Isha Ambani, daughter of India’s richest man, Mukesh Ambani, chair of multinational conglomerate Reliance Industries, weds businessman Anand Priamal on Wednesday at the Ambani residence in Mumbai, India.
Guests started to arrive on Saturday for Ambani-Piramal wedding via family owned private jets.
But that was just the beginning.
On Sunday, the festivities began with a private 45 minute performance from Beyonce. Which reportedly cost 2 million dollars.
Guests includes Bollywood superstars, the Clintons, John Kerry, Ariana Huffington, and newlyweds Priyanka and Nick Jonas. Indian steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar and newlyweds, actress Deepika Padukone and actor Ranveer Singh, 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch and Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih, and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were all in attendance for the Sangeet.
Unlike Priyanka who had a traditional Indian wedding which included: Mehendi (a traditional bridal henna ceremony), Sangeet (a night of dancing and music), traditional Hindu and Christian weddings, and a traditional reception.
However, according to Harpers Bazaar, “The Ambanis, however, had an app built. Yes, an app. Guests have been instructed to consult it if and when they have any questions regarding the week of events, their locations, or their dress code–like where to be and what to wear to the couple’s Sangeet full of Bollywood and Beyoncé performances at the Oberoi Udaivilas this past Sunday night.”
There has been much talk about how much this lavish wedding would cost. According to Bloomberg, “There have been a wide range of figures for how much the week-long extravaganza will cost. People familiar with the planning estimated the expense at about $100 million, while a person close to the family said the amount is not more than $15 million. The people asked not to be identified speaking on a private matter.”
