Petra Ecclestone Obviously Planning “Three Day Extravaganza” Wedding

Forget William and Kate – there’s another British wedding to set your eyes on. Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of Formula 1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone, or better known as the 22-year-old who bought Candy Spelling’s house for $150 million, is getting married next month. Guess what? It’s going to be really fancy.
The Daily Mail reports that Ecclestone will marry her longtime boyfriend, a 28-year-old British businessman named James Stunt, in the Italian castle where Tom Cruise married Katie Holmes and Martin Scorsese married Isabella Rosselini. Sources say the Ecclestones will fly over 300 friends and family for the nuptials at the Odescalchi Castle, which is near Rome.
A friend of Ecclestone’s told The Daily Mail that Ecclestone is plotting “a three day extravaganza” and that she “has promised that her ceremony is going to be like something the world has never seen – ten times more lavish than Tom’s 2006 wedding to Katie.”
Wow – yes. But unexpected – no. For Ecclestone’s engagement party, Dad Bernie flew in Rihanna for a quick performance that only cost, you know, a bit over $400,000. It sounds pretty outrageous, but as a Londoner in similar circles previously told us, Ecclestone is known for being “abhorrently spoiled and not on this planet.” At least she’s living up to her reputation.
