Capturing a Modernized Pakistani Celebration
We were fortunate to provide photography and video services for Neha and Abdullah’s big day. It was an honor to work alongside the talented team of Gökhan Çelem from Story Films and Furkan Akarsu as the drone pilot. From start to finish the three days were filled with beautiful moments and stunning locations that made for some truly memorable shots.
The adventure began with the first meeting on the terrace of the hotel. We got to know the couple and discussed their vision for the wedding. From there we moved on to the glass cottage on the beach for the rehearsal dinner. The sound, light, and decoration were truly breathtaking. The team behind the decorations, Ms Hande from A46 did a fantastic job as always. The night continued with a cocktail, open buffet dinner, live music, and a DJ performance. The party kept going until 01:00.
The next morning, we woke up to a bright day and set out to explore the shooting locations with the crew. We began with the couple’s prep rooms, capturing the excitement and anticipation of the big day. From there we moved on to the terrace, poolside, and green areas of the Mandarin Oriental. Taking advantage of the beautiful surroundings to capture some stunning couple shots.
Six Senses Kaplankaya
After that, we headed to Six Senses Kaplankaya with the guests, where we captured the ceremony and dinner before taking group shots at sunset. The view at Six Senses Kaplankaya is truly unique and we made use of it as much as possible.
The third and final day was the reception day, where the white wooden restaurant on the beach of Mandarin was beautifully decorated. We took advantage of the setting for more couple shots and group shots before capturing the cutting of the cake.
Overall it was an unforgettable experience to be a part of Neha and Abdullah’s modernized Pakistani wedding celebration. We had an amazing time capturing all the beautiful moments and stunning locations and we’re thrilled to share the video of the 3 days with you:
We hope you enjoy reliving this special day through our photography. We wish Neha and Abdullah all the happiness in the world as they begin their journey as husband and wife.
