The son of the world's richest man held a second wedding in Venice on Saturday in front of Beyonce and Jay Z after his first marriage ceremony in Paris three months ago.

Alexandre Arnault is the second eldest son of Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH) chairman and CEO Bernard Arnault, who overtook Jeff Bezos to become the world's richest man in May after his net worth climbed to £135billion ($186billion).

The 29-year-old is the executive vice president of LVMH brand Tiffany & Co., having earlier served as CEO of Rimowa - a high-quality luggage manufacturer. 

His bride Géraldine Guyot is the founder of French brand D’Estrëe, which creates 'high-end fashion accessories', including hats and jewellery, having studied at Central Saint Martins in London before returning to Paris in 2015.

Beyonce, who attended the ceremony today alongside a string of other stars including rapper Pharrell Williams, is among her celebrity fans and the brand is sold at 100 retailers around the world. 

The couple have been dating since at least August 2019 and became engaged shortly before Christmas following a romantic proposal in Paris, where they held a more intimate ceremony. 

The bride looked elegant in a white wedding dress which featured a high-neck design and lace detailing as she headed to the venue surrounded by her family, with her hair tied back in a graceful updo while clutching a bouquet of cream flowers.

At the time of their first wedding, Alexandre wrote: 'It started in 1998 now it's oui pour vie [yes for life].'

He previously shared pictures on social media showing Géraldine, who was named to Forbes' 30 Under 30 list for retail and e-commerce last year, wearing a vintage-inspired dress by JW Anderson featuring a high collar, long sleeves, puffed shoulders and subtle floral embroidery.

Alexandre trained as an engineer, graduating from France’s Ecole Telecom ParisTech and Ecole Polytechnique. He held jobs at McKinsey & Company and KKR before joining the family business with a position at Fendi. 

He was appointed to Rimowa in 2017 after he played a crucial role in LVMH's decision to buy an 80 percent stake in the high-tech luggage maker for 640 million euros ($716 million), its first acquisition in Germany. 

Under Alexandre's four-year tenure, Rimowa paired up with sportwear brand Supreme for a collaboration and made a big social media push to draw in younger, trendier shoppers and influencers.  

Analysts expect Tiffany & Co. will be given a makeover in a bid to do similar, as well as attract Asian customers.

How Bernard Arnault made his billions 

Arnault was born in France into the world of business and began his lucrative luxury career in 1971, working for the family real estate company Ferret-Savinel.

He was promoted to chairman in 1978, and remained in that role until 1984 when he was tasked with restructuring the Financière Agache holding company.

Within this role, the father-of-five strategised on developing leading luxury brands, acquiring Christian Dior as the spearhead of the new business. 

LVMH was formed in 1987 under the merger of Louis Vuitton and champagne producer Moët Hennessy.

In 1989 Arnault became the majority shareholder of Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, a role he has held ever since. 

His prestigious portfolio includes fashion labels such as Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and FENTY, luxury wines and spirits and champagne and wine brands, and perfumes and cosmetics.
