Engagement Ring Bible places the estimated value at $2million dollars, which equates to around £1.4million. Recent research by money.co.uk puts the average price of an engagement ring in the UK at £7,056, which means Serena's whopping rock is 200x more expensive than most.

Besides the price tag, the Reddit founder chose well when it came to Serena's dazzling ring as it is comprised of one very large oval-cut centre stone and flanked by two smaller semi-circle stones.

The Beauty and the Beast theme was marked by Serena's princess dress, the fairytale décor and the couple's first dance to Tale as Old as Time.

The 200-strong guest list included a whole host of A-list names like Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Kelly Rowland and Vogue's Anna Wintour.

The couple had a Disney-inspired wedding day

They picked 16 November as their wedding date as a tribute to the groom's mother, who passed away nine years prior. Speaking to HELLO! at the time, Serena explained: "It is her birthday, and we wanted her to be represented at the wedding. Obviously, we wish that she could be here for this, but choosing her birthday as our wedding date was a nice way of making sure she’s still involved and made us feel more connected to her on our day."
