Why Santorini is Top of My Travel Bucket List

Although travelling abroad is not something I would feel comfortable or confident doing just yet, I have been spending some of lockdown reassessing my travel bucket list, looking ahead to a time post Covid-19 when hopefully travel will return to at least some semblance of normal. Topping my list for international travel is Santorini. I have only been once before but it’s safe to say it made an impact, and...

Wedding Wednesday – How I Really Found Planning a Wedding Abroad

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you may know that around this time last year, I was under a huge amount of stress, deep in the final preparations for our wedding in Santorini on 2nd September. Things went from bad to worse, when the already useless travel company we had the wedding booked with ended up messing things up even more and, with just a few weeks left...

I promise I will shut up after this post (well, until I go dress shopping, bridesmaid dress shopping, ring shopping etc, etc- yeah, I’m never shutting up about weddings from this point on).  So anyway, you may remember seeing that Ed and I won a wedding package with Perfect Weddings Abroad last week and we were...

I Only Went and Won our Santorini Wedding! 

Erm so yeah, big news… Kind of gave it away a bit in the title, but can’t really blame me, it’s pretty flipping exciting news!     I am one of those people who never win anything, so when I entered a competition with Perfect Weddings Abroad around Christmas, I didn’t really think about it again until I was sent an email congratulating me on winning my wedding in Santorini.    ...
