To round out the week, I have a gorgeous wedding film for you by Bernard Lau. The wedding of Mina and Thai. The couple held a vintage inspired wedding in Sydney. Bernard says “Their civil ceremony took place at Chipping Norton, right by the lake and boat shed which was celebrated by their friends and family and solemnised by guest celebrant, Le Tran, a close friend of the bride and groom.
Touches of vintage came from hand made bridal flowers, bridal hairpieces and bow ties, pom poms at the bride’s home and civil ceremony, photo decorations at the reception, flags and bunting throughout the day and custom message cards that guests could write into at the reception and placed inside a birdcage.
To celebrate the night away, the couple held their Wedding reception at Villa Capri, a venue that can sit over 300 guests. They were entertained by well known singers in the Sydney Vietnamese community as well as Brazilian dance and capoeira performances. The guests were then treated to a surprise dance performance by Mina & Thai, who grooved to “Nobody” by Korean superstars the Wonder Girls.”
