Socialite Steals the Wedding Spotlight

She may not have a hit reality show on E! or be married to the future King of England, but Petra Ecclestone may have just stolen the spotlight with the best wedding ever.
The British heiress to the billion dollar Formula One fortune recently wed her "independently wealthy" beau of four years, James Stunt, in a jaw dropping ceremony that reportedly cost $5 to $7 million dollars. The couple tied the knot in Italy at Castello Orsini-Odescalchi, the mega castle where Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes married, and pulled no stops when it came to the extravagant details, including the 6500 dollar champagne-- per bottle.
Check the video after the jump to see what a 5 million dollar wedding will get you.

- Ceremony at the 15th-century castle, Castello Orsini-Odescalchi ($500,000 to rent)
- 350 guests including Alicia Keys, Paris Hilton, and British royalty
- Guests greeted by 18-piece string section from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
