Crazy Backyard Wedding : Elif & Gurhan

I first met Gurhan at Esra and Aykut’s wedding. He was Aykut’s cousin and best man. When he called me 3 years later for his own wedding, I could tell I was up to shooting another joyful wedding. And when I met with his lovely bride Elif, I saw I was right.

They planned to have the ceremony and the reception at their own backyard. But they did not want to be around while the place was being prepared. So they chose nearby Les Ottomans to get themselves ready for the wedding. The fun started during getting ready. Here are the photos of this crazy wedding. You can contiune reading the story of the day below the photos.

I met the couple, and their friends, at Les Ottomans for her wedding preparations. They had fun time in their room while getting ready, and then we went to their home for the wedding.

The wedding at home saw more guests than I was expecting. After the toasting and speaches, the couple had their official ceremony on the platform built on their backyard for that night. After the ceremony, there was music and dancing. But the big surprise of the night came from Elif. She had already told me that she was planning to cut the skirt of her wedding dress to be able to dance comfortably. In fact, during the party, we went to the bedroom with her stylist friend, and re-shaped the wedding dress.  

The crazy wedding party lasted until around 3AM, with DJ, some live music, bellydancers, the garter toss, and more.

I wish Elif and Gurhan tons of love and fun….
