Nha Trang Wedding Vietnam: I spent 3 wonderful days with Vinh, Jessica and their families and friends who had traveled over from the US to Vietnam for their wedding.
Starting out in Saigon for a photoshoot around the city, we were only 30 minutes into the day when I had my camera snatched by a passing motorbike! Luckily I had another body and lenses on me so after a quick composing coffee we carried on and made our way from Notre Dame Cathedral to Ben Thanh market and finally to the gardens around Saigon Zoo. They were such a game for a laugh and fun to be around that I didnt even think of the loss, although it hurt the next day!
After a couple of days relaxing in Mui Ne, I met up with them again in Nha Trang where we spent the morning taking pictures along the beach. The weather was unusually unsettled but stayed dry long enough for us to get some shots. That evening we had dinner at The Sailing Club and the storm hit; high winds and heavy rain throughout dinner but it didn’t phase anyone. Vinh and Jessica decided that whatever the weather the next day, and even if it meant everyone wearing rain coats, that they were going to have their wedding on the beach! Love that attitude!!
The wedding was to be held at The Evason Ana Mandara, one of the first and best resorts in Vietnam. In the morning Vinh and his family made his way from The Sunrise Hotel by cyclo to The Ana Mandara for the Don Dau ceremony. Despite having to move from the garden into the bar they both looked great in their Ao Dai.
In the afternoon, the sky was dark and it threatened to rain all day. But come the ceremony it stayed dry and they had their wedding on the beach! A beautiful ceremony was followed by a quick photoshoot before a spectacular buffet dinner and dancing and laughing long into the night.
Thank you to Vinh, Jessica, their families and friends for a wonderful week!
