elite island resorts st james club honeymoon


Earlier this year I was super excited to recieve an email from Elite Island Resorts & Kuoni inviting BLOVED to be a part of this year’s Bridal Blogathon in the Caribbean!  While I was sadly unable to attend (note to self: I’m owed a trip to the Caribbean) regular BLOVED Contributor – and fab travel photographer – Claire Graham stepped in to attend on my behalf.  Over the next four weeks she’ll be sharing the gorgeous images and experiences from her trip, starting with an intro to the Bridal Blogathon concept…

In early April, I was delighted to be selected to represent BLOVED for the Elite Island Bridal Blogathon. Now I hear you say, what is a Bridal Blogathon!? The sequel to last years successful Barbados Blogathon & Elite Island Hopathon, this year the Elite Island team partnered up with Kuoni and invited four UK wedding bloggers to experience the service and care that goes into planning a wedding or honeymoon abroad – Caribbean style!

Held over four weeks in May, each hosting a different blogger, the team showcased wedding and honeymoon options at Elite Island Resorts on Barbados, Antigua and St Lucia. With our own Caribbean travel schedules overlapping, we got to catch up with each other to pass on the bridal blogathon bouquet, swap Caribbean stories over delicious cocktails and tweet our experiences!

Kelly from Boho Weddings started the adventure in St Lucia, handing over the bouquet to me in Antigua to continue the adventure; spending 4 days there and 3 in Barbados.  Next up was Clare from Bridal Musings, visiting Barbados and Antigua, and finishing the incredible journey, Sonia from Want that Wedding in Antigua (where she renewed her vows!) and finishing the whole trip in St. Lucia.

Each blogger will be sharing their stories online, and on Twitter – just follow the hashtag #bridalblogathon – and join me next week to hear all about the start of my trip at the St James Club Resort in amazing Antigua.

Claire is a fine art photographer with her style defined with the use of natural available light, soft colour tones and styled pretty details. She loves to photograph people in love, they are a constant source of inspiration.
