Michael Cinco and Swarovski teamed up to create this six-metre-long bridal gown of dreams (with a price tag that’s we can also only dream about)…

We’ve previously fawned over the work that goes into creating Michael Cinco’s out-of-this-world wedding dresses – and this latest one is no exception.

And new details have just arisen about the fairytale-worthy concoction.

For her big day, the 23-year-old donned a gem-dotted gown with a six-metre train by Cinco, who is originally from the Philippines.

The tulle and lace gown was decorated with half a million gems supplied by the Austrian crystal brand, revealed the designer, who set up his eponymous label back in 2003.

Subsequently, the couture creation weighed in at 46 kilograms, with a value of more than US$1 million (Dhs3.67 million).

I said YES to the love of my life! ❤️❤️❤️

“I said yes to the love of my life!” Swarovski wrote alongside an Instagram snap of her wedding day.

The couple, who invited 250 guests to their big day, tied the knot in the Cathedral of San Giusto, before celebrating with a five-tier cake, fireworks display and hours of dancing.

The heiress, who also won the German version of Strictly Come Dancing last year, held a fitting with Cinco earlier this month.

The singer donned a plunging halterneck gown – which she later wore during a post-wedding party  – in a short video the designer shared on his Instagram page:

Cinco is a favourite of Middle Eastern brides-to-be, and has created gowns for everyone from social media stars to real-life princesses.

The couture designer is also a go-to for celebrities for red-carpet events, and has dressed Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, and 2016 Miss Universe winner Pia Wurtzbach, to name a few.

Of course, with such star power comes a weighty price tag, with Cinco’s wedding dresses rumoured to cost in the tens of thousands of dirhams.

So for now, we’ll just be dreaming about wearing one…
