Not only providing you with beautiful bespoke wedding days using local cuisine, flowers and decorations. But also curating a wedding adventure for you and your wedding party’s entire stay in Vietnam.
Choosing The Perfect Wedding Venue
As an experienced destination wedding photographer, I can confirm that Vietnam is my favourite location for a destination wedding. I have long been in love with its culture, heritage, colour, vibrant cities, cuisine and simply stunning beach, jungle and mountain landscapes. And Da Nang and Hoi An have all of those things in close proximity. Allowing you use your wedding, as the chance to experience the very best that Vietnam has to offer.
Danang is a vibrant modern city that's famed for its stunning beaches, dense rain forest and the beautiful Truong Son Mountains. The perfect blend of natural beauty and vibrant night life offering something for everyone.
Just 18 miles from Danang is the ancient city of Hoi An, this well-preserved trading port from the 15th to 19th century has been granted UNESCO world heritage status. Its architecture reflects the influences of both indigenous and foreign creating a beautiful melting pot of cultures. Today, it is flooded with brightly coloured houses and lanterns light up the streets and the river. It’s a must-see travel destination.
Both Da Nang and Hoi An have stunning beach and river front wedding venues that specialise in beautiful destination weddings. And with so much to explore in the area. You and your wedding party will need a few days to take it all in. Your wedding will be turned into a wedding adventure for you both to enjoy with your nearest and dearest. Where you get the chance to show them why you chose Vietnam as the destination for your wedding.
