Honeymoon Hotel Review – The Ritz-Carlton, Dubai

You Mean The World To Me

 

We were lucky enough that this was our second visit to the United Arab Emirate city of Dubai and so we knew what to expect…although having previously visited didn’t stop us from getting giddy with excitement as we came in to land over the iconic cityscape. Looking out the airplane window, a sea of lights sparkled in the dark, mapping out the streets below (and The Palm and The World!) that make up this dynamic desert conurbation.

Rachel from Find Your Perfect Venue tells us more:

“Mat and I have both worked in website development for many years. Our inspiration for setting up the site came when we realised how difficult it was to find venues online quickly and easily; we saw a gap in the online world of weddings and realised we could fill it by creating a site that allows you to simply browse for specific criteria, on one site, for venues fitting your personal preferences.”

Planning your wedding, after all, should be fun!”

Honeymoon Hotel Review – Aguas De Ibiza, Santa Eulalia, Ibiza

12/08/2013 | 0

Aguas1

 

The pretty resort of Santa Eulalia (the third largest town in Ibiza) is a mere 20minute drive from Ibiza airport. Keeping its traditional Spanish charm, you’ll find tables lining the pavements outside colourful cafes and bars where the locals enjoy a cool beer and afternoon tapas. This is somewhere to enjoy relaxation and restaurants rather than dancing and DJ’s.

“We decided to get married in May 2012 and started planning a ‘typical’ British wedding however it just didn’t feel right and in October 2012 we decided that we wanted to get married in Thailand with a few special friends and family.”

 

“When we were travelling we had never been to Khao Lak, however we had heard that it was meant to be beautiful so we started to look for hotels in this area. We found Apsara and it looked idyllic – on the beach, secluded and hardly any people around! We knew that this was the place and started to arrange it with the hotel.”

Real bride review:

“Hogarths hotel was the first venue I visited and when my bridesmaid and I stood on ‘the island’ in the hotel grounds, surrounded by bluebells, we knew it was the perfect place for me and my hubby-to-be to tie the knot.”

“Choosing the date was easy, we knew we wanted a spring wedding and one of the only available dates was 27th May, which was a bank holiday weekend – everything just seemed to fall into place.

Once the date was secured Hogarths were absolutely amazing and finalizing the details was a joy. They made everything so easy – we were able to make everything really personal and they helped with all the big things like timings of the ceremony, the food and the drinks.”
