The couple have rented the 16th century Belvedere Fort for more than $400, 000 thousand dollars (USD) for the occasion. However as the castle is not an authorized site for weddings, there was some question about whether the occasion will be an officially recognized marriage ceremony or a celebration with some looser status.
