A romantic proposal on a terrace in Venice…

Let’s start at the beginning. How did you two first meet?

London on a night out… Mert walked over to me to talk to me many years ago… and I said no to him 😉


What makes your relationship special? Tell us some things that you both value in your time together. What makes your relationship unique?

I think the respect we have for each other makes our relationship so strong. Mert loves to travel so he always surprises me with a ticket… we love to travel together and Venice was one of those surprises.


Give us all the details about the proposal. How and where did it happen? Was it a surprise? What was the planning process?

Mert organized a full trip to Venice and he was so scared because the flight could be canceled because of the Covid-19. (One week later Venice was on lockdown). Then we arrived at the terrace in our hotel, I saw some candles and petals. My emotions were so mixed at that moment because I couldn’t understand everything was for me until I saw Serena & Sergio filming. It felt unreal and a shock.


We’re all about the bling… Tell us all about that ring!

Elegant but attractive at the same time, all in white gold.


Are you excited to start planning your wedding day? Do you have any ideas in mind yet?

Of course!! It will be a huge wedding, as our Turkish tradition. Many flowers and pampas.
