Planning on booking your honeymoon for 2018 and don't know where to start looking? We've picked out five of our favourite honeymoon destinations to help inspire you...
Excited brides, keen suppliers and a whole section for Destination Weddings & Honeymoons, The National Wedding Show in the NEC Birmingham was buzzing. Crowds gathered to see the jaw-dropping dresses on the catwalk - definitely a must to see for inspiration. Whilst walking around amongst the masses there were certainly many stalls that grabbed our attention but we've put together a selection of some of them that really stuck in our minds.
The city of Marrakech is the number one honeymoon destination for Moroccans, and a favourite bolt-hole for French dignitaries and celebrities.
After a couple of nights at The Capaldi, 40 minutes from the Marrakech, we were ready to spend a night in the very heart of this busy city.
The Medina is the ancient centre of the city, a maze of tiny alleyways and lanes between souks (markets), riads (small hotels) and intricately carved historical sites. No building can be taller than the main Mosque so from any of the rooftop terraces there seems a sense of uniformity above the chaos below. The lanes are too narrow for cars so we finished our journey to the Riad Capaldi with our luggage in a bicycle barrow.

Well throw in 12 staff including chefs, butlers, a maid service and a gardener; you’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve turned into Richard Branson.
It is hard to remember the wet grey chill of Gatwick as I step off the airplane just three hours later to clear blue skies and 43 degree heat in Marrakech.
Morocco now rivals Dubai for short breaks with virtually guaranteed sunshine, and it is easy to see why. Numerous airlines, including Easyjet and Ryanair, offer an inexpensive 3 hour flight to Marrakech, there is no time difference, and for those looking for a romantic break, unlike Dubai it is still a fairly unspoiled and adult place to visit.
Why has Hawaii become one of the most popular honeymoon destinations over the past few years?
Probably because once you get out of the more ‘touristy’ Waikiki the other islands are breathtakingly beautiful and serene.
Places like Kauai and Lanai give you complete privacy, with an air that’s filled with exotic, mesmerising fragrances from the many tropical flowers. Read More
