First Blogiversary {and hello!}

First Blogiversary | Bonjour Bride

Hello! It’s been pretty hectic at Bonjour HQ lately {all will be revealed soon!} and it dawned on me that last week was Bonjour Bride’s first blogiversary! It’s flown by and I’m sad that it went uncelebrated, but here I am, marking the occasion today.

I dabbled with the idea of starting a blog for ages, and now, given how incredible the last year has been, it seems so silly that I ummed and ahhed for so long! There are so many wonderful wedding blogs that I still love reading every week, but creating my little corner of the internet was always the dream. And while it was still is daunting, it’s an honour sharing beautiful weddings and spreading the word of wonderful suppliers. Plus it’s like ‘they’ say – you’ve got to start somewhere.

I’d love to spend all my days working on the blog, but for now this is my hobby. Monday to Friday, 9-5, I’m an Event Manager and commute into London everyday. And it’s not always easy fitting blogging into daily life. There are times when spending my evening in front of the computer is the last thing I want to do. But I love this so much. I get such a buzz when someone leaves a comment on a post, photographers contact me to feature their work and couples thank me for sharing their special day. I literally do a little dance every time it happens, so please keep them coming!

Being nominated and actually winning the Best Multicultural Wedding Blog Award was the icing on the 2016 Bonjour Bride cake! I was and am still a little in shock! You may have noticed the snazzy new badge on your right. It was completely unexpected and I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to vote for me.

I have so many plans for Bonjour Bride, and hope you’ll stick around for all the highs and lows! As always it”ll be a space to share beautiful celebrations, but there’s so much more to come. I’d love to know what you’ve liked over the last year and what you’d like to see more. You can comment below or message me on Instagram {@bonjourbride} if you’d prefer.

So, thank you for reading so far, and here’s to another great year.
