Dubai-based Indian millionaire Yogesh Mehta’s only son, Rohan Mehta, wed his British-born bride Roshni in the Italian city of Florence in a lavish three-day ceremony, which is estimated to have cost a whopping 14 million pounds, according to a report on dailymail.com.

Yogesh Mehta, who established the Petrochem empire in Dubai in 1995, is listed as one of the top 50 richest Indians in the Gulf countries in 2015.

He moved to the Middle East at the age of 29 with no job or business plan, and is believed to have amassed a wealth of around $623 million, according to the report.

The groom’s father called the event a “magical RORO wedding,” after the names of the couple, in a post on his Twitter account before the ceremony.

The nuptials were attended by more than 500 guests from all over the world, who were put up in luxury hotels around Florence for the extravagant affair.

The only hiccup in this dream wedding: The groom wasn’t allowed to make his grand entry on an elephant. According to local media, the Florence City Council turned down the request on health and safety and animal welfare concerns.

La Nazione, a leading local newspaper, called it a “stellar wedding” that “moves the GDP of Florence.” Wedding planners from India and Italy were involved in the preparations, it reported.

The London-born bride, who owns a fashion business, was adorned in traditional Indian finery, while the groom sported sherwanis during the many functions, which included ‘mehndi’ and ‘sangeet’ at different locations in Florence. The reception was held in the grand estate of Villa Le Corti in San Casciano.
