Happy new year! Sorry for delay in getting back to you. Here is our testimonial… After months of searching online at getting married in turkey, we came across Carole’s website and were so glad we found it, from day one Carole made the process very easy and stress free!
Obviously it is always nerve wracking to leave the planning of your big day to someone you have never met and main communication via email, however I can honestly say we never had a problem and everything went as smoothly as we could have hoped for. Carole is very knowledgable and is very efficient in replying to emails and answering all your questions.
We had read a lot online about the visit to Antalya to do the paperwork, and if I’m honest we’re dreading the 8 hour round trip, but I wouldn’t worry it wasn’t half as bad as we imagined, and we got to meet other couples getting married that week to which made the trip more enjoyable, the drivers were sociable and friendly and made the trip a lot easier, on the way back from Antalya you stop to choose your flowers and cake, at first I was nervous I wasn’t going to get the flowers I wanted as the owner only spoke Turkish however the shop had lots to choose and our driver did an excellent job in translating what we wished for, and on the day the flowers were perfect!! And a lot cheaper than you would pay in the U.K. for that quality.
We were also really pleased with the cake which looked lovely. We had arranged to meet Aaron four days before the bid day to go through final plans, at first when we turned up to the venue we were a bit worried what we had let ourselves in for and I started to panic, as the venue wasn’t set up on that day and there was loud music playing from next door, however after much discussion with Aaron he settled our nerves by explaining everything clearly and that it would be completely different for our big day.
And well he was right!! We had also requested a larger part of the beach to be cleared for photos and he happily arranged this for us! The venue was beautiful, everything ran smoothly, the buffet food was delicious with a lot of choice! We had the fire show and belly dancer which I would really recommend as it helped get everyone in the mood and the party going! I would also recommend Sharon the hairdresser she did mine and 3 bridesmaids and her quality was amazing! (We had a party back here in the U.K., and I went to a local hairdressers, and the quality was nothing compared to Carole’s!) It was obvious to see that all staff had put a lot of effort in to the day and were always happy to help.
The only thing that was disappointing was that the day went far to quick!! And I want to do it all again!! If you are currently planning your wedding and looking to get married in turkey I would thoroughly recommend Carole and her team.
