Begüm and Murat got married with a beautiful Novotel Istanbul wedding. I joined them at Begüm’s parents’ home, where she was getting ready. Her mom and friends helped her fix her hair, as well as the wedding dress.
As part of a Turkish wedding tradition, a family member was helped her write names of single ladies on the soles of her shoes.
Before leaving home, Begüm discussed the last minute changes in the plan with her dad and Murat.
The apartment was filled with neighbours and relatives, and they all agreed that Begüm was indeed a beautiful bride.
Now it was time to leave, and we witnessed some emotional moments between Begüm and her dad.
Outside the building, the couple was stopped for some dancing…
… but that hightened Begüm’s emotions.
Luckily, those tears did not last long as we went to a nearby location for some poses.
After the couple shoots, we went Novotel where the wedding would be. In her hotel room, Begüm’s friends did a great job keeping Begüm entertained.
The wedding would be held at the poolside, and the bridesmaids were constantly peeking out the window to check the preparations down there.
And it was time. Begüm and Murat climbed down the stairs to the poolside for the ceremony.
