It seems like I’ve only just got back from Turkey (5 weeks ago) but tomorrow I’m flying back again! It’s only a quick visit this time, I’m going to the airport straight after work tomorrow evening, flying all night via Istanbul, and then landing in Dalaman at 7am! I fly back to the UK on Sunday morning so it’s just 4 days/nights.
I didn’t think I’d be back there again so soon, and the only reason I’m going is to put some of our wedding plans into action. I have completed the relevant paperwork here, had it signed by a solicitor and certified by the foreign office, but now we need to take our paperwork into the registry office in Fethiye, have some blood tests and book a date!
What started out as a small wedding in the registry office followed by dinner in a restaurant in Fethiye has turned more into a ‘proper’ wedding – I went dress shopping a few weeks ago and despite being adamant I would just have a pretty, basic dress from a high street shop, I ended up walking into a ‘Confetti and Lace’ bridal shop, trying on a beautiful, sparkly white wedding dress and the rest is history!!
Since then, we’ve been planning the wedding, I have sorted out favors, a cake, a venue, flights and accomodation, and now all we need to book is an actual date for the wedding in April, a photographer, flowers and wedding rings… It’s going to be a very busy, but exciting 4 days!
Online check in is done, my suitcase is packed full of nandos sauce for Berkay, and I’m nearly all ready to go…
See you tomorrow, Turkiye!
have a great 4 days, hope u manage to do everything on yr list and more x x x x x x
Congratulations, and have a good journey.
A question, we are also getting married in Turkey but in June and yet we have been told we have to use a Notary Public to sign our Afadavit and also that blood tests are no longer required?
Is this not the case?
So sorry I didnt reply to this before, do you still need help? You can use a commissioner for oaths they only charge £5, a notary will charge £100.. yes blood tests arent needed in some places, I didnt need one but my husband did x
Will your feet touch the ground ? Knowing Turkey not everything will go
smoothly but there is always a first time, fingers crossed for you Danni
Hope all goes to plan for you Danni..
thanks Stella x
Exciting times ahead Danni,hopefully Berkays visa application will go smoothly but if not then at least you have the option of moving to Turkey. Awwwww have a lovely if not hectic time,safe journey back tomorrow x x x
