Ramos wedding: why Jeff Bezos footed some of the bill
The lavish event in Seville included a ceremony in the city's stunning cathedral, a dinner and party on a country estate for 500 guests, and a performance by AC/DC.
The wedding of Sergio Ramos and TV presenter Pilar Rubio has been gathering enormous public attention not only because of the celebrity status of the couple itself, but also for the spectacular and ambitious event they designed for the occasion.
The couple had planned and organised the event or several months, making a huge investment to make their special day unforgettable. Although, reportedly they haven't had to bear the brunt of the investment by themselves.
According to a local news outlet in Seville, the hometown of Ramos and the location for the lavish celebration, there is a series of expenses related to the event for which Amazon is footing the bill. Diario Sevilla claims to have gathered the information from sources close to the wedding organisation, who say the company owned by billionaire Jeff Bezos helped to pay for the event.
So why has Amazon paid for Sergio Ramos’ wedding? Well, the Real Madrid star is currently developing an eight-part docuseries with Amazon’s video content platform, Amazon Prime, which will offer a look into the day-to-day life of the player. And his wedding to Rubio is set to be featured in the series.
Docuseries will show Ramos' life on and off the pitch
Ramos himself announced he was making the series in January through a video shared on his social media channels, saying that the show will cover aspects of his life "not only on the field but also off it.” As such, his wedding will likely take up a full half-hour episode.
The Amazon Prime series on Ramos will be released in more than 200 countries later this year, allowing viewers to get a glimpse of the elaborate wedding celebration, which included a ceremony in Seville’s stunning cathedral, a dinner and party on a country estate for the 500 guests, and a performance by AC/DC.
