A couple from Hanoi have been criticised for nude wedding photos near Tuyen Lam Lake in Da Lat City, Lam Dong Province.

The six photos were recently uploaded and quickly shared on the internet. Some people said the couple were only trying to show off their bodies for fame while others think that the photos are well taken and unique.
The photos belong to a couple from Hanoi, telling a story about how they met, split up and got back together many times before the man proposed to the woman. The couple are naked in the photos taken near Tuyen Lam Lake and the pine forest, a well-known destination in Da Lat.
Photographer Nguyen Hung, head of the studio that took the photos, confirmed with Zing News that the couple proposed the idea and the studio were responsible for finding locations.
"The bride is a nude model. The groom didn't like it so they split up many times but still had a happy ending. Their wedding album is supposed to be the evidence that nothing can prevent them from being together. The groom also wanted to show the bride that he loves her and accepts what she is doing," Hung said.
According to Hung, they started shooting from 3 am until sunrise so nobody else was at the location. The couple also said they wanted to make it look like they were one with nature.
The groom said he was the one who proposed the concept. They also gave consent to upload the photos on the internet. They haven't told their families yet but he saw nothing wrong with the photos.
Since the photos have caused a stir on the internet, Nguyen Thi Nguyen, director of Lam Dong Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism said they would look into the case. Nguyen Viet Van, director of the Department of Information and Communication said they would punish those involved if there was any violation.
