The REAL cost of Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant's wedding

Jules Robinson and Cameron Merchant’s wedding featured more product placement than romance when it aired on A Current Affair on Tuesday night.

And after viewers mocked the MAFS newlyweds for their seemingly endless brand endorsements, Daily Mail Australia has calculated the ‘real’ cost of their nuptials.

Had the couple actually paid for all of the services they received (instead of getting them for free as part of a television deal) they would likely have spent around $80,000.

It’s unclear which elements of their wedding, if any, the couple paid for, or which services were provided free of charge or at a discount in exchange for promotion.

Jules’ two custom-made dresses from Nicky Velani would have cost her an estimated $20,000 had she paid for them in full.

The fame-seeking couple are also believed to have obtained over $10,000 worth of free jewellery from Cerrone Jewellers.

Before her wedding, Jules tried on several dresses in the QT hotel’s luxury ‘state suite’, which typically costs around $1,500 per night. 

A segment also aired on ACA showing Jules presenting her bridesmaids with earrings from Roman & French. These gifts would likely have cost around $1,000 in total.

Cameron and Jules chose Beta Bar and Alpha Restaurant in Sydney’s CBD as their wedding venue, with the establishment closing both floors of the building for the ceremony and reception.

HOW MUCH THE ‘WEDDING OF THE YEAR’ REALLY COST

Had Jules and Cam actually paid for their wedding, they would have spent…

  • $20,000 on two custom-made dresses from Nicky Velani
  • $16,650 on feeding all 170 guests at Beta Bar and Alpha Restaurant  
  • $10,000 on Jules’ lavish hens party on a private yacht 
  • $10,000 on diamond bling from Cerrone Jewellers
  • $10,000 on 2,000 ‘hand-peeled roses’ and floral displays 
  • $5,000 on champagne for the guests’ arrival 
  • $1,000 on shuttling guests to the venue in a vintage London bus

Wow! The couple chose Beta Bar and Alpha Restaurant in Sydney as their wedding venue. The private menu there costs $95 per person, which adds up to $16,650 for the couple's 170 guests

Although management declined to provide a price guide, the private dining menu costs $95 per head, which adds up to $16,650 for the couple’s 170 guests. 

In addition, 40 bottles of the venue’s cheapest champagne would have cost $5,000, and the couple’s budget wine sponsor likely provided at least $1,275 worth of booze.

More than 2,000 ‘hand-peeled roses’ and other floral displays decorated the venue, which is estimated to have cost a whopping $10,000.

Can you really put a price on friendship? Meanwhile, Jules' hens party on a private yacht likely cost around $10,000 in total

The vintage London bus which brought guests to the wedding would also have cost around $1,000 to hire. 

The newlyweds’ hens and bucks parties also came with big price tags, although it’s unlikely they actually paid anything themselves. 

Bar M in Rushcutters Bay confirmed to Daily Mail Australia they had shut down the entire venue for Cameron’s ‘private lunch’ with his groomsmen.

While the venue did not disclose the price of this, it would not have come cheap.

The group were made over at Blow Bar Co in Balmain, where they were served drinks by several shirtless waiters. They later partied on a private yacht on Sydney Harbour.

Because each of the companies involved in Jules and Cameron’s wedding signed non-disclosure agreements, the aforementioned prices are simply estimates. 

Last month, Daily Mail Australia obtained an email exchange between Jules and a small business owner, in which she asked for complimentary services in exchange for ‘social spend’, i.e. free publicity. 

It is believed the couple struck similar deals with several vendors, with a source telling Daily Mail Australia that Beta Bar and Alpha Restaurant had offered the couple a ‘big discount’.
