A sprawl of harsh and desolate desert opened on one side, where white-armoured stormtroopers milled around and Darth Vader mingled with droids R2D2 and C3PO. This view of the planet Tatooine in the Star Wars universe greeted guests upon approaching the grand ballroom of the Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta where Mr Tjahjanto Prajogi and Mrs Kentjana Indriawati—the groom's parents—and Mr Thomas Samaria and Mrs Nani Sutanto—the bride's parents—smiled brightly on the flower-decked dais to well-wishing friends and families.
