To ensure she gave the newlyweds a memorable performance, the Rain On Me singer – who charges more than $1 million for private performances – showed a series of dance moves during the wedding, which took place at Villa Olmo.

The luxurious Villa Olmo was decked out for nuptials, with the large ceremony taking place outside.

Featuring a massive flower wall and floral wedding arch for the couple to stand under, suited and booted guests were filmed waiting for the couple to appear.

And later in the evening, the nuptials were rounded off with an extravagant firework display lighting up the Italian sky. 

Posing for a snap with the bride prior to the celebrations, Victoria dubbed Caroline ‘the most beautiful bride to be’.

Caroline and Alan tied the knot officially in 2020 during the early Covid-19 restrictions, with the Lake Como wedding taking place to celebrate in front of their friends and family.

Alan is one of the highest earning hedge fund managers, hitting Forbes Billionaire list at #951.

With an estimated net worth of $3.2billion (£2.6billion), the finance tycoon cofounded world leader macro trading firm Brevan Howard Asset Management.

The union with American chef Caroline is Alan’s second marriage, after divorcing ex-wife Sabine Howard in 2015.

Prior to their split, Alan welcomed four children together with the French native.

And it seems the billionaire wasn’t looking to scrimp on his glamorous nuptials, reportedly paying Lake Como council €1.3 million to close 18th-century lakeside mansion Villa Olmo for almost a month leading up to the nuptials.

The lavish venue is owned by the Como town council for the public, who occasionally offer private use for weddings.

Guests arrived to venue by speedboat, as they were snapped arriving on the Jetty.

Waving for the cameras, Victoria sported a red and yellow strapless number with a cinched waist.

She arrived alongside real estate beau Maurice Dabbah, who is dubbed one of the richest businessman in Switzerland. 

Other guests included newlyweds Pixie Lott and Oliver Cheshire – who celebrated their own wedding just two weeks ago.

Pixie sported a gorgeous teal dress in a chiffon material, adding a matching headband on her blonde locks.

She stood arm-in-arm with husband Oliver, who looked dapper in burgundy suit and bow-tie.

The guests appeared in high spirits as they arrived for the big day, laughing and chatting as the boat arrived.
