Hollywood actress at the wedding

The couple got engaged in a traditional ceremony in January 2023, according to USA Today, and are reportedly childhood sweethearts. In March, Merchant told Vogue she recognizes the ceremonies and events the couple is having “is a privilege few people experience, and I truly feel blessed.” But Ambani and Merchant are far from the only well-heeled people who have hired pop stars to perform at weddings, birthday parties, corporate functions and other events. The New Yorker reported last May “most big-name musicians are available (for private concerts) these days, under the right conditions,” adding rapper Flo Rida charges between $150,000 and $300,000 for stateside gigs, and up to $1 million for international private gigs.
