Jessica + Tiem

Over the years I’ve witnessed some wonderful and memorable wedding traditions but none stand out more than Jessica and Tiem’s. Traditional Vietnamese weddings consist of an extensive set of ceremonies: asking permission to receive the bride, receiving the bride at her house, and bringing the bride to the groom’s house. The vibrancy of Vietnamese culture enlivens everything: gifts in the form of elaborately decorated lacquer boxes covered in red cloth, tea ceremonies, dress changes, Áo dài outfits, mesmerising dragon dancing.

 

Reception: Peninsula, Docklands.
Music: Band of Horses – “No One’s Gonna Love You”
