A last few pictures at the Peninsular Hotel... and we are now nearly at the end of all this; only 18 more attachments still to come to complete the honeymoon...

Peter, I would love to know a bit about the planning for your luxury honeymoon.  Did you consider what the 5 star option could be and then make your choice?

The London Hilton
First Class travel to Gleneagles
Orient Express
QE2
NY Peninsular Hotel
Limousine transfers all the way

I am intrigued what other 5 star option could you have had! or is the best yet to come?

I planned it 100% around the dates of QE2's voyages!  In other words, I looked at the voyages first then built everything else around it; had the church not been available on the 30th August I had the following Saturday as a back up plan which would still allow the same Southampton departure - in that instance the Gleneagles bit would have been the last component rather than the first component.

There is still a rather big bit to come and which does tie in to QE2 in a way - have a look at the itinerary at the very start of the thread...  ;)
