A Rustic, Mermaid-Inspired Beach Wedding in Ho Tram, Vietnam
This wedding was all about the details and textures. What more is there to add, really, when you have a beach like this? Keeping to a colour palette of tan, nude and other neutral hues, the newlyweds ensured that their beach theme took centre stage. The bride even got to live out her fantasy of being a mermaid with a seashell halo crown! Many thanks to Hipster Wedding for capturing all the thoughtful elements that made this beautiful wedding.
Chris: “My most memorable moment was when Thu walked out onto the aisle looking stunning. Standing on the beach with the sun going down, taking photos as a newly married couple just after our ceremony, and with so many of our friends and family together in one place was such a great feeling. We rushed out a dance in the last week with a few lessons, and it worked out well even though we were so nervous! Once we got dancing, we didn’t miss a beat. We also took our guests down to a river and gave them lanterns to write a message in. Then we put lit candles inside them and placed them on the water.”
Thu: “We chose Ho Tram because it was the first beach we travelled to when we met. We had a beach wedding because we both grew up by the beach. Also, coming from a sailing background, I had always dreamed of a beach wedding.
“I have always fantasised about being a mermaid! My close friend who is also a designer, Tín Thái, helped to make my dreams come true by creating a mermaid-style dress with a halo crown of beautiful seashells. It was gorgeous! The wedding invitations were messages in bottles, all homemade by Chris and me, using sand and seashells from Ho Tram beach.”
Tips from the bride: “Organise, stay calm and relax! Everything will fall into place.”
