    Hi, I'm getting married at this hotel on October 18th 2013. Just wondering if any brides out there have used the photographer that is affiliated with the hotel.? I'm wondering whether or not to consider booking another one from the mainland and paying for them to stay at the hotel. Also can anyone from the uk recommend a company that translate wedding documents etc? I've been quoted £1400 which seems a lot. Thanks Jenny

      We were really torn on whether or not to use the hotel photographer, especially since we are on a budget. In the end, we have decided to book Caribbean Emotions to come from Punta Cana. The travel expense and hotel stay is more than the package we booked, but we are getting a video as well as the pictures, which was important to us, so I think we made the right choice. At least, I hope so! I have only heard good reviews about Caribbean Emotions, whereas I have heard NOTHING about the hotel photographer (including a name?). 

      I still am unsure if we are going the right way, but at the end of the day, years down the road you have the pictures and that is pretty much it; I would just like to know what I am getting ahead of time!

          I checked out the pictures on their Facebook page and wasn't much impressed. Budget-wise it is the cheapest option for the photographer though... I tried to find photographers in Samana, but they don't seem to have any - most search results give Punta Cana photographers.

           

          Yes, and only a few Punta Cana photographers will come out to Samana. I would recommend talking to them as soon as possible.

            Hi

             

            We're getting married there in August. I'm going to do the wedding documents myself and send them to the right places - it seems fairly straightforward and I can do it for about £800 (all in, P&P everything). There is also a company that Thomsons recommend which wanted about £1300 from us!

              Oh, you mean you are doing a whole legal ceremony there? We thought about doing that originally, but opted to save some money and stress and do it here first.... I much prefer the idea to doing an actual legal wedding there though. :)

                Any previous brides get their hair done in the salon?

                 

                I'm getting married there in August and still not sure what to do with my hair but have heard some comments that the salon isn't worth it and you could do a better job yourself!

                 

                Anyone got suggestions or even better, photographs?!

                 

                Thanks :)

                    I am getting married there in July and AM having my hair done at the salon. That being said, I have short hair (re: easy to do) and am just getting it curled. I am having my sister do my makeup though.

                    I think if you bring pictures, you should be okay. At least, that is what I heard.

                      Peach - will you let us know how you get on?

                       

                      July is so close! I bet you're really excited!! Have you got everything sorted?
