SOME of Aus­tralia’s most rich and pow­er­ful are ex­pected to head to Hamil­ton Is­land this week as guests to the ‘top se­cret’ wed­ding of Ginia Rine­hart.

The youngest child of min­ing ty­coon Gina Rine­hart, Ginia will wed her for­mer body­guard and for­mer SAS sol­dier, known only as Si­mon, at the is­land’s qualia re­sort, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

De­scribed on its web­site as “one of the most idyl­lic lo­ca­tions in Aus­tralia for your wed­ding cer­e­mony”, qualia is no stranger to fa­mous faces.

In 2015, singing sen­sa­tion Tay­lor Swift brought her en­tire en­tourage to qualia dur­ing the Aus­tralian leg of her 1989 World Tour.

There’s ex­pected to be plenty of high-stature guests in at­ten­dance at this week’s Rine­hart wed­ding, each with very heavy pock­ets.

Di­rec­tor of Fairfax Me­dia Jack Cowin, Agri­cul­ture Min­is­ter Barn­aby Joyce, ad-man John Sin­gle­ton and prop­erty de­vel­oper Imelda Roche are re­port­edly among some of names on the guest list.

Whether Ginia’s three sib­lings will make an ap­pear­ance is an­other mat­ter.

The fam­ily is cur­rently in­volved in a very public multi-bil­lion dol­lar le­gal bat­tle, which has been on­go­ing for four years.

Ginia took her mother’s side in the blowout against her sib­lings, Bianca, John and Hope.

In Fe­bru­ary, Gina Rine­hart was or­dered by a court to hand over to her two eldest chil­dren priv­i­leged doc­u­ments in re­la­tion to the $2.26 bil­lion fam­ily trust.

In re­sponse the min­ing mag­nate pub­licly called Bianca and John “self­ish”.

It has been re­ported Ginia’s brother John “is yet to for­give Ginia” and there­fore will miss his lit­tle sis­ter’s wed­ding.

It is not known whether Bianca and Hope will at­tend the wed­ding.
