Multi-millionaire Indian heiress Shriya Bhupal is having the dreamiest wedding in France
In the beautiful town of Chantilly in Paris
This year, the bar on big fat Indian weddings is only getting higher — Shriya Bhupal, grand-daughter of businessman GVK Reddy and the brains behind the fashion brand Shriya Som, had a lavish pre-wedding masquerade ball last night, where every aspect from culture to couture was taken note of. Held at the historic Château de Chantilly in Paris, the bride-to-be picked an elegant Giambattista Valli gown that could have easily passed off as a red carpet outfit for this year’s Met Gala 2018.

India’s most expensive weddings
Vanisha Mittal married Amit Bhatia in 2004 in a bash that cost approximately Rs 240 crore. The guestlist featured Shah Rukh Khan and the actual festivities had performances by Kylie Minogue and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The wedding was the only private event to have ever been conducted at the Palais de Versailles. Steel mogul Lakshmi Mittal’s daughter Vanisha’s wedding has charted history as the second most expensive wedding in the world, and with good reason.
UK-based millionaire and secret Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani binge-watcher Sanjay Hinduja married his long-time partner, fashion designer Anu Mahtani, in Udaipur. The lavish nuptials, billed at 147 crore rupees, saw the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Scherzinger performing, while Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Preity Zinta were in the audience.
Mining baron Janardhan Reddy’s daughter Brahmani got married in a Rs 17 crore Kanjeevaram sari, wearing Rs 90 crore worth of jewels. The wedding guests received personalised wedding invites via LCD screens (that reportedly cost a whopping Rs 5 crore) and were fed in utensils crafted out of pure gold and silver.
