Olly and LaurenAfter our amazing wedding that we would happily do again tomorrow, we got impatient and decided waiting for Olly’s Australian Visa to come through before taking our big overseas honeymoon was going to be too long of a wait!

We chose Scott Beach, a crescent of unspoiled fine-sand beach, as our oceanfront home for our honeymoon, and we found out that during most of the year, the resort doesn’t book families with children here.
