OFFICIAL Gran Bahia Principe Riviera Maya Thread

Does anyone have the script for the symbolic ceremony? I'm guessing probably not, but I just wanted to know if it is religious or not. A lot of people are saying it is...

I am wondering if anyone can help me.... I am needing some names of photographers that I can either pay in for the day to the resort or even fly in for 1/2 nights - whichever works out cheaper.  The packages they offer will have to be reasonably priced too. 

 

As I am from Scotland it is proving difficult to locate any photographers that I can contact for prices etc...  Any help will be much appreciated!!

Hi LeeAnne,

 

There are two options for what type of photographer you can have.

 

You can hire the resort photographer or you can fly in your own photographer.

If you fly in your own photographer, they have two options.  Stay for 3 nights and pay a $400 fee or stay for 5 nights (typically cheaper).  

 

January flights are expensive right now, though.  Hopefully they'll go down.  Typically to hire me it's about $2750 but with prices what they are currently it'd be $3400 USD.

@ what was your pricing for the week of November 20th? there was somebody else, I think @@jfarrowable who was getting married on the 18th...and we were hoping to share in the travel costs, but wondering what you would charge for the day?

My wedding is on the 20th..Thanks :)

The cost for the day is $1000.  That includes full day wedding coverage and the edited full resolution digital images.  It also includes an online gallery for family and friends to view the images (I can show you the most recent wedding I shot at Akumal if you'd like to see an example of that... but be prepared, it has 1200+ images!).

 

I'd have to verify with a travel agent the cost of staying at the Akumal side but I would guess it'd be around $2000 TOTAL for each of you.  Possibly slightly cheaper.

@Tlseege- I will ask @@jfarrowable if she is interested in sharing the costs with me...that would help out a lot!!!! I like that you have been to this resort and know where to go etc.... :-)

Hello everyone!

I'm new to this thread but wish I'd found it before we booked our wedding! So much useful information!

We're staying at Akumal 2/4/15-17/4/15 getting married on 10/4/15 at 2pm. Hopefully at the beach setting, I think it's the Akumal gazebo? But not entirely sure! We have around 50 guests travelling with us and staying at Akumal, and four are travelling separately and staying at the coba, so I'm hoping this rebrand isn't going to cause us extra stress! We booked it through First choice.

I look forward to hearing about your up and coming weddings!

Sam

Hi @@Maggietron - I am getting married November of this year.  Flying from Toronto, my guests are paying $1330 (Canadian) each for double occupancy rooms.  I confirmed my rate back in March before there was any news of the Luxury re-brand.  Flying with Air Transat.
