This experience is called the 'Marry Oneself Journey', it's a four day retreat at the Rosewood Mayakoba near Playa del Carmen.

This personalized, once in a lifetime experience focuses on the theme of self-love and connecting with your inner self while taking inspiration from ancient Mayan traditions.

Led by the hotel's resident Shaman, this journey will guide you through unique experiences within its four pillars: Shaman Encounter, Elements of Nature, Rituals of Touch and the culminating Marry Oneself Ceremony.

Activities include an aquatic therapy session, a beach walk, a steam session and a session with drumming and singing bowls.

What's more, the brides and grooms-to-be can take advantage of the luxurious spa surroundings and can have access to treatments such as facials, massages, hand and feet treatments and will even have their own skincare package to take home.

The ceremony is not religious and doesn't interfere with any other beliefs you have, you just have to be open to learning about Mayan traditions.

You'll have to write your own vows and give yourself a promise of "a lifetime of happiness; self-compassion, and self-love" all guided by the hotel resident Shaman.

Where does the ceremony take place? Most of it takes place in the hotel's spa, which is home to its own island in the resort, which itself stretches to 1600 acres. On one side there is a mile of sandy beaches and on the other side is or the jungle of the Riviera Maya.

So whether you are single, engaged or married, take a leap of faith and commit to yourself in this unique wedding ceremony.
