Greek island hopping is a popular choice for honeymoons, and it’s easy: hopping on a ferry with stunning island views is a wonderful way to spend a morning! I love this particular property for its perfect location overlooking the water and its chic Scandinavian-inspired interiors – the restaurant is top notch too.

Monteverdi, Tuscany, Italy

Italy comes up again and again as a honeymoon hotspot – there are so many stunning areas to choose from and September is the perfect time to visit, as the scorching heat of August starts to recede. Monteverdi is a beauty – it’s in a mediaeval hamlet and rooms are a mix of rustic and contemporary.

Ventana Inn & Spa, Big Sur, California

The ultimate road trip is California’s Highway 1: it’s an iconic drive with incredible ocean views. Big Sur is two-thirds of the way up the coast from Los Angeles to San Francisco and top of my hotel hit list would be Ventana Inn & Spa in the forest. Interiors are inspired by the location – choose the Cottage House for your ultimate honeymoon suite

Mallorca is having a moment – we’re seeing a lot of demand, and it’s definitely up there at the top of the hip-honeymoons list. Font Santa is just 20 minutes from Palma so it’s easy to reach, and rooms are styled with natural materials and a neutral palette; white and grey tones reflect the glorious sunshine. There’s a great bar too that’s perfect for cocktails at sunset..

Maia Luxury Resort & Spa, Mahé, Seychelles

If you’ve got the budget for a blow-out trip then here’s where to spend it: the Seychelles are stunning in September. This property is simply incredible; you’ll have a personal butler on call 24 hours a day and it ticks all the boxes for the ultimate honeymoon hotel, without becoming cliched: palm trees rippling in the warm breeze and turquoise waters lapping white sand…

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
