Bored with romantic getaways on private beaches and wanna put the “moon” in honeymoon? Marry into Richard Branson‘s family.

Newlywed Kate Winslet has been gifted a trip to space by the Virgin mogul after she recently married his nephew, the awesomely-named Ned Rocknroll.

Way to show up the rest of us who just bought gravy boats, dude.

Kate was initially given the gift of space travel after she helped carry Branson’s 90-year-old mother from a house fire on Richard’s Carribean retreat island.

“She wants to go into space,” Branson said. “I’m not sure she wants to go on a one-way trip to Mars, but she wants to go into space.”

Virgin Galactic, which Ned currently manages, plans to begin launching commercial flights as early as next year. The company has already sold flights to 530 people at almost $200,000 a ticket, and buyers include Russell Brand and Ashton Kutcher (whom we hope never comes back).
