Welcome to our guide to getting married in Turkey.

Our hotel and weddings are now featured on WeddingTV’s ‘Destination Turkey’ program on Sky Channel 282 as one of the best places to get married in Turkey and the program can be viewed any time on our dedicated website.

Turkey’s spectacular coastlines, magnificent landscapes and exotic cities make Turkey the perfect backdrop for your wedding abroad
Create the wedding of your dreams with The Grand Ucel Hotel. Our staff is dedicated to anticipate every detail to ensure a memorable occasion. We can also supply referrals for florists, DJ, photographers, musicians and decorators who can add a unique touch to your special occasion.

The Grand Üçel Hotel is set in a quiet location, surrounded by dramatic mountains.
Add to these its beautiful gardens and the warm Turkish sunshine, virtually guaranteed to shine down on you and you have the perfect setting for your wedding.  
No two ceremonies are the same, as we tailor-make your wedding to reflect your wishes and your budget. It can be as traditional or as unusual as you choose and we can advise on any of the traditional Turkish wedding elements, that you may wish to incorporate
Getting married in Turkey is a very simple process and the only legal documents you are required to show at the British Embassy are your Birth Certificate, an up-to-date passport with a minimum of 6 months left to run and a

Certificate of Non-Impediment. You will be required to visit the Embassy with these documents, where they wil be translated into Turkish, allowing the formal wedding papers to be drawn up. And don’t worry, we organise the trip for you and a member of our staff accompanies you all the way.
It is also made even easier for you to have family and friends join you, as there is a wide choice of airlines with direct flights from both major and regional airports. Our accommodation The Grand Ucel Hotel is of a very high standard and Turkey is reknowned for its first-class service and warm hospitality. These together, ensure all members of the wedding party will have a comfortable and memorable stay

Let us, at The Grand Ucel Hotel, take the stress out of organising your wedding arrangements, by doing it all for you. With years of wedding planning experience, we appreciate your marriage is very personal and unique to you and we believe the ceremony should reflect this. We organise everything from the legal requirements to the cake. All you have to do, is be there on the day!

Standard Itinerary:

While the bride, bridesmaids & mother of the bride are at the hairdressers, the groom, best man and groom’s father are being
pampered by a local barber – the full traditional Turkish shave and shoulder massage!

Once all the wedding party are ready, usually late afternoon, the guests & Groom gather in the gardens of the hotel to await the arrival of the Bride.

The service is presided over by the local marriage registrar who conducts a civil ceremony on our stage area. An interpreter is present and you will be required to sign a number of documents, including your marriage book, which in Turkey, replaces the marriage certificate.  You can also incorportate your own vows into this section of the ceremony, adding the personal touch that will help make your wedding truly unique.

Immediately following the marriage ceremony, you can opt for a garden finger buffet and refresh the guests with a choice of wine or wedding cocktail, while a carefully chosen local band of musicians is playing gently in the background.

The Bride & Groom, together with a small number of family & friends, will then be whisked off to one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean – Ölüdeniz. The incredible sunsets make for stunningly romantic photos. You will visit the Blue Lagoon, a private beach, you will have a chance to refresh with a long, cool cocktail.

Back to The Grand Ucel Hotel to join your guests for the Wedding Dinner. You may choose either buffet-style or silver service. How much wine & champagne you choose to provide, is entirely up to you, as is the size of your wedding cake – from one to seven tiers!

Once the meal is finished, you may like to include a traditional Turkish Belly dancer and Folk Dancers to entertain your guests, before completing your special day with dancing the night away.
