Tulum wedding photographer

Tulum wedding photographer Dreamtime Images has shot celebrations around the world — and Tulum is one of the best places to get married there is, both in Mexico and in the entire world! It’s got beautiful beaches, fun activities, cool Mayan ruins, sinkholes & cenotes (great for wedding photography sessions) and all sorts of great places to stay.

Tulum is a laid-back beach area in the Rivera Maya in Mexico, and a perfect place for a destination event. It’s easy to get to, there’s a lot to do, and there are some fantastic places to stay. Unlike the resort areas of Cozumel and Cancun, most of the hotels in Tulum max out at two stories. They tend to be hidden amongst the trees, so although you may be in a hotel zone, you don’t feel it. Destination celebrations here are becoming more and more popular based on its pristing beauty and relaxed vibe.

Like all Mexican weddings, you’ll need the following for your marriage requirements: passport, birth certificate, blood tests, witnesses, and you’ll have to be in th country for a few days before you get married. You also must have your legal ceremony in a judge’s office – then you can have your spiritual/religious ceremony whenever you want. Typically it takes 3 days to get married in Tulum. Many people will just do the legal work in their home state, and then have their spiritual/religious wedding abroad. One cool possibility is to have a traditional Mayan wedding ceremony – it’s a cosmic, shaman-led ceremony, and extraordinarily unique way to get married.
