The day after the party, after a bit of a sleep in (and with *hum* a slight hangover) we headed back to the ferry terminal where we hopped with many of the other guests from the night before on a Bosphorus cruise. The sun kept playing hide and seek with the clouds, there was a cool breeze, we got hot tea and savoury little cakes... it was the perfect, lazy way to recuperate in style.

I had never imagined I would ever attend such an amazingly international wedding; there were countless nationalities, beautiful customs, and many wonderfully colourful outfits - it was stunning.
I was lucky to be asked by our friends to be the one to photograph their special day and so I got to take it all in even better than anyone else. Here are a few shots from this beautiful, happy, loving day (and a couple from the evening before, when we had a henna session) so that you can feast your eyes too. Enjoy! :-)

A couple of weeks ago we got to spend several days in Istanbul for our friends' wedding. The party itself was a wonderful affair (more about that later) and the city - which we were discovering for the very first time - blew us away. On our first day there we decided to board a ferry at random and see where it would take us. It went straight to the Asian part of the city where we ended up in buzzing little streets and had a lovely lunch surrounded by locals only.
