Hi Carole Re: Wedding 21st May 2011 We just wanted to drop you a line in thanks for all you and your team did for us, and how easy and smooth you made the day and how painless the preparation was. Beginning with the trip to Antalya with Jamie and Theresa, who were both helpful and informative whilst still being professional and actually taking care of everything for us, we just followed them around while Theresa did all the work. Then we were shown the setting for our wedding on the blue lagoon, it was breathtaking, couldn't of wanted anywhere more beautiful or tranquil. On the day of the wedding all the stress was taken out of our hands by your fantastic team, we were picked up by yourselves and delivered to the already decorated and prepared venue, the ceremony was carried out and translated for us against the backdrop of the lagoon it was perfect. The seriousness of the occasion was dumbed down a bit when we all, including Susie the translator and the registrar all got a fit of the giggles, which relaxed us completely through the rest of the ceremony, which does not take long, but is still very romantic. following the service the bar was available for us and our guests and the DJ (English) played our chosen selection of oddities for us, we tested him but he managed to come up with all the rubbish we wanted to hear and dance to, which after the consumption of alcohol (lots) we did!!!! We had asked for English style BBQ food and we got exactly what we wanted, steaks, baked pots, chicken etc all done beautifully and with plenty for everyone. Anyone considering marriage abroad couldn't do any better than Turkey, and Carole and their team, thank you so much for making the best day of our lives the easiest. thanks again Mr and Mrs Archer (Mo and Steve) please feel free direct anyone to us via email should they require a recommendation.
Hi Carole Sorry its taken so long to write this testimonial I honestly dont know where the summer went and it doesnt seem like two minutes since the wedding in May. Since weve got back Ive been passing on your details to whoever would listen as I honestly dont think they will find a better venue or wedding planner anywhere in Turkey.! I can say that everyone who came along and shared the day with us had a fabulous time. The setting on the beach was gorgeous and it looked amazing with the decorated gazebo and the way you had put the candle holders along the red carpet. The whole thing was magical. We couldnt fault the food, it was really fresh and there was an excellent choice,in fact it was just a shame that we didnt manage to eat it all. The cake was also really delicious and moist.We also thought the DJ did a really good job and was pleased that we decided to have him rather than playing our own CDs as he somehow managed to pick the right songs for the setting somehow. To sum up I dont think there was anything I would change at all. It was great that I basically just turned up and everything had been arranged. It was stress free, I didnt have to do much at all other than decide on what food to have and what outfit to wear (thats another story)! You take a leap of faith sometimes when you let someone else take the reins but I can honestly say that there was nothing to worry about at all,you were very professional from start to finish The team you have working for you are lovely girls and nothing was too much trouble for them, they didnt have to give us lifts back into town after our meetings but they did and it was very much appreciated. I just want to express our thanks again. Jenny & Nathan are still talking about their wonderful wedding and holiday.If anyone is thinking of using your services then I cant recommend you highly enough.

Hi Carole From start to finish, the whole experience with Caroles Weddings was simple and stress free. Whilst on holiday in Sept 2010 we arranged to meet up with Carole to briefly go over the dates. We then went over in April 2011 and took the trip to Antalya to do the legal stuff. (Which may I say; was a lovely and interesting day out). Until our arrival in May, everything else was done by e-mail. The communication from Carole was excellent. Our wedding day was on 26th May 2011. We had around 23 guests which was intimate but enough for the boat, the weather was perfect, the boat was decorated beautifully and the food was gorgeous. The staff and crew were amazing. Robert and I didnt want what we call the pomp and all that comes with it like top tables and speeches and such, we wanted a more relaxed approach and even though all of that was on offer, it was no trouble at all for our wishes to be accommodated. They say your wedding day should really reflect you as a couple and after enjoying our holidays to Turkey over the past 10 years, especially the numerous Gulets we spent time on, we thought the Gulet was right for us. Everybody has dreams of their wedding day and how it will run and ours turned out to be the dream and more and it really did reflect us. Our guests felt it was one of the best wedding theyd ever been to and are still in awe of the whole experience. My Sister wanted to renew their vows again because it was so beautiful. It really was the perfect day. We met up with Carole a few days later to complete the final stage of registering the marriage and were presented with a disc with around 400 photos and the video of the day and the most beautiful album full with large photos (All airbrushed, Marvellous) On returning to the UK, we watched the video and cried buckets as we relived the dreamy day all over again. Carole, we cant thank you and your team enough for the most perfect day of our lives so far. We cant speak for the Beach venue but the boat was awesome. You were awesome. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Ley & Robert Yacht 26th May 2011
Hi Carole We have been back home and happily married now for two months, I thought it was about time that I sent my thanks for all the hard work that you did for us! We got engaged on the 14th February 2010, and within a week our wedding with you was booked! You made everything so easy, within a few emails we had our date set for our wedding! There was so little we needed to do before we came to Turkey, just choosing a dress and deciding on a colour scheme! We already had a date to sort the paper work before we arrived in Turkey, and although not the most fun day, it was easy. On the way back we also stopped off and choose our flowers and cake, all of which we were very pleased with. When we saw the beach venue we were so pleased, it really is a very beautiful setting! Unfortunately we were very unlucky with the weather, and it rained on the days leading up to our wedding. When I woke up on the day of our wedding to discover it was still raining my heart sank. But, I rang you and you put me at ease we would be getting married rain or no rain! You arranged for a lovely make up lady to come to our hotel, I was delighted with the results and the price! At 5.30 the rain stopped and the sun came out, I cant tell you how happy I was! Our 38 guests were all collected by bus from their different hotels, and I was picked up in a lovely car to be taken to the venue. Think I probably started to get nervous at this point! When I walked down the beach to the music we had chosen I was so happy, everything looked so beautiful! The ceremony went without a hitch, and then the party began! You organised for us to have canapés on the beach with the champagne. They were lovely and very much appreciated by the guests. We then had the confetti drop, before sitting down for the meal. The food was lovely, and enjoyed by all. The cake in particular was delicious with nearly all guests saying it was the nicest wedding cake they had ever eaten! For entertainment we had the belly dancer, DJ and fire show. The belly dancer was fantastic and got everyone up dancing, even my Grandad had a go! The DJ played great music all evening, and also had everyone up dancing. The Fire show came towards the end of the evening and I can defiantly recommend him! In all our wedding day was amazing, and we wouldnt have changed a single thing about it! Thank you carol for an unforgettable day! Best wishes, Mr & Mrs Meagor Beach wedding 30th May 2011
