Evos & Ahmet short wedding video.

I am finally sharing it, the short (15 minute) version of our wedding video. You have been asking me a lot of questions regarding the wedding, and I am often avoiding to make bold statements. It should reflect your taste and I am so afraid to make a suggestion that will not work out for you in the end. But I can safely and surely state that Ayse Kaya (photography) and Can Kinalikaya (video) are the best ones in Turkey. Their work is beyond the usual wedding photos and videos. And I’d say photos and videos are BY FAR the most important parts of the wedding because they are endless. It just amazes me to think that we will still be watching this video 50 years later.

We watched the video with laughters, tears and joy with all our friends & family at our house. I hope you like it as well.

the wedding… … …

Our wedding has come and passed without even a proper farewell across the city with hideous trappings, flying balloons or fireworks… Well that’s kind of what you are expecting if preparing a wedding requires a handful amount of tasteful family members, – a mother with 4 hands is a must -, plentiful good friends who turn out to be very successful full-time cheer up mechanisms, a small army of professionals from a wedding organization company, tons of advices (none applied though) and finally yourself – the soon bride to be – buried in a sack of pictures for inspiration.

Well, I don’t mean to scare off the new “born to be afraid of commitment” generation but that’s what you should be expecting if you want a well organized, good wedding. You always have the option to pay the money and back off, leave every detail to professionals, but this option was not even an option if the lead character is me – many of my closest friends can confirm that I am a total control freak, with proof. seriously. As much as I have adored every single detail that A46 team has created, I entered the ballroom at least 20 times during the 3 days of decorating process and was dragged out by Ahmet and reminded that I had to let people do their jobs. Blaaah.

I did MY JOB though. I wore a bridal, became a total bridezilla at the last minute, freaked everyone out, had a couple of drinks, said yes, kissed 600 people (makes 1200 cheeks), changed my dress, danced on my heels until 4 a.m, jumped, laughed and DONE! There you have the summary of the short transition from being a bride to becoming just another wife. Not that I’m complaining, but when I think about the days, God they were fun!!! The wedding hassle began 3 days before when our friends began to arrive Istanbul from London, Athens, Paris, Madrid and etc. Our friends and family were absolutely AMAZING at all times, making everything much more easy, calm and enjoyable. Thinking now about back then makes me realize why I love them this much. Seriously, they are the best.

Anyways, since my job as a bride is totally done, here is my job as a blogger. After tons of request, here you have the wedding pictures. This is gonna be quite long so I hope you have time.

Save The Date!!!

Our “Save The Date” video that was produced and filmed by Ayse Kaya and Can Kinalikaya is finally here! The video only shows the 2 minutes from the “whole day Istanbul tour”, – filled with laughter and varies of physical exercises such as jumping running walking ๐Ÿ™‚ ย We had so much fun filming it and I think it was totally worth it. As you can guess, the video will be sent as a link to our wedding guests via email or facebook. I’m sure there will be many that we forget or can’t reach so we apologize in advance. Official invitations will be sent to everyone on December!

Sonunda Ayse Kaya ve Can Kinalikaya tarafindan hazirlanan “Save The Date” video’muz geldi! Istanbul’u karis karis dolasip kosturdugumuz, cok yorulup eglendigimiz gunden kalan goruntuler… Bu video tahmin ettiginiz gibi dugune davetli olan (email ya da facebook yoluyla ulasabildigimiz) herkese mesaj ya da email olarak da yollaniyor. Daha bu ise yeni basladik ve herkese ulasmamiz cok zaman alacak biliyorum ama umarim unuttugumuz birileri kalmaz. Oyle birsey olursa da affinizi diliyoruz, resmi davetiyeler en gec Aralik’ta zaten elinize ulasacaktir!

Videoyu ceken Can, Ayse ve Cem’e, ayrica butun pesimizde kosusturan Burcucugumuza tesekkurler ๐Ÿ™‚

Evos โ™ฅ Ahmet Engagement Shoot

It’s here, finally! For those who don’t know, I must say this again – I’m getting married on 7th of January!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Ahmet and I have been dating since 2003 – so that makes 8 years, easy math ๐Ÿ™‚ He is my favorite person in the world and the person I have the most fun with – (kind of the same thing). So I consider myself very lucky, being in a relationship with such a beautiful person. Now being able to spend the rest of my life with him makes me feel like – I don’t know, no words to describe I guess ๐Ÿ™‚

Engagement shoot is not very popular in Turkey – however I think it will be ๐Ÿ™‚ It is basically a photo shoot made before the wedding, to be used during the wedding, send to guests, family & friends, and also it’s a good album to have and keep for the rest of your life.ย Here is our engagement shoot that we had 2 weeks ago with our wonderful photographer Rik Pennington. Rik was very helpful and made it very easy for both of us (if we consider Ahmet not being comfortable with his pictures taken for 2 hours straight). It was a LOVELY day in Regents Park. I think we were very lucky because the weather in London has been awful in the last two weeks and that was probably one of the very few days we had sun. Here are some of my favorite shots. Tell me please which one is your favorite because we’re considering to use one of them for our invitation cards. (it’s still sounds extremely different & fancy to say “OUR invitation cards” ๐Ÿ™‚ ). Anyway, I am waiting for your comments!
