Wedding frenzy

October 16th, 2008 | Posted by Davey in 06-Vietnam

This scenario is so far removed from what we are used to, it made us chuckle so we though we would share it with you. We were walking through Hanoi Botanical Gardens and seen what we thought was a wedding reception.  Having walked closer, another wedding couple appeared and another and another.  When in the heart of it, there were as least 50 couples posing for their wedding photos.

Having chatted with a few couples, it appears that it is tradition to go to the gardens a month before the ceremony to have their whole album completed so it can be displayed at the reception.  It was like snow drops on the grass from a distance.  The whole process looks rather laborious. Only the bride, groom and bridesmaid attended – so much for seeing the dress before the big day!
