Before you get married the word mini-moon will probably mean nothing to you. In fact, I’m not sure I even knew it existed.
But all of a sudden you’re swept away in a luxurious bubble of wedding planning and of course you’ll want to go on a mini-moon before your actual honeymoon. I mean, who wouldn’t? You might as well make the most of feeling spoilt, happy and silly-in-love. A few nights away to chill out straight after your wedding is a brilliant idea.
Below is an article I wrote for Wedding Ideas magazine on a perfect place to have a mini-moon here in old Blightly. Well, in the picturesque and romantic New Forest to be exact. A weekend jolly at The Pig (a fabulous country house hotel) in Hampshire was the perfect start to life as newly weds before we jetted off on a full honeymoon a few months later.
