Summary: A collection of over-the-top wedding photos for some coal-magnates in China.

Part of the People’s Republic of China involves an ostentatious display of capitalism: the coal magnates of Shanxi. Though traditionally an underdeveloped portion of China, the discovery of coal in the region, which amounts to about a third of all the coal in China, has made the area rich for a few of the coal owners who live there. How do these modest men express the dignity of possessing so much wealth? Consider the sorts of weddings they host.

  
What
Where


Naturally when you are wielding this heft of wealth, something as lowly as a Ferrari could only be used as an escort car.

The wedding limo would have to be something subtle and austere, saying “we have wealth, and we know it, but we don’t have to flaunt it. Hell, why not flaunt it?”: Rolls-Royce Phantom

The groom’s house looks like a corporate business building.



4

The dowry includes traditional items such as rice bowl set, but in solid gold of course, with cheque and gold bars. And why not throw a Lamborghini in there?

The groom and his “best man team” looks unimposing enough, not like the austere aristocratic royalty you’d expect from the props used in this enterprise.

The bride’s home, meanwhile, is no cottage.

8

Nor the bride a barmaid.

And what’s a bride to do without getting her nails done? Why not spend a $3,000, not on the ring, but on the fingernails themselves? After all, nothing lets the world know you are a worthy bride better than diamond encrusted fingernails.

13

The bride’s family looks unimposing enough, with only the bride appearing to be some sort of noble.

16

The wedding hall looks as you might expect: large and festive.

17

Here is the fleet for another wedding, which took place in Datong, Shanxi, the pride and pomp of another coal boss.

19

 

The 40 Porches Cayennes, Range Rovers, BMW X5s and Audi Q7 are worthy enough to be escorts. The wedding fleet itself would have to be something special.

18

The wedding fleet itself is made of four Ferraris to lead, 4 Rolls Royce as the main vehicles, and a pack of Mercedes, Bentleys and Audis to act as filler.

We may be talking about a communistic regime with its flair for austerity and the equality of the workers and bosses, but who says China has to be thoroughly consistent? Does wealth disparity exist? And how!
