Most Expensive Wedding Ever?

There is a lot to be said for making a wedding a lavish affair, certainly it should be a day to remember for the rest of your lives together, but $3 million on one day? It certainly is making an event something extra special. The wedding that took place in December is now the most expensive wedding ever held in Australia.

The location of the couple’s special day was Crown casino, which is known in Australia for being THE place to hold a party, and the wedding of Dr Geoffrey Edelstein and Brynne Gordon was no exception. With a price tag thought to be in the region of $3 million dollars, it was a wedding day for royalty. The guests totaled 550 and many of them are the biggest names around in football, television, movies and perhaps even online poker. The wedding was hosted by actress Fran Dreisher and actor Jason Alexander.

Crown Casino is located in Melbourne on the south bank of the Yarra River. The casino attracts around 16 million guests every year and this makes the location the biggest casino in Australia. The casino opened in 1994 and has been famed from the start of its existence when Rachel Griffiths streaked through the casino on opening night!

The bride may have looked a bit baffled with the many faces that she didn’t know in the guest crowd, she told reporters that she only actually knew about twenty of the guests! The groom is the former owner of an AFL team, a doctor and one of the richest men in Australia. The Groom, at sixty six years old, was all smiles as his gorgeous bride, twenty six, walked down the aisle in an ivory gown and dripping in over half a million dollars of diamonds. The Crown Casino has seen its share of public events and it is noted for making dreams come true, but this weekend will stand out as one of the most extravagant marital ceremonies ever in OZ.

Let’s hope that the groom, if he’s a poker man, gets rakeback from his online game to ensure a return on at least one of his favourite ways to spend his fortune!
