This year, our Mother’s Day activity focuses on the good stuff: Cosy conversations over a mug of tea. It goes without saying that everyone can enjoy a quintessentially English cream tea. What’s more elegant than afternoon tea in the capital? Whilst London exudes a certain glamour, you can get the best of both worlds by taking this Sunday to show your mum some love – whether it be at a fancy hotel, or, at your own kitchen table. Afternoon tea makes the perfect Mother’s Day Treat and, it also offers the chance to get excited over all those wedding details you might be planning together! Any excuse, right? 😍

February, the month of love. In Italy, that’d be l’amore. Valentine’s Day itself originated here, with Shakespeare penning Romeo and Juliet set in romantic Verona. With spots like the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, Capri and Venice seen as idylls, it’s no wonder that the popularity of Italy as the backdrop to the ideal wedding has soared. We’d have to agree that it’s second to none for intimacy, declarations and serenades. If you’re looking for an exquisite destination wedding, Italy has plenty to offer from it’s sprawling coastal shores to it’s evergreen olive groves and quaint towns nestled in the hillside…
