Warning ROR!

Recommended Posts

Here is the email I sent to Chandyln this month when I was having similar concerns and her respsonse... I played dumb and phrased it in a more positive way.

 

"A family friend has offered to do our wedding photography as his wedding gift to us. I just wanted to clear this ahead of time, however don't imagine it should be an issue as he will be a guest at the resort.

 

 

ANSWER: This would not be a problem."

 

For anyone with concerns just email Chandlyn and get the confirmation in writing. She doesn't seem to have a problem with it. (and suprsingly has been really quick at emailing back lately...even though I'm still 5 months out) The issue with Robin may just be that she has been there multiple times... so the family friend part might not work.

I also had an email from the head office at Riu and they assured me this wouldn't be a problem. I feel as long as you have documentation you should be fine. Unfortunately, when Robin was escorted off the the property I was nowhere around.

I'm sorry if I had paid to stay there they would not have escorted me off the premises. I'd have been in jail 2. Bet they wouldn't try and throw out a 6" bloke!!

 

They are going to lose a lot of business and I hope they do its disgraceful

Ok, so who all should we get confirmation from on this issue? I know we can email Chandlyn, but is there more than one person that we could get an OK from, to be extra covered? Should we email Michael or avoid him? It seems like his responses are always inconsistent...

It should not matter how many times Robin has been there or how many weddings she has shot b/c they do not have a policy that says outside vendors are not allowed! They say over and over that you can bring your own photog they just have to stay for 3 nights or pay for a day pass.

 

For those of you who have upcoming weddings, I think you need to be upfront with your photog and make them aware of the situation so that if someone approaches them they won't be caught off guard. I would also make sure to discuss this with Chandlyn when you have your face-to-face meeting. She may not even be aware that any of this took place.

Wow!!! I really can not believe this happen to Robin. How Scary AND what if it would have happen before the brides wedding!!!! My cousin did my pics and I didnt have a problem, but she was very clearly a guest (with a baby) so.... That really should not matter. Everyone get confirmation in writting and give a copy to your photog (since it sounds like they would try to boot the person when they are alone). I just cant believe they would go that far...

Thanks ladies... i just emailed the corporate office and copied Chandalyn to get an answer.... I had asked Chandalyn once before and she said i needed to get permission from a manager.... i copied the same email that was posed in this thread to corporate... hopefully i get the same response....

 

Is there a difference b/c my guy is not residing on the resort? i will just buy him a buddy pass b/c we are only staying from Thurs- Sunday and leaving for San Souci honeymoon....?

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
