Russian oligarch and billionaire Aleksey Shapovalov married 27-year-old model Ksenia Tsaritsina, his girlfriend of five years and the mother of his two children, in a typically lavish ceremony in Moscow last weekend.

The opulent affair took place at the prestigious Barvikha Luxury Village hotel in Rublekva, Moscow, a popular venue among wealthy Russians.

The bride wore two elaborate, and intricately designed wedding dresses on the day, and shared photos of the occasion with her 250,000+ Instagram followers.

The dress code for the event was black, white, and red, to which most of the guests adhered, with a variety of glamorous – and expensive looking – outfits.

Scroll down for a look inside the extravagant event, complete with an eight-tier floating cake and an enormous 70-carat engagement ring.


Russian oligarch Aleksey Shapovalov married 27-year-old model Ksenia Tsaritsina — long-term girlfriend and the mother of his two children — in a typically lavish ceremony at the Barvikha Luxury Village hotel in Rublekva, Moscow last weekend.


The couple have been together for five years. In April the bride posted a video of her huge engagement ring glinting in the light — which she modestly noted contained a 70-carat diamond — hinting at the opulence that was to come on the big day. The ring is rumoured to have cost more than £7 million.

The extravagant affair was thrown at the Barvikha Concert Hall, which is often hired out for high profile weddings by wealthy Russians. It also hosts big music concerts by stars such as Elton John.


The bride’s extravagant wedding dress had an off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline and was adorned with lace flowers and lots of sparkles.


She later changed into a floaty, less structured lace dress with a matching veil. She posed for a picture in the dress with Russian singer Polina Gagarina, who was one of the entertainers at the big bash.

However, if Tsaritsina’s Instagram is anything to go by, life for the couple is just as glamorous on a day-to-day basis.
