LASIE + NAM | NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA | DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
Lasie and Nam's wedding day was EPIC - a traditional tea ceremony, a first-look, food, more food, handball at school, a bit of luxury at The Langham and a full second wedding at the National Gallery of Victoria. Starting in the early hours, Kate from Urban Safari Photography and I captured the bride and groom getting ready for their first ceremony of day - a traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony which was centered around family, food and tradition. So much food, I'm not even kidding! This was my first experience with a tea ceremony, and it was an emotional, beautiful introduction to this beautiful and meaningful tradition. Following the tea ceremony, we moved on to the Bride and Groom's home where Lasie changed into a stunning white wedding gown, and we did a fun, joyful "first look" with Nam. The day just kept getting better with a visit to their primary school where these long time lovers first met! A game of handball was definitely in order - this bridal party win the prize of most fun formal portraits! The whirlwind day continued with some downtime at The Langham Hotel, and finally the National Gallery of Victoria for their second ceremony and a formal reception in the Great Hall. I told you it was epic!
