fortune of $2.1 billion.
Forbes rank her as the 14th richest woman in Africa and she is number 80 on its Power Women list; she overtook Oprah Winfrey as the richest woman of African descent in the world in 2014.

According to the venue's website, the cost of hiring the whole venue is on application but hiring just the palace and state rooms costs £33,000. 
The Woodstock venue, which is the ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill, was kitted out with one million white roses.  
Known for his floral arrangements and elaborate decorating of the Kardashian's homes, it was no surprise that Jeff Leatham was in charge of the flowers.
The lavish bash was attending by the most glamorous society guests and their Nigerian friends and family who flew over

Bringing over 30 staff members to the UK for the ceremony, he was not only working with copious amounts of roses but white orchids as well. 
Jeff, who can command up to £250,000 for flowers, has worked for Madonna, Oprah and Tina Turner. He was also the man behind the flowers at Eva Longoria and Tony Parker’s wedding.
Guests were also treated to a surprise performance from Blurred Lines singer Robin Thicke, who reportedly costs around £150,000 to hire, as well as a magnificent firework display in the hotel grounds later in the evening.

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. The happy newlyweds are pictured walking down the aisle after tying the knot

 The event was planned by Sade Awe of The Bridal Circle. Sade’s impeccable taste and selective eye for the exquisite make her a trusted resource for an elite clientele
