ASHLEY & TERRENCE’S BOHO GLAM WEDDING IN LAKE COMO

If you’re a lover of the beautiful boho styling of much acclaimed bridal gown design house Daughters Of Simone then you’re going to love today’s magic Lake Como wedding because it’s the wedding of the co-designer herself! And if you thought this occasion was going to be understated, it’s what destination dreams are made of.

INSIDE THE PHOTO: HANGING GARDENS OF BALI

Located to the North of Ubud, in the midst of the jungle, you’ll find the award-winning Hanging Gardens of Bali. After being titled as having the world’s best swimming pool, I can’t imagine a more serene place to cool off and you can see why.

SARAH & RORY’S SWEDISH ELOPEMENT AT THE ICE HOTEL

Can we just state right now, there are few places in the world that capture a winter lovers heart as much as a hotel made of ice and winter skies of Northern Lights. Oh yes, you read that right, because today we’re sharing the amazing winter elopement o two Aussies – Sarah and Rory and their snow and ice-filled, utterly magic wedding day.

PART ONE OF GEORGIE & PHIL’S “HONEYMOON OF THEIR DREAMS” IN FORMENTERA, SPAIN

Working out where to honeymoon is tricky. ‘Wedmin’ is full on and was basically all I did for the last 9 months (not when I was at work *cough* obviously *cough*). But deciding where to honeymoon was a decision I did not take lightly or want to mess up.

HOW TO MINI-MOON IN FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND

We shouldn’t say it, but sometimes we secretly think that the honeymoon is the best part of a wedding! Yet with hectic social lives, family to look after and high-powered careers to contend with – let alone the cost on top of the wedding celebrations themselves – we don’t wonder why some couples are forgoing their honeymoon completely or opting for a mini-moon a.k.a. shortened honeymoon.

If you’re short on time, we’ve created a sweet mini-moon itinerary for you to tropical Port Douglas and The Daintree region. After all, tropical weather and chilled out vibes are always welcome on any honeymoon. Not so welcome: passports, checking lines and super long flights!

TASMANIA – THE PERFECT WEDDING & “MINI-MOON” LOCATION RIGHT ON YOUR DOORSTEP!

An hour flight from Melbourne and you land right in the middle of what I consider one of the most beautiful places in Australia (okay I might be biased because I live here!) Tasmania. The Island State and home to amazing national parks, gorgeous beaches and some of the best food our country has to offer.

8 MEMORABLE WAYS TO GET HITCHED IN PORT DOUGLAS & DAINTREE!

If there’s one thing that really sets the scene for your big day, it’s your choice of ceremony and reception venue. Whether eloping or embracing the whole big, white destination wedding thing, tropical destinations are popular for obvious reasons (hello, sunshine!). But a toes-in-the-sand wedding is certainly not your only option.

HONEYMOON LIKE A LOCAL: ON THE GOLD COAST

As a Melbournian who relocated to the Goldie a few years back, I am always blown away at how many of our holiday guests are commenting that there is so much more to the Gold Coast than theme parks, surf, sun and high rises and those infamous meter maids.

Underneath it all is an ever evolving foodie culture, an array of healthy activities and a community of locals who are so truly genuine and accommodating, everyone is always welcome. The Gold Coast makes for the perfect place for Honeymooners wanting a little bit of everything!

A LOVELY LITTLE LYALL – A REVIEW OF THE LYALL HOTEL

Pomp and circumstance often comes with checking into a grand hotel. There are serious nods of the head, clipped sentences, and an atmosphere that says please don’t giggle or act anything less than serious. Something about a grand hotel makes you stand to attention, even when you know you’re just one of many hundreds, if not thousands of people to cross that threshold every day.

When it comes to a wedding day or pre-wedding celebrations, the idea of checking in somewhere can be intimidating. That comfort of home, on the craziest of times in our life, is something that we can so desperately crave.
