Swedish couple has their wedding on Nha Trang beach

Ms. Sandra Therese Fagerberg and Mr. Thomas Harald Gronvoll have lived together for years and have two children, but they decided to hold their wedding during their spring vacation in Vietnam.

The wedding took place on the afternoon of March 17 on the beach of Nha Trang city, in central Vietnam.

“We met the first time nine years ago during a skiing trip. We love traveling around the world and tours have helped tighten our relationship. For that reason, we planned to get married during a tour,” Gronvoll said.

“My family loves tropical climate, blue sea and hospitality. We also want to taste delicious food and see friendly people with warm smiles and we always dreamt of a wedding on the sea. All of the wishes can become reality in Nha Trang,” Fagerberg added.

They have been in Vietnam for five weeks. On March 17, at the beach in front of the Sunrise Hotel, they became wife and husband.
