Babadag 1700 Bar & Grill 05-August-2020
Right, where do we start!! There’s not enough words in the world to describe how incredible our day was. Due to COVID, the run up to our wedding was uncertain and stressful to say the least, but Rachel and the OBW team were our saving grace! Not only did they reassure us via email regularly, keeping us informed of any developments, Rachel was always there for any questions or concerns we had. Then we finally got to Turkey after months of not knowing whether our big day would happen, we had a meeting with Rachel and it became apparent that we had nothing to worry about as Rachel had everything in hand and every finer detail was thought about! We met with the florist, who was great, he even brought samples to show us which really helped us get a good idea of what we wanted.
We had the same driver for all of our meetings, from booking, the year before, to our last legal paperwork meeting, he was fantastic. Man of few words but so kind and ever so helpful! We had our hair & makeup done at Goldfinger Hair & Beauty Salon and couldn’t have been happier with the service and entertainment they provided! No wonder Rachel uses this salon, they were so fab and we had so much fun!
And as for the wedding day, what can I say!! Rachel and the team pulled out all of the stops, and every tiny detail was thought about. From the music that was playing in the bridal car on the way to the venue, to every time she adjusted ties and straightened out my dress for pictures. She and the team ensured the day ran so smoothly and it was more than we could have ever imagined. It genuinely was the best day of our lives and we are so grateful for all of the work and effort that went into it. Our guests all said that it was easily the most beautiful and emotional wedding that they have ever been to.
The venue was stunning, incredible views, food was divine & the beautiful decoration pulled it all together and made it perfect. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for giving us the most incredible day especially during such a difficult time. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thankyou thankyou thankyou!
Paradise Beach & Sea Breeze 07-August-2020
I want to say a massive thank you to Rachel and the team at Oludeniz Beach Weddings. We got married on the 07/08/2020 and had the most amazing day.
The booking process was easy and straightforward, from the first email all the way through until the wedding day, Rachel was always there to answer any questions (and we had quiet a few due to covid!).
At our Pre Wedding Meeting we discussed everything in detail i.e. cake decorations, food and the florist was even there with samples of seasonal flowers. Nothing was too much trouble. We were picked up from villa and taken to get paperwork and blood tests done all quick and easy.
We had our ceremony at Paradise beach and the sunset was out of this world. Then onto Sea Breeze Hotel for our reception which was also beautiful.
We choose the Gourmet BBQ and the meat just melted in your mouth. We also had belly dancer which was great entertainment and fireworks.
We couldn’t of wished for a better day xxxx
What can we say other than perfect! Rachel and all the team at Oludeniz Beach Weddings took care of everything and nothing was too much trouble - from the legal documentation needed prior, to the choosing of the flowers and cake. The Hair and Makeup done by Goldfinger was perfect and despite us not knowing exactly what we wanted, they went the extra mile to ensure we were all happy.
Our wedding was very intimate with only 12 guests, however despite this the atmosphere and service was exactly how we would have wanted. The positioning and decoration of the table was perfectly done to benefit the scenery and views from Sundial, as well as this the live band really added to the atmosphere. The photos taken of the ceremony and reception are very professional and exceeded our expectations - it was very hard to choose so we ended up buying them all!!
I would highly recommend Oludeniz Beach Weddings and Turkey as a destination whether that be for a holiday or wedding. A massive thank you to Rachel for making our day so relaxed and special.
Hotel Meri & Sundial 29-August-2020
Both my bride and I couldn’t not recommend Rachel and her team any higher. Ölüdeniz is an amazing place to get married and the locals are friendly and only too pleased to assist.
We got married 29th August and throughout the lead up Rachel was consistently in touch providing all relevant updates which was all the more difficult due to COVID 19! Despite this and having to change numbers etc… the OBW team were amazing in their accommodation of our requests.
The whole process was managed very smoothly. Our pre-wedding meeting was very thorough and attention to detail very impressive. Legal formalities etc… were well managed.
The wedding itself was faultless, the venues, food preparation all exceptional. I know my wife was full of praise for the care and attention taken by the staff around hair and makeup. She couldn’t have been more pleased. The entertainment was fantastic. Both the live band (who displayed an amazing range of music) and DJ who was very upbeat and got the party started!
Our guests were very complimentary about the service and direction given on the day as were we!
Turkey is an amazing country to get married, good value with amazing people who want nothing more than to make your big day special.
A huge thank you to Rachel and the OBW team for making our day totally enjoyable, stress free and memories that will stay with us forever.
Paradise Beach 10-September-2020
On behalf of Alison and I, I would like to thank Oludeniz Beach Weddings in particular Rachel for all the help we received in planning our wedding in these strange times. I don’t want to make this long as you probably have other things to do We originally booked our wedding for June but due to covid -19 this had to be cancelled, we took a punt and rebooked for September during this period Rachel kept us informed of all the changed that were taking place in Turkey and what this would mean for the wedding. As we have family and friends living in Calis we are frequent visitors to this area and decided it would be a great place to get married. We first considered organising the wedding ourselves but quickly released this would be difficult with the distance and language barriers so looked on the internet for wedding planners, this is where we came across Oludeniz Beach Wedding, as Alison wanted to get married on a beach this seemed the perfect place to start. Prior to the wedding day we were picked up from our rental home and took to the Sea Breeze Hotel where we met Rachel and the team, the decorations, flowers, music and hairdressers were quickly organised with minimal fuss and complete professionalism which was greatly appreciated as we were a bit delicate from the night before. We were then taken to the registry office and on to the hospital for blood tests, having someone there to guide you through the process and translate helps make it less stressful. On the day the Girls all went to Goldfinger and had a great time as the hairdressers helped get the celebrations started. Alison and her girls had the best time getting their hair and makeup done and cannot thank the staff enough for putting them all at ease and also the amazing job they did to make each and every one of the girls & the bride to be look absolutely amazing. The beach and setting was perfect and all timed to coincide with the sun going down to get the sunset photos. We had added the photographer to go with the girls to the hairdressers and Rachel also organised him to continue at the reception as we had organised this ourselves, all the photos turned out great so it no surprise that we bought them all. I think we were expecting an album that you choose your pictures from your special day and then this was made into a wedding album with the pages actually being the photo. However we do appreciate that this is more costly but would be a great option for our wedding day memories.

Our wedding was perfect, this only happened because of Rachel and the team at Oludeniz Beach Weddings.
Initially we had some apprehension as most things are chosen 4 days before the wedding in the pre-wedding meeting (PWM), but as soon as we met with Rachel we were completely put at ease. We quickly realised everything was taken care of and she had thought of things we hadn’t even considered. If you have anything specific you need to have at your wedding then I would recommend your bringing it with your or letting them know in plenty of time, but as we were pretty chill this was not an issue and happily chose from the options provided. They were able to answer all of our emails both whilst in the UK and in Turkey.
We also had an issue with our own photographer and Rachel was able to quickly step in and organise another with only 2 days to go, I honestly believe we could have requested anything and she would have found a way.
On the day the bridal party spent the morning in Goldfinger Hair and beauty salon, I understand why they use this salon. The team made us feel so comfortable and provided an amazing service, we all looked stunning!
Rachel is with you every step of the day and is so attentive, from grabbing bottles of water and adjusting the dress for the photographer to making sure everyone knows where they need to be. I would 100% recommend to anyone to get married in Turkey and to use Oludeniz Beach Weddings, it was truly the best day of our lives.
