Today help is at hand for all of you planning an amazing honeymoon. There are just so many choices and it's hard to know where to go, and when, so we are lucky to have Mr & Mrs Smith answering your questions live this morning. The idea for Mr & Mrs Smith was sparked when co founders James Lohan and Tamara Heber-Percy spent a dreary weekend away in a so called ‘boutique hotel’; on their return they resolved to rescue couples from lacklustre minibreaks by self publishing a guide book, which appeared on shelves in 2003. Today Smith is a global online booking service with more than 900 pulse quickening stays; but at heart, they’re still incurable romantics, with a soft spot for honeymoons. If you’re a bride (or groom) to-be planning a post wedding trip, and you need a little advice, Smith travel consultant Alexandra Cagney – a French and Spanish speaking wanderer with a passion for Latin America and samba – is here to help, whether you want a short but very sweet minimoon or screw the budget multistop getaway. Alexandra will be online from 9.30am to 1pm, to answer all honeymoon related ponderings, so questions at the ready.
Alexandra Cagney: Honeymoons are one of the most important holidays you’ll plan – no pressure – your first trip as Mr & Mrs should be about making memories and discovering exciting new things together: it might be something simple like trying a new wine, or more adventurous like climbing a frozen waterfall. It’s also a great excuse for booking a trip you’ve always dreamed about; to take some of the stress out of the planning (alongside a wedding), I recommend talking to an expert, like myself, who can make a set in stone plan a reality, or offer some tried and loved suggestions.
