    I didn't even notice...I was in my own happy bubble!
    I don't think the beach is any less private than the garden gazebo. A HUGE amount of the rooms are directly loooking over that gazebo - and we always noticed the weddings there before we noticed them on the beach!
    Married April 4, 2008 at the Riu Ocho Rios!

      This is also something that is a major concern for me. I'm so scared that my pics will have a bunch of beach chairs in them vs. the very elegant private weddings I see at some other resorts. I hope that won't be the case though. I wonder how far down they would be willing to move the arch though?

        I also worry about the privacy (beach ceremony at ROR July 20). I was at a wedding in Mexico at Mayan Rivera as a guest and I saw the topless women lingering on the periphery of the ceremony area. The couple didn't notice and their photographer did an excellent job of avoiding these onlookers. We hired the same photographer and am bringing him from Toronto to our wedding because he did such a great job.

          I noticed people as I was walking to the beach ceremony with my girls and parents.  Other than that, I have no idea who was watching.


          The only problem we had was when taking photos, there were 2 teenagers buying what I can only assume to be drugs right behind me.  My photographer screamed at them to have some tact and not do their deals when there is a wedding going on (we had 51 guests so it was a large group).  They moved right along down the beach.
