Amanda and Dean, from the UK, chose the Sugar Beach Club in Oludeniz, Fethiye as their destination wedding venue. They chose the perfect site for a sunny day, surrounded by beautiful foliage in addition to the water. On top of that, no one could get enough of the couple's adorable babies throughout the wedding day.

The wedding ceremony and vows took place by the sea at the Sugar Beach Club. The bride and groom stood at the altar together surrounded by their closest family and friends. They chose to keep the décor simple but elegant to match the beach atmosphere.
