Getting to my point, when I first met with Hong and John I listened with fascination to the story of their backgrounds and families. Different stories, perhaps, but stories that had brought them together. Hong’s family is Vietnamese, but she was born in Hong Kong. John’s background is Chinese and Russian. They brought their cultures and families together on their special day by including many traditions; some Chinese, some Vietnamese and, of course, some Australian.
I feel privileged that in my home town of Melbourne I can be a part of a wedding between two lovely people that includes so much rich culture and diversity. That’s also what I love about weddings. They bring it all together: the people, the families and the culture.
