Mediterranean wedding celebration in Kalkan, Turkey

What can possibly be more special than a wedding celebration? How about a wedding celebrated over four days! We had so much fun planning a series of events for this destination wedding, to help make the magic last longer.

In more detail

Welcome dinner: Hosted at a luxury mountainside villa with stunning views of the sea, guests enjoyed traditional Turkish meze and BBQ, followed by fun and games in the swimming pool.

A day at sea: After boarding a gulet in the local harbour, guests spent a lazy day cruising around the local bays with plenty of swimming stops and a traditional Turkish lunch cooked on board by the captain and his wife.

A waterside ceremony: A memorable wedding party entrance by boat and ceremony at the water’s edge, followed by champagne and violinist at sunset, a three-course meal, more live music and dancing.

A rooftop wedding breakfast: For the final hurrah, a three-course rooftop dining experience with live guitarist, before heading to the neighbouring ‘garden bar’ for cocktails in the treetops (think treehouses and hammocks!).

When the bride and groom told me they were planning a four-day wedding celebration, I really wasn’t sure what to expect.

The four celebrations that Oligra organised perfectly complimented one another while giving guests a new, distinct experience to enjoy. The organization of each of the events was flawless but not fussy – the perfect balance for a laid-back Mediterranean wedding.

The welcome BBQ and boat trip were a great way for everyone to meet and build a rapport. By the time it got to the big day, we were all one big family which was wonderful.

It was evident that Oligra had established strong relations with the best local suppliers, and through their careful selection of venues, food choices and entertainment, we experienced some of the highlights of Kalkan and now cannot wait to go back for our next summer holiday.
