That was the year that was! – Blog Review & Look back at 2014

Well that was the year that was 2014 and today I have great pleasure in sharing Plans and Presents Blog  review of the years best features.

Over the last few days and in bringing together this post I have thought “Wow”  a lot.

I have been blessed to have shared the wealth of incredible talent in our industry and so much beautiful which makes me a very lucky girl.

The year has whizzed by and can’t believe we  have marched right into a brand New Year.

It has been a year of dramatic highs and lows in my life but I have been cheered by the growth of the Blog in this past year  so I aim to build on that and make 2015 FABULOUS.

So I want to share a month by month visual journey of wedding amazingness to wet your appetite for a fantastic year to come on the Plans and Presents Blog.

So thats 2014 tied up with a bright colourful shiny bow., I hope you enjoyed my Blog review.

There was lots more gorgeous, far too much to share which I am a bit sad about as every Wedding is special.

I want to say thanks so much to everyone that has submitted to, been involved with or sponsored the Blog this year.

I value and will continue to value your readership, your support and your comments into 2015.

If there is something you think the Blog should feature, or have a suggestion on how your experience of the Plans and Presents Blog could be improved, please let me know.


Happy New Year  and hope 2015 is AWESOME !
