Istanbul wedding at the Bosphorus Palace


Cansu and Efe were living and working in Ireland. For their Istanbul wedding, Efe’s loving mother took care of most of the planning. The couple chose to get married on a boat on the Bosphours. So Bosphorus Palace Hotel was a great location for getting ready, and also some wedding photoshoot.

Hair and make up at the hair salon

Cansu chose Saloon Özer for her hair and make up. Aside from herself, her mother and Efe’s mother were also there, at the talented hands of Özer himself. Afterwards, we went to the apartment where Efe grew up, to pick up the wedding dress and other necessities. I have really enjoyed photographing their moments here, especially using the fantastic posters in Efe’s old room as a background element.

Getting ready and wedding photoshoot at Bosphorus Palace

We went to the Bosphorus Palace Hotel for the rest of the preparations. This is a beautifully restored 19th century mansion with a lovely marble covered garden on the Anatolian side of the Bosphorus. The old boathouse now serves as a restaurant. If you are interested in seeing photographs from a wedding I photographed at this restaurant, you can check out this wedding story. Cansu and Efe, on the other hand, used this hotel only for getting ready, and some wedding photoshoot.

Here Efe put on his wedding attire, with help from his father. Then Cansu got support from both mothers to get ready. When they were ready to go, we used some time to do a photoshoot in this beautiful setting.

Ceremony and reception on the Bosphorus

We went to the nearby dock, where the boat was waiting with the guests. After a nice ceremony under a setting sun, the boat set sailed on the Bosphorus. The couple did a little than-you speech for their guests. The rest of nigh, they and their guests enjoyed good time and party to celebrate their love.
