Başak was living in Malaysia when she first contacted me. She and Omar picked Hilton Dalaman as their wedding venue. Besides being attractive to their friends from overseas, this location was close to Marmaris, where Omar’s parents live.
We met with Başak and Omar when they visited Istanbul for the preparations, and had a chance to find out more about them. Even better, some of their friends joined us at that meeting, which gave me a better chance to watch the relation between them and their close friends.
So when the wedding day came, we were together again at Hilton Dalaman.

Omar’s mother burned some small sticks, and rotated them above Başak’s head, adhering to their Egyptian traditions.
I visited Omar’s room as well to witness his preparations. His twin brother was helping with his hair and giving him a head massage after his shower, just like Omar did to him a few years ago at his wedding. It was his turn now.
Omar was playing with his nephew when his brother’s sister came into the room.
Omar’s room was at the end of the other wing of the huge hotel. I think I lost some weight running between the two rooms, trying not to miss an important moment.
The couple shared their happiness with their friends and reletavies that night with a fun and beautiful wedding at Dalaman Hilton.
Thank you Başak and Omar, for letting me witness your happiest moments that night.
