Experiential Istanbul - Promoting Destination Weddings in Istanbul
Wed 24-04-2019

With its second office in Dubai, KM Events has become the only international wedding company welcoming the biggest destination weddings in Turkey and around the region as well as by opening its second office to Dubai and spreading its vision to Middle East.

This year, KM Events has developed a special project, Experiential Istanbul, to celebrate its 25th year in the event industry. Experiential Istanbul was designed by Meltem Bayazit Tepeler, owner of KM Events, and her daughter Cemre Tepeler, to emphasize Istanbul as one of the biggest wedding destinations to the top 15 Indian Wedding Planners by providing them with a very unique experience and taste of historical Istanbul.

Through the whole experience, the guests were welcomed by and stayed at one of the most wonderful hotels of Istanbul: Four Seasons Bosphorus. On the first day of this experience, the guests were taken to one of the most important and historic restaurants of Istanbul, Beyti where they had a very special ‘white welcome’ dinner at the Four Seasons Bosphorus Hotel on the same night.

On the second day, they had the chance to listen to the mythological history of  Hagia Sofia, Grand Bazaar and Topkapı Palace followed by a lunch at Konyalı Restaurant at Topkapı Palace with a spectacular Istanbul view, experiencing the real Turkish food. After a day filled with history of the old city Sultanahmet, guests were led to the Four Seasons Sultanahmet for an afternoon cocktail where they had the chance to review the breathtaking view of the terrace of the Four Seasons Sultanahmet, with Hagia Sofia as the backdrop. They watched a Sufi show, which made one of the highlight moments of Experiential Istanbul.

The historical Hurrem Sultan Hamam, which is also located at Sultanahmet, has accompanied the guests for a special ‘Red Turkish night’ with Turkish belly dancer shows.

The third day was spent at the Galata and Pera area with a lunch at the amazing Pera Palace Hotel which has welcomed Agatha Christie, Zaza Gabor and Ataturk, the founder of Turkey. For the last night, an Italian theme was created at the Venetian Palace with the host of Italian Consul Massimo Gaiani and the owners of Kempinski Venice. The tables and the whole theme was created according to Venice and the guests enjoyed the Italian atmosphere with Indian songs and have ended the last night with a pose of Namaste.

The top Indian wedding planners have said their goodbyes to Istanbul on a sunny day and a small Bosphorus tour on a private boat.

"As KM Events, it was our pleasure to create such a unique project and collaborate with talented wedding planners from India. There will be many more tailor-made familiarisation trips by KM Events in the nearest future to create unique experiences of Turkey," explained KM Events.
