          Im really concerened about the document translation ect as we were told we need birth cirtificates and a single decliration translation and appostiled. i am planning on doing this this week but seeing your post im having second thoughts about spending th £500 i have been quoted for all the docs! where did you find this info online? I have tried many times to contact my WC asking about these docs but no reply! the docs take 3 months to be done and im only 5 months from my wedding but i never get a reply?

          Thanks xx

              HOLA EVERYONE!!! JUST got back last night!!! I'll post a FULL - detailed review in a few days once i've made my way through the mountains of laundry - ha ha - but I'll give a mini general overall review now..

              THE WEDDING WAS PERFECT!!! It could not have gone ANY better! I had Jazmin as my WC - as I got married on the Tulum beach and had a private poolside dinner/reception.
              Jazmin was AMAZING!!! I know alllll the other brides have said the same thing and I will attest that they ar 100% true. These ladies know what they're doing - so any concerns you may have will float away once you get down there.

              Also - to clear up a few things regarding the resort photographers. Everyone is under the impression that GBP is the reason for the restrictions on outside photographers...THIS IS NOT TRUE!!! When I had my meeting with Jazmin - she literally said - I don't care who you have for a photographer...its Arrecife that is the issue.
              As mentioned before...you do have to sign a sheet declining their services and Jazmin did warn us that Arrecife might show up the wedding day to poke their noses around and ask questions about who was taking pics etc. They never did - which was good. But she said if they did - just to tell them we didn't like their pics on Facebook so we don't want them. LOL - no joke.

              We did in fact bring our own photographer from Canada and he was with us for the entire week so even if Arrecife had gotten pissy - they couldnt do a thing about it. So for those of you who are reluctant to use Arrecife - don't feel obligated to! If you want to bring your own - then bring your own!!  The 5 day stay rule is however true.

              I will get into more details about everything else in my review but I wanted to set the record straight on the photography issue.
              Here's a couple teaser pics in the meantime!! (Tulum engagement session, wedding day, and TTD)

              ANY QUESTIONS FIRE AWAY!!!!

                      yes we actually ended up talking to the taxi driver who took us to Tulum ruins for our engagement shoot. My photographer told him the things he was looking for (shallow areas, but not too dark..etc) and he suggested Casa Cenote - even took a lil detour to show us and we didn't like it too much - so then he suggested the Dos Ojos cenotes and they were perfect. The only poopy part was that it cost us $100USD to go in to take professional pics. But given how well they turned out - I'm not complaining.
