No expense spared: YouTubers PewDiePie and Marzia Bisognin's nuptials is said to have set the pair back an estimated £121,500
London-based specialists in vintage, antique, and bespoke engagement jewellery, Gatsby Jewellery, researched the details of the wedding to come up with the estimated costs.
PewDiePie, real name Felix Kjellberg - who is YouTube’s most subscribed independent creator - wanted an 'intimate' affair, which was attended by just close family and friends.
With a biophilia-theme, the ceremony took place in the stunning Nash Conservatory and Temperate House at Kew Gardens, which will cost anyone wishing to marry there around £21,000 inc. VAT.
This is a reduced rate, thanks to the pair's decision to tie the knot on a Monday.
Snapped: There was also a photobooth at the event, with snaps uploaded to social media by guests at the wedding showing that Photobot was the booth company of choice. This cost will have been around £900

Kew Gardens have a limited vendor list when it comes to hospitality, and there were only an average 40 guests in attendance at the wedding breakfast.
The couple are known to be quite particular, so cheap food was more than likely not an option. This portion of the event totals at around £3,000, at £75 per head.
Kew Gardens also has a specified vendor list for production (lighting and sound), which can also cover DJs and microphone systems, which comes in at around £2,500 for lighting and PA systems.
Considering the pair's high-class taste, it's estimated they spent £6,000 on this part of the wedding.

Lavish: With additional costs not included here in the shape of the custom table decorations, floristry, the unseen wedding cake, and more, it's thought the estimate of over £100,000 is a reasonable ballpark figure
Marzia shared a post on Instagram to discuss her widely-praised pink-toned wedding dress, which was bespoke and designed by Joanne Fleming.
Boasting a structured corset, delicate long lace sleeves, a simple veil, and tulle layers around the hips, the designer's dress prices start at £2,000, with materials added as extra.
With the delicate lace and slight blush-toned custom tulle, the gown is estimated to have cost around £3,000-£5,000.
The groom wore a svelte, all-black satin-esque tuxedo with tasteful light pink pocket-square to match the bride.
Beautiful: As well as the stunning Kew views, the party went on into the evening and ended with a sparkler-lit nighttime ceremony
The star enjoys designer clothing and, based on London’s Savile Row prices, it's likely to have set him back around £5,600.
Buying a bespoke three-piece suit on Saville Row - which boasts the royals and Hollywood actors among its clientele - will generally set you back around the £5,000 mark on average.
Gatsby Jewellery said of Marzia’s engagement and wedding rings: 'The diamond is a round brilliant cut with what looks like a very high white colour - G or better.
'The stone is in a claw setting with a funky bead design band in rose gold. A diamond of this size and quality would have had to have a custom made setting, so this truly is a one off.
Glimpse: The happy couple and their friends took to their respective Instagram accounts to show off snaps and videos from the special event
Lovely: After exchanging their vows, Marzia and Felix were met outside their venue by a procession of their nearest and dearest, who held up sparklers to light up their way
Marzia has paired the engagement ring with a unique rose gold wedding band of foliate design - again, this would have been custom made - and takes inspiration from the sweeping, organic lines found in Art Nouveau jewellery.'
If the engagement ring is indeed a diamond and not an on-trend moissanite alternative, the 2.5-3 carat ring with a G grade would be approximately £75,000-100,000.
It’s no surprise that the social media couple went to great lengths to nab the perfect wedding snaps, shipping-in overseas luxury and fashion photographers to capture the special day.
Decorations: Guests had their own bespoke table decorations in the ceremony
The pair hired Detroit-based Jessica Kobeissi, photographer and fellow YouTuber, to take the dreamy shots shared on their Instagram. She also used a second photographer, LA-Based Flannery Underwood to help support the photography efforts.
Typically in London, wedding photography can cost an average of £1,520 – but this one will have charged above £5,000, along with the travel required for both photographers.
There was also a photobooth at the event, with snaps uploaded to social media by guests at the wedding showing that Photobot was the booth company of choice.
This cost will have been around £900.
With additional costs not included here in the shape of the custom table decorations, floristry, the unseen wedding cake, and more, it's thought the estimate of over £100,000 is a reasonable ballpark figure.
Stunning: The couple walked around the luscious plant life in Kew Gardens
The couple married eight years to the day since they met, with the Swedish vlogger, 29, and the Italian social media star, 26, giving fans a glimpse into the special event on their Instagram and Twitter pages.
As well as the stunning Kew views, the party went on into the evening and ended with a sparkler-lit nighttime ceremony.
An eyewitness told MailOnline on Tuesday: 'It was a late afternoon/early evening wedding. It appeared to be a small and intimate affair with just a select handful of people.
'The guests used the Elizabeth Gate, the same entrance as customers. There didn’t appear to be much security put in place, just a few members of staff surrounding the venue with the wedding in clear view of visitors.
'At one point, PewDiePie and Marzia appeared to be by themselves inside the Nash Conservatory by Elizabeth Gate as guests waited outside.'

Marzia posted a stunning gallery of images on her social media pages, telling her 6.2 million Instagram followers that the day carried a special significance for the couple.
She wrote: 'Yesterday, the 19th of August - after exactly 8 years since we met - we celebrated our wedding with our closest friends and family.
'It was the most beautiful day, which I will treasure forever. I am so thankful for all the people that made time to attend the event and helped us celebrate our marriage.
'I feel like I'm the luckiest person and I’m so full of love. Incredibly ecstatic to be able to call Felix my husband for the rest of our lives.'
The pair met online in 2011, with Marzia moving to Sweden to live with PewDiePie six months later. They later relocated to Brighton, UK - a known haunt for YouTubers such as Joe Sugg, Zoella and Alfie Deyes - with their pugs Edgar and Maya.

Marzia was a known fan of her now-husband's online career and is thought to have slid into his DMs while she still lived in Italy. He replied and they became close.
Her screenname - before they met - was even CutiePieMarzia, a presumed nod to her YouTube idol.
He hopped on a plane to Italy to meet her, recalling in a Swedish Radio interview four years ago: 'If there was something I learned at this point was, if there is something you want, grab it, otherwise drop it. So I went to Italy.
'I did not even tell anyone that I was going away. I just left home and left a note to my parents in the kitchen and told them that I could not watch the dog anymore.
Longterm love: The YouTube couple met in the summer of 2011 and have been together ever since

'My deal for staying at home was that if I did not have a job, I had to walk the dog every lunch, a task I handled miserably.'
He admitted it was 'the most crazy thing' he had ever done, as he said: 'She was waiting with a friend at the arrivals gate. More beautiful in real life than in the videos she sent me.'
He proposed to her on April 27 2018. Marzia announced the news on Instagram posting a picture wearing an engagement ring and captioning it: ‘Felix proposed!'
Between them, the couple have 107 million YouTube subscribers, 24 million followers on Instagram and 22 million Twitter followers. Marzia, however, has not uploaded to YouTube for nine months, uploading a 'goodbye' video to it in October last year.
