Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Garden Wedding of Thao & Stuart


Tell me about the beginning!

We met through Tinder in Vietnam. We talked for maybe a month or so and decided to meet up. We first met at a coffee shop called Cafe Tram, it had a stream running through it with Koi fish and little bridges. Then we went for some of Thao’s favourite street food (Bun Nuoc), which Stuart drove us to. He didn’t know how to drive a motorbike and was nervous! We ended the night by having craft beers at Rogue Sai Gon, looking up at the skyscrapers of the city we’d call home for the next 4 years!

When and where did you get engaged?

We got engaged 30/04/2023 (Vietnamese Liberation Day) at Mount Congreve Gardens.

What are you most looking forward to on the day?

We’re both looking forward to delivering and listening to each other’s vows, and of course, becoming husband and wife!
