Last night, I witnessed an amazing Kazakhstani wedding at my hotel Çiragan Palace Kempinski Istanbul that is located directly on the European shores of the Bosphorus. Once the residence of the last Ottomane Sultans, the architectural grandeur and stunning view, both serve as an amazing ambiance for such a celebration. Turkey is known for its great tradition of hospitality and I couldn’t agree more. The service and friendliness here are outstanding.
I have loved the wedding decoration with oriental touches and the colour combination of lilac and green. But the most beautiful detail were the dangling wedding dresses overlooking the Bosphorus. Wow!
