It's believed that hiring the Oxfordshire stately home, which is the main residence of the Duke of Marlborough, would have cost £150,000. And when it came to decorating the historic venue, no expense was spared.

Wedding pictures shared on social media by guests (including Victoria's Secret Angel Shanina Shaik) showed the couple during their first dance on a marble floor covered with their initials in gold.

Celebrity florist Jeff Leatham took charge of the flowers and transformed the palace into a 'white wedding.' Leatham, the artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, reportedly arranged one million white blooms around the venue.

As for the wedding cake? Made by luxury designer Elizabeth's Cake Emporium, it measured 12-feet tall and didn't look like much of a cake at all; it was completely covered in white flowers.

To end the evening, there was even a performance from Robin Thicke followed by a fireworks display.

As for Nazanin's dress, she chose a a strapless white gown adorned with lace during the day, but is said to have changed into a party dress in the evening.

Commenting on the cost of the occasion, Bridebook.co.uk's founder, Hamish Shephard, told Harper's Bazaar: "Venue hire would likely be up to £150,000 with the bespoke marquee with marble floor and production around £200,000 on top. The spectacular endless flowers by Jeff Leatham are likely to have cost at least £200,000. With food and drink, Robin Thicke (at £150,000) and all the other items for the big day, including the dress, on top, the wedding will have no doubt cost more than £1million and potentially several million more."

My queen 👑 such a beautiful day celebrating the love of these two 💗 #floandnaza #weddingday
