wedding gifting with Jack Daniels | uk wedding blog

facebook-profile-picture By Phoebe

Good evening all! If you are a long time reader of the blog you will know that I am partial to a gin. But what you may not know is that my taste stretches to all spirits and wine. Not beer. Don’t get beer. My second favourite tipple is whiskey. When Jack Daniels sent my a super cute box of love including their single barrel I was very excited to move the gin to one side and have a few whiskeys.

Honeymooning at Shangri La’s Le Touessrok, Mauritius | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

Do you have a picture in your head when you think of paradise? Of course, there’s the textbook dream of a white sandy beach with palm trees and clear lapping waves {of which this review will feature plenty} but when you actually think about it, paradise means so much more. It’s about finding your ideal heavenly place. If you’re like me you might have already created a dream list of the kind of features you’d want from a honeymoon? You’d want at least one pool? Impeccable service with a smile? White sandy beaches for sure with different areas to relax in at different times of the day. {side note – my parents list would even include an iron and ironing board in their room as one of their top criteria, no joke!}. When I went to stay at Shangri La’s Le Touessrok resort in Mauritius a couple of weeks back, I was amazed by not just how many things the resort ticked off my dream list, but by the fact that they even had things I hadn’t even thought about. Festoon lights!! Sofas in the sand. A tropical fruit beach bar. Even waiter service by segway. If you’re looking for honeymoon inspiration in the Indian Ocean you’re in for a treat today. Go grab a biscuit and let me tell you all about it… Read More

How to book the best honeymoon flight deals. The Ultimate Guide | UK WEDDING BLOG

facebook-profile-picture By Rebecca

Hello!! After a little summer break where I was busy finishing renovating my house {the final bits where you think you should be almost done always take the longest right?}, the dust has disappeared and we can finally put down the tools. Which means I can get back to talking to you about my favourite subject again, honeymoons/travel! It was good timing as I expect you’ve been busy on your travels or honeymooning after getting married this summer anyway so you didn’t need any help from me? But if you’re new around here, or have something to plan for next year then I’m back and here to give you alll the inspiration and unsponsored completely honest advice. We have, and always will, promise to only ever recommend places {or travel agents} that I would want to honeymoon with myself {and trust me, I’m the pickiest!!}. This doesn’t mean the most expensive either, I want to keep sharing a range of my hand-picked collection – from Cornwall to California, Europe to the Indian Ocean and beyond. We have some fun ideas lined up, and a few hotel reviews that I think you will love {Mauritius, Barcelona, NYC and Sri Lanka are coming soon!}, but if you have a specific destination you’d like us to help you plan or if you have no idea at all then feel free to get in touch either via email or Instagram and we can put together a little guide for you.

Today I wanted to share some info on how I book the best flights. My husband and I travel a lot each year and have done for about the last 10 years, partly for work trips but also for personal trips too so I’ve learned a few helpful tips along the way. Unless you want to stay in the U.K or take the Eurostar/drive to Europe, booking flights will be a crucial part of your honeymoon.Read More
