You can tell these guys are made for each other! A little session of already married couple. They just wanted some pictures made in Bodrum, as they got married winter time in Ukraine.
Winter time is a good time to start sharing what I’ve shot in the summer. Because you know in the summer you don’t want to sit in front of the computer writing blog posts, when the sun is shining and sea is calling. And now it’s a perfect time to do that, when it’s cold and raining outside. And when my baby is sleeping, mommy is working, catching up with the blogging 🙂
Going back to boutique hotel in Guluk (30km from Brodum) right on a lovely private beach Med-inn hotel to shoot a wedding this time. It’s always nice to go back to a place you’ve been and feel welcome, see familiar areas, so that on an event day you can turn around quick. Shebna and Stewart was coming all the way from New York to get married in warm and sunny Bodrum. I was always thinking that New Yorker’s are always rushing, but these guys were totally relaxed 🙂 You wouldn’t even think they are getting married 🙂 Shebna even went for a swim just before her make up 🙂 Super chill! Her dress was exceptional, because when you have legs like she does, you would want to show it too 🙂
It was a real pleasure shooting in Med-inn hotel, when you look outside and see just a blue sea and feel the breeze that is promising a beautiful afternoon for an amazing wedding party.
This wasn’t the first time Alison and Mark renewing their vows. This time to renew their vows they choose a lovely 4reasons hotel in Yalikavak with a stunning sea view. The ceremony lasted for about 10 min by my lovely friend Tommy. Later we walked around the hotels area and enjoyed the moment and great weather!
I find it very cute when couples taking their time to have a little ceremony to be reminded of their love and respect to each other. No matter if it is a vows renewal or just a love renewal. It’s all about the moment in time.
I wish them many more years together!
Hannah and Bradley were getting ready to become wife and husband in Bodrum Castle! Their family and friends were anticipating the moment for Hannah to arrive, looking like medieval princes, finally to tie a knot between two families! It has been a happy and sunny day for two love birds to promise their heart and love to each other in such magical a place like Bodrum Castle.
Thank you for letting me to capture your beautiful wedding!
What is your ‘story’?
We became a couple in October 2006 although had known each other for several months prior. We met through mutual friends as Brad played in a band with a friend of mine’s then boyfriend. After spending several months going along to watch the band’s gigs we became a couple. Brad proposed to me whilst on a 3 week holiday to Gumbet in July 2014. I recall he was acting odd all evening but I couldn’t put my finger on why. Turns out he was planning on proposing but couldn’t seem to find the right time to do it. In the end it was beside the hotel’s swimming pool after failed attempts of proposing in our favorite restaurant and along the beach! It’s safe to say I didn’t have a clue what he was planning and it was a real surprise. Even my mother knew he was going to do it and she didn’t let on.
What do you love about her/him?
Hannah is – compassionate, pushes me to be a better man, makes me happy, a terrific mother, easy going, fun to be with, thoughtful, beautiful.
Brad is – Undoubtedly so committed and passionate about being able to provide for us as a family. He is the most easy going and accommodating person I have ever met. He will always do whatever he can to make someone happy – and he has made me incredibly happy. Fantastic father and I love the relationship he has with our daughter. He has the patience of a saint and I wish I had his ability to not ‘sweat the small stuff’. Above all else, he is my best friend and he makes me a better person.
Why did you choose Turkey/Bodrum for your ceremony?
We have been holidaying in Bodrum for several years and after getting engaged whilst on holiday and it being our favorite holiday destination, it seemed fitting to get married there.
Arrived to Bozburun following my GPS, that was taking me to KariaBel hotel. Ended up parking a car at the end of the road, where I could not see the hotel. So I called them, and they told me they are coming to pick me up with a boat 🙂 Whaaat? How romantic is that? I knew this wedding is going to be different and beautiful. So I picked up all my gear from the car to board a little boat that will take me to the main hotel building. While moving on a boat to the hotel, wind blew my hat away, cause I did not worry for my hat as much as I did for my gear, not to get wet 🙂 luckily the man who drove a boat, did not get lost and went back to pick it up. So far the day was going smooth.
Next stop was bride room. And guess what, I had to take another boat trip to get there 🙂 Finally I met my beautiful bride Kerry. She was getting ready and helping her niece and sister to get their make up done. They had plenty of time to just enjoy each others company before it gets busy. I left the ladies to do the final touch ups and left to look for groom. Michel room was just few rooms away from Kerry. I was told the groom has identical twin 🙂 I was all stressed out, so that I do not mixed them up 🙂 But once the twin brother of the groom showed up, it was sure I would never get them confused. You will see why, in the images below. These guys are super funny, could not stop smiling all day long. You could not feel any wedding stress there.
We could not ask for any better day for such a beautiful wedding!
Thank you for having me and let me document your day!
