Trang and Patrick’s Wedding | Hoi an Wedding Photographer

It was in late december, short before Christmas when we had the chance to capture this wedding in Hoi An, Vietnam.

Despite a bit chilly and windy weather everyone was in a great mood and ready to celebrate this beautiful day.


The wedding was held at the Victoria Hoi An .

Going to Hoi An for a pre-wedding shoot is more than just taking photos, it’s like bringing people on a tour and as the photographer you are their tour guide.  Hoi An is such a special place and it’s extremely photogenic with all the old architecture, temples, and of course the famous lanterns.

When a client asks us for a recommendation for the best place to shoot in Vietnam, we always recommend Hoi An first. You can capture the charm of the town along with the beach, best of both worlds.


Hoi An has been photographed a million times and a million different ways. We often see the same shots by some of these wedding factory studios, same shot different couples, one after another like a factory.  We aim to give our clients something new and fresh. I still of course take my favorite shots at my favorite locations that I’ve discovered personally through the years and years of shooting there; after all they are my favorites for a reason.


Each time I’m there I discover something new and each time I’m there I enjoy sharing my view of Hoi An with our clients.
Here are some of my favorite shots from a recent pre-wedding shoot in downtown Hoi An.

We’ve photographed dozens of weddings in Hoi An and in Danang and many of our clients ask us to help them with vendors so I thought I’d take this opportunity to compile a list of the best of the best.

First off if you are having your wedding or pre-wedding in Hoi An or Danang you’ve made a great choice, it’s the best of both worlds for the charm of the old town and it’s lanterns and architecture to the relaxation and luxury of all the  stunning beach resorts.

We will keep this list updated as we meet new vendors so check back from time to time.


Vietnam Beach Weddings- We have worked with Nadine and Simone for years and we love them. They have lived in the area for years and they have a the know how of locals with the understanding of a western wedding.


ByThuongTran Wedding Planners – We also worked loads of weddings all around Vietnam with this fantastic team as well. Bythuongtran specializes in all kinds of weddings from big to small and all different traditions.



Peter Mahomet – The one and only, look no further. He has lived in Vietnam for over a decade and he has charm and personality like no other. He also understands the flow of a wedding and is a complete professional. He’ll start as your celebrant and finish the wedding as a new friend.

Who ever you choose make sure you try to set aside some time to get some photographs in downtown Hoi An. You had your wedding in Vietnam; you’ll want to remember that you were there. Most of the resorts could be anywhere in the world, ask the photographer to take you into town for the portrait session so you can capture all the charm Hoi An has to offer and so you can have images to remember you got married in a unique location.

Other Options – Okay, to be fair if you really don’t like us or we are booked for your date we are still happy to refer you to some other studios. Email and we are happy to help.



Intercontinental Sun Peninsula Danang- Not only is this the best venue we’ve shot in Vietnam, it’s one of the best in the world. For photography, wow, just wow. Everywhere you turn there is an interesting backdrop with stunning views. The architecture is so unique and playful all done by the famous architect Bill Bensley. Add to that the service standard that is a given at all Intercontinental locations and you have a gem of a location for a destination beach wedding.

Hoi Boutique Hotel – For smaller more intimate weddings this resort has a modern feel to it and an excellent pool.

Anantara Hoi An – If you want to get married in town instead of by the beach this is a great spot for a wedding and for a party as you are in walking distance to downtown Hoi An. The Anantara brand is a luxury brand throughout Asia and their decor and service is top notch.




Red Bridge-A cooking school by day and an intimate venue nestled alongside the river by night. It’s not a resort, but their arrivals by boat are an experience to remember and the catering and service is always top notch.

Hyatt Regency- A great beach resort able to handle small to huge weddings. The food is top quality and so is the service. They have very modern architecture that creates a perfect natural backdrops for photos along with a great lush green lawn overlooking the  beach, the perfect place for a beach ceremony.

Weilun and Eik | Hoi An Wedding Photographer

When the weather doesn’t corporate what do you do? Well, you make the best of it and work hard to capture the best story you can for your clients. Weddings in Hoi An and Danang can be beautiful, but they can also be bombarded with coastal rain. For Weilun and Eik, their families came from Singapore and Taiwan to have their wedding at the gorgeous Hyatt Regency Danang Resort and Spa. The Hyatt Regency is a great location for destination beach weddings with its gorgeous gigantic beach view but on this day the sun didn’t shine.

Unfortunately for Weilun and Eik, the rain didn’t let up all day but she still wanted to some shots on the beach  so we toughed it out and got wet and had some fun doing so. I tried to avoid her getting wet and I took the blunt of it, but kept my cameras dry for the most part.

I feel in the end with their willingness and our willingness we created a great visual story for their wedding day. Thank you to the wonderful staff at the Hyatt Regency and for Weilun and Eik for creating a story within the story by toughing it out and going out to shoot in the storm. Thank you for choosing Mott Visuals Weddings to capture your wedding day.
