Sponsored by the City’s Education and Employment Association, the event was held to help the couples overcome their difficulties and build better lives.

Many couples are visually impaired and the others use wheelchairs because of various kinds of physical disability. Most of them work as lottery vendors or at centres that support the disabled. The couples were provided wedding dresses, suits and “ao dai” (Vietnamese traditional dress), wedding rings, flowers, photography services, a wedding feast and gifts donated by sponsors.

Some of the couples are grey-headed and others are not able to see but their faces expressed happiness when they tied the knot amid much fanfare and celebration.

The wedding ceremony was a dream comes true for the couples, many of whom might otherwise never have gotten the chance to get married.

In 2015, a group weeding ceremony for 40 couples with disabilities also had taken place at the Him Lam Palace Wedding Centre on October 20th. At first, the organization panel had planned to hold the ceremony for 20 couples, but the number then doubled./.
