oh me too! well essex actually but i dont admit that to anyone. My friends coming from london got incredible deals from thomas cook - 1400pp for 14 nights in our hotel and flight from london. the deals are not nearly as good coming from within mexico

 

im doing a tasting soon so i ll post info about that in 2 weeks!

I actually went to university in Essex, and love it there - you should be proud not ashamed lol. Yeah, deals within Mexico are really bad, I've been to Cabo and Puerto Vallarta whilst living in Mexico and I'm always shocked at how expensive it is for a long weekend, especially considering Mexican wages in comparison to British wages. And yes please post all the info you get about BV and would be reaaaaallllly helpful! 

 

Happy Planning!

I have a question for BV brides. I was all set to book Grand Coral Beach Club, when my coordinator told me that they are instituting a new, very large site fee! Booo!  However, after looking at the amazing weddings at BV (photographed by Del Sol, of course!) I am really starting to look at BV with fresh eyes.  Are there any other brides getting married here?  Any past brides have comments or advice on this venue?

Matt-

 This is one of the weddings that got me rethinking my stance! Love this wedding---and I JUST realized that this is the THE Arlenis, of Le Reve fame!  The fact that she had her wedding here says volumes about the quality of this venue.

Can I ask the other brides who have gotten married here about the lighting?  It seems like you'd need a lot of lighting to properly illuminate this facility---what kind of investment did you have to make in extra lighting.  Also, I'd be curious to hear from Matt and other photographers if this venue posed a challenge because it is so private (and dark at night).

With any venue, the ambient lighting sets the mood.  Sometimes its as simple as candlelight... lanters, globes, or string lights (very simple) like christmas lights.  For very cheap, these kind of lights can make a big big difference if you are interested in the DIY style.

 

OR, the venue will likely have a lighting package (and this may be costly) to have a crew, generator, and special PAR lamps, LED's, and other very bright lamps installed to light each pilar, palapas, etc and of course, a few light stands on the dance floor.   This kind of stuff is pretty impt...

 

At the end of the day, we photograph with a style that has light included.  We use multiple flashes when photographing couples to be able to make a very dark place look illuminated.  So ultimately, we just light what we see, regardless if there is or is not ambient and the photos will turn out fine.

 

Try though if you can to get some ambient lights installed.  If you have any vases on the tables and use floating candles, don't fill them with water to the top because the wind will blow them out.  If you can, find WHITE christmas lights to string around... the bigger the lamps, the more light output.   Get creative if you can!

 

Good luck!

matt
