Firstly, Darren and I would like to thank everyone for what truly was the most magical day for us. Please find our testimonial below:
We can honestly say that our wedding day was the most fantastic day/night because of all the efforts of everyone involved from start to finish. Right from the outset, communication was great which helped us feel relaxed and organised once we had arrived in Turkey. We never felt overwhelmed by the booking process or initial communication and always felt reassured that everything was being taken care of.
Once arriving in Turkey the superb service just continued. My hair and make up was done by the team at Goldfinger, which I can't recommend highly enough.
We have been going to turkey on holiday for the last 5 years so to be able to get married there was very special. We highly recommend the Sundial as a wedding venue. The views are stunning, especially at sunset. Everyone there was so accommodating and our guests were able to have a thoroughly enjoyable experience because of this. It was so good that neither the guests or the DJ wanted the night to end!
We would especially like to thank Tracy, who was amazing on the day and made sure everything run smoothly and went to plan. Every detail, including the flowers, cake, car and the food was absolutely perfect. To anyone who was considering getting married, then this is the place! Can't fault anything!
Thank you all again. We will be returning next year to celebrate our 1st anniversary at the Sundial.
Paradise Beach & Oyster Residence 21-May-2018
Booking our wedding abroad was at first a nerve wrecking thing to do but we are so so glad we went with our instincts! Rachel and her team are fantastic, nothing is too much and emailing back and forth I got a great idea of how the day would be structured. Meeting with Rachel and Tracy before the wedding and sorting all details of colours and flowers and table decorations etc was an absolute breeze. On the day itself everything ran like clockwork... in fact everyone laughs at how my wedding was the only thing Iv never been late to... even though it’s traditional to be late ha.
The hair and beauty team, well what can I say... AMAZING! Me and my girls have never looked so good!! My hair was out of this world!! A piece of advice... don’t bother having a practice in the UK because I wasted money doing that, just have a practice in Turkey and i have no doubts you will get the hairstyle of your dreams and more!! The atmosphere was amazing it really was the perfect way to spend the morning of the wedding!
The wedding Cars arrived decorated beautifully and the air con had been running thank god! Flowers were handed out and they were absolutely gorgeous! I can’t believe the amount of flowers we had from the bouquets to the flower arch and table piece.
The ceremony ran like clockwork, we had some family members sing us down the aisle but Rachel and her team were great at helping to organise this. Kidrak beach was the perfect choice for our ceremony. I still watch my video and cry at how beautiful everything is!
Oyster residence was our choice of venue for the reception and they did not disappoint! The food was amazing! Steak on my wedding day... perfect!! The hotel manager was a lovely man he gave me a key to a room I could use for bathroom facilities as he didn’t want me in the public loo with my white dress. How kind!!
We danced all night long with the belly dancer and then dj. I never wanted the day to end! I wish it was wedding Monday every Monday!!
Thankfully we have wonderful video and photos to look back on, we bought the whole photo package and it was a great choice!
Without a doubt if I had to do it all again... (maybe 10 years from now my husband will let me renew our vows haha)... it would be Oludeniz weddings all the way!!
Hotel Meri & Sea Breeze Hotel 24-May-2018
I have literally just arrived back home from Turkey and wanted to review this company whilst it was all still fresh in my mind! This company are fantastic. Erdinç and his team are incredible. From the very beginning emails back and forth to Rachel (who is absolutely amazing) regarding the wedding accommodation and transfers was great.
We married on the 24th May and everything we wanted and asked for was arranged immaculately. They even sourced me personal roses so that I could have my tables as I dreamed of.
From our arrival as guests to planning arrangements everything was flawless. The pre wedding meeting, was done professionally and felt very relaxed, everything we asked for was handled well and the team showed great understanding of what we wanted.
The legal aspect was dealt with really well with Mustafa driving us around and dealing with our paper work, he is a real gentleman.
The big day itself was run and organised like a military operation I didn't have to worry about a thing!!! My bridal team loved their hair and make-up and it was a wonderful experience. My dress needed steaming and the guys shirts needed a press, this was taken care of without any difficulty and promptly. Transport was on time and vehicles clean tidy and correct for my guest numbers.
When we arrived at the Meri for our ceremony it was stunning, my flowers were beautiful my colours and decor exact, the service itself was very easy and straight forward all personalisation maintained including the 2 readings we had from family members, the music we asked for was done in time and correctly played, the photographer was amazing!!
Once back to our reception which we had at the Sea Breeze, Tracey had it all under control and everything was in place and looked beautiful, our own personal musician was catered to as required. Table lay out was exactly as wanted and our cake was perfect. The service and food was next level. We had a belly dancer as entertainment and she was fantastic such good fun! We partied long into the night and were even catered to after leaving the Sea Breeze, nothing was too much trouble!
Our photographs and wedding video are brilliant... in quality and quantity. Lots of shots to choose from (we bought them all anyway as we couldn't decide). My only negative was that the day went too fast and I want to do it all again! Ha. If you are looking for a wedding team to make your day everything you dreamed of... look no further! Oludeniz Beach Weddings can give you everything you desire and more! Thank you OBW for such a wonderful day and experience you will forever have a special place in our hearts xx
Hotel Meri & Oyster Residence 01-June-2018
My partner and I got married in Oludeniz on 1st June 2018. We had our ceremony at Meri Resort followed by a reception at Oyster Residence. We can’t thank Oludeniz Beach Weddings enough, they took the stress out of planning the big day, everything was perfect.
Rachel was our pre-wedding contact, she kept in touch regularly leading up to the wedding and made sure we had everything we needed before we arrived in Turkey, no question was too big or a silly question, she really took the worry out of getting married abroad. Tracey then took us through our pre-wedding meeting, making all of the final arrangements from the cake, to flowers and table decorations, she even stayed with us for the whole day, ensuring everything went smoothly.
The ceremony location was idyllic. Turkey has received some bad press recently but looking over the crystal-clear lagoon with the sun shining, there’s no place we’d have rather been and all of our guests commented on how beautiful it was.
Food at Oyster Residence was amazing! We would definitely recommend the sautéed prawn starter but you can’t really go wrong with anything you choose as it was all so tasty and the staff couldn’t do more for us. We opted for a DJ who got the party started and the belly dancer was a real treat for the girls and boys alike, she was fantastic and got everyone on their feet.
All in all, we couldn’t be happier with our experience and couldn’t believe how easy the whole process was from paying our deposit to collecting our marriage certificate at the end of our holiday. The only advise I’d give to potential brides and grooms is to keep an open mind. Take ideas with you but be open to the ideas of the team as they really are expert in what they do and know what will and won’t work for you. Consider buying personal extras locally to avoid taking up baggage space/weight and potential damages in transit (a few of our candles broke in our case). Also, plan for the unexpected costs, the Affidavits to be witnessed and then signed off, the make-up and hair trials (MAC makeup is an extra cost), and service charges for food (although optional).
Our only negative was that we wish it had lasted longer! We wish we could do it all over again! We would definitely recommend Oludeniz as a wedding resort and would 100% recommend this company.
Thank you Rachel, Tracey and the whole team at Oludeniz Beach Weddings xxx
Paradise Beach 06-June-2018
We had an absolutely perfect wedding and time in Turkey and thanks from the bottom of my heart for making that happen.
Booking process was simple and easy. Found you on Facebook and looked at the website and testimonials. We went with you due to having paradise (kidrak) beach as a location mainly, but also very good reviews and seemed professional. Booking was so easy as we had email communication and a telephone call which was reassuring to have an actual discussion. Payment made and then the excitement started!!!!
Communication before arriving here in Turkey was very good. We received regular updates via email, particularly nearer the time. I also called on one occasion with some really silly questions and they were dealt with understanding. Good information was given also about what was required.
Our pre wedding meeting was an excellent meeting. It was the first face to face contact which really made it feel real and put us at ease. Lovely people who were very very helpful.
Legal processes - I felt you explained very clearly what was required this end. I was still a bit unsure when I arrived and although it was talked about at the pwm i was still a bit confused on the days before and after wedding when we went to sort out the legal process. During those days due to language barriers no one explained what was happening and as a control freak that was something I struggled with a wee bit. However it did go very smoothly and we left Turkey without legal wedding certificates and family book. The system also was very professional and completed to a high standard, I just like to know exactly what is going on! However following our driver round with trust went completely fine!
Flowers were beautiful but there were limited choice compared to the photo I brought which was sourced off your Facebook page. Transfers were amazing - always on time and very nice people. I loved my hair and makeup too, great salon. However I felt it needs to be better explained that the package is for basic makeup and mac costs extra. Also that a trial is not included so I still had additional costs I had not factored in. Similarly with the Barbour, we had to pay extra to get Stephens head shaved in addition to facial hair. He liked It bit felt when he went to another one later in the week it was better.
The ceremony was perfect. The location and decor were more than we could have imagined. We were very grateful to Erdinc and Tracy as witnesses and also Erdinc (and his son!) for choosing our music. The official was lovely. We felt that everyone was really there and present with us but also gave us space. We loved everything about it. The photographer was also brilliant, directing is but giving us time and space and he has caught some wonderful personal moments.
Although we didn't have a reception per se, being able to go to sundial worked out perfectly that it was as seamless as if you had planned our reception there. A beautiful location that I would recommend. Thanks so much for linking in and making that work.
Overall service and impressions in addition to any advice for future brides - the service was 100%. I think you are all very professional people doing a wonderful job. We had such a relaxed wedding day and ceremony and I'm sure part of that was knowing everything was in hand. I could not fault any part. My advice to brides would be to go for it! And with regards to the legal processes if you are a control freak like me, just don't worry and follow your driver as he knows what he is doing! Olu Deniz beach weddings will make your dreams come true.
Turkey as a holiday / wedding destination - amazing. My favourite place in the world. Olu Deniz has been a long-standing favourite holiday destination and we cannot wait to explore more of Turkey now as it has a very special place in our hearts!
Liberty Lykia World 18-June-2018
We stayed at Sentido Lykia Resort & Spa 9th-23rd July 2018. Our Wedding was at Liberty Hotels Lykia on the 18th June 2018.
We booked it through Oludeniz Beach Weddings after having an awful time with Thomas Cook Weddings and having to cancel with them. Moira from the start was great and handled everything efficiently and professionally and I felt totally at ease and began to look forward to everything for the 1st time.
Once the booking and deposit were confirmed, Rachel became our dedicated Wedding Planner. Rachel would update us regularly with all the information we needed and more. There were links to wedding pages, tips, ideas and plenty of advice.
Vicky at Bits and Bobs in Fethiye, Turkey is fantastic, Rachel put me in touch with her when a very well-known UK online Supplier let me down at the very last minute. Thank you so much Vicky.
Everything to do with the Wedding was all sorted out at the PWM (Pre Wedding Meeting) on the 11th. This consisted of meeting Rachel, Erdinc and Tracy to go through the package in detail, to choose flowers, cake, sash's, tea lights etc. We took photos of bouquets and cakes and everything was all handled extremely professionally but we felt very relaxed. Mustafa our designated driver took us to Fethiye to get the paperwork done, again everything just went so efficiently. The whole process took just 4 hours and then we went back to enjoying our holiday.
The whole team have been doing this for years and love what they do, they know everything inside out and this gives you the opportunity to just 'go with the flow'.
I had the hair and make-up trial and Bayram and his team at Goldfinger Hair, Nails & Beauty were all amazing. They certainly beat any UK Salon I have ever been to. At my trial Bayram & his team were so friendly and patient but very professional and give everything they do 100%. I went with photo's to give ideas of what I wanted and was so happy with the whole experience.
On the Wedding day everything went as planned, I never stopped smiling. The transfers, being pampered at the salon, the Groom and Groomsmen also being pampered at Best Barber, which they all highly rated, my dress and the suits being steamed and pressed, the photographer (we opted for him to be with us from 11am for an extra charge) it just all went fantastically. Erdinc, Rachel and Tracy took care of everything at the ceremony, ensuring we had water and not rushing us, they really were the best organisers. For the reception Tracy and Erdinc stayed until the end to ensure everything still went as planned and it did. The venue was beautifully decorated, the live musicians were lovely. The food was very nice and the Wedding cake really was the best tasting cake ever!!! We paid extra for a fire dancer and he was definitely the star of the evening, thank you for your great performance.
The photos and video are brilliant, we bought the full package so have nearly 900 photos in total, the photographer was really good and was not intrusive at all, just a really nice guy.
All of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have been to, and this was all down to the amazing location and the organisation by our Wedding planners. Turkey is a beautiful Country and is full of wonderful, hard working people and we appreciate all that Erdinc and his team did for us.
When we renew our vows, we will choose Oludeniz Beach Weddings to work their magic again.
Thank you for all, for our personalised, professional and perfect Wedding, we cannot wait to relive it all again xxx
Hotel Meri & Sundial 29-June-2018
Me and my husband got married at the Meri Resort and then had the reception at Sundial on the 29th June 2018.
If anybody is having any doubts or uncertainties about booking with Olu Deniz Beach weddings then don’t, we had an absolutely amazing day, from first booking the wedding to receiving our wedding photos the whole process was easy, flawless and it all ran smoothly and exceeded all our expectations. We first visited Olu Deniz 3 years ago and we loved the place, we always knew we wanted to get married abroad and after visiting here we soon realised that this is the place we wanted to get married.
After doing some research, I came across Olu Deniz Beach Weddings and they by far stood out from all the over companies, the information on their website was clear, their venues looked amazing, their photos were incredible and most importantly their reviews were brilliant and now I can see why. After contacting Olu Deniz Beach Weddings and discussing the various packages with Moira, we decided to book the ceremony at Meri Resort on the lovely Blue Lagoon then the reception at Sundial with the most amazing views over Fethiye. Sundial came highly recommended from various people so we knew when this was an option that we had to choose here.
You would think that booking a wedding abroad would be stressful but Rachel took all this stress away. The communication before the wedding was spot on, Rachel sent us clear emails letting us know about documentation required, decorations, witnesses, meeting and appointment dates, hair and beauty and photography. If we had any questions then Rachel was very quick with her responses and nothing was too much trouble. The legal process and documentation was explained in detail and was clear to understand.
We arrived in Turkey 1 week before the wedding and had our pre wedding meeting a few days later. In the meeting with Erdinc and Tracy, we discussed everything we had in our package in detail, finalising everything from flowers, table decorations, table plan, A la carte requirements, timings for the wedding day, transport requirements, hair and beauty trials, cake choice, photography and wedding playlists. We was then taken to Fethiye by their friendly driver to register our intent to marry and was returned to our hotel.
Me and the bridal party visited Goldfinger, the hair and beauty salon for a hair and make-up trial and had several beauty treatments, all the staff made us extremely welcome, we all had fun and the quality of the service was outstanding, I just knew that everything was going to be perfect on the wedding day.
The wedding day arrived and everything ran as smooth as possible, the bridal party went to Goldfinger and all had a brilliant time, coming away extremely satisfied and excited for the day ahead. The grooms party visited a local barbers were they all had Turkish shaves and head and neck massages, they all thoroughly enjoyed this experience and had a great laugh.
The attention to detail and service we received on the wedding day was exceptional, timings were perfect, the venues, decorations, flowers and wedding cake were all beautiful and the live music played after the ceremony and at the reception made it a great atmosphere. The food was tasty and delicious and the Turkish belly dancer really made the evening and led it into a great night.
Including me and my husband and daughter we had 82 guests that attended the wedding, each and every one of them had a brilliant day and have all commented on how amazing it was. If you are thinking about booking with them then you will not be disappointed.
Thank you to all the staff at Olu Deniz Beach Weddings, you really did make our wedding day the most amazing and unforgettable day xxx
Paradise Beach & Sundial 07-July-2018
Booking our wedding was relatively straight forward and easy. I sent in an email expressing interest and was sent back a variety of different packages, costs and questions around my select date/dates. The advisor I spoke with was extremely helpful and gave me advice and tips and allowed me to be flexible with the package by adding and removing items. I booked my wedding 2 years in advance, but they would definitely be able to accommodate a shorter timescale.
In the lead up to the wedding I received emails OBW and as we got closer to the season starting the communication became more regular, giving advice of what we needed to bring with us to Turkey and what we needed to do in the UK. I found Rachel extremely responsive when messaging her about any queries and she was more than happy to help - even when I was asking her to resend previous information as I’d lost it amongst other things!
Our PWM was perfect, at first I didn’t really know what to expect, as the setup is different to the UK in terms of the run up to the wedding! We were at the offices in Hisaronu for around 2 hours. We met Rachel, Tracey and the owner of the business, we went through absolutely everything from how the day would run, to what cake we wanted, picking our centre pieces, chair sashes.
came away from the meeting feeling so excited and confident that the team knew what they were doing and everything would run smoothly on the day! The team were flexible, I got married in early July thinking it would be lovely warm weather but Turkey had a heatwave this year with temperatures over 40 degrees. OBW suggested that we push everything back by 1 hour to ensure we and our guests would be as comfortable as possible! That is definitely not something you would get in the UK!
The legal processes takes a bit of time but again was really straight forward once in Turkey. We just followed the driver around and whilst we were waiting at the registry office, he took our passports and went off to complete part of the process without us to speed things up! I completely forgot to take passport photos out to Turkey with me, so they arranged to take us to a photography shop to get these done ahead of our appointment with the registry office.
I had originally taken ‘hair & make up’ for myself and the bridesmaids out of my package but decided to add this back in at my PWM. The salon owner and team were absolutely fantastic, we went for our trial and also had make up trials. Overall myself, my two bridesmaids, my mum and mother in law, along with my nan and 2 guests all had hair and makeup done at Goldfinger. Everything exceeded my expectations and was just perfect… I was so happy!
I picked my flowers during my PWM and went for all white. My bouquet was a larger version of my bridesmaids which were all roses, the bouquets had started to wilt a little bit by the time I arrived and the ceremony was due to get started, but I think this was down to the heat on the day. The table flowers were lovely!
Transfers are a great addition to the package and something you probably wouldn’t of thought about ahead of getting there. All of my guests were catered for in a large mini bus and a car arrived to take me and my dad after the guest. The bridal car had the best aircon and cooled me down before the ceremony, when speaking to the guests the aircon on the buses could of been a little better - however like I said this was exceptional heat for the time of year.
Our ceremony & reception venues blew me away, just wow! The set up on the beach is exactly how it’s pictured on Facebook but the views around are just stunning and when you get there you just want to stand and look around. The Sundial, is such an amazing venue, beautiful views over Fethiye, down into the sea, gorgeous colours lighting up the sky from the sun going down! The gardens and the lights around the pool make it seem so calm and elegant! Our wedding seemed to overrun slightly so not only had we already pushed our whole wedding back an hour, the restaurant and DJ agreed to stay open a further hour as we overran with speeches etc… again something you would never get in the UK especially not at any extra cost!!!
The food was exceptional, delicious, served quickly just lovely! The only thing I would do differently is change it from a 3 course meal to a 2 course meal, as they then serve wedding cake along with the dessert - most of the desserts got left. The wedding cake was lovely too!
Photography was excellent value for money. Choosing the photos that came in our album was so hard!!! Even though we bought them all, those initial 50 took us ages as there were so many great shots! The photos were delivered to the hotel the day after we had selected them, which was great!
I can honestly say my wedding exceeded my expectations and was absolutely everything I wanted and more.
Many of my guests were saying it was one of or the best weddings they have ever been too. If anyone came to me and we’re undecided about going abroad I would recommend it 100%, you get so much more than you do in the UK and Oludeniz Beach Weddings made the experience for us, one we will never forget!
Thank you again for everything you did for us on our wedding day! It truly was perfect!
From arriving in Goldfinger in the afternoon things went smoothly and according to plan. Bayram was amazing, all the girls felt special, me included.
The ceremony at Sundial was beautiful and the flowers and decoration were perfect. Tracey was fantastic and very attentive. The reception food was fantastic and the venue absolutely stunning.
We could not have wished for a better day. It was perfect and we thank you all at Oludeniz Beach Weddings and everyone who helped make the day so wonderful. We have the best memories and would definitely recommend the company and all parties included in the future. Thank you!
Paradise Beach 30-July-2018
We are not long back from an amazing two weeks in Turkey. The highlight of which was our wedding, expertly organised by the team at Oludeniz Beach Weddings!
From the moment I first got in touch with Rachel via email it couldn't have run more smoothly. They made everything seem so easy, I never thought arranging a wedding in another country could be so stress free, literally all I had to do was answer a few emails and sort out the paperwork in England. Everything else was done/arranged by them.
Arriving in Turkey and meeting with the team was just as easy, you get picked up and dropped off everywhere to do the few bits that need doing. Meeting Tracy, Rachel and Erdinc at the pre wedding meeting was great as they put us at ease and any minor worries I may have had were smoothed away.
It was lovely getting my hair and make-up done at Goldfinger, I would recommend the salon very highly. I felt amazing once they worked their magic!
We then got married on Paradise Beach on a beautiful July evening. It was perfect, everything we were hoping for and more. The ceremony was lovely, Tracy was a star, we were on cloud nine and I think I still might be there! The photographer was also brilliant, he didn't stop for a minute and we've got so many beautiful photos to remember our special day.
So a massive thank you to everyone involved, we couldn't have done it without you and you made our day one we'll always treasure and remember
With lots of love from Mr & Mrs Sawyer xx
Sugar Beach Gardens 03-August-2018
Me and my husband got married on the 3rd August and honestly it was better than we could ever have imagine.
Oludeniz Beach Weddings made everything so easy and explained everything fully. All the emails were extremely helpful and they explained everything we would need to bring with us for the wedding and all the legal stuff.
Once we arrived in Turkey we had a pre wedding meeting where we went through the run-down of the day and picked all the details we wanted (flowers, table decorations, music etc) me and my husband were quite relaxed about the wedding and the wonderful ladies helped us decide on all the little details! All the staff made it so easy and it never felt like it took too much time out of our holiday. Mustafa (the driver) then took us to Fethiye to sort all the legal things out (he was fantastic)
The wedding day ran so smoothly... the girls got their hair and makeup done, the boys had Turkish shaves, all the guest were picked up on time and taken to the venue... all the guests commented about how smooth everything was. The ceremony and reception were amazing - great food and we danced the night away!
Our wedding was the best day - we would not have changed a thing! (And all the wedding photos look incredible!)
Thank you to all the wonderful team for making our wedding such an amazing day!!
