Wedding Inspiration of the Week: Shangri-La Bosphorus, Istanbul
Istanbul has become one of the most preferred international wedding destinations for billionaires. It’s a shopper’s paradise, a gourmet’s delight and a center of culture with ancient Ottoman palaces, treasury of miniature art and architectural marvels. The 186 luxurious guestrooms of the Shangri-la offer exquisite views of the city’s skyline and the Bosphorus Strait.
The hotel provides an exquisite setting for a charming wedding reception with its old-school world-travel opulence against the old world splendor of Istanbul. The hotel takes design cues from the glamorous Dolmabahce Palace with swathes of marble, glittering chandeliers and a mix of European, Asian and Turkish design. A grand staircase wends down the hotel’s three-story atrium, transporting guests from the lobby to the elegant ballrooms and other venues. The hotel’s two magnificent ballrooms have capacities that range from 100 to 550 persons.
Our Editors have put together a Mood Board for an elegant and exquisite wedding at Shangri-La Istanbul; featuring gorgeous views of the hotel and the ballroom, exquisite jewellery from Tanishq, and set-ups from real weddings at Shangri-la Bosphorus.
