Turkish Delights: Eloping in Istanbul

Last weekend I dashed off, on the spur of the moment, to Istanbul for my cousin's Turkish elopement.
Even as the dust settled on the last day of London Fashion Week, I got an email from cousin LY asking It's a little short notice, but our registration of marriage is this weekend and do you think you could make it? I blinked once, and then twice, to be sure I wasn't hallucinating, stared at my ever-growing pile of work, assessed my deadlines and thought How often does the one cousin you are close to and practically raised you as a child runs away from Malaysia to Turkey after the romantic, whirlwind courtship of her dreams and gets married in a traditional Turkish ceremony? 


So without further delay I booked the first flight out on Saturday, threw a few things into my le pliage, read up on Turkish etiquette (never point the soles of your feet at anyone) and spirited myself away for possibly the whimsiest (is that a word) weekend I've had this year.
