Carol began Planning Weddings in Icmeler Marmaris primarily for UK citizens around 18 years ago. Although Carol has been in resort for over 25 years.
Both herself and her husband operated a Turkish Tourism & Events Company, known as Icmeler Travel Centre in the suburb of Icmeler in the Marmaris Area, offering hotels, apartments, airport transfers and owning their own boat they offered a fabulous boat trip for their guests known as 'Surf n Turf' which was very successful and featured in the acclaimed yachting magazine 'Voyager' as one of the top ten things to do in South West Turkey. Their portfolio expanded when a guest asked casually if they could organise a Wedding for them. As Carol was already experienced in Event Management in the UK they agreed. It was a simple affair and the couple were very happy with their special day. This planted the seeds that followed. The Company is now managed by their partner and they work together as an associate partnership. There is no third party involvement of any kind. We do not work with other wedding businesses/wedding planners in other areas ensuring our customers do not receive diluted services.
Carol's Portfolio has expanded over the years and she has planned hundreds if not thousands of weddings, specialising in weddings for tourists visiting Icmeler and Marmaris area. She has become a great success as the word spread about her ability, professionalism and care for her customers. Carol also speaks Turkish and understands her customers concerns, giving that extra peace of mind when it comes to translations and care.
Carol operates her Wedding Planning Business from her UK office in Edinburgh and of course travels to Icmeler office during the summer months ensuring she is close to her customers and contactable locally all year round. The best of both worlds for customers. Both businesses UK and in Turkey are registered businesses specialising in events and tourism giving customers peace of mind.
Carol also meets her Brides and Grooms in resort to go over the final Wedding details from Icmeler office in Turkey, giving clients the best possible service building relationships both here in the UK and being available in Turkey before, during and after the Wedding Day. For your Perfect Wedding Day, Carol Gonden, Wedding Planning Specialist for the Icmeler and Marmaris area in Turkey is waiting to hear from you.
