Wedding Scenery Sets of Vietnam


One the outskirts of Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi – through an industrial estate and at the end of a dusty track – lies a property filled with replica buildings, kitsch backdrops and a Disneyland style polystyrene castle. Brides queue in the baking sun for their turn to pose while photographers jostle and push for the best locations. Unlike the west, where couples usually pose for photos on the actual wedding day, a Vietnamese wedding reception is decorated with elaborate images created pre-wedding. As Vietnam’s economy continues to boom, the desire and expectation of lavish weddings grow. And with this growth come more and more elaborately staged photography.
