When you’re the heiress to a crystal fortune, it’s hard to imagine your wedding would be anything less than sparkling.

This was certainly true when 23-year-old Victoria Swarovski married the Munich-based entrepreneur Werner Mürz last weekend in a three-day ceremony in Portopiccolo, Italy.

Swarovski, the daughter of Paul Swarovski, tied the knot with Mürz, a property investor, at the luxury five-star hotel Falisia in front of 250 close friends and relatives. She wore a crystal-embellished dress from the Dubai-based fashion designer Michael Cinco.

Swarovski’s team shared the official wedding images — and the inside scoop — with Business Insider.

Take a look at the sparkling event:
