VietNamNet Bridge – On a muddy country road, groom Nguyen Van Thanh, in a black suit, carried his bride Dang Thi Dao, on a white soiree, to his home on his back.
Hundreds of local people flocked to the road to witness this unique wedding on the morning of April 23, in Suoi Coc hamlet in the northern mountainous province of Son La.
The groom is 22 years old and the bride is only 20.
The road from the groom’s house to the bride’s house is very small, muddy and sloping, which is difficult for all kinds of vehicles. The groom, thus, decided to take his wife home on his back, along a three kilometer road.
The groom’s and bride’s relatives, who wore ao dai (Vietnamese long gown) and suits, also rolled up their trouser legs to walk after the young couple.
The groomsman and the bridesmaid helped the couple by taking the bouquet and suitcase for them.
The two main characters said that they are “very happy in their wedding day.”
