Ruki & Chris’ wedding ceremony took place at The Manor of Groves Hotel, Hertfordshire. The civil ceremony took place in the idyllic gardens at the hotel, followed by a traditional Turkish reception within the glorious Manor Suite. The grand entrance into the reception was led by the Davul Zurna, a traditional form of Turkish music played by a large double-headed drum and a wind instrument. Another Turkish tradition , the testi dance, involves an earthenware pot that is filled with money and sweets. During the dance the pot is smashed to reveal it’s contents. The smashed pot is a good omen for the newly weds to have as many children as the broken pieces!
