Ex-Facebook president Sean Parker 'planning $10m medieval-themed wedding'

London, Apr 18 (ANI): The founder of Napster and former president of Facebook, Sean Parker, has planned to spend up to 10 million dollars on his 'medieval-themed' wedding, a report has said.

The 34-year-old tech mogul and his fiancee, singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas, have booked the exclusive Ventana Inn at Big Sur on the California coast for their June 1 weeding.

They have also hired a landscaping company to deck out the forested grounds around the resort with fake ruins, waterfalls, bridges, ponds and even a gated cottage, the Independent reports.

In March, the couple had sent out save-the-date cards in the style of a medieval scroll.

According to TMZ.com, guests will arrive at the ceremony through a 600,000 dollars gate, surrounded by a whopping 1 million dollars-worth of flowers and plants.

Later in the evening, they will dance on a dance-floor costing 350,000 dollars, the report said.

The bill for the backdrop alone is some 8.6 million dollars, it added.

Parker founded the controversial file-sharing service Napster with Shawn Fanning in 1999, and later became the first president of Facebook.

Now a backer for the music-streaming service Spotify, he was portrayed by Justin Timberlake in the Oscar-winning 2010 movie, The Social Network. (ANI)
