Russian heiress ties the knot in €1.2million wedding - featuring a cake nearly as big as her dress

According to reports, no expense was spared at the lavish Moscow nuptials

A Russian teenager who reportedly once mistook famous actor Robert de Niro for a waiter and asked him to fetch her water, has tied the knot in a lavish wedding said to have cost in excess of €1.2million.

Eighteen-year-old Irina Chigirinskaya - who is the daughter of billionaire construction magnate Alexander Chigirinsky - married fiance Moris Mirelli in a lavish wedding at a glamorous Agalarov Golf and Country Club in Moscow, where it looks like no expense was spared.

The bride wore an extravagant gown, said to have been designed by popular Israeli designer Zuhair Murad.


An equally extravagant cake made for a festive focal point at the reception, with multiple tiers adorned with fresh flowers and lit up in turquoise.
