Now is just the right time to celebrate life, share a laughter and enjoy the precious moments of being with loved ones… Weddings are one of the most symbolic unions where such occasions conjoin. After some time of staying largely domestic, major new wedding concepts are arising to make these get togethers even more memorable. “Weekend wedding” is one of the most fun ones; instead of spending days and nights to make a wedding organization of just a few hours, the joint efforts the family, wedding organiser, the hotel teams, wedding photographer and everyone else included, culminate in a full weekend of welcome parties and after-day brunches, spa events and food tastings along the glorious wedding ceremony itself. Be it a destination wedding or a domestic one, the feeling of celebrating the new couple, love and life is expanding its scope outside the regular reception and ceremony while creating an authentic spirit of appreciation around the newly-weds; a good luck charm and blessing to be on their side for their ever after.
As weddings are getting more intentional and about celebrating together as a community, the focus is also shifting on unique experiences; both for the couple and the guests. Be it the personalized table-tops with unexpected patterns standing out, surprise elements in wedding cake or the pop-up entertainment, weddings are becoming more about the experience of every single person attending to it and your experienced Raffles team will be delighted to work on creating some of the most amazing memories for the wedding crew.
Wedding venue is always the main pillar to build your fairy tale wedding concept around. Although the white theme is timeless and still prevails, colourful décor of the wedding hall is coming more and more into the picture as now we all agree that such valuable moments of celebration deserve a lot of joy… In a hotel wedding, the versatility of the venue to fit into anything you dream of becomes vital. At Raffles Istanbul, either the grand staircase cascading down to the ballroom embellished in mimosas, manifesting the destination while presenting an amazing photo-op for the bride and the groom in an understated chic wedding or layers of lavender gauze covering the ceiling with heavy chandeliers softly lighting lavender menu cards resting on delicately decorated chinaware, all hues are as per your preference.
One thing that never changes is the fact that some moments last forever… The first and foremost step of a life-long happy journey needs immaculate planning, attention to detail, resourcefulness to turn visions and dreams to reality. Amongst the luxury wedding venues and destinations couples consider, İstanbul, the most energizing and sophisticated city on earth, is one of the highlights on the international map with a wide range of activities and deeply rooted wedding traditions to enjoy from henna nights to bridal hammams. In this city of sophistication and romance, Raffles İstanbul is a wedding venue İstanbul is proud to have thanks to its legacy, flawless service, and devoted wedding professionals.
