Our top pick of the most expensive weddings ever

Liza Minnelli and David Gest

Estimated cost: nearly £2.5million in 2002

Wedding dress: Judy Garland's daughter arrived for her fourth wedding dressed in black but once inside changed into an ivory white Bob Mackie three-quarter length gown. When the newlyweds left, her gown still wasn't visible though, hidden under a full-length white mink coat.

The wedding, which was an incredibly lavish affair and took place at Marble Collegiate Church in New York, featured best man Michael Jackson and maid of honour Elizabeth Taylor. Entertainment included a 60-piece orchestra, Tony Bennett, Stevie Wonder, and Natalie Cole.

The cake: The couple spent an estimated £500,000 on flowers and over £25,000 on cake
