Mrs. Suzanne Lucas

My son, who is an Englishman, met and fell in love with a lovely Vietnamese girl. My family and I were delighted at the moment when he proposed to her as his wife, being a part of our family. I still remember the day when I was standing with him at Heathrow Airport waiting for her to return back to England from Vietnam. We saw the flight displayed “Arrived” and I thought I’d go to the restroom because it would take ages to get through the procedures at the immigration gate.

Unfortunately for me, the process did not take too long and by the time I got back, my son had already gone on one knee with the ring and proposed to her! She said yes, and we burst out with happiness.

The first wedding was a nice, simple event in a registry office and the proper majestic wedding was planned for the following year. Mikaela (my daughter-in-law aka my son’s wife) told me that her mother would like to get me an Ao Dai made to wear at the wedding. I heard her words and thought that was a wonderful idea and was extremely grateful to wear a traditional Vietnamese costume alongside my son who also wore an Ao Dai. I asked my mother to do my measurements and we sent them off to Vietnam for the Ao Dai to be made. A beautiful Ao Dai arrived and it brought a dim of Vietnamese tradition to a classic English wedding which made the joining of our two families extra memorable on a special day.
