They're the only couple to have won Love Island and gone on to get married, so it makes perfect sense that as Love Island 2022 draws to a close, Cara Delahoyde and Nathan Massey join Hitched as our Guest Editors for the month of August!

As part of their takeover as our resident Guest Editors, Cara and Nathan from Love Island have put together some curated content based on their expert experience following three years of marriage. We asked them about the perfect honeymoon destinations, how to balance wedding planning with babies and what it's really like to be the only Love Island winners who have gone on to tie the knot. They haven't held back!

We're so excited to share their content with you through the month of August - from discussing what it's like to be a woman, navigate your relationship and parent a daughter in the age of social media to the best ways to make the most of that once-in-a-lifetime trip to Disney World, they really did discuss it all with us.

As well as their expert articles, Cara and Nathan also joined the team for a day at Hitched HQ, where they answered questions put to them by the Hitched community, and played a classic game of Mr and Mrs with us.

We invited them to take over Hitched as our editors for the month of August not only because it was a lovely way to mark their third wedding anniversary, but also because they feel like the right fit for Hitched - we love their approach to navigating their relationship, and how open they are about their real lives on social media. In an era where there is so much pressure to be perfect - and weddings aren't immune from this - we value their commitment to keeping it real. 

We hope you enjoy their takeover on Hitched as much as we've enjoyed handing over to Cara and Nathan for August.
