Having downtime over the holiday season gave my husband and I a chance to review and re-focus. It was not all sun-drenched beaches and parties for us over summer. In between travelling across South Africa, we were working on a special little project. After one and a half years of blogging, travelling back and forth to London for wedding and fashion shows and networking with some of the best minds in the industry, we are expanding the business to bring you a fresh new website. Don’t worry we’re not changing the name.
For those of you who don’t know, my journey into blogging was driven by my passion for weddings. I created my first blog with the help of a good old YouTube tutorial and I honestly thought it was the best website ever! As you can see, I’ve moved on.. Anyway, in between working and moving half way across the other end of the globe though, life has thrown me a few curveballs. However, it has been a learning experience and one that I am grateful for.
Over the past few years I have met some incredibly talented and inspiring individuals in the wedding industry and this has made the journey all the more enjoyable. I have loads more confidence and belief in myself. My calling has arrived. This is what I had set out to do and with the support of my loving husband of 5 years, we are ready for the next chapter in our lives. Our baby, ‘The Maharani Diaries.’
Whilst working on the new site, it got me thinking about something a friend told me recently about setting new year’s resolutions. Now I’m not really one for resolutions and well I guess it is a little too late in the new year to even start. One of my good friends recently gave me a really good piece of advice to follow. Choose 3 words that you will live by this year, 100%. Try and incorporate these words into your everyday life in some form or another and follow up to see if you’re being true to yourself. I thought this was genius! I took time to reflect over this and came up with my 3 words: action, honesty and winning. With that, I will take action on a daily basis, be honest in business and in life and win in all areas of my life!
So with these 3 words, I now have the strength and courage to fulfil my ambitions. I know exactly what I want to achieve this year.
As cheesy as it sounds, we are here because we love what we do. Our goal is to produce authentic and meaningful content to our readers. More than just another wedding blog, The Maharani Diaries is an experience and a place where brides and wedding industry professionals can come together to share their love for all things wedding related. We want brides to celebrate the most important day of their lives by embracing their ‘inner Maharani.’ To have fun, embrace colour and be beautiful.
Believe that you can have the time of your life during your wedding planning. Create the wedding of your dreams with us and celebrate the most important day of your life. Share your story with us. Whether it’s in the form of a wedding feature, or perhaps you’d like to share something in our forthcoming Facebook group.
So, here it is.. The big announcement has finally arrived. Our new logo! We feel that it truly speaks us and reflects our values through and through. It’s a project that is very dear to our hearts and we’d love for you to let us know what you think!
*The Maharani Diaries Facebook group will officially launch next month and new website in April. In the mean time, if you have any questions or would just like to say hello, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
