I first met Kivilcim at Başak and Omar’s Wedding in Dalaman Hilton. Kivi was one of Başak’s friends who was running up and down, trying to help her out with the preparations.
Fast forward 3 years, and the same people running around in that hotel room met again in Bodrum, this time for Kivi’s wedding. And I was lucky enough to join them to document the day. Being greeted with such a warm welcome by the people I have once seen 3 years ago, made me realize once again why I love this line of work.
So without further ado, let’s dive into the story of this beautiful wedding in Bodrum Moon Beach, and the beautiful people within the story…
We started the preparations in Kivi’s airy room in Casa Costa, from where Kivi could see the large beach deck on which the wedding would be held. Kivi took advantage of that view, often stepping out to the balcony to watch the seating plan being implemented. She also welcomed her friends coming in the room during preparations.
As the preparations kept going, Kivi was starting to get nervous, thinking she started the day too late, and she would not be ready on time.
One of the things that was worrying her was the seating plan. But her friends were great at comforting her….
..and helped her assigning names to the tables.
In the 3 years that we haven’t been in touch, Kivi left her career and started her own company, importing lovely Luz De Mia accessories. She found the time to showcase some of the products to her grandmother. You should check them out in her website.
With more help from her friends, Kivi put on her dress in her room, next to the bed decorated with flowers.
And Özgür was getting ready in the next room.
They were not the only ones to get ready for the big event.
As we were getting closer to the time of the cermony, Kivi stepped out to the balcony one more time, to check the preparations going on at the wedding venue down below. She was relieved to see that everything was ready.
Let’s take a look at what I mean by preparations.
And finally it was time.
The couple were happy during the ceremony…
… and their families watched them with happy tears.
They danced their first dance on a nice Bordum evening, surrounded by families and friends.
After the first dance, they went back to their room to refresh. Kivi took her veil off, while Özgür replaced his ceremony bow tie with a more colourful one…
… because there was a party going on the beach deck.
Kivi and Özgür, I wish you a happy and cheerful life forever…
