This Russian Wedding Will Leave You Speechless

Ever wondered what an elaborate (read: expensive) Russian wedding looks like?

It’s wedding season in Europe, which means plenty of #bridalinspo for those of us in Australia.

Cue the wedding – nay, the two-day spectacle – of Russian fur designer Violetta Nakhimova’s wedding.

The happy couple arrived at the ceremony – which was held at Safisa, an upmarket restaurant in Moscow – via horse-drawn carriage. Nakhimova chose a traditional dress for the occasion, covered with intricate beading and topped off with a long veil. 

If we’re being honest, the detail we are most envious of is that SIX FOOT cake. With a cake that big, we’d definitely be going back for seconds.
