Mr & Mrs Smith began as a boutique hotel guidebook publisher in 2003 and is now an online booking service with an eye for hip honeymoons and a curated collection of more than 900 romantic hotels around the world. I found my most favourite hotel in the whole of the universe via Mr & Mrs Smith, Chateau Les Merles in the Dordogne and have always found their service and communication better than anyone else I have ever used in terms of booking getaway accommodation.
Many of you will no doubt be considering your honeymoon destinations right about now (or perhaps just a lovely relaxing break away at some point soon – I know I am!) and to help you with your decision making process we’ve got Mr and Mrs Smith Travel consultant Susannah Garcia who has three years of expertise, to share her top three itineraries for newlyweds.
Susannah will be on-line this morning and over lunchtime to answer any questions you may have regarding planning your trip of a lifetime, and that’s any questions folks, so make the most of the opportunity and get asking the expert!
Happy Thursday to all the lovvvers; I hope you had a lush Val Day with your beaus/babes/gal pals and families. For the record; we watched seven hours of Breaking Bad (we’re up to Season 4 Ep 3 – no spoilers please!) YES, we are seriously behind this social phenomenon, but ooh, was it amazing watching Heisenberg with a piccolo of Moët and munching on chocs? You bet your ass, yo! (we even put the tele in the bedroom as our special treat! Romance is alive in the Jackola residence!!)
Anyway, on to more appropriate conversation… I have to admit that this is the post I’ve been most looking forward to curate and write as a 2013/14 RMW Real Bride. I’m getting my FASH-ON. If you’re not a fash-a-holic, I make no apology, this is my Blue Crystal!
Albert Palmer always captures bucketloads of love and emotion in his gorgeous photographs and this is most definitely true of Stephen and Gemma’s big day too.
This beautiful pair were married at Leeds Cathedral by the Dean – Monsignor Philip Moger – who also happens to be Stephen’s uncle. I know…how special is that! There are peonies and roses, lace and sunshine and possibly one of the chicest, largest wedding parties I’ve seen in a long time.
I adore Gemma’s dress which suits her down to the ground and I think that it’s safe to say that Gemma’s dad agrees too. The emotional photo of him when he sees her for the first time gave me a lump in my throat and when I found out that he kept picking up her beautiful cathedral length veil in case it got dirty it almost tipped me over the edge.
Dad of the year award right there I think!
Come and have a look at this wonderful ‘I Do’…
If the title of this wedding hasn’t got your heart pumping already then honestly folks what the heck is wrong with you!
I promise you what you’re about to see is truly epic. This folks is how to do a super cool, super chic, city wedding.
Cheryl and Brooke married in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona at Santa Anna church and then whizzed off on Trixi bikes afterwards to their favourite champagne bar to celebrate. I’m told by David from Modern Vintage Weddings that they and their wedding party just rocked up in ten of these bikes and ordered 30 bottles of Champagne before heading to Hotel Mercer for dinner by Barcelona’s best chef.
How insanely rock and roll is that?
There are so many things I love about this wedding that I’d be here until Midnight listing them all for you but I will say that Cheryl’s headpiece is perhaps the most beautiful hair accessory I’ve seen this year and I absolutely most definitely need a gold lead embellished cake in my life.
Cheryl and Brooke…take it away!

We are on RMW home turf this morning with a beautiful contemporary wedding in the midlands… Centre of the UK, centre of the universe and (for this morning at least) centre of the party. Kate and Dev married at 11am which, subsequently culminated in a bit of an ‘all dayer’ for their guests! Kate and Dev’s choice of entertainment combined with regular breaks for fine food kept the party raging into the early hours… Well done guys!
