What a great idea. I want the beach location (fingers crossed - still waiting to hear back from WC) and I was going to get a pair of shoes for afterwards and my at home reception where I am wearing the dress again and then just go barefoot on the beach but those barefoot sandals are excellent. xx

Hi Trisha,

 

We are thinking about taking my Fiance's cousin down to take our pictures. I am not sure if she will need a permit. Do you happen to have a website or forms that need to be filled out and the equipment restricitions? Thank you for all your help :)

we took 30 metres of organza material, I cant really remember how much it cost..mayve around £70?! The chair ties were organza also but we just bought these off ebay. We initislly sent for a sample one. they were really cheap, about £30 for 30 ties. I actually bouth them first and themed the rest around the ( I was a bit osessed with the chairs!) We just used real petals from resort, one pack was scattered ready, and the flowergirl scattered some more while she was walking.

I wonder if Vina would think differently about that.  He is only in the three photos that I posted above for Cheryl's pictures, but because he was there I had to change the way that I photograph weddings.  Had he not been there, I would have gotten different angles and photographs.

Hopefully your Fiance's cousin in a professional photographer.  If she is conducting business, she needs the proper visa.  There are photographers that don't fill out the paperwork.  And there are photographers that have been detained and have gone through hell because of it.  It's just really not something to risk when you're dealing with someone's wedding photographs.

 

MEXICO VISAS INFORMATION FM3, FMN, FMT & FM2
 

As for equipment restrictions... the biggest one that trips most photographers up, is that you're only allowed one camera per family or person.  You're only allowed two lenses, one flash, two batteries, no tripod (although I have seen some people bring them without getting stopped).  Any photographer will tell you that this is not enough equipment and backup equipment to properly shoot a wedding so you have to be smart and fill out the proper paperwork and have the proper assistence.

I've asked my WC this question before and she said it was okay :). However, you don't get anything extra in place of it.... (ie I was trying to get extra flowers for wedding decor since I wasn't using their minister lol). Hope this helps!!

Jemma, did you bring 2 x 30 meters of pink color (1 dark and 1 light) organza? Also, does the resort cut the fabric for you to go around each pole of the hammock and across the two ends? Loved your decor by the way!!
