BG Events continues to keep doing international weddings and we are proud to have such a wide guest range..

This time our sweet couple was from Switzerland and their wedding took place at the Esma Sultan Mansion.

As you may know, Esma Sultan Mansion is a historical mansion located at the Bosphorus. It was originally built around 1780s for Esma Sultan, the daughter of Sultan Abdulhamit. It suffered a fire in 1975 and was renovated in 2001. Today Esma Sultan Mansion is a great example of a historical building with modern design.

Since the couple had chosen to get married at a venue with a history, they wanted to use a bit of Ottoman details in their wedding as well.

So we created a modern ottoman wedding theme for them while being loyal to our “simple is elegant” concept.

The wedding turned out to be a reflection of sophisticated elegancy..

Summer Rain

Our couple is from NYC, their families and guests arrived from all around the world.

We had started working on this wedding months before the date, it was a summer time wedding and was planned to be outside. Unfortunately, a mad rain storm caught the city by surprise, so we had to move everything inside. We were prepared for any weather condition, therefore did not have any problems. But that was a day when perfect planning and professionalism was effectively used.

We love organizing destination weddings, meeting new people, learning about new tastes and new cultures.

This wedding theme was olive tree. Olive branch is a symbol for peace and have been used at weddings for centuries. While there are awful terrorism attacks around the world, we think this couple’s theme selection becomes more meaningful.

The wedding took place at the Adile Sultan Palace (www. adilesultan.org ), we surrounded the palace with hundreds of olive branches.

We enjoyed working on this wedding, we hope it shows from the photos.

Private Party at the Macakizi

While we are approaching to summer, we thought that it could be a good idea to remind you some ‘summer breeze’

This time we are taking you to Macakizi in Turkbuku.

As most of you know Maca Kizi is considered one of the hippest hotels in Turkey.

Not many hotels can match up to the atmosphere of Macakizi. It is famous for its happy hour parties and excellent kitchen, you can meet worldwide celebrities and artists chilling at the bar.

BG Events had organized an unforgettable ‘ White Party ‘in Macakizi for an important Lebanese family.

BG Event’s elegant and sophisticated decoration was completed with good spirited, fun loving 250 international guests. Saxophone player Taygun’s performance was in sync with the whole ambiance.

TOP SECRET WEDDING

Yes . … yes … Top Secret !

We know you are curious … Can’t wait to learn whats going on…

After 2 years, we think it is ok to share a few details

Do you know, how many distinguished guests from the European royal family visited Istanbul for a wedding? We can only tell you that many had attended and all were fascinated by the beauty of this amazing city.

Istanbul hosted an important Royal Wedding and BG Events, partnered with two of the best companies in Britain- Admirable Crichton and Firecracker Works, organised it. Flower designs were created by the amazing Woodbrown London. It was an absolute pleasure working with everyone included, we became good friends and we look forward to new projects together.

The wedding was a 3 day event, the events took place at Esma Sultan Mansion and Ciragan Palace.

Please Enjoy….

Marie Antoinette was at the Four Seasons Bosphorus

marieantoinette

She had a dream, we made it real..

This is how we work 🙂

Our precious bride wanted us to take a visit to mid 18th century, We did and decided to work around Marie Antoinette who is one of the most fascinating figures of that century.

The wedding was at the Four Seasons Bosphorus Hotel.

We created a French atmosphere in the ballroom and wanted our guests feel the difference the moment they entered.

Bride and Groom made an entrance with a violinist playing their favourite song dressed in that era’s costume. Their first dance was a waltz, and they sure looked like royalty.

A theater stage inspired from the Versailles Palace was designed and that’s where the ceremony took place. Feathers, candles, crystals, ribbons and silk was used while decorating. Masks were placed at each setting for guests to use.

Later famous singer Bengu and DJ Suat Atesdagli took place on that stage, and the wedding lasted until early hours of the morning.

An "Al Dente" Wedding Celebration

Last days of 2014 were pretty busy for us as we threw 3 weddings at only one weekend…

One of them was an international celebration at the glorious Esma Sultan Mansion..The bride and the groom asked for a unique concept that would impress their guests that were invited from 2 countries; Italy and Turkey..

The wedded couple asked for a European taste mixed with a wellcoming Turkish ambience which would be fancy but within small details that would be remembered forever just like their unique love would be…
