3 heavenly green winter honeymoons

For our final post in our slightly extended Winter Weddings month, we’re looking at the honeymoon.  Can you really have fun without the sun (well, a warm sun anyway)? I’m following in my parents’ footsteps here (they opted for Northumberland in November 1974) and keeping our choices UK-bound – cold but hopefully cosy. So, first [...]

For today’s post, we invited Laura of Magnetic North Travel to share her tips on planning a wedding in magical Scandinavia.  Over to Laura… The countries of Scandinavia have strong green credentials – it’s hardly surprising when you think about the beauty of their natural assets such as the fjords of Norway and fells of [...]

If you’re anything like me, I bet the honeymoon brochures have been piling up around your sofa and downtime at work has drifted into honeymoon daydreaming with a little help from your friendly [...]

After 10 glorious days in sunny Spain we’re back! It was great to completely ‘desconectar’ (no internet, no computers) for a while…and it’s taking a bit of getting used to being plugged in again (that’s our excuse for not replying to any emails yet anyway!). We decided for this holiday we’d go the low carbon [...]

Happy New Year! I hope you had a good break and enjoyed the season’s festivities. Christmas is such a romantic time of year, I’m sure there were a few fourth fingers wearing nice new rings come January…?
