"I had everything in my life except for a partner," Hang said during her speech in front of the guests at her wedding to conductor Tran Nhat Minh in HCMC Sunday.

"I’m bursting with emotions tonight, and I know that you’re ten times happier than me [seeing me getting married]. I appreciate that."

She also thanked famed designer Cong Tri for making her wedding dresses.

Minh said that he was trembling despite having stood on countless important stages throughout his life. He said that his piano and singing performance at the beginning of the party might be the first and also the last time he played an instrument and sang at the same time.

"I hope everyone present here tonight will keep loving us in the future," he said.

The couple’s wedding party took place at a luxurious hotel in HCMC’s District 1 and was attended by many relatives and close friends of the two.

At the start of the party, Minh sang "Manh Ghep Cua Hai Giac Mo" (Pieces of Two Dreams), a song composed by his musician friend Viet Anh that tells the story of a man who wants to accompany his romantic partner for the rest of their lives.

Other friends of the couple, including pop singers Ho Ngoc Ha and Vo Ha Tram, as well as Miss International Queen title winner Huong Giang, also performed at the celebration.

Hang, 40, was born Pham Thi Thanh Hang in Da Nang. She became Miss Photo Vietnam in 2002, then began a professional modeling career.

She has hosted the reality show Vietnam's Next Top Model for many years, and she also coached on the 2018 reality show The Face.

With two decades of modeling experience, she is considered one of the top supermodels in Vietnam.

In addition to modeling, Hang has also starred in several movies and TV series, including: "Nhung Co Gai Chan Dai" (Girls With Long Legs), "Tuyet Nhiet Doi" (Tropical Snow) and "Nu Hon Than Chet" (Kiss of the Death).

Minh, 42, graduated with a master’s degree in Russia and is currently working at the Ho Chi Minh City Ballet Symphony Orchestra and Opera.

The couple got engaged in August and completed the other wedding rituals on Sunday at Hang’s home in HCMC.
