UK residents wishing to get married in Calis
« on: May 18, 2011, 13:07:12 PM »
Hi all - looking for some information!
My partner and I are wanting to get married in Turkey when we visit in July.
I know people that live in Calis (my mum is very good friends with Ali Bozkurt and his family) and so will be able to get things going quite quickly once we arrive.
However I'm trying to get everything prepared before we go.
So far i know that we will need to take a certificate of no impediment obtained in the UK with us, full passport, birth certificate and 8 or 10 passport photos.
Once we arrive we need to go to the british consulate - the nearest one is in Fethiye i believe?
It's after this point that I'm unsure where we go. I've heard that we need to have a medical examination?
We'd ideally like to have someone come out to the beach to do the ceremony at sunset, along with one of our Turkish friends to translate if needed and a photographer.
So anyway, any help that people could provide - advice/info/funny stories would be great!

Thanks for the links!
I think the main worry is that we need to go to the British consulate when we arrive. I know there is one in Fethiye but not sure if that's the one we need to go to!

I think you may find that you have to go to Antalya as well unless that has changed!

It might be worth checking out with some of the organisations that "do weddings" here and find out what is involved and their costs - at least you'll have a full check list because there will be a charge for it all - and then you'll know what to do and can work out how much it will cost you to do it independantly.

Good luck  :)

Well we just want to have us two, registrar, photographer.
The big companies seem to be doing big events whereas we want something small and private. If there is a company that does that I'll happily hear about it!

I understand - all the beaurocracy will be the same though.

Sugar Beach Club have a pick and mix "menu" of wedding options - so you can choose what you want to have or not have.

Here is our various set menus. However we have in total 10 set wedding menus to suit all budgets.You are not restricted to sticking with a particular set menu you can mix and match and we will price this accordingly..

Do you know if you only need to travel to the consulate once?
Or can we go to the Turkish embassy in the UK?

When my son got married here they had to travel to Antalya for a day visiting various offices, they got married at the Goldenmoon Hotel in Calis, the chefs son took them to Antalya and helped them with the paperwork, you could ask Ali to contact Mete who owns the Goldenmoon to find out what is required.
