Hi malenurseWelcome to the forum, and good luck with whatever plans you make.Purely from a visa point of view - I think you may find that a registrar in the UK would not book a wedding appointment for you unless you get specific permission to marry (Certificate of Approval). Given the sensitivity of 'sham marriages' (which I'm not insinuating you are of course!!!), it would look highly suspicious if you were to marry just as her visa is about to expire.Therefore it's likely that she will need to return to Turkey at the end of her visa, and you then have the choice of whether to apply for a 6 month Fiance Visa for her to return to the UK and marry (then apply for 2 year settlement visa), or to marry in Turkey and then apply for a Spouse Settlement Visa.You will find lots of posts on the forum about the criteria for a Fiance or Settlement Visa, which will give you an idea of the sort of evidence you'll both need to provide. I wouldn't recommend her overstaying the visa, as this may affect your chances of the Fiance /Spouse visa.Best of luck. The rules may not seem to be in your favour, but they're there to protect people from sham marriages and the UK from false applicants. As long as you fulfill the criteria (finances, proof of relationship, accommodation), your chances of getting the right visa should be good.
