I dont know about you, but when it comes to the day when I will have to decide where I want to go on my honeymoon, it is going to be one heck of a choice. I have so many places I want to visit in my lifetime, but I really think a honeymoon should be a bit more than ‘just a holiday’. It should be that one special vacation, a once in a lifetime experience. Thankfully, I should have a few more years before myself and Mr T have to make that decision, but for now we have invited travel consultant, Fiona Bickmore from boutique-hotel experts Mr & Mrs Smith for her top five honeymoon destinations. These are truly romantic hideaways with something to suit every pair of newlyweds. Read on for a few of her favourites…

Road trip your way through South Africa

With intense natural beauty, incredible wildlife and jaw-dropping scenery, South Africa is a dream destination for a wild-at-heart couple seeking a unique honeymoon. A road trip is the best way to explore everything the country has to offer: start in Cape Town and stay at chic bolthole Kensington Place on the slopes of Table Mountain – it’s just a short drive to the beach. From there, head down the stunning coast to Birkenhead House in Hermanus, a breezy boutique beach house with breathtaking ocean views, where you can while away your post-wedding stay watching whales from the private infinity pool on the cliff’s edge.

Tuscany, Italy

Italy is the ultimate destination for gourmand lovers. I love its culinary culture and picturesque cities – it’s also incredibly romantic, with fantastic countryside vistas and beautiful Mediterranean views. Many hotels offer cooking classes with locally grown ingredients – one of my favourites is Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany, which also serves up wine-tasting tours for two. Or perhaps Florence, the classic Italian lover’s city, is more your style? Stay at Gallery Hotel Art, just by the Ponte Vecchio: the hotel’s bar is famous for the tastiest cocktails in town.
