Everybody loves a good wedding and Barcelona is certainly getting excited to lap up the luxury this weekend to host the most expensively luxurious wedding of its history.
The Mittal dynasty is arriving this week for a fiesta filled weekend in Barcelona. Curiosity is rife in the Catalan capital as the “Top Secret” stamp has been put on everything! It is still unsure who is getting married, from the family of Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal, as at the request of the family, the celebration is private.
The budget for the wedding is unknown, but lavish it will be for sure as the Mittal family is known to spend big on this type of event. In 2004, Lakshmi Mittal spent a whopping $65 million on his daughter Vanisha’s 5 day wedding in Versailles, France, which included a 3 song mini concert by Australian pop star Kylie Minogue.
Nearly a thousand guests are expected to descend on Barcelona, to join the lavish 3 day celebrations, from the 6th to the 8th of December. The size of the event is so big that the Town Council, Barcelona tourist Board and the Cambra de Comerç are collaborating in the organization of this monumental wedding. Rooms have been booked in the most luxurious of the city’s hotels, like the Hotel Arts and the W (the sail), the limousines are firing up their engines and the finest restaurants have been reserved.
As the “Top Secret” sign has been stamped all over this wedding it is no surprise that the location of the main ceremony is still a mystery. Although, what is almost definite is that there will be festivities, over the 3 days, at the Maritime Museum, the Italian Pavilion of Montjüic and at one of Gaudi´s works – the old Hospital de Sant Pau. The wedding reception will most likely be held in the oval room of MNAC – Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya (which has a capacity of 1.500 people).
