Minimoon in the UK
Over recent years the idea of a minimoon in the UK has rapidly grown in popularity. With many couples even choosing to have their honeymoon on home turf. Now with the recent pandemic the popularity of minimoons and honeymoons in the UK is set to soar as travel to other popular honeymoon destinations abroad is restricted.
Planning a wedding during a pandemic can be a very stressful task. As if planning a wedding isn’t stressful enough, with trying to find ‘the one’ when it comes to the dress, and an overwhelming choice of flowers, invitations and everything in between!
