Wedding Review Riu Ocho Rios, April 3rd 2009

We arrived on March 31st after a very tiring 10 hour flight & we were exhausted, however upon arrival, all our tiredness just disappeared, we were checked in quickly & easily & were allocated room 1242, this is in the 2nd horseshoe where I guess most of the suites are in, ours was a junior suite which was great for ourselves. The following morning we met with Nikki who handles the weddings along with Chandlyn & arranged everything in less than an hour, we chose the Mammee Bay for our reception dinner, Beach gazebo for the ceremony, we didn't feel the need to upgrade the decorations so just went for the free ones. I did upgrade my bouquet though to 24 burgundy roses to coincide with my husband & son's waistcoats, which was $110.
Following our meeting with Nikki we proceeded to the photoshop to arrange the photo package, as Nikki explained we had 12 pictures already with our wedding package (Royal) so we decided to book another hour with the photographer as well as the DVD of the ceremony, which I have to say is a must! We mostly dealt with Karen, Michael's shop manager, and she is so helpful & kind, I cannot say enough good things about her, we spent about 15-20mins arranging the photos & we chose to have 30 extra pictures on CD as well as the 12 that was included in the wedding package & the same 12 pictures in a photo album.
The morning of the wedding arrived bright & sunny, although it was a bit windy around lunchtime, however it was welcomed by ourselves as it cooled us down. After breakfast I proceeded to the spa to have my hair & makeup done, I had already had my mani & pedi done the afternoon before to save some time. Nicole did my hair & makeup & I have to say she was brilliant, I had just wanted to have my hair with a bit of volume at the crown but she persuaded me to have it curled, and I am so glad I agreed as she did a fantastic job. I brought my own makeup with me & she did an excellent job with that too. (To be continued)

I'm glad you found their makeup application good. I will be bringing my own too and having them apply.

If you don't mind me asking, how much were your photos? I am trying to decide on what to go for.
