Gianni Molaro, a popular fashion designer, made it into the Guinness Book of Records with this gown. Maria Rosaria Lembo's dress measured almost 14m in diameter and weighed 218kg. Church pews had to be removed to allow the bride to walk down the aisle. In Naples, society weddings are an occasion for photo sessions resembling theatrical extravaganzas. The newlyweds are of course the main protagonists, with friends and relatives in supporting roles.
