Eye-popping luxury takes the cake at Guangdong wedding

The bride’s necklace was a gold statement piece worthy of Helen of Troy and her chariot was a convoy of some of the world’s most expensive luxury cars, according to wedding footage attracting interest online.

People’s Daily reported Tuesday that several kilograms of gold may have gone into making the bridal accessories on show at an extravagant wedding in Zhongshan, Guangdong, Friday night.

According to unidentified sources, the bride’s father, the retired general manager and co-founder of a water company, did not want the event to be a display of wealth but the groom insisted on a splashy wedding.

Decked in rings, bracelets and necklaces all made of gold, the bride was escorted to the hotel by a fleet of Porsche, Ferrari, Audi and Maserati sports cars.

The Zhongshan-based Lihe group has denied online rumors that the groom is the son of the group’s founder.
