If, as you say, unregistered marriages in Mexico are not recognised by UK immigration law then you are not going to get a spouse visa.
Are you sure you applied for a spouse visa, not any other kind of visas?

What's the point of 'Keep your passport' service offered by VFS?

Thought the whole idea was to allow people to travel to other countries when the UK visa is in process.

That's absolutely right, we also picked that option and currently awaiting for the decision in some other country (Turkey )
But once you will know that decision is taken you will have to go back to collect the vignette. I also tried to ask for the possibility of collecting the vignette in Turkey, but this doesn't work sadly. Although that would be much easier for everyone.

Are you applying for a spouse visa or ILR from within the UK?

If the application is made in the UK, then you definitely cannot leave the country as the intention to make UK your home is contradicted.

We plan to get married in the UK under UK law as marriages in Mexico are not recognised in the UK unless registered.

What I am reading online is that if we apply for a visitor visa, it would defacto cancel her spouse visa application as the Home Office has one application at a time rule.​​

Who told you that marriages in Mexico are not recognized in the UK? That’s false, both countries are part of the Apostille Convention, therefore the only thing you need to do is to get the Apostille in Mexico, you don’t need to marry again, better said they won’t get you married again. You could have a ceremony if that’s what you want but legally you’re already married.

The option of keeping your passport is to alloy you to travel as some people need to travel for work or even holidays while waiting for the response. But once the decision is made you need to take the passport back to the same place where you started the process.

Hello guys!
There are quite a few groups on Facebook - for those who applied or planning to apply for spouse visa in the UK. There is a lot of useful info in there.
