Well HOLA Brides Up North.  You’ll never guess where I am this Sunday – only Sunny Spain!  I am here on an early summer holiday with my hubby and our great friends Jane and Tom.  I’ve been here a week already and have been chilling by pool, posing on the beach, getting stuck into some great holiday reads, eating lots of olives and drinking lots of perfectly chilled Vina Sol.  Amazing.  Just what I needed. 

.

I have also found the time to do a little wedding blogging here and there – you might have noticed – and also sit back and take stock on how far Brides Up North has come in the past six months.  Its been one of the best but also the hardest half years of my life: juggling a full time legal career, penning a professional wedding blog, moving house, meeting a whole host of new wedding industry faces and getting stuck into life as a newly wed.  You know what?  I wouldn’t swap places with anyone right now.

.

I hope that you are feeling happy today too.  I couldn’t do it without you fabulous readers and Northern wedding industry supporters.  You properly rock.

.

As I have been trying to have a break from online surfing and get more into trying watching real surfing this week, I am taking a break from my usual Sunday schedule, and thought that I would take look back on some of my favourite real weddings featured right here on the Brides Up North wedding blog over the past six months.  Enjoy…

Since publishing this dreamy real wedding, Natalie of Purple Peacock has become a friend.  But I’m not biased – her wedding, at Ramside Hall Hotel was divine!

Julia Braime
Former lawyer and bride to be Julia founded Brides Up North in 2010 with a chip on her shoulder. Frustrated by the poor Northern presence in glossy bridal magazines and online, she decided to do something about it herself. Astounded by the rapid growth of her blog and brand, Julia now manages Brides Up North’s online content alongside their busy wedding exhibition season, industry events and related commissions. And she’s always, always, got a new project on the go…
