Turkish Weddings – Street Dancing


Wednesday 19 November, 2014 by Uncle Spike

We do like to do things a little differently here, that’s for sure!


When we have a wedding, the bride and groom set out together from the bride’s parents’ house (usually) in a car garishly decorated with ribbons and flowers. Friends, family, neighbours, and anyone else who just fancies joining in, then follows the wedding car through every possible street they can find in the village, town or district.




Horns on every car are blaring continuously – just in case anyone within a five kilometre radius wasn’t aware of said event 🙂




Every now and then we’ll do something daft like this… stop and all start dancing in the road (there is usually a traditional pipe and drum band stuffed into a minibus somewhere within the convoy! Then, after a few minutes causing traffic mayhem, its back in the cars and the convoy continues….

These two short videos were taken in the street. We have no idea who they were by the way. It’s just the way we do things here ! 🙂
