I have some really exciting news to share with you – Smashing The Glass has been shortlisted in the hugely prestigious Best Real Life Weddings category in the 2015 Wedding Blog Awards!
I’m beyond thrilled, and it’s an absolute honour to be named alongside so many of my favourite blogging peers (including some of the biggest blogs in the world!). Thank you to all the brides, photographers and suppliers who have submitted the most sensational Jewish weddings that have enabled STG to be nominated in the Real Weddings category.
My category includes two of the biggest wedding blogs in the world so in order to be in with a chance of winning I’ll need you to unleash your voting superpowers. It’s a 50/50 reader vote / judges’ decision situation, so your vote really will make the difference. If you have a spare moment (I promise it will take you no more than 10 seconds) I would so appreciate your support.
Some of my favourite bloggers are also up for awards, so if you have longer than 10 seconds, I know it would mean a lot to all the other nominees too.
Just head over to the Wedding Blog Awards shortlist page to vote – you’ll find me in the Best Real Life Weddings Blog category (in the top right hand corner). Voting closes on Friday 11th September, but why not do it now? It can be your good deed for the day!
Smashing The Glass has been my baby for just over two years now, and I’ve produced more than 350 posts in that time, alongside welcoming two other precious babies into my life – my darling Sacha (now 22 months) and Zara (now 4 months). It’s sure been busy but I can honestly say that blogging and motherhood have enriched my life beyond belief. I feel very lucky.
The idea for Smashing The Glass came to me in 2013 during the run-up to my own wedding when I realised that there wasn’t any one place that brought together creative ideas for style-focussed Jewish (and Jew-ish!) W-days. It became – and still is – the UK’s only Jewish wedding blog, and the only blog worldwide focussing on original and unusual Jewish ‘I-Do’s’.
I’m particularly honoured to have been nominated in the Best Real Life Weddings Blog category, as the Real Jewish weddings are the heart and soul of Smashing The Glass. I am fortunate enough to be inundated with submissions on a daily basis, and fiercely curate this section of the blog to bring you only the most inspirational and stylish Jewish (and Jew-ish) W-Days from around the world. I also take great pride in writing hugely detailed accounts of each and every real wedding to inspire you with every aspect of the very special Jewish weddings I choose to feature.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your wonderful support so far (Oh G-d, please stop me… I’m starting to sound like Gwyneth!) but it genuinely means so much to me that you share in the joint inspiration of Smashing The Glass. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for getting me this far, but now let’s win this thing!
