Wyndham Grand Kalamis Wedding : Nazlı & Yağız

Nazlı and Yağız was no ordinary couple. If you have seen my post about the story of Nazlı’ henna night, you might have guessed that the wedding itself would also be one of a kind. They practically turned your usual wedding day timeline upside down. You can read the story of this unusual Wyndham Grand Kalamis wedding further down this page, but first, you really want to see the photos.

When Nazlı and Yağız decided to get married, they faced the dilemma of many Turkish couples planning a wedding: They did not really want to do a big wedding reception to invite many people that they remotely know and hardly recognize. They just wanted to celebrate and have fun with close friends, in a relaxed and comfortable fashion. But there was a ceremony that had to be held, and families and friends-of-families had to be welcomed somewhow. 

Their solution to the dilemma was genius: They would hold a party with their friends before the actual ceremony, and they would do that in their hotel room. To be able to maximize the party time, they reserved the latest possible spot on the day for the official ceremoy (at 9pm). They also had a nice coctail at the hotel for the families and relatives. After the coctail party, they retreated to their room, kicked-off their shoes, and partied hard in a relaxed athmosphere. At the end of the party, getting ready again and leaving for the official ceremony was not easy, but they did it. 

For those of you who would like to know, Nazlı’s hair and makeup was done by Jonat’s Couture, and her wedding dress was from Vakko Wedding.

Congratulations Nazlı & Yağız for thinking outside the box for your wedding, and having me there witness it.
