Prince Abdul Malik (31) is the son of the Sultan of Brunei, one of the wealthiest people in the world, and second in line to the oil rich nation's throne.

He wed former computer data analyst Raabi'atul Adawiyyah (22) on April 5th and the couple's celebrations will last until April 10th.

The now-billionaire bride opted for a bouquet of gems rather than flowers and both bride and groom's wedding outfits were covered in diamonds. Even her shoes, a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, had been embellished with diamonds.
