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.

CATERING (WEDDING DAY OR REHEARSAL DINNERS)
Mango Mango-This the coolest restaurant/bar in Hoi An owned by the lovely couple Duc and Ly. Both are Vietnamese/Americans who moved to Hoi An to settle down, they’ve opened 3 locations in downtown Hoi An. Their food and cocktails are amazingly delicious and they are the ultimate hosts. Book them for catering of your actual wedding day or for that intimate family or wedding party dinner and drinks before at one of their restaurants. If you want something different and awesome, go see them. Duc has be featured in the New York Times, Lonely Planet, basically everywhere from publications to cooking shows.
PHOTOGRAPHERS AND VIDEOGRAPHERS
Mott Visuals Weddings- Of course, because we are the best wedding photographer and videographers in Vietnam and beyond how could I say any different :). Okay, that sounded cocky, check our portfolio and see if we are the right fit for you. We have a team of photographers and videographers who have shot weddings all over the world and all have a background shooting for the largest publications in the world including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Forbes, CNN, BBC, and many more. Our packages are all-inclusive so you don’t have to worry about expenses. 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 email@example.com and we are happy to help.
1/ 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.

2/ Hoi An Boutique Hotel – For smaller more intimate weddings this resort has a modern feel to it and an excellent pool.
3/ 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.
4/ 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.
5/ 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.
Yaly- Hoi An is famous for their tailors so if want to get the groomsman or brides custom suits or dresses cheap and in rapid turnaround time check out Yaly’s giant location in Hoi An.
That’s all for now, but we will be adding more vendors soon in Part 2 of this blog. If you have any questions please post them in the comments sections so we share with our readers.
