There are some places that you visit once and become enchanted. It feels like you must visit them again and again, that it is never enough. Istanbul is absolutely such a city; mystery, tradition, history, legend, colours and sounds… It’s a magic place!
We were there some 3 years ago for the first time, for a small weekend trip and were just looking forward to visiting the city again!
Imagine our happiness when we got a inquiry from Greece, if we interested in traveling to Istanbul to photograph a baptism. A greek family would travel to istanbul from Greece with relatives and friends and they would so much like to have nice photos from their stay and the ceremony there!
Well, their stay there and the ceremony were s-p-e-c-t-a-c-u-l-a-r !!!! More than a hundred guests traveled there. Plus aproximately 30 persons/professionals who would take care of the sound, the lighting, the photo and video covering, the orchestra, the dancers… The day prior the guests were offered a cruise in Bosporus while the day after, when the ceremony was over, the family guested all the guests with a coctail party at the gardens of the Ciragan Palace Kempinski Istanbul, which was followed by a dinner in the hotel and dance untill early in the morning.
Due to the request of the family for anonimity not the names nor their photos will be shown at the blog, but a post is coming soon with photos from city, the cruise and the party!
ps: the photo of the Sultan Ahmet cami under the full moon is taken from the window of our hotel! Not a bad view!)
