Hotel Meri 18-May-2016
We had the most amazing day of our lives in such a wonderful place which we adore. Everything from the location (Meri Resort) to the setup and flowers was amazing and more than we expected. The hair dressers and barbers were all really friendly and welcoming and provided an excellent service.
Photographs and DVD were out of this world and having a drone which took at bird's-eye view snapshot was lovely touch to the end of a lovely day.
We would highly recommend Oludeniz Beach Weddings and Turkey as a destination to make beautiful memories.
We can't thank the Oludeniz Beach Weddings team enough.
Thank you so much for an amazing day, one which we will never, ever, forget

Hi Oludeniz Beach Weddings
First of all may I say thanks again for organising the best day of our lives, it was everything we wanted and more.
Everything went so smoothly, though the marriage official being late tested our perspiration levels, a tad warm to be stood around waiting, not your fault at all. The venue was stunning, the reception was breathtaking and we have memories which will live with us forever.
Attending all meetings was necessary and professionally done, the wedding photos and video are amazing. The live music duo provided were brilliant.
Oludeniz Beach Weddings was so good that we have already recommended it and we have a friend next year James who is using the same company and the same venues. I’m sure they will not be disappointed!
Oludeniz is a beautiful place and the lagoon where we had our service was beautiful. We all felt very safe.
Hotel Meri 04-June-2016
I would just like to say a huge thank you to Rachel and the entire team for making my wedding the most enchanting day I could ever have wished for! My husband and I were completely blown away as were all our family and friends, it was quite literally 'perfect'! I cannot stress how amazing this company is!
From booking my Wedding to the actual day everything was perfect, communication was constant and thorough throughout. The Pre Wedding meeting was extremely well organised and made what I thought would be really difficult decisions very easy! All the legalities were also extremely easy to complete with the team ensuring all preparations were made and complete.
On the actual day, me and my ‘entourage’ were whisked away to a fabulous salon where we were treat like royalty and transformed into absolute beauties, our hair and makeup was quite simply sensational with the best products on the market used! When I actually arrived at the venue both myself and my dad were so blown away by how beautiful the flowers and decorations were that we both cried a little bit!
I have always loved Turkey, I have a villa there so go frequently for holidays, both myself and Gavin were never really bothered about getting married as we didn’t want the stress of organising and all the hype that comes with it, we thought Turkey would be ideal as it’s a lot cheaper than the UK and we could coincide it with a holiday. I thank god every day that we chose to get married in Turkey as I don’t think I could have had such a magnificent wedding anywhere else no matter how much money I spent. My family and friends were absolutely speechless at how stunningly beautiful everything was and how much we actually paid! Turkey is a wonderful place to visit, the people are extremely friendly and cannot do enough for you, I could live there in a heartbeat!
The only advice I would give to future brides is that they let go of the reigns a little bit and let Oludeniz Beach Weddings do what they do and work miracles, trust their judgement and have confidence that your day will be as you’ve always imagined…perfect!
I have recommended Oludeniz Beach Weddings to everyone I know! You were all fantastic and Gavin and I am eternally grateful.
Thanks for everything!
Hotel Meri & Oyster Residence 16-June-2016
To all at Oludeniz Beach Weddings that helped make our wedding day special, thank you!
I honestly could not have asked for a better wedding. My husband and I are truly grateful for all you've done for us.Everything was perfect. When you are trusting strangers to handle your whole wedding, in another country, in a place where you have never been before it's scary. It's the best thing I ever could have done for us.
Everything ran so smoothly, not one glitch. The location is seriously like a dream. The photos do not do it justice. All our guest as were we were amazed by the scenery. I adore my wedding photos, they are gorgeous. I don't know how you guys do it. You made us feel like we were the only people on earth in that moment. From my first email to our last hug goodbye, I will always be eternally grateful.
We felt completely safe and welcomed during our stay in Turkey, we had no trouble at all. The Turkish people are so lovely and happy to see you. We have booked to return to our hotel in Fethiye next July. I just wish we could relive our wedding day while there as well!
Too anyone out there reading this with any doubts…. please believe me when I say you will not regret choosing Oludeniz Beach Weddings for your wedding. They are fantastic, friendly people.
Paradise Beach & Oyster Residence 22-June-2016
We got married with Oludeniz Beach Wedding on Paradise Beach with our reception at Oyster. Fantastic day… we did not need to worry or stress over anything.
Rachel helped and was at ease through it all. It was a perfect day and I would recommend anyone to get married here.
The weather was so hot, although we got married in June the weather was like it is in August! The photos were superb and food and entertainment at Oyster was perfect right to the end of the day!
Thank you so much for a day we won't forget
I would not hesitate recommending Oludeniz Beach Weddings, the whole experience was made stress free thanks to all the team. The booking process was very simple and we arranged to meet with Moira when we were in Turkey 9 months before the wedding to view the wonderful venue of the Sundial in Fethiye.
The communication leading up to the wedding was very helpful and informative. The pre wedding meeting involved meeting the florist and choosing the flowers, I had already checked out the flowers on the website from previous weddings. Then meeting with the manager of Goldfinger salon who made me feel completely at ease and I went onto have hair and makeup trial before the wedding and on the day of the wedding a lovely afternoon of pampering for myself and the bridesmaids.
Following on from the pre wedding meeting we were driven into Fethiye to complete the legal process, yet again it was made very easy and we were well looked after, then returned to our hotel afterwards.
On the day of the wedding everything was so well organised, we were all transferred to the ceremony exactly to the time plan we were given. The resort was all laid out, flowers were absolutely gorgeous and the view from the Sundial is fantastic. The ceremony was perfect, everything that we wished for.
The photographers were great, loved all the photos, hard to choose which ones we wanted. We had booked the ceremony only package but had booked a table at the Sundial restaurant which rounded the day off. We were then transferred back to our hotel at the end of the evening.
We absolutely love coming to Turkey, weather is fantastic, people are so friendly and have always felt perfectly safe and do not feel hassled. We try to come a couple of times a year, if we can, so when we decided to get married Turkey was the obvious choice. I am so pleased that we choose Oludeniz Beach Weddings to arrange our wedding, it was perfect and we cannot thank them enough.
Many thanks to you all.
Yacht Classic 30-June-2016
We married with Oludeniz Beach Weddings at Yacht Classic Hotel in June of this year. Firstly I want to say how easy everything was with the organisation and selection of what we could have for our wedding day.
The choices of cakes and flower designs are brilliant and certainly something for everyone's wedding theme and styling.
We chose the Yacht Classic hotel as it is our previous holiday destination and it certainly did not disappoint!
Although there was much media speculation about global terror attacks at the time of our June wedding, this made absolutely no impact on our wedding day and did not stop us nor Oludeniz Beach Weddings in making sure everything went perfectly.
I would highly recommend this company and the area for the most beautiful wedding locations, suppliers and tourism.
Hotel Meri 15-July-2016
Would just like to say a massive thank you to the whole team at Oludeniz Beach Weddings for making our day so special. From the day we booked the wedding the help and support was fantastic, with step by step help to ensure everything was in place from our end and nothing was too much trouble for them. The day itself was spectacular and glitch free thanks to the efforts put in by the team and we really can't thank you enough... so I would just like to pass on my experiences for those who are thinking of booking a wedding in turkey....
From the moment we walked into the office 12 months before our wedding day and having spoken to other companies we knew this was the team that could make our day and had no hesitation in booking with them there and then. The booking process is so easy that we didn't actually realise we had done it. From that moment on the team were constantly in touch and if we had a question our emails were answered within hours or if we called, the office called us straight back in order that no costs were incurred by us. We were even given step by step instructions for carrying out the minimal paperwork we had to complete here in the UK.
We arrived in turkey a week before our big day and everything was just magical. The pre wedding meeting was actually fun to do with everyone present in order to arrange flowers, photography, makeup etc… and again the hardest part was actually choosing what we wanted from the massive choices we were offered. From here we were taken into Fethiye where all the legal processes were completed within 2 hours and after being treated to a coffee we were transported back to our hotel.
Once the big day arrived we were collected and taken off to the beauty salon where the hair and makeup for myself and my bridesmaids was nothing short of Hollywood style. The photographer stuck by us through all this and was even on hand to catch us all getting ready.
The transport for all our 30 plus guests was on hand to get us down to the Meri resort where once we arrived everyone was astounded by how beautiful the venue had been decorated for us and the flowers on display were just out of this world. The ceremony itself was fantastic and made so simple with the team on hand to make sure everything ran perfectly. From the Meri, all of our guests were taken back to our reception venue whilst myself and my new husband were whisked off to have the most amazing photos taken on the beach at sunset before being taken back to the reception which again had been dressed with flowers and decorations that were just out of this world. Once again, the photographer was on hand to capture every moment and in total we were presented not only with a video of our ceremony but with a total of over 1300 photographs to choose from.
Turkey has to be the most beautiful destination in the world and we are both honored to have had the opportunity to have its stunning scenery in our wedding photographs and to have spent our honeymoon in a place where nothing is too much trouble for the locals who will always treat you like royalty.
If your reading this and are seriously considering getting married in Turkey then this is the place to be and the team to make your day one you will never forget... and all at a cost that is roughly the same as we were quoted for just a professional photographer in the UK.
You certainly know it's special when my husbands attitude changed from … I will never get married… to… I would do it all again tomorrow!
Once again thank you to all at Oludeniz Beach Weddings who made our special day one that we and all our guests will never ever forget.
All the best.
I am a natural worrier. Countless nights of sleep were lost prior to the wedding. Was my dress too big? Would it be too hot? How should I wear my hair? In hindsight, what strikes me, even now, is actually how little I actually had to worry about!
All contact prior to the wedding was efficient and professional. Any questions (and there were a few) were replied to almost immediately. From the moment we entered the pre wedding meeting, any lingering concerns disappeared. The professionalism and knowledge demonstrated by all staff put me completely at ease and I knew, unequivocally, that my wedding was in great hands.
The day itself was wonderful. The bridesmaids had a great time at the salon, the guests were awed by the venue (Sundial) and the food was fantastic. Our cake was an exact replica of the picture we provided and the live music was perfect.
Some of my guests were a little apprehensive about holidaying in Turkey, some even dropped out. But all regretted their decision when our guests returned home singing the praises of the Turkish people, the culture and the cuisine. Never once did we feel unsafe.
Thank you Oludeniz Beach Weddings for taking care of everything, for easing any concerns and for not panicking when we unknowingly handed you an empty memory stick!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to potential brides and grooms.
Hotel Meri & Oyster Residence 17-August-2016
We got married on August 17th 2016 and received world class treatment from everyone involved in the planning and organization, to the hair stylists, photographers, entertainment and especially Rachel and the team. The whole team made sure that our special day ran smoothly and according to plan.
The decisions that were to be made at the planning meetings were easy and stress free because of the wide range of options and resources provided. Also the dedication and personal treatment over a period of 4-5 days was fantastic... much more than we could have ever expected. Nothing was too much trouble. We would highly recommend OBW's in Turkey and wouldn't change our day for the world. Thank you again Rachel and the team.
Hotel Meri & Sundial 24-August-2016
We got married on 24th August 2016 at the Meri Resort overlooking the blue lagoon followed by a reception at the Sundial Restaurant. What can I say…the whole day was absolutely amazing.
The planning and detail that had gone into our special day by Oludeniz Beach Weddings – from booking it through Moira, discussing details with Rachel and then having Tracy with us throughout our special day – was simply just amazing. All the stress was taken out of planning the wedding and on the day itself, both venues were decorated beautifully and exactly how we imagined them to be. I know people say this all the time, but it was the most amazing and memorable day for us both and we thank Oludeniz Beach Weddings for this.
My husband and I booked a stunning villa in Hisaranu for two weeks for our wedding. The locals were very friendly, we had a lovely guy who came from the market nearby to see if would like anything, we ordered and it was back with us within the hour, couldn’t do enough for us. The restaurants and shops were all friendly too, I was a bit apprehensive before I came out to Turkey but within a day I felt like I was at home. Turkey will always be our second home and I for one will carry on visiting.
Hotel Meri & Sea Breeze Hotel 31-August-2016
We cannot recommend Oludeniz Beach Weddings enough... from when we booked to when we arrived the communication was fab! My many, many emails were answered straight away and they couldn't help me enough!
The pre wedding meeting was all arranged before we arrived and everything was explained – from the major to the little details. We brought a suitcase full of wedding favors decorations etc… and they all looked amazing on the day. The wedding day itself couldn't have gone better. Rachel made me feel calm and that everything was in place. She phoned me the morning of the wedding, made sure I ate breakfast and anything else I wanted, she was there, no problem at all!! The transport was all on time and picked up my guests from different locations with no problems at all. All the arrangements from the flowers to the venue were amazing… so many intimate details and my wedding guests couldn't praise them enough!!! The pictures were all so amazing we got them all (1300 in total!). Each and every one of the staff were amazing.
Turkey is a fantastic place – we had 70-80 guests all of whom had the most perfect fun filled holiday and loved the wedding – all commented to say it was the best wedding they had ever been to!
It was absolutely perfect from start to finish, Oludeniz Beach Weddings cannot do enough for you – they are a fab and friendly team! Thank you so, so much… we wish we could do it all over again!! xxx
Paradise Beach & Sundial 09-September-2016
Our Wedding in September was definitely the most amazing day of our lives. I speak for both me and Dan when I say it would not of been possible if it hadn’t been for the ladies at Oludeniz Beach Weddings. We really did put our day in their hands trusting them with every detail and I have to say I cannot thank them enough. Not only did they provide the most amazing setting they made sure every guest was catered for in every way especially in the heat! The kids were spoilt and my Grandma made to feel like the head of the family. I felt like I had to do nothing but sit back and enjoy my day with my new husband.
The beach was quite possibly to most beautiful beach we could of hoped for and the venue just perfect for our day. As we hadn’t seen the venue until the wedding day we really had to rely on the knowledge of those at Oludeniz Beach Weddings to guide us to the right space and they were spot on. The food was amazing (still being talked out) the music was perfect and words cannot describe the view!!!!
When I talk to friends who have got married in the UK they tell me how stressful it was and how they don’t remember any of their day and it saddens me because my day was perfect! Because of the efforts made by the team I felt completely relaxed and enjoyed every second and feel like I can remember every bit if I shut my eyes, it almost felt like a dream until I realised it was real! All our guests are still talking about how much they want to go back to Oludeniz and Hisanronu as they had the best holiday/wedding they have ever been to. Friends have even said ‘I wish I had got married like you did’.
There is no doubt in my mind that me and my husband (had to get that in somewhere haha) will be back to renew our vowels someday but until then we will pop in hopefully in September 2017 to say hello whilst on our holiday.
Thank you to every one you made our dream a reality.
Liberty Lykia World 10-September-2016
We got married on the 10th September 2016, through Oludeniz Beach Weddings at the Liberty Lykia Hotel. Where do I begin with this review? It was the best day of my life. I know that is very cliche, but it was everything I dreamed of and more. From the initial discussions around booking the wedding to the time we had our final meeting collecting our photos, the team could not have been more helpful. I will apologise in advance for the long review, but I thought I would let you know my experience of the whole wedding process.
I was a little concerned when I was first considering Turkey as a wedding destination around who I should use to help with planning the big day, especially with it being in a foreign country and potentially an issue with language barriers. As soon as I contacted Oludeniz Beach Weddings they put me straight at ease, they all speak fluent English and were upfront with all the packages and costs and were very flexible in adapting the package to our needs. Moira was very helpful in arranging our booking and she phoned me to sort out all the details and answered all my queries before we booked. I understand that for many people putting down a significant deposit to a company abroad can be quite scary, let me reassure you that you are in safe hands with this company.
After we booked we received a full itinerary of how the day would be planned out so we knew everything from the start. During the preparation stages we were in regular contact with the team and Rachel was always on hand to ease my pre-wedding nerves with a quick email reply. Throughout we received regular emails around the legal process and what we needed to do before we arrived. We also received loads of emails for different wedding ideas including cakes, flowers, hair, make-up, hangings, table decorations etc… and also what items they stocked and what you needed to bring with you.
When we arrived in Turkey we had our pre-wedding meeting and met Tracy and Erdinc who were our fantastic wedding organisers. At this meeting they went through all the fine details of the day including guests, meal plan, music, we also met the florist and the salon manager at GoldFinger (who I also cannot recommend enough). We then went to their lovely stock room and selected our table decorations (which were beautiful). We were then taken to Fethiye by their driver who helped us sort out the final legal bits in the registry office and taken home.
I opted for the salon trial, which I am so glad I did. They, again, could not have been more helpful whether it was just hair and make-up or an extra massage, manicure, pedicure, eyelash extensions, nothing was too much trouble. When I arrived at the salon on the morning of the wedding with my bridal party they made my morning very relaxed and special. I also opted for the extra prep photos and met the photographer at the salon who was fantastic.
After being pampered all morning we were taken back to our hotel to get ready. While getting ready our flowers arrived (which were stunning) and we had a few more family photos before being taken to our venue. We were greeted by Tracy and Erdinc, who had already sorted out my groom, and then supported me. At this point we met our videographer who captured day. The service was beautiful and although it was in both Turkish and English it was lovely and somehow felt personal, after some more photos we went to the reception which was decorated to perfection. The a la carte menu was fantastic and the wedding cake not only looked amazing but tasted fantastic too.
We had a couple of blips with some of our guests being concerned about the current political climate and safety in this area. Please can I reassure you that we were totally oblivious of any trouble and we felt like we were a million miles away. To end, I cannot thank the team enough they were fantastic and I would highly recommend this company to anyone thinking of getting married abroad.
Paradise Beach & Sundial 16-September-2016
My husband and I would like to say a massive thank you to Tracey, Rachel and the rest of the team at Oludeniz Beach Weddings who made our wedding day an amazing day to remember. Two months on and our guests are still talking about it!
Paradise Beach is an amazing setting for a wedding and we have some stunning sunset photos. The staff and food at Sundial were amazing, our guests didn't realise that the first time they were called up it was just the starters and the main BBQ food was yet to come.
We never had any reservations about getting married in Turkey as we've been there several times before and would highly recommend it as a venue, the people are so friendly - to the point where we were having photos taken on the beach with the locals - we felt like celebrities!
Oludeniz Beach Weddings have a great team and take care of everything and we'd highly recommend.
Hotel Meri 22-September-2016
Mike and I have been holidaying in Oludeniz for the last 8 years and were both smitten with the place from day one, so there was little hesitation in deciding that this would be our wedding destination. We knew that numbers would be reduced as not all our family and friends would be able to make it but we ended up with a party of 20 odd plus some Turkish friends we have gained over our many visits to the area. I started to research the various companies providing wedding services in the area and in a short space of time I chose Oludeniz Beach Weddings – a good decision as it turned out.
We chose the ceremony only as we had another venue in mind for the evening reception. From the outset I found it extremely simple to organise, the whole process was very professional, communication was swift and informative – from my initial contact with Moira by phone (at the exact time we had agreed upon!) until the ceremony itself. Booking and payment processes were simple and contact by email was again reassuring, helpful and replies were swift – thank you Rachel.
Arrangements were made for our pre wedding meeting where paperwork photos etc… were exchanged and we met our translator and such things as flowers, hair/makeup, decor and any other requirements finalized. I have to say the gentleman who turned up to discuss hair was lovely and we all had a great time at the salon (Goldfinger). As far as flowers go, we all have an idea of what we would like but regarding colour you may have to make slight concessions/ adjustments, as the exact colours you want may not be available (we were informed of this in advance in fairness). Having done all the donkey work in England, we were taken to Fethiye to complete the remaining legal paperwork which took very little time considering the number of different offices we visited. The whole process was totally stress free thanks to our escort.
As for the actual wedding day – well what can I say, everything ran like clockwork. Nothing was too much trouble, pick-ups for hairdressers and barbers were bang on time as were all other transfers. My hair is short so not much preparation there but my two bridesmaids have long hair and after a little discussion as to what I had in mind and a visit to the makeup team, they looked beautiful. The venue was stunning but then how can it not be in such a beautiful place. Chairs were nicely set out and the gazebo looked really pretty. The gardens were well maintained and the lagoon and surrounding mountains provided a stunning back drop.
Our photographer was simply superb! Our photos were stunning – a total of 638 in all and every one of them beautiful. Choosing 50 was difficult and we ultimately ended up with the whole lot. This will cost you extra but worth every penny and I guarantee you will do the same. There was also a video included and this too was quite beautifully done. We were in receipt of them all less than a week later… try that in the UK!!
I would recommend Oludeniz Beach Weddings to any bride looking for a beautiful, laid back, friendly destination with friendly locals, stunning scenery and a fabulous place to holiday. We had in our party two octogenarians and a few people who had never traveled to Turkey before and had in the past voiced a slight reluctance to do so.... they are now planning to join us for our anniversary celebrations in Oludeniz next year.
My wife and I were married at the Sundial Otel in October this year (2016). Having spent our previous holiday at The Sea Breeze Hotel in Hisaronu and getting to know the wonderful staff there the choice was easy. After contacting Rachel at Oludeniz Beach Weddings by email it couldn't have been simpler. Rachel provided us with all the information we needed and explained the legalisation aspects perfectly. Pretty much all we had to do thereafter was turn up in Turkey and watch the professionals take over. Rachel, Tracey and the rest of the organisation took over.
We were chauffeured everywhere we needed to go with an English speaking driver. All the wedding arrangements, photographer, video, flowers, hair dressers, make up, cakes, decorations were all there for us to choose and the finalised plans took about 2 hours. They even provided us with our witnesses so small was our wedding party.
Our wedding day, ceremony and reception went off without a hitch and have to say was pretty much PERFECT.
We can't thank Rachel, Tracey and everyone at Oludeniz Beach Weddings, the Sundial Otel and especially at The Sea Breeze enough. A perfect wedding and a perfect holiday.
