Calling all ‘girl power gals’ preparing to pop the question on Wednesday 29 February!
The ladies who’ve got the gumption to ask their men to marry them this month will want a gung-ho honeymoon to match. Which is where Unique Honeymoons comes in – this new, inspirational magazine is jam-packed with more adventurous and out-of-the-ordinary honeymoon ideas, perfect for go-get-em women (and their lucky grooms, too).
Plus, if that isn’t reason enough to lure him down the aisle – there’s a financial one too. As from January 2013 the Church of England has announced they will be putting up the price of getting married in church to £415 from £295 – an increase of 40%. Just think of what you could spend the money you save getting wed this year on!
Traditional fly-n-flop honeymoons are well and truly on the way out anyway. So the experts at Unique Honeymoons have come up with the perfect 10 gung-ho honeymoons for those couples looking to say ‘I do’, then do something different, this year:
1 Climb Kilimanjaro, Tanzania’s mighty 5,895m mountain, just like feisty Cheryl Cole and Fearne Cotton
2 Learn how to use a blow-pipe amid the jungles of Borneo (useful skills for later married life, perhaps…?)
3 Stay at Ardanaiseig Boathouse, a one-bed lodge by a sparkling Scottish loch, and learn to fish, canoe and clay-pigeon shoot
4 Canoe out to Honeymoon Island, in Canada’s Northwest Territories – where Kate and Wills stayed on their first post-wedding royal tour
5 Bungee-jump together in New Zealand – take a tandem leap while touring the adrenalin-fuelled South Island
6 Gallop across the wild Kyrgyzstan steppe, to stay in a nomad’s yurt and snuggle up on yak-fur rugs
7 Take a plunge in a submarine off the coast of Mauritius, to add some James Bond action to your paradise island retreat
8 Check-in at Pacuare Lodge, Costa Rica – this riverside hideaway in the depths of the rainforest can only be reached by raft
9 Ride across Wadi Rum like Lawrence of Arabia – Jordan’s epic desert is the place to stay in a Bedouin camp and sleep out under the stars
10 Help build homes for locals or conserve wildlife, joining the growing number of newlyweds taking more ‘meaningful-moons’ – volunteering on honeymoon
