​39 disabled couples tie the knot at dream wedding in Hanoi

Sunday, June 24, 2018, 14:07 GMT+7

Thirty-nine disabled couples have been given the opportunity to shine at their dream wedding ceremony in Hanoi.

The mass wedding party themed ‘Dream come true’ was organized by the Hanoi Center for Women’s Development and Support, in coordination with other organizations, at the Trong Dong Canh Ho Convention Center on Saturday evening.

The lovebirds were given a chance to have a proper wedding ceremony that they had always been wishing for, but could not afford.

The event was originally designed for 42 couples, but three of the couples were not able to attend due to health issues.

Coming from various provinces in northern Vietnam, they arrived in the capital early in the morning to make preparations regarding outfits and pre-wedding photos.

Their family members also participated in the event to share the joy with the newlyweds.

Behind each couple are incredible and touching stories about love, strength, and willpower.

Hailing from Thai Nguyen Province, Phan Thi Thu Trang, who got married with her husband two years ago and has given birth to a boy, said she had never had a chance to wear a wedding dress.

“I feel so happy right now to be dressed in a beautiful gown,” Trang said.

Vang Quang Vinh, 34, got married to his wife, Nguyen Thi Thu Hang, 33, three years ago. The couple now has a two-year-old son.

Vinh suffers from visual impairment while his wife has albinos, also known as poor eyesight.

“We could only get married among our family members in the comfort of our house. We are so grateful to finally have an official ceremony,” the man remarked.

Meanwhile, Nguyen Thi Trang, 49, and Pham Van Tien, 50, who both suffer from congenital hearing loss, became husband and wife two decades ago and have had a son and a daughter.

“I learned to communicate with my parents through sign language when I was six. I am really glad they are able to have a real wedding party,” said 14-year-old Pham Mai Huong, their younger child.

“I love my parents and am so proud to have such a great mom and dad,” Huong added.
