Faruk Ilgaz wedding

Merve and Bülent worked diligently to make their Faruk Ilgaz wedding beautiful. And as a result, they had a dream wedding. I have met them while I was photographing Linda and Daron’s wedding, and Merve wanted me at her wedding as well.

We started the day in the morning, when Bülent came to Merve’s home to pick her up. Her dad was emotional when they were leaving home.

They picked Wyndham Grand Kalamış for their preparations, because of its proximity to Faruk Ilgaz Tesisleri. Merve had many accssories with her, to make the getting ready part more fun.

When they were ready, Bülent joined them in the room. They read their letters to each other.

Writing a letter to your soul mate to read at the wedding day is a lovely practive. It doesn’t really cost anything, while adding strong authenticity to the wedding day.

We went to the wedding venue afterwards, to find it beautifully decorated.

While waiting for the guests to arrive, they practiced their first dance one more time, to the lovely tune by Nat King Cole.

It was finally time. Two flower girls lead the way to the ceremony by the pool.

They released purple and pink balloons in the air during the ceremony.

Merve and Bülent performed their first dance beautifully.

Later at night, Bülent went into the DJ cabin to display his skills.

Having a wedding by the pool almost certainly means that the groom is going to get wet.

I believe the most romantic part of the wedding was the closing dance by the bride and groom, despite his wet clothes.

Even though Faruk Ilgaz Tesisleri insists couples to use their contracted photographers, Merve and Bülent chose to work with me. Thank you Merve and Bülent for this choice, as I enjoyed photographing your beautiful day.
