Kim Nguyen and Mark Griffin


Kim was a Vietnamese Australian bride, while Mark was British-Filipino groom and both of them work and live in Singapore. Kim and Mark’s wish was to gather with 100 friends and family members from all over the world at a wedding location which would be related to the couple; and yet bring a new, unique experience to all the guests. After four months of planning, bythuongtran brought Kim and Mark’s vision into reality: a warm welcome to all the guests upon their arrival, a series of different leisure activities throughout two weeks so that there was always something for everyone, a gorgeous ceremony full of personal moments; and a reception served with the best traditional Vietnamese food, great and fun entertainments; by VinPearl Land - one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam.

"I had always wanted to have a destination wedding, and my husband and I had decided on Nha Trang, Vietnam. After 6 months of doing the initial stages of planning myself, I had decided to engage in a professional wedding planner as I started to stress with the lack of communication and preparation needed for the wedding. I had done months of research online but could not find a single Vietnamese Wedding Planner with a satisfactory profile.

Until one day, I decided to try my luck one more time to search for one, and happened to come across bythuongtran's website. bythuongtran was very quick in replying to my email enquiry and was very helpful in coordinating between myself and the hotel. The team's preparation work, such as the welcome baskets, decorations, and all the other additional little touches really made a big difference to the wedding.

What I found very important was that she was prompt on her emails, and always made sure I was on top of things.

Thank you once again, Thuong and bythuongtran team, for all of your help!"
