MANILA – Celebrity doctors Vicki Belo and Hayden Kho recently tied the knot in Paris, an event that was dubbed among local showbiz circles as the “wedding of the year.”
And it probably deserves that title, given its hefty price tag.
Citing “two distinct, impeccable sources,” the entertainment website Pep reported on Wednesday that Belo and Kho spent a total of P80 million for their grand celebration.
The special report also had a breakdown of estimated wedding costs, based on sources and inquiries with the couple’s suppliers.
Among these are the P1.7-million first-class flight of Belo, Kho and their daughter Scarlet Snow to Paris; the P83,000 “donation” to their ceremony church; the two-day rent for the Palais Garnier’s Grand Foyer at P11.6 million; Belo’s one-week stay at the Ritz hotel’s Coco Chanel suite at P1.35 million per night; the bridal gowns by Michael Cinco at P8 million; the rented chauffeur-driven luxury cars for wedding guests at P1.76 million for 48 hours; and the five-course meal at the reception starting at P16,000 per head for 250 guests.
Around 50 local celebrities, most of them endorsers of Belo’s beauty empire, flew to Paris to attend the grand event.
This is Belo and Kho’s second wedding, following a civil ceremony in their home in Manila.
