About us

This post is also available in: German



We are Monique and Marcus, fun-loving globetrotters and connoisseurs. We write on our blog, Beautiful Places for Lovers. It is not only for lovers, but also for those romantic souls, who simply love travelling, nature, (wild) animals, wide, open spaces, tranquility, good food, other cultures, countries, fabulous beaches and simply, life itself!

As far as our jobs make it possible, we take every opportunity to find the most beautiful places on earth as a couple. During the course of this, we discover breath-taking landscapes, friendly villages, cordial people, and charming accommodations. We would like to share with you our stories – and most importantly – our fairylike pictures.

No matter if Germany, Italy or the Seychelles – no place is too far, no culture is too foreign. We avoid hotel chains or the common large concrete accommodations for tourists. We are looking for the “originals” that every country offers. Fascinating places full of romanticism and magic, which invite you to linger and forget.

Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living” -Miriam Beard

As far as we can, we try to support social projects in our destinations and responsible travel with our blog!

Our Wedding in the Seychelles

In 2012 our dream came true, when we got married in the Seychelles. Since then, we have visited many other wonderful places and hotels that are perfect for a beach wedding, a honeymoon or just a unique journey.


Whenever we get back home after a journey, we are already looking forward to the next one. As Saint Augustine once said:

“The world is a book and those who do not travel, read only a page.”

Yes, we are obsessed – we suffer from holiday fever and wanderlust! If you feel the same, our information and hints about our trips could for sure be helpful to you. As a just married couple we have lots of recommendations for newly enamored couples, still-in-love couples and forever-in-love couples.

About Monique

I am a graphic designer and (wedding) photographer. I love traveling, the ocean, photography, landscapes where you can simply let your gaze wander, walking around paradise in the evening still wearing your summer dress, meeting interesting people and visiting beautiful hotels in dream locations. I hope to inspire couples to have a wonderful honeymoon and that more than just once!

I love accompanying couples on the most beautiful day of their lives and capturing their precious moments in emotional images – whether in Germany or abroad (www.beautiful-weddings.de). We have already accompanied some marriages photographically and cinematically in the Seychelles, Mallorca and Sardinia and it is always a dream!


About Marcus

I am an IT system administrator and every now and then, I accompany my wife Monique to photo shoots or weddings. I love traveling, the ocean, the warmth of the sun, road trips, great spas and hotels, relaxing in nature and getting to know other cultures and people. At weddings abroad, I capture the mood and emotional moments of the event on video, while Monique takes the pictures. (our videos >>)

May our blog inspire you!

Bon voyage!
Monique & Marcus
