Michael & Moon - Bermuda Wedding


Following his graduation Michael's nephew was due to go travelling with friends. But circumstances prevented them from going, so Andrew decided to embark on the trip alone. This brave move inspired Michael. He had always wanted to make the voyage to Vietnam, but could not find anyone to join him. So following Andrew's example, Michael set off. He was put in touch with Moon and a friend of hers who helped him plan the trip. They exchanged a few emails and it was not long before a friendship developed. When Michael arrived in Nha trang, Moon was at the airport - it was love at first sight. Moon showed Michael the sights, took him on a culinary tour and eventually introduced him to her family. Michael knew after that trip that Moon was "The One". For the next 18 months they spent hours on Skype and Yahoo messenger and travelled back and forth seven times. Michael had the proposal perfectly planned. It was a warm summer evening; they had supper on the beach at The Reefs, and afterwards, Michael was to drop to one knee in the sand and ask Moon to be his wife. The heavens opened however, and the torrential rain, thunder and lightening put a damper on Michael's plan. On the way home, the sky cleared so they stopped at Elbow Beach for that sandy stroll. The lightening was still striking and salt spray filled the air, so Michael decided he'd better hurry and pop the question before the rain returned. Just as Michael proposed, a huge wave rushed to the shore and Moon ran away. But, as you can tell, she did come back and said "Yes!"

















It is very rare that brides and grooms get ready together. But it was lovely to see Michael and Moon help each other get dressed. Moon wore a traditional Vietnamese Ao Dai - red signifies good luck in Vietnamese culture.
















































Thank you both for the honour of being a part of your wedding. It was truly a pleasure to capture your genuine adoration for each other...
