Stationer Vicky Trainor and Photographer Becky Mitchell are established national and regional businesses in the creative and wedding market. In January this year an exciting photo shoot ‘Rigwood Manor’ took place in an old manor house in the coastal town of Saltburn by the Sea. A shoot that was to bring together a wealth of creative suppliers who work in the wedding industry, all from the North East/North Yorkshire area, all designers and specialists with a passion for working in creative and interesting ways.  Click here and here to see the results of that very special shoot. 

.

.

Their passion for promoting northern based artists, designers and makers is now continuing through the forming of ‘The Wedding Institute’ a very visual, community spirited and exciting event, a new twist on the wedding fair.

This first event is titled ‘The Wedding Institute @ The Village Hall’ and will take place on Sunday April 29th at Saltburn Community Hall (part of the old Victorian Theatre), North Yorkshire.

.

“A wedding fair with a sprinkle of pretty and a little dash of vintage”

.

“A small intimate affair, we want you to come and ‘hang out’ with us and not just ‘visit’. We want you to leave with a refreshing cluster of new suppliers to help you with your styling and wedding planning. We would love for you to make new friends, to have fun, to laugh, to have a day out, to be totally immersed in the creativity and vintage style of organising your big day. We want to inspire you to allow your personality to come through into the styling of your day and for your wedding to be true to you and the love you have for each other”.

.

“A place where you can come and be inspired, escape with your imagination, take time to chat with suppliers, relax in our tea room at the heart of the exhibition, listen to live music, indulge in a 1950’s make-up session with our make-up artist or a pretty collection of ‘victory rolls’ styled in your hair by The Wedding Institute’s stylist”.

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…
