Merve and Emre is a very beautiful couple who work at the same company and they met there. They chose an extraordinary as their wedding location. Halat by Divan Restaurant in the Rahmi Koç Museum.
You can read the whole story at the bottom of the page (after the photos)… Istanbul Halat by Divan Wedding Photos.
Rahmi Koc Museum
Rahmi Koç Museum is one of the places that the most of the wedding organisations take place. Therefore photos taken here are a risk as they can be stereotypical if you use ordinary backgrounds. However this marvellous place also provides a lot of opportunity to the photographer too. It was a very exciting outdoor photo shoot opportunity for me to use great reflections and flash techniques. After the preparations, the outdoor photo shoot really excited me. You cannot make your mind on which background to use. By the way, as the couple works for Mercedes, I did not miss the opportunity to take a photo in front of a classic Mercedes.
From The Sea to The Ceremony
Before the wedding ceremony, we took off to Halic on an old boat with the couple and their close friends. After a one hour afternoon tour, the boat arrived at the ceremony location. Meanwhile my friend Mine was taking photos at the shore as a second photographer. I am really thankful for her support. After the ceremony we moved to Halat by Divan for the wedding dinner. At the end of the night, we moved to Bar Bar Rossa by Divan for the after party which has an antique decoration.
I am really grateful to the couple and the guests for their hospitality and collaboration. I wish you a cheerful and happy marriage.
