Indian politician Gali Janardhana Reddy has sparked controversy by reportedly spending around £59 million on his daughter's wedding.

Apparently, the festivities lasted five days and involved 50,000 guests, who received gold-plated invitations. The wedding sari is estimated to be worth £2 million and the bride's jewellery at least £10 million. 

Evidence is beginning to suggest that the more lavish and expensive the wedding, the more likely a couple are to divorce, so watch this space!
