When social media entrepreneur and tech millionaire, Sean Parker married singer-songwriter Alexandra Lenas in what Vanity Fair described as a ‘lavish’ ceremony in Big Sur earlier this summer – they didn’t use the word lightly.

Taking place in a stage-managed ‘enchanted forest’ inspired by a combination of Lord of the Rings and Game Of Thrones, some of the highlights included...
