Sean Parker, the first president of Facebook, has married his singer girlfriend in one of Silicon Valley’s most extravagant weddings.

The nuptials, which reportedly cost $9m, took place in the coastal retreat of Big Sur, California in front of 300 guests.

Parker, 33, had been rumoured to be planning a themed event, based on the television series ‘Game of Thrones’, for his wedding to Alexandra Lenas.

However, before the ceremony he said: “Sorry to disappoint, but the wardrobe we’re giving guests is essentially modern. No swords or chain mail. This is not a ‘theme’ wedding.”

The scene did reportedly resemble a Hollywood set with landscapers spending weeks building fake waterfalls, ruins and backdrops, and a $600,000 stone gate.

According to People magazine, a temporary dance floor reportedly cost $350,000, and the bill for flowers and plants came to $1m.

The couple’s infant daughter Winter Victoria and the guests were dressed by Oscar-winning costume designer Ngila Dickson, known for her work in movie, ‘The Lord of the Rings’.

Parker’s representative described it as a “romantic, magical setting.” Forbes has estimated the wealth of Parker at $2bn.

Parker co-founded Napster in 1999, which allowed users to share files, often music, with each other over the internet. It closed in 2001 after running into legal problems regarding copyright infringement.
