My number one tip for couples that are walking down the aisle soon is to book a romantic weekend away a few weeks out from the wedding.
A romantic staycation is a must for couples in the lead up to their big day, it’s the perfect opportunity to reconnect, and be reminded of your love – the reason you’re walking down the aisle in the first place.
Because as effortlessly glamorous as weddings look on instagram, in reality they can be REALLY stressful. Tension can build with in-laws making ridiculous requests, hours spent stressing over the seating chart and wondering whether the groomsmen will ever get their suits sorted. Are these hitting home? Well you better go book your romantic staycation…
I’ve sussed out one of the most romantic luxury hotels for all you Sydney siders – or for any Australian couple who wants a weekend away! Built on and over the water, Pier One Sydney Harbour is as stylish as it gets. It’s enviable location alongside the Sydney Harbour Bridge allows for spectacular water views from guest rooms and suites – you don’t even have to leave your hotel room to check out some of Australia’s most iconic landmarks!
I stayed in the stunning Harbour View Suite which was bigger than my entire apartment – and that’s not even including the huge balcony! The finishings were of such high quality and attention to detail was second to none. What set the room apart was it seemed like home right away, everything I could possibly need was there – a Bose sound system, two televisions (just incase my partner wanted to watch sport – which he did!), a fully stocked mini bar with rocky road (yum!) and whatever else my heart desired simply a phone call away.
Just lay back and sightsee from your private balcony – I spent hours watching the ships and sailboats cruise by as I immersed myself in panoramic views of Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Opera House and Luna Park.
The views were just as breathtaking inside the room itself, through the floor to ceiling windows that wrapped around from the living room to the bedroom and the decadent open plan bathroom.
All of the staff were incredibly welcoming and no request was too big or bizarre for them to help me enjoy my stay.
So go on, indulge yourselves and enjoy a weekend away together! Relax, unwind and reconnect at Pier One, it’ll be just the refresh you need to finish that seating plan once and for all!Photo from Trip AdvisorPhoto from Expedia
