Honeymoon Travel Guide: Swimming with the Fishes on The Great Barrier Reef
December 9, 2013
One of my ultimate highlights of my trip to Queensland was snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. It wasn't something that I ever thought I'd have the opportunity to experience and I nearly squealed with delight when I found out that it was on our itinerary.

Honeymoon Travel Guide: Queensland – Dreamworld, Kangaroos & Cuddles with Brandy The Koala
November 20, 2013
When the initial email from Celeste at Tourism and Events Queensland came into The Blogcademy inbox asking us if we’d consider an all-expenses paid trip to Queensland I nearly deleted it, assuming it must be spam. I mean, this kind of opportunity doesn't exactly come knocking on your door everyday. After verifying that Celeste wasn't, in fact, just playing a rather cruel prank, we started to plan our epic adventure down under!
Don’t Want the Usual, Boring Gift Registry? Ask your Guests to Buy Your Honeymoon!
October 16, 2013
More couples than ever before are looking for alternative gift list ideas. Adding new pots and pans to a department store registry is about as exciting as it sounds, which is why so many newlyweds are opting to forgo the new linens and ask money towards getting started in their new married life or for something they've always wanted but could never afford.
Honeymoon Travel Guide: Santorini
Shell De Mar
October 7, 2013
I'm not going to pretend for one second that I'm some kind of expert in the world of travel or honeymoons. BUT you may have noticed that I've done rather a lot of globe-trotting over the past 12 months. And as we're about to launch our 2014 Blogcademy world tour in a couple of weeks it would appear that it's not really going to change any time soon!
So I figured, why not share some of the places I've visited and the experiences I've most enjoyed with you lovely lot? First up is a honeymooners paradise - Santorini.
Seven Reasons Why You Should Start a Honeymoon Registry with Traveler’s Joy
February 5, 2013
You might have guessed already, but 2013 is the year of travel for Rock n Roll Bride. I am scooting off to a scarily high number of far flung places all with The Blogcademy and I couldn't be more excited about it all. I can't wait to experience new things and have the time of my life doing it, all the while passing it off as work!
Cash Wedding Registries with Deposit a Gift
January 24, 2012
Earlier this month I went to lunch with one of my best and oldest friends, Katie. We've known each other for years, ever since we started skipping Sunday School together! Anyway, this lunch was extra special (and it wasn't just because we went to Wagamamas) because she told me she was getting married...in March! Yes in under 3 months time!
Anyway one of the first things we got talking about (after the dress of course) was the wedding gift registry. She told me they'd decided to go for the cash registry option and wanted to know if I thought it was 'tacky' to ask for money over gifts. They already live together, but they want to have the honeymoon of their lives. So, instead of asking for toasters, dinnerwear and cushions, they're asking people to contribute as much as they feel comfortable with towards their dream trip. They've added small things from as little as £5.50 for a favourite cocktail, all the way to a few hundred pounds for flights. I thought it was a great idea! Who needs another throw cushion anyway!?

You might remember Tim & Merrill's self-engagement shoot (and here) or their ridiculously amazing wedding. If so, you'll be just as excited to see their 'Honeyversary' shoot as I was yesterday. The couple are photographers and have just been married over a year. As they moved to New York pretty much straight after their wedding they never had time for a honeymoon so they decided to take a trip to Palm Springs this month.

So you're almost ready to tie the knot and you're getting into that fun bit amongst all the stress where you decide what you want to do for your gift registry.
