After the beautiful and colourful morning festivities, it was time for some fun photos with Trung and Thu and their lovely bridal party! We drove to Bicentennial Park where, despite being told there would be a whopping six other wedding parties in the area that afternoon, to our surprise we ended up having the whole park to ourselves.
It was fun to see the excitement in Trung and Thu as they were being chauffeured around in these beautiful classic Rolls Royces.
They were definitely keen on some shots with the cars. Wasn’t Thu looking just gorgeous?
What a good looking bridal party!
There were some nice features in the park, like this cool series of fountains. The bridal party had a bit of fun here, before letting Trung and Thu enjoy an intimate moment to themselves.
One advantage to the overcast day was the lack of people. We got to enjoy most of the park to ourselves. We especially loved this long row of trees!
What a cute couple Trung and Thu make!
Once we’d had our fun in the park, we made our way over to their reception venue at Golden Harvest Restaurant, where the restaurant staff and musicians were busy setting up the main hall for Trung and Thu’s 300 or so guests.
Everything looked beautiful all set up and ready to go. Their cake was especially lovely.
Trung and Thu ordered a beautiful white Linen Guestbook album from us, which we designed using the images from their engagement session. It’s always so exciting to see guests signing our creations at the wedding.
Then it was time to introduce our newly married couple!
After the fathers’ speeches, Trung took the microphone to announce a little surprise in store for Thu—he would be romancing his new wife with a solo vocal performance! Of course, the inside joke was that Trung cannot sing at all. Thu’s reaction was priceless!
Golden Harvest Restaurant has quite a fancy sound system, lighting setup, and a pretty sweet fog machine.
I love these next few images of their first dance. As you can see, we had a lot of fun shooting with all the lighting effects as our disposal.
The band really got things going and started off a long night of a very full dance floor!
With dinner over, the bride and groom were brought to the center of the floor for some special words from the best man.
Trung had also prepared a beautiful touching speech for his bride, his parents, and his new in-laws.
As is tradition in Vietnamese and Chinese cultures, the bride changed into a beautiful qipao mid-way through the reception, before having to cut through their too-pretty-to-eat cake!
Trung and Thu had several vocalists throughout the evening that kept the dance floor going. It felt like a concert!
The other tradition that I love about Asian weddings is the part where the bride and groom go around to each table to receive a toast and well wishes from their guests.
Love this one! What a party!
Trung and Thu, we had so much fun at your wedding! A huge congratulations to you both. Wishing you much happiness and good fortune in your new lives together!
