Hanoi and Halong Bay Wedding: Why have a wedding day when you can have two!
The 10th October 2010 is a great date to have your wedding ceremony, however Hanoi decided to have its 1000 year anniversary on the same day. Whilst this didn’t cause us any problems, it meant we had to set the alarms for 0330hr to beat the traffic and head out of the city.
And it was really worth it! Nom Pagoda, a little over an hour from Hanoi, is a beautiful spot in a peaceful village. We had the opportunity for a morning photo shoot before the ceremony which was conducted by the monks who lived there, a very special ceremony and the first they had carried out there. Thanks to WedinStyle Wedding Planners for organising the day.
The next morning we headed off to Halong Bay, the weather was perfect and “Descending Dragon Bay” was glowing! A leisurely cruise around the bay on The Emotion was followed by a small ceremony and a big reception on the top deck of the boat.
