May 27th marked the 15th anniversary of WordPress and a month later, myself and co-host Stuart Morrison of Mister Metric put on a party to celebrate.

WOW, what an event. If you weren’t there, you missed out! We had it all – fine food, plenty to drink, funky music and lots of WordPress goodness to soak up. And of course, no party is complete without a Photo Booth so we just had to get one of those in. It went down a storm and we’ve got lots of silly pictures of you all (to be shared very soon).

We also had WordPress cupcakes, made specially by my mother, missmacemakes, and chocolates from the amazing Thorpe Confectionary

 

There we are few competitions running throughout the night. We had a meme maker competition where attendees could caption 2 of our hubs photos to win a bottle of wine. 

 

But the moment everyone had been waiting for was our website awards ceremony. We asked you lot to send us your websites and winners received a gold medal and box of Thorpe Confectionary chocolates. 

Congratulations to all our website winners:
