        Lots of Iberostar brides here! I haven't been to Jamaica yet but I am still SO excited to get married there. Hearing from all of the other brides really helps ease any concerns that I have along the way.

          Looking forward to your review! I vacationed at the Jewel Runaway Bay in May and loved it so much, I'm considering it for my wedding. But there is hardly any info on the Jewel resorts here.

            Sorry ladies, not using Dwayne Watkins anymore, turned out to be the biggest mistake when negotiating, we hadnt signed any contracts yet and wanted to change dates and he told us he has to keep all the money, then he sent half back! Then cancelled. Im complaining about his tardiness and lack of communication and trying to lock us in a contract when his contract requires a signature and money and we havent signed! Worst person and attitude ever and very greedy. We are now looking elsewhere. Please beware!!!! Nightmare to deal with and slow!

            We are sorry that you had a bad experience with our pre-consultations.  The majority of our clients are very happy.  The reservation fee was charged specifically to reserve that date for you; to hold it for you and no other. Period..  You changed your date 3 times over the course of a few months, and we never once forfeited your fee.  We changed the date very willingly without penalty, even though we lost revenue by turning away other clients.  As a courtesy, although not required, we decided to refund 50% of the reservation fee, after your communication became less than favorable.  Having a positive relationship going forward became very difficult, and it was obvious we wouldnt be a "good fit" as your photographers.  Our relationship with our brides are very important to us.  It is clearly reflected in the images and moments we capture on their day.    Really sorry things turned out this way.  We continue to wish you nothing but the best.




            Dwayne Watkins

              Thank you Cherina,


              I have a couple in my radar who Im really excited about but I will look into Merrick Cousley for sure, got some quotes too! I cant believe the mess and nightmare Dwayne has put us in and all because my baby needs an operation and I needed to change the date before we signed anything that would lock us in. I would never put my wedding before my sons health, not even if he offered me the day for FREE. 


              Warning brides........DONT GO THERE!!! WORST MISTAKE EVER


              Nevertheless I am really happy about my wedding! hired a celebrity chef for awesome cuisine, great wedding planner. 


              Candid Expressions Photography look good too.


              Hi! I just wanted to put this out there. I posted awhile back on this thread that i decided to go with Dwayne Watkins and honestly that was the BEST decision my husband and i made!!! I can't stress enough to future brides that you want to make sure you have a great photographer. Photos/videos are the ONLY thing you will have after your big day to showcase your lifechanging experience! i cried when i saw my pictures. Things did not go exactly as i planned but the way my wedding was captured in my photos reminded me that i indeed had my dream wedding with my husband family and friends :-) Dwayne was very professional and gave my husband alot of great advice to help us make our day run smoothly. Also, some things went unexpected ( such as my cake fell over at the beginning of the reception, still have no idea how it happened, wind, weather...no clue) and Dwayne stepped in the help coordinate when that was not his job at all, and at the same time still managed for him and his assistant to take photos of everything lol ! My husband and I were truly thankful to have genuine people around us.


              You can see some of my pictures on Dwaynes blog



              ALso, my instagram page @muneera_o   i posted some of the photos and you can read the comments people wrote! it was so inspriring! and 80% of the comments were from complete strangers :-) I wish you all the best of luck! i'll be writing a review soon on my experience! this site as well as other brides have helped me have the experience of a lifetime ;-)
