In my final post from the Istanbul trip I wanted to share with you the stunning Ciragan Palace Kempinski. I was wow'd by the beauty of this former sultan's palace. Immaculately kept, the hotel itself stands for luxury. Below are a few images of myself in front of the function hall. A graduation ball for medical students was about to begin when we got there and the gorgeous gowns added to the grandeur.
If I was to re-do my wedding, it would take place here! It's so hard to explain the beauty of this palace. What you can't see is that on the right of the venue is the Bosphorus Straight, and on the left is the sheesha garden/lounge and the hotel. Directly in front is a pool and terrace restaurant looking out on to the Bosphorus. *Sigh*
