Getting Married!

img_5720
On Sunday I made a rather important announcement on my Facebook blog page, and just incase some of you don’t have access to Facebook I’ll say it here too…

Berkay and I are getting married soon!

We’re planning to get married in Turkey at the end of April, just a small wedding at the registry office in Fethiye. I am hoping to fly out mid March for a few days to complete some paperwork and book a date for the end of April. My family have already arranged time off work to join us on the big day, and Berkay’s family are also planning to make the journey to Fethiye which will be rather interesting as our families have never met each other. There won’t be any big white dress or big party, just signing of the papers and then dinner in a restaurant… although we’re hoping to have a celebration party with the full works (and probably a big fat village wedding too) later on.

The best part is that Berkay and my family will all be in the same room. They haven’t even been in the same country for 2 years! The not so good part is that just days after we’re married I’ll be returning to England alone and that thought is rather depressing.. I suspect that will be the hardest goodbye of all!

A few days ago myself and family went out for dinner to celebrate, bubbles included..The only thing missing was Berkay, and that seems to be the story of our lives at the moment…

  6. Squee!! That is so exciting! Congratulations!
    We had all sorts of family and friends at our wedding that had never met before and haven’t been together since, because of the Turkey and other countries connections, and I remember part of my dad’s speech was this really nice commemoration of that fact, that it was a unique meeting and time in the lives of everyone there.
    Wishing you all the best! Bir yastikta kocayin 🙂

  7. Congratulations to you both. It’s what we have all been waiting to hear.

    It would be nice to see some pictures of your wedding day on here for those of us who do not have Facebook.

    As a frequent visitor to Turkey, I have been an avid reader of your Blog Page….What a journey you have been on.

    Won’t be long before you are both living together permanently, either here or in Turkey, or perhaps split between both countries.

    Once again Danni, I wish you every happiness for the future.

    Kind Regards.

Oh this is amazing news to hear I was waiting for the day you were going to announce you are getting married 😊 Me and my fiancé who is also from Turkey are planning on getting married this year after nearly 6 years together. When I first started reading your blog it was near enough listening to how our relationship started and progressed over the years, living with distance, army life. I know how you’re feeling.
    I am so happy for you and I wish you both the best of luck in your new chapter.
