A Festive Note from Coco…

Written by Emma Hla

As they say, that’s all folks!

Yep, this is our final post of 2015… Which is rather odd, because it seems like only yesterday I was writing the 2014 note!

I do hope you’ll excuse us as we take a few days off to enjoy the festive celebrations! Much like a good ol’ wedding, Christmas is a time for friends and family and I’m ready to thoroughly embrace everything this special time of year means.

Being a small business (when I say small, I mean just me on a day-to-day basis!) it can be a little hard to fully switch off. Whilst the boy and I aren’t shy of a holiday or two, having online businesses does mean they tend to follow us around the globe, but Christmas is the one time I do step away from the screen and relax. Plus after a decade in retail it’s still a bit of a novelty having the luxury of taking this time of year off!

2015 has been epic… We’ve discovered lots of beautiful venues (we now feature over 250 locations don’t ya know!), we’ve met and worked with some incredible suppliers on our shoots, we’ve been published in print and online across the world, we were Highly Commended for Best Big Day Inspiration at The Wedding Blog Awards, we’ve launched two new style categories and we’ve conducted our very first reader survey.

I’m so happy Coco Wedding Venues is becoming the first step for couples on their wedding planning journey and we’ve got lots of ideas and developments scribbled down for 2016!

I’m also very excited to welcome lots of newly-engaged darlings over the next few days and weeks… If you’re reading this and you’ve just got engaged then congratulations! We’ve got lots planned for you in January!

Right I’m off to buy the tree, see you back here on the 4th ok…?
