The French world number 15 capped an incredible run at the tournament with an emphatic 6-1 6-4 triumph in the final on Saturday.
The win has seen Bartoli clinch the first Grand Slam title of her career.
"Holding this trophy has been my dream since I was six years old," she told BBC Sport. "I cannot believe it and I hope to do my best again next year."
Bartoli's previous appearance in the Wimbledon final was a loss to Venus Williams in 2007.
