Unveiled: thoughts on wedding planning

Just a newlywed, sitting in front of a blank page, hoping this is useful. A wedding planner I am not. But recently married with a penchant for planning and opinions I am. I know that I wanted to devour all the wedding content I could […]

Our Wedding

Our Wedding

Our wedding may have been just over a year in the making but our marriage has been a nine year work in progress. Tom and I have been an “us” since 2010. Together we have run wild and grown up. Travelled the world and built […]

Switzerland

Switzerland

An Alpine adventure is always a good idea and determined as always to make the most of holiday allowance/lapses in the acting-sphere, we ventured to Switzerland for some Autumn sightseeing. Having never been to Switzerland before, we chose to fly into Geneva (the cheapest option) […]

Summer Engagement Party

Getting engaged last spring was one of the most exciting times of my life. That blissful bubble of the first few months is full of feelings you want to bottle (and then proceed to bathe in 7ish months later when you’re drowning in RSVPs, or […]

Phuket

If Bangkok was our Thai starter, Phuket was the perfect main course. An easy and picturesque flight away from the capital city, as the descent from the clouds begins rugged islands emerge from the water and the coastline seems endlessly tipped with golden shores. This […]

Bangkok

Bangkok

Two nights in Bangkok. A potential follow-up to the Chess original that in our case would feature fewer board games and more night markets and questionable taxi drivers. I was intrigued by Bangkok and all its brash grandeur but had a strong sense it wasn’t going to […]

16 days in Thailand and Vietnam

16 days in Thailand and Vietnam

From the tropical terrain of northern Thailand to the blissful beaches of the south. The vibrant capital of Vietnam and the tranquil, turquoise, rock-studded waters that await several hours to the east. We spent 16 days in Thailand and Vietnam taking in everything from jungles […]
