Petra Ecclestone has been given a budget of £1.3 million by her Formula One Chief father, Bernie Ecclestone for her upcoming wedding to businessman James Stunt in Italy next week.
Petra, living up to her former title as “the most spoilt girl in Britain” looks set to exceed the already high expectations for the event which is to be held at the 15th century near Rome. This sumptuous location previously hosted the marriage of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in 2006.
Rihanna had previously sung in the celebration of the couples’ engagement. For the big day itself, Eric Clapton has been hired to perform the first song for the bride and groom and the American group The Black Eyed Peas will also be providing entertainment for the night.
A further £40,000 is being spent on a midnight fireworks display on the night of the wedding, and a star studded guest list is expected be in attendance.
As extravagant as the wedding budget is, the cost isn’t likely to worry Mr. Ecclestone, whose £2.4 billion fortune has recently bought his daughter a 57,000 square foot mansion for the estimated price of around £100 million.
