Gorgeous blue skies welcomed me for an amazing Braxted Park wedding over in Essex. Two super lovely people, Eliz and Tolga welcomed me like one of the family from the moment I arrived. My first Turkish wedding and I certainly wasn’t disappointed, with so much fun and tradition it made my job an absolute pleasure. I hadn’t met Eliz and Tolga before the day and during the initial phone call I remember Eliz saying that they both weren’t a fan of having their photo taken. Once I had met them I thought they must have been winding me up because they both looked fantastic. You’ll see exactly what I mean below.

The day started for me with morning preparation, as mentioned the welcome was lovely and I had free reigns to capture the day as it unfolded. The early magic moment for me was having the privilege of capturing Eliz’s dad seeing her for the first time in her beautiful wedding dress. Moments like these can never be replicated. The next moment that I was lucky enough to capture was seeing Tolga’s grandmother showing him how proud she was. This was one of those weddings with so many special moments throughout. A mixed joyous and emotional ceremony that took place with two people so obviously in love. As for the aftermath, well! This was some party based around some amazing Turkish traditions and some serious moves on the dance floor.
