Paul & Tansu’s meeting is a very cute story: Paul went to Turkey to get some dental work done. While trying to order a coffee in the Starbucks near his hotel, the barista wasn’t understanding his Scouse accent. This was actually a blessing in disguise as the handsome Turkish guy next in the queue (Tansu as you guessed!) kindly helped him order his drink. They started chatting, and ended up talking for the next 2 hours. They exchanged numbers and the rest is history!
In 2019, Paul popped the question at the top of the Kuala Lumpur Tower! How romantic is that?
Their original wedding was planned for the 2nd of May 2020. In the meantime Covid happened cancelling many weddings supposed to take place in that period. They decided to postpone it to the 1st of July. Eventually, with only two weeks notice, the 11th of July had been confirmed. Whoop whoop!
They tied the knot in the Mayfair room with their very close ones. It was a sweet micro wedding of only 9 guests. It was more than enough guests to get all the emotions of a more traditional wedding or a great confetti shot!
Despite a few hiccups, we managed to get a red London bus for a merry tour of London’s iconic places while drinking champagne. The final destination was an airbnb with a balcony gifting us with a stunning view of the city.
Paul said that while planning the wedding for the 2nd of May he was the ultimate bridezilla, ‘Everything was super organised: Adele lookalike, wedding singer, eucalyptus leaves, white wedding taxis. 30000 emails exchanged with South place hotel shoreditch… All of that went out the window, we had 2 weeks to put something together. To be honest we wanted a small relaxed, fun, intimate wedding. That’s what happened,it all came together and it was a wonderful day!’
