“Lots of couples have travelled or holidayed together before they get married, so they often come to us looking for something adventurous and different to make their honeymoon really memorable, but I think a honeymoon to a war zone would be an adventure too far!”, says Rosemarie Meleady wedding planner and MD of Runawaybrideandgroom.com.
“Most couples love the idea of somewhere private and secluded where they can be without interruption, so I am not surprised the yacht and Mauritius scored highly,” says Rosemarie.
