Emma Huynh and Nguyen Pham honoured their cultural background in the first chapter of their wedding day.
The Sydney pair, 30 and 32 respectively, started their big day with a tea ceremony on October 4, 2014. “I respected both parents and had the Vietnamese traditional ceremony,” explains Emma.
In line with Vietnamese custom, Emma wore a red gown tailor-made by Ceci.
But before the big day, of course came a proposal. “Nguyen pretended that he had scratched the back of my car and made me open the boot to inspect it,” says Emma. “Once I opened the boot it was a surprise – filled with flowers and scattered rose petals. I turned around he was on one knee.”
Emma says the two are complete opposites, creating the ideal balance in a relationship. “We challenge each other all the time and that brings out the best of one another,” she says. “He fills the gaps that I’m missing and the same for him.”

“The day should be about love and happiness,” Emma says.
“It was a super fun wedding,” smiles Emma. “It was filled with laughter.”
“After 10 years together we finally tied the knot and it was great to have shared our wedding with friends and family,” says Emma.
