Holding your wedding ceremony in the summer months of June, July and August may mean that you’re more likely to receive sunny weather on your big day but it can limit you when choosing your luxury honeymoon holiday as the school holidays mean costlier airfares, crowded beaches and the dreaded hurricane season in the Caribbean.

The tropical island of Mauritius is the perfect honeymoon holiday destination for June brides. The British Summer Season sees the exotic island at its absolute best with the temperature around a moderate 25 degrees Celsius. During this month the north of the island is the most temperate and the five star resort of The Oberoi is one of the perfect luxury destinations for honeymoons.

If you can bring yourselves to leave this incredible resort then the destination of Mauritius offers plenty for newly-weds to do on their honeymoon holidays, whether it’s a walking trip hand in hand on the bottom of the Indian Ocean or an excursion to a local rum distillery.
July Brides should consider taking their luxury honeymoons in the cosmopolitan city of Hong Kong.
