Pick a Romantic Hotel

The first step to your Disney-themed honeymoon is picking a romantic hotel. Choose a hotel that represents your favourite Disney movies or themes. Pick one that resonates with your romantic vision, whether a fairy-tale castle, tropical paradise, or safari. Look for Disney resorts that offer special honeymoon packages that include amenities like couples’ massages, private dining experiences, and in-room surprises, such as rose petals and champagne. It’s also a good idea to consider a hotel with concierge services that can help personalise your stay.

The hotel’s proximity to Disney parks and attractions is a crucial factor to consider. Staying within the resort area allows easy access to the parks and convenient transportation options, saving time for romantic adventures. Also, look for hotels that offer secluded areas or private accommodations for you to enjoy quiet moments together away from the crowds.

Book hotels with various dining options, from fine-dining restaurants to casual eateries featuring local and international cuisines. Consider booking a romantic dinner at a signature restaurant with an enchanting ambience.
Once you have a potential hotel to book, research online reviews and recommendations from other honeymooners to gauge the hotel’s overall experience and romantic atmosphere.

Lucy and Vince’s Vibrant and Colourful Wild Garden Warwick Wedding by Babb Photo

Today I am taking you to Warwick for the bright and beautiful wedding of Lucy and Vince, a unique day full colour and so much fun and laughter. Lucy and Vince were married at Hatton House in Warwick with 230 of their nearest and dearest friends and family. They held a truly memorable day with lots of personal details and gorgeous decoration. Their theme was lots of vibrant colour and lots of flowers with a wild garden feel. The couple kept the colourful theme going with their wedding outfits, Vince wore an orange suit and Lucy wore a multi-coloured dress and they both looks amazing. They kept an informal feel by not having a seated dinner, and going for a buffet instead. They partied under the stars till late into the night, while their guests slept in bell tents around the main wedding marquee. A fabulous day, all captured perfectly by Babb Photo.

Ask The Experts: The Best Destinations for Eco-Friendly Honeymoons

Eco-friendly honeymoons focus on minimising environmental impact while maximising sustainable practices. These honeymoons often involve staying in eco-friendly lodges, engaging in low-impact activities like hiking or wildlife conservation, supporting local communities, and reducing carbon footprint through eco-friendly transportation options, all while appreciating and preserving natural habitats and resources.

Here are some of the best destinations for eco-friendly honeymoons.

Patagonia, Chile

Patagonia offers couples opportunities to immerse in the breathtaking beauty of its pristine wilderness while minimising environmental impact. As one of the best destinations for eco-friendly honeymoons, Patagonia has several eco-friendly lodges and sustainable hotels that prioritise environmental conservation and minimise their carbon footprint.

Couples should take advantage of Patagonia’s extensive network of hiking trails to explore its stunning landscapes up close. Exploring on foot is a more sustainable way to explore a destination. When sightseeing, choose guided eco-tours that promote responsible tourism practices and support local conservation efforts.

Patagonia is a popular destination for hiking. Thus, one of the best things to do on your honeymoon is to explore one of its trails, such as the Torres del Paine Circuit. The iconic trek offers breathtaking vistas of pristine wilderness and towering peaks. When hiking in Patagonia, respect the natural environment by packing out all waste, minimising campfire impacts, and staying on designated trails to protect fragile ecosystems.

Always bring reusable water bottles when hiking or sightseeing. That way, you can help minimise plastic waste and reduce your environmental footprint. Lastly, consider investing in carbon offset programs to mitigate the environmental impact of your travel and support renewable energy projects in Patagonia.

California, USA

With its diverse landscapes, sustainable accommodations, eco-conscious dining options, and opportunities for outdoor exploration, California is one of the best destinations for eco-friendly honeymoons. Honeymooners will have plenty of places to explore while minimising their environmental impact and celebrating their lives as newlyweds.

California has numerous eco-conscious accommodations, such as LEED-certified hotels and eco-lodges supporting sustainable tourism practices. Renting hybrid or electric vehicles for transportation is another way to reduce carbon emissions while exploring California’s scenic highways and coastal routes.

Couples should engage in outdoor activities like hiking in state and national parks, such as Yosemite, Joshua Tree, or Redwood National Park. It’s the most sustainable way to appreciate California’s natural beauty. When dining or shopping, support local and organic restaurants and farmers’ markets that promote sustainable agriculture and reduce food miles. 

California offers honeymooners plenty of opportunities to enjoy eco-friendly activities like wildlife watching, beach clean-ups, or volunteering for environmental organisations. These activities foster a deeper connection to California’s ecosystems. 

By embracing eco-friendly practices and prioritising sustainability throughout their honeymoon, couples can celebrate their love for each other while helping to save planet Earth.

Lisa and Dino were married on 9th September 2023  at Masseria Amastuola, in Puglia, Italy. ‘We decided to get married on a road trip we did in Australia in 2018. Everything was so smooth, we had lots of fun and lived in a 4×4 for 4 months while travelling all around the Outback; including visiting as many wine regions as we could! We had approximately 100 guests, as for planning a few months became a few years thanks to COVID.’
