Turkey Named ‘Favourite Destination’ by the World’s Leading Luxury Wedding Organisers

May 13, 2024 | Press Release

Offering spectacular nature, a rich culinary tradition and a diverse range of excellent hotels and resorts, Turkey is a prominent destination for glamorous weddings. Recently selected as the “Favourite Destination” by the world’s leading luxury wedding organisers, Turkey stands out in the market thanks to the many privileges available in the country, including a number of highly regarded event and organisation companies with multilingual personnel.

Following and implementing current trends, these trained professionals can easily organise luxury weddings and special events of varying sizes – from 100 to 1,500 guests – at superior standards. Turkey has emerged as a star in the destination wedding field as a preferred location for couples seeking to crown the happiest day of their lives with a dream wedding. Let’s get to know Turkey’s most beautiful wedding destinations more closely…

The Immortal City: İstanbul 

An extraordinary city uniquely located at the junction of Asia and Europe, İstanbul is a key hub in one of the world’s largest transport networks, easily accessible for family and friends wherever they live.  A city of culture housing immortal monuments such as the Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and Topkapı Palace, İstanbul also presents its guests with new generation experiences in vibrant and dynamic neighbourhoods like Karaköy. The jewel of İstanbul, however, is the Bosphorus, often described as a river of sapphires adorning the city.  The shores of the majestic Bosphorus are home to a number of acclaimed hotels and sophisticated event venues, which add to the city’s appeal as a wedding destination. From five-star hotel chains to waterfront mansions and royal palaces, İstanbul adeptly integrates the traditional and modern. Before and after your wedding, your guests can savour experiences only available in this enchanting city – sumptuous treatments and a traditional Turkish bath in a marble hammam, a yacht tour along the Bosphorus, or a fantastic meal of Turkish or international cuisine at an upscale waterfront restaurant.

Turkey’s Premium Star: Bodrum

Featuring prestigious marinas hosting the world’s most popular brands, exclusive hotels offering luxury services, and fine Turkish and international dining, Bodrum – Turkey’s premium holiday destination – presents a highly desirable setting for weddings. Easily accessible via Istanbul as well as via direct flights from many parts of the world, Bodrum is drenched in gorgeous light and colours – the turquoise of the sea and sky, the greens of the lush landscape. In addition, the area’s restaurants are lauded for their world-renowned Aegean cuisine as well as international dishes. With opulent resorts and all-night entertainment, Bodrum offers a wide range of options in the heart of the ancient civilisations of the Aegean and Mediterranean. Saying “I do” against the backdrop of a breathtaking Bodrum sunset, followed by a festive celebration with your loved ones and a dinner of fresh seafood are just a few of the elements that make a Bodrum wedding so magical. Additionally, Bodrum is one of the world’s most famous blue cruise destinations: You and your guests can rent a gulet, the traditional yacht of the region, and commemorate your happy occasion with a fabulous Aegean voyage.

The Heart of the Turkish Riviera: Antalya

Antalya is a destination that can be visited all year round; especially noteworthy in terms of timing your wedding to ensure that all your loved ones can attend. Antalya, with its luxury hotels, seaside venues and ancient cities, is almost custom designed for wedding celebrations. The area’s golden sand beaches are a lovely setting for open-air weddings, while indoor weddings can be held in one of the region’s gorgeously appointed resorts or hotels. Capturing the hearts of visitors with its long coastline, sparkling blue waters, virgin bays and sports activities, Antalya offers you and your guests’ numerous options for pre- and post-wedding experiences: Discover idyllic Mediterranean bays on a sailboat, snorkel or scuba dive, or simply bask on one of the area’s 231 beaches, Blue Flag certified for cleanliness.

A Dreamy Destination: Cappadocia

Cappadocia is not only one of the most beautiful places in Turkey, but also on earth. The region’s otherworldly landscape and picturesque fairy chimneys offer a perfect setting for an extraordinary wedding. Introduce your guests to this bucket-list destination featuring extravagant cave hotels, surreal views, stunning sunsets and lush valleys, as well as a rich and storied history. The authentic atmosphere and evocative scenery – accompanied by local specialties and international delicacies – creates wonderful and unforgettable memories, immortalised in one-of-a-kind photographs.
