I'm going to skip blogging about the wedding day for now because I don't yet have my official photographs back. As soon as I do, they'll be up here right away! So, it's straight to the honeymoon, folks. Let's start with us flying in to paradise:

The flight wasn't so bad for me this time round. I had my usual couple of glasses of wine to calm my nerves but I think the excitement of having some of my favourite people on the plane took away from any fear. My friend was getting married on the island but we had no idea we'd be on the same flight in! We squealed and got terribly excited about the run-in, which probably annoyed other passengers but I'm sure they'd have done the same had they been in our shoes.

After touching down, we were welcomed at the airport by Qualia staff who would take care of our bags while we just worried about getting into the air-conditioned van that awaited us. A short drive later and we arrived at the resort, welcomed with my favourite view in the world (and a glass of champagne!)

Let's have a look around...

Should I become a lottery winner, I think I'd funnel some of my winnings into construction of a library such as this one, albeit brimming with fiction.

Now for the best bit: Our villa!

Soon after these champagnes were poured, we conked out on the daybed. When we came to, we had just enough time to cruise around the resort (on our golf buggy - the primary mode of transport on Hamilton Island) before the sky turned dark.

When we got back to our villa, we were greeted with a wee reminder that WE'D JUST GOTTEN MARRIED! Even now it's surreal to us - in the best way possible, of course.

...Stay tuned for part two!


  1. Congrats Anna. My friend also went here for her honeymoon last month and she said it was to die for! I'm wondering now we went to Hawaii instead?! LOL.

    1. Oh it's stunning, it really is.
      Having said that, I actually felt (only having seen Hawaii in films and TV) that Hamilton Island was a little like Hawaii to look at.
      Either way, sun and sand is gorgeous wherever in the world you can find it!

  2. Wow, this truly looks like paradise, that villa is to die for!!

    1. It was absolutely stunning. The way the resort is set up and operates, you have no choice but to relax completely.
