Overseas Wedding In Vietnam Ho Chi Minh City – Day 1 | Singapore Wedding Photographer

Henry and Kayo’s wedding in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City.

Một, Hai, Ba, Cám ơn – these were the only five words in Vietnamese that I knew (bride taught me). And its probably all that I’ll need to get the family shots done, but language is no barrier to the warmth and hospitality of the Vietnamese people here. The rich culture and vibrant colors of this traditional Vietnamese wedding transports me into another world so beautiful, I would had never experienced anything similar back in Singapore.

Henry and Kayo, thank you for flying me in. Its been a great pleasure.

This is a two days long wedding and here are some photos from the traditional ceremony from day one. Day 2 to follow soon.

I am missing the Vietnamese ice coffee already.
