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.
Romantic honeymoons can be slightly different depending on your preferences. One couples idea of romance can be walks on a deserted island, and the other a joint bungee jump off a bridge in New Zealand
For seclusion and solitude then places like Mauritius
and the Maldives
are a haven for private beaches, romantic settings and beautiful surroundings. Think about yourself walking down the beach hand in hand along a breath-taking coastline, the clear blue waters lapping at your feet, before heading back to your honeymoon villa to watch the sunset.
We are spending a few days "down under" looking at some great places to get married or go on honeymoon.
Where better to start than Sydney, where we found a great little reception venue on the edge of the quay between The Sydney Opera House and Sydney's iconic bridge; Peter Doyle @ The Quay.
don’t always have to be on white sandy beaches or situated close to tropical lagoons. If you look in the right places then winter getaways can be just as romantic. Swap sand between your toes and shorts for scarves and ski jackets. Here’s a few winter honeymoon ideas
How about going ‘rustic’? Find a cabin or chalet and snuggle up together by the fire. Spend the day on the slopes before heading back to a nice warm cabin for a roaring fire, romantic dinner and a wine for two. Honeymoon heaven!
Ski for two
- It doesn’t matter if you’re beginners or seasoned skiers hitting the slopes at a top ski resort can be a memorable honeymoon. Take a lesson together, most resorts offer private lessons and you can pick up this adrenaline packed sport together. A ski honeymoon takes you to unforgettable locations, offers unrivalled views and a holiday to remember.
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.
Ever wondered what the ultimate wedding abroad would be?
Well how about your own private island in the Bahamas, 10 of your closest friends and your very own chapel set in the middle of pristine white beaches? Sounds good right?
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.
We are jolted awake at 4.45am by a loud wailing. The adjacent mosque is calling the faithful to the first service of the day, with the aid of loud speakers pointing in our direction.
With the promise of more clear blue skies and temperatures soaring well into the 40's, early morning is a great time to relax on the shady roof terrace with a book, freshly squeezed orange juice and strong Moroccan coffee.
We stepped out from the cool walls of the Riad Capaldi
straight into the middle of a game of football in the narrow lane outside, and dodged footballs, mopeds, bicycles and donkeys on the way to find a taxi to take us outside the city walls to the Delano Hotel, a new "baby grand" boutique hotel on the edge of the city, renowned for its stunning spa and authentic hamman.
