A lot of things in life are subjective – and what could be classed as the “ultimate wedding venue” is certainly one of them. But, sailing off into the sunset onboard a luxury yacht is, without doubt, romantic. Organising an intimate gathering to share your big moment on a luxury catamaran in Turkey is hard to beat. In other words: a beautiful yacht, the Turkish coast with its turquoise sea, craggy mountain backdrop, sun and incredible sunsets, is inherently romantic.
There are many reasons organising a yacht wedding in Turkey makes sense – here are a few to consider:
THE PROS OF A YACHT WEDDING IN TURKEY
A wedding tailored entirely to you.
A wedding is, quite rightly, all about you. Aside from the dress and your choice of guests, the venue and management of the proceedings are the most important considerations. The day should run smoothly and without glitches. The decoration, food, entertainment and ceremony should all be carefully planned in advance and orchestrated so all you need to do is turn-up and enjoy the occasion. The Sail Med team are used to running intimate weddings and events. From organising simple romantic celebrations, to arranging a full-on fine food and fancy affair, whatever you want, we have it covered.
No additional guests or gate-crashers.
If your idea of the perfect wedding is a gathering of carefully chosen friends and family with no uninvited extras, a yacht wedding makes perfect sense. Invite guests onboard for a welcome drink and set sail to a bay of choice for the ceremony knowing there will be no photo-bombers or gate crashers to spoil the occasion.
A wide choice of locations for the ceremony.
The coast around Fethiye has attracted romantics for centuries. Anthony and Cleopatra are said to have celebrated their honeymoon along this stretch of coast, and legend would suggest that “Cleopatra Bay”, not far from Fethiye, was even given to the Queen as a wedding gift. There are numerous stunning bays and islands in the local area all ideal as a backdrop for your celebration. Let our team guide you through a few options so you can create and capture some unforgettable memories.
You can hold the ceremony and reception onboard.
Sail Meds skippered catamaran is the ideal venue for both the wedding ceremony and the reception – we have even organised day long Hen/Stag cruises and pre-wedding gatherings! Providing the paperwork is in order, it is possible to get married onboard the yacht – the Captain may even be able to officiate the proceedings. However, Turkey does require some paperwork to be organised well in advance so please contact us so we can guide you through the process and help arrange the necessities.
Take your honeymoon onboard.
So, now you’ve taken your vows and enjoyed the celebration, it’s time to drop off the guests and return to shore – or is it? Why not say your goodbyes at the quayside, return to the yacht and sail off into the sunset? Sail along the coast for a few days spending days swimming and snorkelling in bays and nights dining under star-lit skies. Our team can provide all the provisions you need for your romantic getaway leaving you back in Fethiye a few days later to share your photos and reminisce over a truly special and indulgent romantic honeymoon at sea.
