Elizabeth Hurley and Arun Nayar: March 3, and March 9, 2007
Not one, not even two ceremonies would do for this couple—who had a civil ceremony in Gloucestershire with just two witnesses, followed by a large blessing party at Sunderly Castle (Elton John arrived via helicopter), and finally an Indian wedding at the Umaid Bahawan Palace in Jodhpur, India. Hurley wore Versace with a Chopard tiara for the first ceremony and a couture sari from the designer for the Indian festivities. The epic eight-day wedding reportedly cost 2.5 million, including $300,000 in private jets and $100,000 in accommodations for 300 guests—namely Valentino, Donatella Versace, and Prince Pavlos of Greece. The couple split in 2011.
