Garlands of flowers cascading from the ceilings, custom-made suede menus and boxes with personalised wax stamps made for each guest - this is the level of opulence you'd expect at Kiwi millionaire Neville Crichton's wedding.

A new series of images has emerged showing the wedding of Crichton, 71, to Nadi Hasandedic, 38, at the University of Sydney's historic Great Hall on Saturday.

Wedding planner Diane Khoury has revealed nine photographs of the event, far more lavish than many Kiwi weddings, with table floral art themed in pinks and white with accents of red.

"Keeping it romantic with gorgeous floral cascading from the piano," Khoury wrote of the metres of flowers flowing down steps and surrounded by candles inside the reception venue.

No plastic stacker chairs were in sight. Instead, reception guests were treated to luxurious cream padded high-back chairs.

Hasandedic, with a low-backed dress, appears with Crichton in two of the images.

But in another, she is bent forward, acknowledging the grandeur of the Great Hall, holding her wedding gown out on both sides.

"No words can describe the magical setting," Khoury wrote of one picture showing the reception with towering vases of flowers topped with feathery cream toetoe plumes. Flowers also cascaded off tables and onto the tiled floors.

"Nestled beneath a whimsical setting like a scene from Romeo and Juliet, was a very unique bridal table, boasting sheer elegance and romance."

The Sydney Morning Herald

reported that Hasandedic arrived at the venue with her bridesmaids in a fleet of vintage Rolls-Royces just before 4pm.

The Bosnian-born bride wore a gown by Ersa Atelier, covered in pearlescent beads, and a floor-length veil.

Sydney property developer John Boyd was Crichton's best man, and Boyd's wife Marly one of Hasandedic's bridesmaids, it said.

Crichton was last year on the NBR Rich List with a $130m fortune, said to be Australasia's largest independent vehicle importer via his Ateco business.

"The Ateco Group distributes Maserati in New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. From its Mt Wellington office, Ateco distributes Fiat Chrysler automobile products, while in Australia the company handles LDV vehicles," a spokesman said.

"Ateco also is part of joint venture company with the Walkinshaw Automotive Group to remanufacture the RAM truck range into right hand drive for sale in New Zealand and Australia."

Flowers at the wedding were by Mr Cook Florist. Decorations came from Decor of Distinction and lights from Chandeliers To Die For. Pictures were by Ryan Schembri Photography.
