The Cotswold Blogger Awards. What a night!!

The Cotswold Blogger Awards were a little while ago now but we are still getting over the high of such a fabulous night. (Photo credit for all images goes to Kate Sergent from Luna Palm Photography.)

You voted in your hundreds and the counting up of the votes was hard work. Zaphira was a trooper and spent the day running her very successful Cotswold Baby and Toddler Show at the town hall in the day before glamming up to the max for the evening, I was exhausted and all I was doing was some modelling and a talk so I don’t know how she does it!

There were three categories that the public could vote on and one that was decided by a panel of judges, myself, young adult author Hayley Hoskins and Emma Bradley from Emma and 3 and Mum’s Savvy Savings.

The night was held at the stunning Babel in The Brewery area of Cheltenham and was kicked off with beautiful purple cocktails that the bar had created especially for the event and cake that was made by Zaphira.

We had a wonderful presenter, Harriet from Toby and Roo did a stellar job of covering up any slight mishaps or unplanned issues with her warm wit and humour.

There was music from the very talented Madi Stimpson Trio, who really added to the fun and relaxed vibe of the evening.

The night began with cocktails and cake on arrival for every guest. Everyone was beautifully turned out and there were some seriously fabulous outfits and footwear on display. A VIP area for the nominees added to the glitz of the event.

There was a short awards presentation where beautiful engraved crystal star awards were presented to the winners of each category, we also had some fabulous prizes up for grabs. A fantastic hair makeover at the very fancy and fabulous Stuart Holmes Salon for Jamie, Mama Bear of One, a meal for two at the prestigious Ivy Brasserie in Cheltenham will be enjoyed by Roanna, Ro-Eco Fashion, afternoon tea for two at the stunning Cowley Manor went to Cara, Within These Walls and a photo shoot with the uber talented Chui King Li including tips for improving photography for Steph Loves Honey. We want to say such a big thank you to all the wonderful businesses that supported us this year and to all the lovely people that came out to support these wonderful bloggers!

Then music and much chatter until the bar had to call time and ask the last remaining party-ers to leave, I call that a very good night. 🙂

Did it all go to plan? Course it didn’t! Do we have a big list of things we’ll do differently next time? You bet we do! Did we enjoy it? Very much!

Then the big question, will there be another? Planning started the very next day, there will be a few changes though so watch this space!
