It was one big, extravagant Indonesian wedding.
The bride and groom were rich kids, the door gifts were branded and the guests made up of celebrities.
Plus, the celebration in the Indonesian city of Surabaya cost a whopping 75 billion rupiah (S$6.5 million).
The couple, dubbed “Crazy Rich Surabaya” with reference to the 2018 Hollywood film, wed at The Westin Surabaya on Nov 18, reported New Straits Times.
The groom, Mr Ryan Harris, is the son of former AirAsia Indonesia’s president Pin Harris. The bride, Ms Gwen Ashley Widodo, is the daughter of Surabaya property tycoon Markus Widodo and fashion designer Warren Tjandra.

Among the many attendees were Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy, former members of boybands Westlife and Boyzone respectively, who were invited to perform at the wedding. The Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger was also spotted at the lavish banquet.
Also on the star-studded guest list were several Indonesian celebrities, such as actor Raffi Ahmad, radio presenter Melaney Ricardo, singer-songwriter Raisa, singer and actor Afgan, as well as singer Via Vallen.
All guests reportedly took home door gifts from the luxury brand Hermes. One of them posted a TikTok video on Nov 20 of her companion opening the orange box to reveal the Hermes plate within.
