Last Monday myself and Alison had the pleasure of attending an evening held by Mr & Mrs Smith -the esteemed travel agency aimed at couples, at Blakes 5 star hotel in South Kensington. TV presenter Anna Richardson hosted the evening whilst we ate delicious canapés and chatted to influential honeymoon and travel bloggers.
Mr & Mrs Smith was created by married couple James Lohan and Tamara Herber-Percy in 2003 after a number of holidays spent at hotels that never lived up to the hype on the brochure. They created a guide book based on all of the things they wanted out of a hotel experience, published it independently and watched it grow into the online success that it is to this day. Mr & Mrs Smith offers over 950 fantastic hotels all over the world that have all been anonymously visited and reviewed by the travel team, as well as by visitors.
Their latest venture? Honeymoons. After ten years in the business, Mr & Mrs Smith are using their expertise to ensure that couples have an unforgettable holiday after tying the knot. With the release of their handy booklet ‘The Little White Book of Honeymoons’ and a hardworking Honeymoons team, booking your time away is simple. No matter your budget.
We also had an exclusive tour of Blakes’ exquisite honeymoon suites – each room featured beautiful use of colour and high ceilings; modest rooms from £330 still with four poster and high mounted bed. Blakes are licensed for civil ceremony.
I even had my photo taken in the magnificent 007 suite!
