Sultan of Brunei's son celebrates wedding with mind-boggling splendour

It was a wedding like no other and nothing less than you'd expect for the son of one of the world's richest men.

The son of the Sultan of Brunei was married to Dayangku Raabi'atul 'Adawiyyah Pengiran Haji Bolkiah in a spectacular ceremony at the monarch's 1,788-room palace in Brunei's capital, Bandar Seri Begawan.

Friends, family, royals and dignitaries attend the breathtakingly lavish nuptials of the crown Prince Abdul Malik, 31, as he and his 22-year-old bride-to-be, exchanged vows.

The wedding festivities, which began on 5 April, were to culminate in the 'bersanding' or enthronement ceremony, which is considered a highlight of the grand occasion.

The bride and groom were seated next to each other on gilded thrones in the Throne Chamber of the Istana Nural Iman palace for the ceremony.

The grandeur of the occasion was reflected in every inch of the opulent setting as well as the couple's traditional wedding attire.

The royals wore matching gold outfits, bedecked in diamonds and jewels. The bride, who worked as a systems data analyst and IT instructor, sported a diamond tiara studded with six teardrop-shaped emeralds. Her bouquet was made of dazzling gems, rather than flowers and her ornate veil was made of delicate gold embroidered lace.

She was adorned with jewellery, from head-to-toe, including a diamond necklace with a central pendant of three emeralds and a matching brooch of emeralds in a diamond setting. Even her Christian Louboutin heels were encrusted with Swarovski crystals, off-set by a solid gold ankle bracelet.
