The images in this post are a cheeky peek – without giving much away! – at the amazing professional images by Joe Dodsworth Photography (dresses supplied by Curvy Bridal) from our photo shoot at Thorp Perrow, North Yorkshire, yesterday in advance of the Brides Up North Christmas Party being held there tonight.

.

You’ve probably guessed it already, given that I can’t stop talking about how gorgeous this venue is, but I am thrilled to be able to announce this afternoon that we are partnering with CWC Malings in the early summer of 2013 to open up this new wedding venue to the public and bring you a special marquee Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibition at Thorp Perrow, with exclusive access to both this beautiful stately home and it’s utterly beautiful grounds.  The date is set, so mark in in your diaries – Sunday 12th May 2013 – this is one not to miss.

.

And that’s not all! We do work hard here behind the scenes at Brides Up North you know!

North west brides, I have been promising an event your way for a while now and the time has finally come to announce our first Brides Up North event collaboration in the North West.  Hurrah!  I am over the moon to be working with the authentically vintage and fabulously stylish space that is The Bowdon Rooms in Altrincham to bring you your first ever Brides Up North Luxury & Vintage Wedding Exhibition at The Bowdon Rooms on Sunday 19th May 2013.  Another one to mark down now – VIP Bride to Be registration will be open for both events very shortly!
