I want to tell you about the story of Kate and Anıl when they first met. Kate came to Turkey for holiday and met with Anıl who she met on the internet. They spent good time together and Kate travelled to another country for her holiday. Then Anıl did not broke up with her but he is not too insistent. He is very kind and considerate. After a while, Kate came to Turkey again and their relationship progressed to a level that she decided to move to Turkey permanently. They first moved to Istanbul then to Bandirma which is a small town in north-east of Turkey. Who knows, maybe their next stop can be Istanbul or Canada.
You can read the whole story at the bottom of the page (after the photos). Sample of Wedding Traditions in Turkey…
In the morning of the wedding day we arrived directly at the town of Bandirma with my friend Gökhan with a ferry. We met with our second photographer from Canakkale, Serkan there. Then we had breakfast with Kate and her family at a cafe in Bandirma. After the preparations at the hair dresser they organised a traditional bride ceremony. The couple had a flag on a ceremonial wooden stick. Then we made an outdoor photo shoot at small summer town, Erdek at the sunset and moved to the wedding location.
The mother and father of Kate delivered great speeches at the wedding ceremony. The speeches were really touchy. After the wedding, the party took place at a terrace with the Sea of Marmara view.
Thanks to the Bandırma adventure, I met with two great people. I hope we meet again. With love…
