PETALING JAYA, April 22 ― A video of a young Indonesian couple’s marriage solemnisation ceremony in hospital, as the woman lay ill in bed, has captured the attention of social media users.
The video was uploaded by Baskoro Wicaksono Martowidjojo as a chronicle of his bittersweet love story with his wife, Anggun Prima Persadasari.

According to Yoursay.id, the couple had tied the knot on April 2 ― sadly, Anggun passed away nine days later due to gastrointestinal bleeding.
Baskoro told Yoursay.id that Anggun had previously been diagnosed with lupus, and was experiencing ileus (a temporary lack of movement in the intestines).
“We were planning to get married in July, but Anggun’s condition was not improving.
“I wanted to stay with her at the hospital till she recovered,” he said.
The video has garnered 13.6 million views so far, with many commenters offering their support and condolences.
Baskoro, who runs a ceramics studio in Lampung, continues to share even more moments of his life with Anggun, as well as his struggle to carry on after his loss.
“Let my recovery be slow, I was still in love with her when she left,” he wrote in a recent post.
