How to Elope At The Most Beautiful Places In Vietnam

[Vietnam Adventure Elopement Wedding Photographer]

If you are planning to elope in Vietnam, there are many stunning places that will make your heart skip when you see them in real life. Some fantastic places in North Vietnam are Ninh Binh, Moc Chau, Sa Pa, Cao Bang, Ha Giang and Ha Long Bay.

The most ideal places in South Vietnam such as Hoi An, Da Nang, Da Lat, Phan Thiet, Ninh Thuan, Phu Quoc Island and Con Dao Island.

Vietnam has many beautiful spots for your ideal elopement wedding although some of the places below are at least 04 hours to drive from the nearest airport. What can I say, Wow! But trust me, it’ll be worth it.

01. Choose An Ideal Location For Your Vietnam Elopement

How to Find Your Ideal Places To Elope?

You can sit down together. Close your eyes. Imagine the moment you share your vows. This is the most important aspect. Your elopement day should be about both of you. Not one or the other.

Therefore, this blog is what all about. Scroll down to read all about the beautiful landscapes Vietnam has to offer. One of my absolute favourite things about Vietnam is that it has everything: Lakes, Beaches, Deserts, Mountains, Cliffs, Beaches and Rustic Forests.

If you know that you want to elope in Vietnam for sure but don’t know an exact location in mind. However, it’s okay to feel free to reach out anytime. I do have way more beautiful locations in my storage that I’ve been waiting for the right couple to elope at.

02. Find Wedding Suppliers And Accommodation

The best advice is this… the earlier you can secure your celebrant, photographer, videographer, florist, hair/makeup artist and accommodation, the better! 

Prioritize mid-week dates when eloping too as you’ll have much better luck with supplier availability and it’s usually quieter. 

I have a great little network of suppliers and artists that I’ve collaborated with over the years and I’d be happy to recommend them to you if it helps!

Last but certainly not least, I do believe that the right Vietnam elopement photographer needs to not only capture important moments you might have missed but also know how to prepare you for the best experience by assisting in location scouting, elopement planning, photography permit (if any), and so much more.

Tip: Whether you consider me as your Vietnam/Asia Elopement Photographer or any other photographer, the sooner you find and book a photographer, the better as some couples book anywhere between 6 – 9 months in advance.

03. Decide What To Wear

I always say to my couples that the best thing to do to enjoy the experience is to embrace everything on your elopement day, including the weather.

For Spring, Fall and Winter (especially winter) I always suggest bringing an extra layer of clothing and if you’re eloping in the rugged highlands/mountains some leather boots for walking are a must as well. I suggest looking for a shawl with earthy tones or perhaps a cardigan or fashionable (but warm) coat.

I’ve photographed in all kinds of weather over the years so I’m ready to roll with anything.

04. Important Information to Know When You’re Ready To Elope In Vietnam

The best time to elope in Vietnam depends on what kind of beautiful landscapes and visions you have in mind and whether you are eloping in Vietnam. There are many beautiful places from September to April next year.
