Wedding venues around the world are now more experienced than ever in delivering dream days with all the traditions and details you’d expect; but there’s one hotel that’s caught our eye for going above and beyond when it comes to wedding planning and execution: the five-star Swissôtel The Bosphorus in Istanbul.
Located on the picturesque banks of The Bosphorus, it’s nestled in a 63-acre private resort amidst gardens and hilly forests, making it a fairytale location with the added charm and culture of Turkish hospitality at its finest.

Every couple desires flexibility to have their wedding their way and this is something the team excels at. They deliver an experience that goes far beyond expectation and it starts with the location of your ceremony.
Couples can either wed inside or outside; both options are equally as stunning. For outdoor summer weddings, hold your ceremony in Sultan Park which can be dressed and decorated to match your theme. For reception drinks and other wedding functions, a popular spot is the Swiss Living Terrace. Here, your guests can enjoy poolside activities against Istanbul’s striking city skyline.
For a more formal indoor setting perhaps for an evening reception meal, book the exquisite Fuji Ballroom and Asuka Hall, which both cater for larger capacities – in fact, the hotel can cater for functions for up to 1000 guests so don’t be shy with your guest list numbers, though intimate celebrations are also welcome. In addition to the ballroom and hall which is popular for henna nights, there is a number of smaller function rooms that can also be hired if required.
