Nguyet + Toan Wedding Day | Gala Center, Saigon, Vietnam

Posted on 9 July, 2020

We Vietnamese have a term to describe a couple who has similar or even identical face features: Same eyes, same lips shape, same eyebrows, etc. The word is “Tuong Phu The” – which can be literally translated into “Husband and Wife Shape”. It’s said if a couple loved each other from their past life, and if their connection is too strong for just one life, the couple will both carry some similar features into their afterlifes, to help them find each other once again. Romatic, right? To make it more visual for you, I can say that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively have “Tuong Phu The”

So I recently shoot Nguyet and Toan in their wedding day. And in some photos they surely look similar, which reminds me of the story. After some stories they shared, I find out that not only they look alike, but they have many things in common: Their hobby to travel, their favourite foods, their ways of talking, etc. Could it be that the folk story is true, afterall?

Well either way, I’m sure you guys would be happy together for life, Nguyet and Toan! Thank you for having me and Ambient Wedding Photography team at your wedding!
