Spotlight on Castello di Reschio

As a lover of gatherings and celebrations, I am always on the lookout for the ideal venue, in the most special of settings – something perfect for a specific client.  From the moment I was introduced to the Reschio Estate, and its 11th century castle turned boutique hotel, I was in love!

Located in the rolling hills of the Umbrian countryside, Castello di Reschio was designed for living – from weddings to milestone celebrations, and everything in between. 

Yes, the setting is beautiful, and quintessentially Italian, however it’s the design and absolute attention to detail that wins me over – I can’t wait to visit, but I’m scared I might never leave!

Spotlight on Aman Venice

One of eight monumental palazzos on the Grand Canal, Aman Venice is my residence of choice when visiting the Italian city.  It perfectly blends historical architecture with contemporary living.  

A boutique hotel which feels more like a residential palace – I would happily move into the Maddalena Stanza Canal Grande, with its silk-covered walls and canal view.

Wellbeing is at the core of the Aman brand, and self-care is a great excuse to try their grounding massage treatment.  I personally don’t need any encouragement!

In the city that sees almost 5 million visitors a year, my sightseeing of choice is watching the world go by whilst sipping jasmine tea from the Canal Garden. 

Canal Garden

MUST DO – The Palazzo Kitchen Table is an experience not to be missed, even if it’s just to visit the hotel’s wine cellar.

My Travel Essentials

I love to travel and luckily, it’s a regular part of my job as a destination wedding planner. The proper packing of a carry-on bag is a skill that takes time to perfect. Here are a few of my all-time fav items to take with me on a trip.


7 / Madigan Sean Cashmere Wrap

This wrap is perfect for those chilly flights or to keep warm with a blazer – I don’t like traveling with coats!


6 / Scented candle – Tuberose by Dyptique

I have scented candles everywhere in my home, and they add a personal touch to any hotel room.  Tuberose is one of my favourites.


5 / Jet fuel supplements

Move over vitamins – these supplements are great pre, during, and post-trip.  What jet lag?


4 / Patchology illuminating eye gels

Instant bright eyes in 5 minutes with these eye gels.


3 / Steamery travel steamer

I’ve stained or ruined a few shirts with hotel room irons in my time, which is why I travel with my own.  Plus in Italy you’re not allowed to have an iron in your room in case of fire hazard – this saves on the pressing/dry cleaning bill. I promise you’ll love your steamer!


2 / Tumi bag by Orlebar Brown

It goes wherever I go – sturdy, reliable, trendy and fashionable.  I’ve had many envious comments from fellow passengers while queuing for a flight.  Who can blame them when you combine Tumi, Orlebar Brown and an iconic Slim Aarons print!


1 / Bose noise cancelling earphones 

I like to tune out the world when I fly. Bose does the trick!
