London wedding night #3,578

Wedding night rooms of our dreams, part 3,578: River suite at the @corinthislondon. We haven't slept in that bed… but Rachel totally touched that wallpaper after taking this picture, and it was blue silky marvellousness.

Solange’s honeymoon is my second-favourite honeymoon

Second favourite after our own honeymoon, of course. If we did it again, Uxua Casa in Brazil would be high on our list: it’s a great favourite of our super model mamá Tillie, it’s the Mr & Mrs Smith best hotel in the world 2014, and it’s run by deeply stylish people named things like Piero.

Morocco honeymoon: Riad Dar Maya

Rachel reviewed Riad Dar Maya hotel in Essaouira for Mr & Mrs Smith. Read all about it:

“My personal Marrakech-to-Essaouira playlist probably wouldn’t have included German power ballad ‘Wind of Change’ by Scorpions but it was our sharp-suited driver’s CD, and he didn’t speak English so we went with it. By the time the unplugged recording of Hotel California (the audience was really loving that guitar solo) started up for the third time, my California boy was shaking with stifled hysteria and I attempted to speak French for the first time in over a decade. (Our driver, it turned out, was a delight.) Three hours, several Bon Jovi songs, and one shining-sea-as-our-backdrop photoshoot later, we arrived at Essaouira’s shoreline. We were handed over to a silent gent with a cart who whisked us through the gate in the medina wall and led us to Dar Maya…” — read the rest at Mr & Mrs Smith.

the little white book of honeymoons

Mr & Mrs Smith’s Little White Book of Honeymoons is brilliant for several reasons, not just because our Rachel wrote the guide to California road trips and some honeymoon photography tips so your Instagrams will be suitably envy-inducing. (Also, the Corfu Suite at Blakes is on the cover, after being voted Sexiest Bedroom at last year’s Smith Hotel Awards.)
