New England Honeymoon

Anyone who knows me personally will tell you New England and me go hand in hand, which makes it so funny that I had never been there – until now.  I have always wanted to spend time in New England and have always loved everything that people associate with that part of the world: Seafood, Boats, Stripes, Seaside cottages. I have always found myself inspired by these things; our home, our wedding and our lives are surrounded by elements of New England. We are just back from our wonderful Honeymoon exploring the delights of Cape Cod and beyond and it was worth the wait! We rented a cottage on the beach for one week and then did some travelling to Nantucket and Newport, other pretty parts of New England.

The food was as good as I could have imagined. Its such an exciting place for food with so much fresh produce, wonderful artisans and of course, coastal cuisine that is a force to be reckoned with. We pretty much ate our way round the honeymoon and now have rolled home totally inspired! Here are just a few beautiful pictures to inspire you too. Another bonus for you all, we were given a fabulous camera as a wedding gift so hopefully my photography skills will be developed further and may actually resemble something decent eventually!
